Why the Acura MDX is the Perfect Luxury SUV for Winter Road Trips

2017-acura-mdxThe 2017 Acura MDX provides a symphony of features and design elements that harmonize to make it the perfect luxury SUV for long winter road trips. No other vehicle can offer the combination of performance, comfort, and utility that the MDX does. You also get the benefit of up to seven seats and 90.9 cubic feet of maximum interior cargo capacity.

Philadelphia, Doylestown, and Lansdale drivers can read on to learn more about why the MDX is so capable both in winter and for long trips. Then you can check it out in person by scheduling a test drive at an Acura dealer near you.

SH-AWD Makes Light Work of Snow

The biggest advantage that 2017 Acura MDX owners have is access to one of the most advanced all-wheel drive systems. Acura’s available Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system predicts traction slippage and responds instantaneously by diverting power as needed.

This system not only provides additional traction in deep snow, but it also allows the MDX to power nimbly through turns. Independent torque vectoring can isolate one wheel or all of them to keep the MDX composed through a variety of conditions.

Comfortable Seating for Seven or Indulgent Seating for Six

Even though the 2017 Acura MDX offers the fun performance and poise of a sport sedan, it can still seat up to seven in its large interior. A standard third row can provide seating for two people with 35.6 inches of headroom and 28.1 inches of legroom.

Third-row passengers can enter easily using the One-Touch Smart Slide Walk-In feature, which automatically tilts the second-row seats down and slides them forward at the push of a button.

With the Advance package, second-row passengers are treated to luxurious captain’s chairs, which provide 36.6 inches of legroom and 38.3 inches of headroom to comfortably seat adults. This package seats six and includes an additional sliding center storage console as featured in the front row of other configurations.

Cavernous Space for You and Your Luggage

Going on a winter trip means packing heavy, whether that’s because of snowboarding equipment, Christmas presents, extra luggage, or all the above. Regardless of what you need to carry, the 2017 Acura MDX has you covered.

A generous 15.8 cubic feet is available even with all three rows up—more sizeable than most full-sized sedans’ trunks. In addition, all seats can fold flat to create up to 90 cubic feet of luggage space. With just the third row folded, 43.4 cubic feet is available.

Acura also offers genuine accessories like roof rails, roof cargo storage, bike racks, snowboard racks, and ski racks, all enhancing your ability to carry everything you need conveniently and in style.

Interior Comforts Aplenty

2017-acura-mdx-technologyWith soft heated leather seats, 10-way power adjustment with memory, tri-zone climate control, humidity control, and available accoutrements like a heated steering wheel and a dual-screen rear entertainment system, riding in an Acura MDX is almost as inviting as snuggling up next to the fire in your own home.
