Coming Soon: 2018 Acura MDX


It’s been a long wait for the remaining 2018 Acura models. The next model to arrive at Hall Acura Newport News will be the 2018 Acura MDX. We think our Norfolk and Hampton, VA customers will like what they see.


This seven seat two row SUV has long been a strong seller. Its balance of luxury and performance seems to get just a bit better with each passing year, and this year’s model is no exception.


Let’s start with what’s new for 2018. There’s a slight expansion to the color palette (new Basque Red and San Marino Red, with availability varying by trim). More significant will be some new standard equipment. This includes standard compatibility with Android Auto and Apple Car Play, and an updated 7-inch dual-screen user interface that’s faster than before. Even better, AcuraWatch driver assist and active safety features are now standard, making the Acura MDX a standout in its segment.


The same FWD and Super Handling-All Wheel Drive systems are present from last year, each powered by a fuel efficient 290 horsepower direct-injected engine.


The Acura MDX Sport Hybrid will arrive at your Newport News Acura dealership later this winter. The updates listed above in the petrol-powered model will all be available here as well. It also receives the three-motor Sport Hybrid powertrain found in the Acura RLX Sport Hybrid and the Acura NSX supercar.


Buy now or wait? If you’re tech-focused, the 2018 Acura MDX has some vital updates. If you’re safety-minded, the standard safety technology makes this a compelling buy. But you really can’t go wrong with a model from either 2017 or 2018.


But with the 2018 Acura MDX arriving soon, why not visit Hall Acura Newport News at 12501 Jefferson Ave to compare both for yourself?
