  • No changes to the 2013 Acura MDX

Exterior Features
The 2013 Acura MDX is a luxury midsize crossover SUV with seating for 7 passengers. The MDX enters its seventh model year since it was last redesigned in 2007, and was the first Acura to wear the now familiar shield-style grille. Standard equipment includes 18-inch aluminum wheels, xenon high-intensity discharge headlights, reversing camera, and a power tailgate.

Interior Features
The 2013 MDX features three rows of seats upholstered in leather and power-adjustable front seats with dual-level heating. Other standard features include a tilt/telescoping steering wheel with power adjustment and a 3-zone automatic climate control system. The MDX also includes a power moonroof, hands-free Bluetooth connectivity, 8-speaker stereo equipped with satellite radio and an auxiliary audio input jack, and a reversing camera.

Optional Features
Acura offers three option packages for the 2013 MDX. The Technology package includes voice-recognition navigation with real-time traffic and weather reports, premium surround-sound audio system with USB/iPod connectivity, upgraded in-dash information screen, multi-view reversing camera, and a GPS-linked climate control system. Premium Milano leather is also included in this package. The Advance package adds perforated Milano leather, heated and ventilated front seats, 19-inch aluminum wheels, adaptive cruise control with collision mitigation braking, blind-spot monitoring system, and an active damping sport suspension. In conjunction with either of these packages, the Entertainment package adds a rear-seat DVD entertainment system with wireless headphones and a remote control, heated rear seats, and a 115-volt power outlet. A number of dealer-installed accessories are also available at extra cost.

Under the Hood
The Acura MDX is equipped with a 3.7-liter V-6 engine rated at 300 horsepower. All-wheel drive--what Acura calls Super Handling AWD because of its rear-wheel torque-vectoring feature--is also standard. A 6-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters handles the distribution of power, and includes grade logic control, shift hold control, hill-start assist, and Cornering G Shift Control technologies.

Fuel Economy
EPA fuel-economy estimates for the 2013 Acura MDX are 16/21/18 mpg (city/highway/combined).

Safety
Standard safety features on the 2013 Acura MDX include 6 air bags, 4-wheel disc anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution and brake assist, traction and stability control system with trailer-sway control, and a reversing camera. Adaptive cruise control with collision mitigation braking, blind-spot monitoring system, and a multi-view reversing camera are optional.

In government tests conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the MDX received 4 (out of 5) stars for overall protection. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) named the structurally identical 2012 model a "Top Safety Pick."
