There was a time that a hybrid was just about improved fuel economy, but a vehicle like the MDX Sport Hybrid is an example of the performance that a hybrid system can provide. This 3-row luxury SUV was refreshed for the 2017 model year with updated styling and an array of high-tech features, but most impressive is the hybrid powertrain. The MDX Sport Hybrid uses a 3.0-liter V6 engine teamed with one electric motor on the front axle and two additional electrical motors on the rear. Total output is 321 horsepower while handling is further enhanced by the system’s ability to direct power to individual rear wheels.
