Acura’s flagship vehicle is a handsome three-row SUV that is surprisingly agile and engaging to drive despite its bulk. The MDX finds itself in a red-hot segment, but its spry handling and slick exterior are the chief reasons you’d want to lease a 2023 Acura MDX.
Following its ground-up redesign in 2022, the MDX steps into 2023 with no visible changes. The Japanese luxury automaker continues to offer two potent engine options and six generously-equipped trim levels.
Engine And Performance
Beneath the hood of the traditional MDX is a 3.5Liter naturally-aspirated V6 that cranks out 290 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque. Front-wheel drive is standard, but you can always opt for Acura’s advanced all-wheel drive system. Shoppers looking for a daily driver will be highly impressed with this engine as it hustles the MDX to hit 60 mph in a respectable 6.4 seconds. However, the top-tier Type S model is where the MDX’s playful character takes center stage, thanks to its sporty enhancements, standard all-wheel drive, and a zesty 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 that churns out 355 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque. Both engines use a well-calibrated 10-speed automatic transmission, and Type S models can sprint from 0-60 in a brisk 5.5 seconds.
According to EPA, the standard front-wheel-drive MDX is rated 19 mpg city and 26 mpg highway. Switching to all-wheel reduces the highway rating by just 1 mpg. The Type S model manages 17 mpg and 21 mpg, respectively.
Typical of Acura lease deals, the mid-size MDX delivers a richly-appointed interior adorned with quality leather upholstery, open-pore wood trims, and other attractive design accents. Acura offers an unending list of comfort, convenience, and entertainment features. Two 12.3-inch displays are standard–one is the infotainment system, while the other is a configurable digital gauge display. The MDX seats up to seven, though its third row looks like it was designed for the kids. For shoppers seeking an interior with a sporty look and feel, the A-Spec and Type S models are your top choices.
