The 2014 Acura MDX Wins Awards

March 25th, 2014 by

If you’ve been following the history of the 2014 Acura MDX since it was first talked about, you know that Acura went in a radical new direction and chose to reinvent the vehicle from the ground up rather than update the previous model. And if you’ve been following it, you know that this was incredibly successful, boosting sales and getting praised by drivers and awarded by critics.

And we have another award for you from U.S. News & World Report. They named the 2014 Acura MDX as their #1 luxury crossover SUV. You might think that would be a small category, but the MDX beat out quite a few competing models to earn that spot.

Let’s take a look.

Incredibly Efficient, Well-Equipped, and Powerful

First thing’s first, this isn’t the first time U.S. News & World Report has acknowledged the MDX. They granted the 2014 MDX their “Best Cars for the Money” title as well.

There was a time when the rule of SUVs was to pick one: power or efficiency. But Acura has changed the game, giving the MDX a 290-hp V6 engine. And the MDX with 6-Spd AT gets an EPA-estimated 28 mpg on the highway.* Powerful and efficient.

When it comes to features, the MDX is loaded with them. Here are just a few that you can find standard on Acura’s popular new SUV:

  • Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure
  • Jewel Eye LED headlights
  • Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio
  • Touchscreen infotainment system
  • Available 10-speaker stereo with built-in 15GB storage
