The most recent 2017 Acura MDX will hit the market redesigned in almost every segment. One month ago we had only one teaser picture of this model, but today we have a lot of interesting things and useful information about it. The newest MDX was presented at the New York Auto Show this year. There is going to be a lot of redesigns, starting from its exterior design to the nicely designed interior design. Also, the engine capabilities are better than before, and we can now expect the addition of hybrid option which is excellent. We can anticipate numerous standard high-tech features as well as excellent standard safety features.
2017 Acura MDX – Aggressive Appearance:
From the outside, the anticipated 2017 Acura MDX looks very nice, and at the first glance, we can notice more aggressive appearance. There is going to be some slight redesigns on its exterior design. The front fascia is very appealing, and here we can see slightly modified hood fitted with new body lines. The front grille will be very attractive, and it will be constructed in a diamond pentagon shape. Below this good looking grille, we can see very nice and slightly modified front bumper fitted with large air intakes located on each side. Here we can see and small fog lights. The same technology powers the headlights, the taillights, and the fog lights and that is updated LED system. From the sides, this model looks the same as its predecessor, and here we can also notice huge 18-inch alloy wheels.
The interior design of the upcoming 2017 Acura MDX is very luxurious and elegant. The presence of high-quality materials inside the cabin makes this model even more appealing. We can expect aluminum, leather upholstery of course and perhaps wood in some parts. Two displays are provided, the first one is for the navigation system and the second one is for infotainment. All seats are wrapped in the premium and brown colored leather. The entire dashboard will be probably finished with brown color. Some of the other standard features inside the cabin are air condition (3-zone climate), leather and tilt and telescopic steering wheel with so many buttons, very supportive front seats (probably 8-way power), interior air filtration, adaptive cruise control, for better entertainment there will be 8 total speakers, AM/FM stereo, etc.
