When it comes to three-row luxury crossover SUVs, you likely don’t expect much in terms of MPG. After all, for such a large car, fuel economy certainly must come after performance, right? In the case of the 2017 Acura MDX, your assumption couldn’t be farther from the truth. With or without all-wheel drive, the 2017 Acura MDX MPG figures are quite appealing, and there’s even a hybrid model on offer. Learn more about the 2017 Acura MDX MPG capabilities with Acura of Ocean!

Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive

The 2017 Acura MDX boasts quite the all-wheel drive system. A 3.5L engine with this innovative all-wheel drive system produces 290 hp, and also accomplishes 18 mpg city and 26 mpg highway* – competitive figures for a vehicle of this size when all wheels are in play. This setup also boasts a towing capacity of 5,000 pounds and a nine-speed automatic transmission with Sequential SportShift paddle shifters. Opt for Idle Stop, too, which can help boost the 2017 Acura MDX MPG ratings and reduce fuel consumption at stoplights.

Front-Wheel Drive

When you equip your 2017 Acura MDX with front-wheel drive, its 3.5L engine with Intelligent Variable Valve Timing (i-VTEC) and Lift Electronic Control churns out 290 hp, and also achieves a compelling 19 mpg city and 27 mpg highway*. Even with these impressive figures, the MDX manages to tow up to 3,500 pounds. This model also maintains the nine-speed automatic transmission and offers Idle Stop. You don’t find many three-row luxury crossover SUVs with all of these capabilities.

Sport Hybrid SH-AWD

When you select the 2017 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid with Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD), your vehicle will run on a 3.0L engine paired with a Sport Hybrid three-motor system to generate 321 hp, while also accomplishing competitive fuel economy at 26 mpg city and 27 mpg highway*. All of this is made possible thanks to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission with paddle shifters. Hybrid or not, these are quite impressive MPG ratings for a three-row luxury crossover SUV that has all-wheel drive.
