This vehicle showed up on the market in 2000, for the first time. It came as a mid-size SUV and was the first one in class that offer a third row of seats. The Acura MDX was a real refreshment in that time. In the beginning it was planned only for U.S market, but than this mid SUV was unveiled on the overseas markets as Honda MDX. The current model on the market is Acura MDX 2014 MY, which s officially the best car in its class. And that is the main reason why a new version of MDX will be built on its base. The 2015 Acura MDX model will be very similar like its predecessor, but will survive some design changes. The company intend to keep that title of best mid-size SUV in class, and because of that we can expect that new model will borrow only good thing from previous version, so there won’t be a problem to achieve that goal.
The previous versions of this great SUV have only one problem, and that was a legroom space. Because this vehicle has a three row seats, that is not something unusual. But present 2014 Acura MDX has an extended base, so the company’s engineers succeed to solve that problem. As we said before, on that base will be built the 2015 Acura MDX.
