Acura MDX has been one of those variants with impressive handle and great styles, and we can expect good outcomes from. 2023 Acura MDX The MDX has been known as the strong three-row vehicle with handsome design– which is inspired from TLX sedan and RDX compact SUV. No wonder if the ride has been included in the premium line. It’s one of the cars whose performance and updates are always expected.
Transmission, Engine, and Performance
The new 2023 Acura MDX would be coming with V6 engine with 3.5 liter capacity that is delivering 290 hp of power, which is the similar engine arrangement as the current one. However, the car would be coming with auto 10-speed transmission– not 9-speed. The standard would be front-wheel type, while the all-wheel type would be optional. There is possibly a hybrid engine although the manufacturer hasn’t said anything about it.
For the fuel economy system, the new Acura is said to come with 19 mpg (for the city) and 26 mpg (for the highway). The all-wheel driving system reduces the mpg to 1 mpg. It should be able to reach 60 mph in around 6.3 seconds with top speed reaching up to 115 mph.
Interior Cockpit and Comfort
The interior cabin is claimed to deliver better premium feel than the current model. With leather cover for the dashboards and wood element, it looks great with metal accents. For improved comfort, the car has heated seats (on the front), leather upholstery, and auto dual-zone climate control.
The front seats are comfy and supportive, and it can be added with massage and power adjustability. You should be able to enjoy a lot of space on the first and second rows, while the third row is limited for kids. But then again, when compared to the other competitors, such as Volvo XC90 and Genesis GV80, the Acura isn’t really impressive.
The ride comes with infotainment display screen in 12.3 inches with touchpad controlled and center console arrangement. It also comes with in-dash navigation, wireless charging pad for smartphone, WiFi hotspot, and also Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capability. Audio stereo system is also included, where higher trim would get more advanced arrangement.

Pros and Cons
There have been some rumors about the new 2023 model. On the positive notes, the ride has nimble chassis with high-tech and comfortable cabin. The style and design are sharp and good-looking. On the negative notes, the third row can be limited and tight. The fuel economy system is mediocre– not impressive at all. And the infotainment touchpad is a bit fussy.
In the end, the new 2023 model may benefit from the fresh updates and redesigned work, but the end result may not be as glam (or posh) as some people expect– or as best as the competitors.
