Acura MDX 3rd Row Seating When it comes to smart seating for seven, the 2018 Acura MDX deserves a spot on your shopping list. The look is luxurious, the cabin is spacious, and top technologies fulfill the owner’s contemporary expectations.

The Acura MDX has a secret. It uses theater style elevation to give passengers a better perch. Kids can see out the windows better, and teens can claim more legroom. The second row can slide fore and aft, maximizing legroom or providing it to the back row. Reclining seats, dual USB ports, and personal climate controls add to the feeling that the second row is just as important as the first. The third row is easy to reach thanks to a push-button slide mechanism on the second-row. These passengers are provided with dedicated air ducts, seatback storage pockets, cup holders, and a USB charging port.

MDX models start off with real leather upholstery. Among standards that drivers will most appreciate, you'll find a power-adjusting steering column and a comfortable entry power chair. The Technology package adds GPS-linked climate control to the standard tri-zone programmable HVAC system. The Advance package has rich wood trim and perforated Milano leather seats. The power-adjustable seats can be heated and ventilated. This package adds manual sunshades and second-row Captain’s Chairs with a power-heat function. Third-row sunshades are on the MDX menu as well.

Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration are part of the standard infotainment system. Pandora and Aha are part of the system’s streaming audio. The Tech package added navigation with 3D views, Real-time Traffic, and Traffic Rerouting.

For back seat entertainment, you’ve got two choices. The first is a 9-inch screen with DVD capability, a wireless remote and headphones. The second choices are the 16.2-inch screen. This ultra-wide drop-down display puts wide-ratio movies where everyone in the back can see them. You can even split the screen and play two different videos. A second-row control center offers access to a 110-volt outlet. Teens can use it for their laptop, tablet or game console. An HDMI input is also available.

Leading its class, the MDX is the only luxury midsize SUV to have a complete suite of crash avoidance features. AcuraWatch includes road departure mitigation, a system not even offered on rivals. The standard lane keeper consists of an assist to bring the SUV back into its lane. The collision mitigation braking may be triggered by a forward collision warning or a pedestrian sighting. Adaptive Cruise Control is sure to be the favorite of family drivers. With this in use, the SUV can slow and go, independently matching speed to travel conditions.

The standard multi-view rearview camera and tilt-down side mirrors make it easier to handle reverse maneuvers. MDX Advance packages supply a Surround Vision camera while Tech packages add a blind spot system.

Families are sure to appreciate the little touches that make owning an MDX more hospitable. LED puddle lights invite you to enter and exit the vehicle safely. The Smart Key unlocks as you approach and locks as you walk away. It can even unlock the rear doors. The standard power-operated tailgate makes loading easier. The front windows and windshield are made with acoustic glass to muffle road noise. Ambient lighting makes the cabin more cheerful at night.
