After teasing us with an exterior picture of the fourth-generation Acura MDX every week in the past, Acura has now adopted up with photos of the inside. The outside teaser was executed up in “Tron” model, however these inside photographs transcend outlines to disclose some particulars which are a lot much less obscured.
Acura guarantees the MDX would be the “most premium and performance-focused” model of the SUV but and has earned “elevated standing” because the model’s flagship. (Solely about 1,000 of the RLX had been offered in North America final yr, vs. 52,000 of the MDX, so it appears the large sedan acquired demoted as flagship. Aw.)
The MDX’s instrument panel is decrease and wider, Acura says, and the inside is trimmed out in actual open-pore wooden. The leather-based sprint is “hand-wrapped” with French seams. All three rows of seating surfaces are quilted, with perforations executed in a gradated design, and there may be contrasting piping and stitching. Massaging entrance seats add to the premium expertise.
Acura guarantees a wide range of new applied sciences within the cabin, together with what it calls the Acura Precision Cockpit, together with a mighty wide-looking HD infotainment display and Acura’s dynamic ELS Studio 3D sound system with 25 audio system. (The place do they put all of them?)
After Acura did nice issues with the RDX and the brand new 2021 TLX, we anticipate the MDX redesign will observe go well with in reinvigorating the model. The MDX will seemingly provide the identical engines as within the TLX: a 272-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder as the bottom engine, and a 355-horsepower turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine as an possibility. However we should always know extra about all the above when the prototype Acura MDX — albeit a very-near-production prototype — can be revealed subsequent Wednesday, Oct. 14.
