Facelifted Acura MDX Revealed With New Tech

Author: |

The redesigned Acura MDX for 2025 boasts significant upgrades across its technology, design, safety features, and performance. One of the most notable improvements is the introduction of an all-new infotainment system featuring a spacious 12.3-inch touchscreen display integrated with Google services. This intuitive system not only provides access to Google Assistant, Maps, and Play Store but also supports wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, enhancing connectivity and convenience for users.

Tech enthusiasts will appreciate the latest generation of AcuraLink, which offers a Wi-Fi hotspot, over-the-air updates, and connected features like remote locking/unlocking and remote start. The elimination of the True Touchpad Interface has allowed for a redesigned center console, offering increased storage and a more accessible wireless smartphone charger. Additionally, audio systems have been upgraded, with the entry-level unit gaining two extra speakers and the premium Bang & Olufsen system featuring up to seven additional speakers.

Externally, the MDX receives updates to its grille, front bumper, headlights, and taillights, along with new color options. Higher-end variants boast new 20-inch wheels and refinement updates for a quieter cabin, including additional insulation and laminated rear door glass. Safety enhancements include a new camera and radar system for improved detection, better blind-spot information sensors, a Lane Change Alert function, rear seatbelt reminder system, and Adaptive Cruise Control with Cornering Speed Assist.

For 2025, Acura introduces the A-Spec variant with an Advance Package, combining sporty exterior styling with a luxurious interior featuring quilted leather massaging front seats, heated second-row seats, a heated steering wheel, and a head-up display. The MDX Type S receives similar updates but is distinguished by a frameless Diamond Pentagon grille, an aggressive front bumper with gloss black accents, and new 21-inch wheels. Inside, redesigned front seats with Ultrasuede bolsters, a 31-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system, and safety enhancements such as Active Lane Change Assist and Front Cross Traffic Warning are featured.

Both models are powered by either a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 producing 355 hp and 479 Nm of torque (exclusive to the Type S) or a standard 3.5-liter V6 with 290 hp and 362 Nm of torque. Both engines are mated to a ten-speed automatic transmission, with the brand's Super Handling all-wheel drive system available.
