2017 Acura MDX rated ‘Best 3-Row Luxury SUV for the Money’

 

According to U.S. News and World Report, in reviewing proprietary data and industry reviews, the 2017 Acura MDX rates as the Best 3-row Luxury SUV for the money, five years running. While there are several strong contenders, the SUV still beats out the Volvo XC90, Audi Q7 and the Tesla Model X – certainly a strong playing field. The 2017 Acura MDX came out on top with exceptional driver and passenger comfort, passive and active safety features and a solid drivetrain.

The results were based on the vehicle’s overall quality, along with long-term value. When talking about value, you must mention the solid fuel economy, many standard features that aren’t standard with the competition, and three rows of comfortable seating. With a smooth ride and an excellent fit in the cabin, it’s an excellent choice. One minor downside is that it doesn’t have as much cargo room as the competition, but with above average legroom, passengers are going to be more comfortable.

The SUV is even better than in year’s past. With a refreshed and updated exterior, along with added standard tech for the 2017 model, it’s easy to see why the 2017 Acura MDX is highly rated. While not out yet, a hybrid version is in the cards and will be available later in the year. If you have never driven an Acura MDX, you should check one out. By getting behind the wheel, playing around with all the technology and finally hitting the open roads, you are sure to fall in love. So hurry and take one for a spin at Chapman Acura. You are sure to love it.

While it’s one thing to win accolades and awards and get recognition, it’s another thing to see raw numbers. The Acura MDX is rated at 19 MPG in the city and 27 on the highway, with most people getting around 22 MPG combined. With the direct-injection, 3.5 liter V6, which makes 267-lb-ft of torque and 290 horsepower, you won’t be driving around in a bulky and underpowered machine. No, the 2017 Acura MDX will get you from 0-60 MPH in 6.2 seconds.

Power is fun, but if you can’t control it well, then it is all for nothing. But with the all-wheel drive system, the SUV really feels like a car, rather than a bulky SUV. It’s been described as extremely quiet, and the suspension does all the hard work and takes on bumps, minor and major, with ease. Off-roading, this SUV does surprisingly well, especially considering how many luxuries and amenities are included. At the same time, while lacking a bit in cargo space, it’s extremely roomy for passengers, even those over six-feet tall.

If you are looking for the best 3-seat, luxury SUV on the market, you don’t have to look any further than Acura. The 2017 Acura beats out a lot of great competition, and it provides a car-like feel, plenty of power and a lot of comfort, all at a lower price than most of its competitors.
