Germany’s world-famous Nurburgring track has been used as the testing and tuning grounds for the 2010 Acura MDX. It’s considered the most challenging natural road course on the planet. High-performance automobile manufacturers from all over the world count on the many tests at Nurburgring in order to hone their chassis to perfection. A 3.7L 300 horsepower VTEC V6 engine lurks beneath the hood of the MDX. This six cylinder is very impressively powerful, rivaling the performance levels from any of its V8 competitors. It’s joined by a Sequential SportShift 6-speed automatic transmission that is built with Grade Logic and Shift Hold Control technologies. The entire drivetrain operates smoothly and responsively; and thanks to its lightweight construction standards, it operates very efficiently as well.
In fact, the Environmental Protection Agency estimates that the Acura MDX 2010 will travel 16/21 mpg city/highway. It features a 21-gallon fuel tank, which means that a single fill up will allow travel for more than 400 miles. With Super Handling All-Wheel Drive, the MDX conquers curves like few other vehicles are able to. Add in the optional high tech Acura Navigation System with AcuraLink Real-Time Traffic and Weather and you have a cruising machine that extends nothing but pleasure and excitement.

One of the biggest sell points for the 2010 MDX Acura is its Super Handling All-wheel-drive(SH-AWD)system that enhances high performance levels and handling, especially on dry roads. The point is that there are no front wheel-driven, rear wheel-driven or traditional all-wheel-drive systems that are able to handle corners like the MDX. It’s truly superior. This intelligent system constantly calculates the most efficient levels of power distribution by monitoring variables including wheel speed, lateral G-force, the angle of steering and the yaw rate. Understeering is reduced, stability is increased in the vehicle’s rotation through turns becomes more fluent as the outside rear wheel is made to turn slightly faster than the other three.
