Acura MDX
Total Sales: 16,988
Honda’s luxury brand introduces an all-new MDX for the 2022 model year and it seems the new model is resonating well with consumers. Surpassing the perennially best-selling RDX, the flagship of the Acura SUV lineup had a sales increase of 90 percent in the first quarter of 2021 versus a year earlier. The MDX is built on an all-new platform with bold styling, a spacious interior and a wide range of new high-tech features. Powering the 2022 Acura MDX is a 3.5-liter i-VTEC V6 engine producing 290 horsepower, teamed with a 10-speed automatic transmission with Sequential SportShift and paddle shifters. All Acura MDX trims are equipped with the brand’s suite of advanced safety and driver-assist features called AcuraWatch. This includes forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, lane-keeping assist, road departure mitigation, a blind-spot information system and rear cross-traffic alert.
