  • 2018 #mdxsporthybrid features an upgraded user interface with standard Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration
  • Two new sporty red exterior colors

The 2018 #acura #mdxsporthybrid begins arriving at #acura dealerships tomorrow, boasting an upgraded user interface and additional in-vehicle technology plus two new exterior colors, Basque Red Pearl II and San Marino Red. Pricing begins at a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP1) of $52,100 (excluding $995 destination and handling). Distinguishing the Sport Hybrid from the rest of the MDX lineup is the brand's signature three-motor Sport Hybrid Super Handling-All Wheel Drive system, which it shares with the 2018 NSX supercar and RLX Sport Hybrid.

The #acura MDX is the best-selling three-row luxury SUV of all time2 and has recently claimed AutoWeb's 2018 Buyer's Choice Award for the Luxury SUV category.

The 2018 MDX Sport Hybridshowcases Acura's Precision Crafted Performance DNA with its 3.0-liter, i-VTEC V6 engine and three-motor Sport Hybrid Super Handling-All Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®) system. With 321-peak horsepower3 and 289 lb.-ft. total peak torque on tap, the #mdxsporthybrid is Acura's most powerful production SUV ever built. And, despite turning out 30 additional horsepower and a 45 percent higher EPA city fuel economy rating as compared to the conventionally-powered MDX SH-AWD, the #mdxsporthybrid carries a nominal premium of only $1,500 over the conventional MDX SH-AWD®.

Two feature-rich model grades are offered: #mdxsporthybrid with Technology Package and the #mdxsporthybrid with Advance Package. Both grades feature unique interior trim, stainless steel sport pedals and wood interior accents. Technology Package models include seating for seven, while the range-topping Advance Package features a 6-passenger interior with second-row captain's chairs and a large second-row center console in place of a three-person bench seat.
