  • MDX is America's best-selling three-row luxury #suv of all time

The restyled and refreshed 2017 #acura #mdx, the best-selling three-row luxury #suv of all time, goes on sale tomorrow at #acura dealerships nationwide with a starting MSRP of $43,950. The 2017 #acura #mdx raises its game with bold new exterior styling, larger wheel and tire options and an expanded complement of premium features and technologies, including the AcuraWatch™ suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies, now offered as standard equipment on all 2017 #mdx models, a first in the luxury #suv segment.

Featuring refreshed exterior styling inspired by the #acura Precision Concept, the 2017 #mdx is highlighted by the new face of #acura, the bold and distinctive Diamond Pentagon grille. Integrated with a more sculpted hood, front fascia, front fenders and revised Jewel Eye™ headlights, the result is a more "executive athletic" appearance for Acura's class-leading luxury #suv. Additional styling updates include new chrome rocker panel trim, a revised rear bumper and skid garnish, and the return of visible dual exhausts with bright finishers.

"We're raising the #acura MDX's game for 2017 with premium new features and technologies that luxury #suv buyers want, complemented by bold, new styling we know they're going to love," said Jon Ikeda, vice president and general manager, #acura Division. "Backed by its high-performance credentials, the 2017 #mdx has advanced its competitiveness and will continue its legacy of leadership as the best-selling three-row luxury #suv in America."
