Is the 2017 Acura MDX the Best SUV for Families?
The 2017 Acura MDX, now available to Chicagoland families, is the best-selling three-row luxury SUV of all time, and it’s obvious why. The MDX offers ample space, enhanced comfort, and advanced features for the whole family.
Long road trips and running kids to school and practice can be stressful for parental chauffeurs. The Acura MDX is equipped with several features to make your journey enjoyable and comfortable.
- Available with the Entertainment Package, the MDX comes equipped with a rear audio entertainment system to keep the kids busy on long trips. A full VGA is capable of hours of entertainment in a 9-inch version with the Technology Package and a 12-inch version in the Advance Package. The rear audio entertainment system is complete with rear-door sliding sunshades to reduce glare and wireless headphones so kids can enjoy a movie while Mom or Dad gets to choose their own entertainment in peace. HDMI compatibility is available on the Advance Package.
- Tri-zone climate control allows the driver, front passenger, and rear passengers to adjust the heat or air-conditioning to their own preferences for maximum comfort for all in the cabin. Adjustable vents in the second row allow passengers to adjust the direction of the airflow. Best of all, when you approach the MDX with your key remote, it automatically adjusts to your preferred climate settings. Tri-zone climate control is available on all trim levels.
- Space and comfort are hallmarks of the MDX. The Advance Package features second-row heated captain’s chairs for older kids allowing for a total capacity of six passengers. The second-row center console offers extra storage and dual USB charging ports to keep gadgets juiced on the go. Standard, Technology, and Entertainment Packages feature second-row seating for three for a maximum capacity of seven. The cushions sit higher for great views. The second-row seats on all models have an adjustable seatback angle and can slide backward or forward about 6 inches, allowing for more legroom and storage.
- Loading and unloading is made simpler on the Standard, Technology, and Entertainment Packages with third-row access one-touch slide walk-in, which allows for the second-row seat to fold down and slide forward with the push of a button, making loading in groceries and sports equipment while fumbling with the seats a thing of the past.
