2015 Acura MDX Review, Price and Pictures – Welcome to Neocarsuv.com, we will provide the latest information about the Acura MDX. 2015 Acura MDX is one brand new car from Acura that was released in 2015. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2015 Acura MDX.
For shoppers who aren’t terribly interested in heading off-road, but want a utility vehicle that is luxurious and enjoyable, but also practical and sensible, the 2015 Acura MDX should land near the top of their lists. The MDX has evolved over the last decade into a responsive, sharp-looking SUV that doesn’t make many compromises especially if you’re looking for reliability and strong resale value.
The Acura MDX has always had a special appeal as a minivan alternative a premium grade, family-friendly crossover that offers threes rows of seating, a lower load floor, and many of the conveniences found in less stylish family vans. There may be questions about where Acura’s sedan lineup is headed, but the MDX appears to be more focused on its goals than ever.
2015 Acura MDX Price | Pricing for the new 2015 Acura MDX has been set at $42,565 – $56,780 based on current exchange rates. If there are changes on the 2015 Acura MDX we will notify you as soon as possible, so keep follow our blog.
An all-new structure aids that refinement, but also more importantly it’s already resulted in some top-tier safety ratings. Additional advanced-technology safety features include Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Forward Collision Warning (FCW). a Wide View Camera, and a Blind Spot Information system. A driver’s knee bag rounds out an already complete safety set, and there’s also Lane Keeping Assist (LKAS), which will provide a gentle, proactive nudge to the steering to help you stay in your intended lane.
The 2015 Acura MDX is offered in four different grades: base MDX, Tech, Tech Entertainment, and Advance Entertainment. Each of those four models can be specified with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. At the top of the line, the Advance Entertainment gets Lane Keeping Assist, front and rear parking sensors, keyfob-integrated remote engine start, adaptive cruise control with a low-speed follow feature, collision mitigation braking, the wide-screen rear entertainment system with HDMI, the top 12-speaker ELS audio system, roof rails, and Milano premium perforated leather upholstery with ventilated front seats.
The Acura MDX gets the same button-filled, luxury interior as last year. The second row seats slide and recline, with 6 inches of fore and aft movement. Step-in height is low and access to the third row is made easy with the “One-Touch Walk-In” button that moves the second row out of the way.
On the technology front, the MDX has push-button start, those crazy bug-eye headlights, an 8-inch touchscreen and a 432-watt sound system. The advance package adds lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, remote start and a DVD system with HDMI input.
We’re still not sure about the ‘beak’ front end on Acura vehicles, but we think that it’s much more flattering on the brand’s utility vehicles and this new MDX than on its sedans. A relatively simple front airdam design, complemented by crisp matte chrome details and ‘jewel-eye’ LED headlamps, altogether gives this model a streamlined, elegant look. From the back, the MDX runs the risk of being generic, with its integrated tailpipe and ‘lined’ LED lamps, but it all fits in.
From a design standpoint, the dash, with its sloping, tiered look and V-shaped center stack, is a step more in pace with those in Acura’s sedans. We’re not entirely in love with the center stack’s functionality, but we like the way the entire dash fits in with the rest of the cabin, from a design standpoint. Acura has paid much more attention to properly coordinated materials and trims inside, and it shows.
In all honesty, the prototype and the production models are very similar, but Acura basically just toned down the extreme stuff. Things like the LED bars on the front and rear bumpers are nixed. Additionally, Acura gave the front skirt a more traditional look; as opposed to the futuristic treatment it received in the prototype. From the side, the prototype and the production models are nearly indistinguishable, as they both carry almost the identical profile and the rims are identical.
While the base audio system includes eight speakers and 432 total watts, the premium Acura/ELS audio system now actually comes in three configurations. With the Technology Package, you get ten speakers and 501 watts. Step up to the Tech and Entertainment Package, with its DVD rear entertainment system, and there are eleven speakers and 529 watts. Then at the top of the line, with the Advance Package (and its 16.2-inch Ultra-Wide HDMI entertainment system), you get twelve speakers and 546 watts. Streaming apps are now available through Aha and Pandora.
Separate options include back-up sensors, an engine-block heater, a cargo cover, a cargo mat and tray, wooden steering-wheel and shift-knob trim, a first-aid kit, and a few appearance accessories (side molding, running boards, garnish trim, and mudguards).
The 2015 Acura MDX is powered by the brand’s direct-injected 3.5-liter V-6 engine, producing 290 horsepower. It’s connected to a six-speed automatic in all versions of the MDX, and that transmission can be paddle-shifted from the steering wheel.
Acura has worked to mitigate torque steer by changing the geometry in front, reducing the driveshaft angles and the center offset. The powertrain itself has been lowered, too. Likewise, the former model’s trailing-arm rear suspension setup has been dumped, in favor of a multi-link, coil-over-damper layout.
Engine choice remains the same as last year; all buyers will get a 3.5-liter, direct-injected DOHC V6 making 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque. The engine gets Honda’s Variable Cylinder Management system that can adjust the number of cylinders being used for more efficiency. A six-speed automatic sends power to either two or all four wheels. The 2015 MDX (two-wheel drive) gets an EPA rating of 20 mpg in the city and 28 on the highway.
