2017 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid Package Washington D.C.
Benefits of the 2017 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid
You could just get any old SUV for you and your family, but with such a large investment, it makes sense to turn to the precision craftsmanship of Acura. The 2017 Acura MDX received a refresh to its design to make it more eye-catching than ever, but its beauty is far more than just a new coat of paint. The model already earns high praise for its reliability and high resale value, but once you sit behind the wheel, you’ll hardly consider selling it anyway. Now, it’s becoming an even more impressive choice with the new 2017 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid Package, which includes impressive power output figures and much better fuel economy.
Is the 2017 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid Package worth it? You’ll quickly find that the powertrain not only offers a higher combined system output than the already beloved 3.5-liter V6, but its fuel consumption is drastically reduced in the Hybrid. It’s basically the best of both worlds. For 2017, the Sport Hybrid Package is only offered with the Technology or Advanced Packages, but you’ll note that when you upgrade, the SH-AWD is a standard. After all, it wouldn’t make sense to have the best performance when it comes to power, only to find that you need to upgrade once again if you want the advanced torque-vectoring all-wheel drive system that makes the MDX so fun to drive.

Considering Acura is well-known for staying up-to-date on all the latest technology and modern amenities, it’s only natural that the 2017 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid option has been long awaited. As much as we love fuel efficient vehicles, so many shoppers rely on the cargo space and extra seating found in midsize SUVs. If you love the outdoors, you may also require a model that won’t disappoint when it comes to power.
The Sport Hybrid has a 3.0-liter V6 engine that is paired with a 3-motor hybrid for a total combined system output of 321 horsepower* and 289 pound-feet of torque. For comparison, the standard gasoline engine is a 3.5-liter V6 that delivers 290 horsepower* and 267 pound-feet of torque.
We all know that one of the main concerns with hybrid models isn’t just that they’ll feel underpowered, but that they’ll also be more efficient. The Acura MDX Sport Hybrid manages to offer an exhilarating ride, while also using less fuel to take you from point A to point B. A standard front-wheel drive MDX gets an EPA-estimated 19 city and 27 highway** mpg rating, but the Sport Hybrid is rated at 26 city and 27 highway mpg. If you’re doing nothing but cruising the interstate, maybe you won’t notice the improvement – but that seems unlikely for DC area drivers.
