Joining the ranks of the TL, RSK, and legendary NSX Type S models, the MXD Type S is fueled by Acura's handling heritage ready to conquer new roads (and maybe some terrain without pavement).

The MDX Type S raises the bar for Acura's performance, literally. With its adjustable dynamic air suspensions, your MDX Type S can personalize its ride for the type of driving you will be doing. The MDX Type S can go from increased comfort when cruising around town, to load-leveling while hauling, to a lower and more aerodynamic stance for sporty handling, or a lifted stance for tackling some off-road obstacles.

Powered by Acura's 3.0L Turbocharged V6 making 355 horsepower, this 3-row SUV can make any driving occasion a blast. Thanks to the Super Handling All-Wheel Drive, the power will get distributed to the wheels with traction, no matter the road or pavement conditions. Activate Sport+ mode and the technological wizardry of Acura engineering turns up the fun even more.
