Edmunds Inside Line took an Acura to the track, but it wasn’t the TL or the TSX. You won’t often find a 7-passenger SUV running the slalom, but in this test the 2011 Acura MDX proved to be more than accommodating. With impressive numbers like these, it would give your typical sedan a run for its money.
Inside Line Track Test Results:
0-60 with 1-ft Rollout(sec): 7.0
1/4-Mile(sec @ mph): 15.4 @ 90.8
Skid Pad(g): 0.84
2011 Acura MDX Continues to Deliver Benchmark Performance, Comfort and Control
Cutting-Edge Technology Features Make the 2011 MDX a Class Leader
TORRANCE, Calif. – 08/18/2010
The award-winning Acura MDX luxury SUV continues to be the category benchmark for styling, performance and safety for 2011. Currently in its second generation, the MDX offers tremendous appeal thanks to a wide array of available technology features designed to make driving more enjoyable, more productive and safer.
The 2011 MDX continues to deliver eye-catching looks as a result of Acura’s signature design front grille, a bold front fascia, a rear fascia with integrated polished stainless-steel exhaust finishers, sleek taillights with bright LED lights, and bold 18-inch diameter 5-spoke aluminum wheels. An available Advance Package (with items such as the Active Damper System and 19-inch 7-spoke aluminum wheels) further enhances handling while retaining the comfortable, quiet and controlled ride quality expected of a luxury vehicle.
