SUV Acura: Successful Differentiation

Hybrid SUVs aren't exactly new to the automotive market, but they usually require significant compromises: they're either very expensive or not very fun to drive.

Honda has recognized this opportunity and has done with the Acura MDX Hybrid what its competitors have failed to do: create a family vehicle that is both fuel efficient and fun to drive, while being less expensive than comparable models offered by the competition.

The Acura MDX Hybrid is a green, spacious and comfortable vehicle, offering three rows of seats for a total of seven, all designed for adults.

Green Performance

Numerous manufacturers confuse being green with sacrificing performance. Not Acura. The MDX Hybrid comes with a 3-liter, 6-cylinder engine capable of producing over 320 horsepower and 289 lb-ft of torque.

The electric portion of the powertrain consists of three electric units and a battery that is largely responsible for the fun of driving this SUV. The battery powers the rear wheels and Acura's signature SH-AWD system in a timely and intelligent manner.

This transmission system has been praised by many automotive critics for its excellent responsiveness. Automotive journalist Sylvain Raymond confirmed this in an article written for RPM:

"It is without a doubt one of the most efficient systems offered on the market.
It keeps us safe on the road, no matter what the conditions."

The whole thing is complemented by a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission that you won't even feel because the shifting is so smooth. This sets it apart from many competitors who use CVT transmissions instead.

Better Fuel Efficiency

Of course, the presence of hybridization doesn't just help with performance, but also with fuel economy. In this case, the MDX is about 25% more fuel efficient than its gasoline counterpart.

In numbers, this means that it goes from an average of 11.0 L/100 km to about 9.1 L/100 km. This is highly suitable for a vehicle of this size!

In short, here are the technical data of the new Acura MDX hybrid:
