The 2015 Acura MDX’s exterior is pretty much the same as that of the previous generation. The only change over that model is the fact that the new car gets a smaller grille that is also more aerodynamic. This reduces wind noise by a considerable margin when going over 50 MPH. Optimized grille will also allow better air supply to the engine bay and better cooling.

Speaking of performance, the engine is the same 3.5 liter V6 unit that is found in the previous generation. It now offers almost 300 hp, to be correct 290 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque. Performance is good too, the 2015 Acura MDX is able to easily get to 60 MPH while the top speed is limited to around 125 MPH. Fuel consumption, considering this is quite a large car is good hovering around the 25 average MPG. In city you can expect to see 20 mpg while on the highway it will be about 20 mpg.

Transmission and drivetrain wise, this car is either front wheel drive or four wheel drive. The front wheel drive model is quite slow to respond while the four wheel drive car is perfect in every way except fuel consumption which is almost 10% higher than the standard car. Unfortunately there is only one 6 speed automatic transmission in 2015 Acura MDX that is good but lacks the speed of a manual. We know that many drivers would like to see manual transmission since it will give much better control over the car.

Release Date Of 2015 Acura MDX

In conclusion, this new 2015 Acura MDX is a nice improvement over the previous generation and it remains a good competitor for most cars in its class. Price remained the same and for a base model expect to pay around 42.565$. Higher trim levels with more equipment will cost you more than $56,000. The car will start to be available in showrooms somewhere around the start of next year, so be ready for it!
