2018 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid Cutaway

Vehicle Overview

The 2018 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid is made with advanced material grades, including hot-stamped, high-strength steel and magnesium.  In addition to strong steel, the hood and front fenders are made from lightweight aluminum, improving both handling and fuel efficiency.  Acura’s next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) front frame structure helps the MDX target top crash-test ratings in frontal collisions. Crash safety performance is further enhanced by the MDX’s one-piece hot-stamped steel door stiffener ring (comprising the A-pillar and B-pillar, roof rail and lower frame member), which helps manage collision energy in frontal offset, side impacts, and roof load management in the event of a rollover.
