  • Acura MDX

    Chicago drivers shopping for the top luxury SUVs of 2017 need to start their search with two models: the 2017 Acura RDX and 2017 Acura MDX. Available now at a Chicagoland Acura Dealer near you, these two luxury crossovers have come to define their respective classes. Nothing will compare to a test drive, but we want to give you an overview of them so it’s clear why so many drivers prefer them.

2017 Acura RDX

This stylish Acura is a favorite of area drivers and critics alike, offering a powerful yet fuel-efficient V6, a long list of standard and available features, and a comfortable interior. As a five-passenger crossover, the 2017 Acura RDX is one of the most elegant family and commuter vehicle options in its class.

Styling

The smooth silhouette of the RDX has been honed by wind tunnels, with each curve geared toward both style and performance. Features like the Acura Jewel Eye LED headlights, a wide variety of alloy wheels, and wraparound taillights accentuate the natural head-turning style of this stunning new crossover.

Packages

The RDX is available with the AcuraWatch Plus Package for upgraded safety features, the Technology Package for a boost in connectivity, and the Advance Package, which takes the RDX to new heights of technology and luxury.

Standard Features

Its standard amenities keep the RDX as one of the most competitive models in its class, including features like Bluetooth HandsFreeLink for phone and audio, a multi-angle rearview camera, a power moonroof, premium leatherette upholstery, and more on every model.

Reviews

  • Edmunds – “The Acura RDX is one of our top picks in the segment. It’s a well-made, well-equipped compact SUV that is a clear, premium step up.”
  • Cars.com – “On the highway, the ride is fairly smooth and very quiet overall, with good isolation from wind and road noise.”

2017 Acura MDX

There aren’t many luxury three-row crossovers on the market anymore, and we think there’s one clear reason for that: the Acura MDX. After years on the market, Acura’s crossover has pushed competitors out of its class, and we think that with just a look at the 2017 Acura MDX, you’ll understand why we think it’s one of the top luxury SUVs of 2017.
