The 2018 Acura MDX has been green lighted and the new model is expected to be as exciting as ever. This car is said to be the future of the Acura MDX model and although it is an upgrade of the old one it has been redesigned to take the model well into 2020. The exterior is intriguingly forcefully forward designed but held back a little to fit in with the present day aesthetics. The 2018 Acura MDX will have a hybrid version, which is expected to be even more aggressive. The old Plastic Hybrid Acura is being replaced with a better version. It seems Honda has been putting a lot of thought and resources to improving this model. Acura ranges from modernizing the body structure to using never before used materials that weigh less are strong and help get the fuel consumption of the new engines down. These are exciting times for car designers and Honda is making a huge leap with the 2018 Acura MDX.
2018 Acura MDX – Redesign Interior and Exterior
The new 2018 Acura MDX will be made with lightweight materials like aluminum and carbon fiber. The car will have a new grille that fundamentally looks different even if it has the same measurements. It will have new taillights and guards fitted and refreshed headlamps. It is said that the Acura MDX 2018 will have the shape that will inform the shape of all the new cars designed in its class putting it as a forerunner that every other competitor should try to outdo, but as things look now, Honda is on another trajectory and will not be letting anyone come close. The outline is fashionable and slick but it’s the interior design that has become a source of much speculation. It expected that the interior will have all the comfort and trimmings of a luxury car but what those are is not yet confirmed. Going by the announcement that this is the car for the future with present-day sensibility we can expect the 2018 Acura MDX to have the same technology we find in modern cars like ventilated seats, generous cabins, consoles fitted with touchscreens, upgraded infotainment system, climate control, satellite radio, Bluetooth and possible Wi-Fi connectivity, USB port and other knobs ports and dials. The new features and devices will offer extra security features we have seen in other high-end car models.

AS excited as everyone might be about the prospect of seeing the new 2018 MDX nothing has been confirmed yet. What we have is a concept car and a lot of rumors about the car. It is expected that the car might make its debut towards the end of 2017 and hopefully, we should heave more information about what it looks like or what it has or doesn’t have. The same thing can be said about the price. We will have to wait and see.
