After more than two decades and one million units sold since MDX debuted, Acura is set to unveil the most ambitious redesign of America’s all-time best-selling 3-row luxury SUV, yet. The fourth-generation MDX, debuting in prototype from 14 October will usher-in new levels of Acura design, performance, technology and craftsmanship, assuming the mantle as the brand’s new flagship model.
The original MDX was the industry’s first three-row SUV to be based on a unibody platform, offering superior comfort, space and driving performance than existing truck-based SUVs. The model earned critical praise, including the 2001 North American Truck of the Year and the 2001 Motor TrendSUV of the Year awards.
A teaser image and short video were released on 1 October, highlighting the sharply sculpted beltline running along the perimeter of the wider, lower and longer MDX, connecting the ‘Jewel Eye’ LED headlights at the front to the Chicane LED taillights in the rear.

“This all-new MDX will take us into new territory in terms of performance, prestige and emotional appeal,” said Jon Ikeda, vice president and Acura brand officer.
