The latest generation of the Acura MDX presented us with extreme changes. Starting with the design that became more sharp and aggressive, the MDX also looked more sporty and seemed to become more compact as well. Not too long ago, the hybrid power plant was released.

The new Acura style (in their latest models) includes an aggressive line of the body, full LED headlights that almost look like insect eyes, and sharp edges.

In what concerns to the 2018 Acura MDX, it actually suffered a hard redesign, especially when you’re comparing with the previous generation. Due to the new C-pillar form and to the lower ground clearance, the 2018 Acura MDX is looking more like a sporty hatchback than an SUV.

Despite this, you just can’t forget that it includes 7 seats. And the stretched rear doors are great for the entire family.
