Overview Information

The MDX has been a popular SUV since its introduction in 2001. The MDX provides a luxury car feel with excellent ride, maneuverability, and a cabin that is roomy and comfortable for up to seven passengers. The MDX is now offered in FWD, AWD, and Sport Hybrid models. Most MDX models equip a 3.5l V6 engine and 9-speed automatic transmission.
