If you are looking for a crossover SUV, you know that you have plenty of options. Buyers are scooping up crossovers as they love the versatility and ease of driving them, and they are comfortable too. While the field is crowded, one name that stands out is the Acura MDX. Here are a few reasons why you should strongly consider buying one.

First and foremost, if you are buying an SUV, gas mileage is probably not high up on things you are worrying about. While true, you don’t have to worry too much about wasting gas as it gets 19 MPG in the city and 27 on the highway. If you use cruise control and avoid sudden accelerations, you can get nearly 30 MPG on the freeway, which is great for this size SUV.

Cars, trucks and SUVs are safer than they have ever been, and Acura is on the forefront of many new safety features. If you want to drive down the road with your family and not worry, you are in luck with the MDX. The three row SUV earned the highest, and highly coveted, five-star overall rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. With AcuraWatch™ technology, drivers can stay on top of things and respond to any situation quickly.

There are plenty of underpowered SUVs that leave drivers wanting more, but you don’t have to worry as the MDX won’t have any of that. With a 290 horsepower, 3.5 liter V-6 engine, you aren’t going to feel like you are driving an underpowered and boring SUV. This doesn’t mean that you can fly down the road like you had a sports car, but with a 0-60 time of under seven seconds, you can get around with ease. But, it’s one thing to read about power, and it’s another thing to feel it. For this reason, head down to Chapman Acura to test drive one.

While you may like good gas mileage and lots of power, if you aren’t comfortable in your vehicle, it’s hard to enjoy it. Again, the Acura MDX has you covered. With three rows of luxury seats, you can fit up to eight people, comfortably. Adults over six-feet tall may want to stick to the front seats or the first two rows, but it’s more comfortable than most larger cars and SUVs, and it’s a big reason why anyone who loves taking the family on a road trip should consider the MDX.

There are a lot of choices out there for SUVs, and if you want a crossover, you know the market is crowded. But, if you want reliability and cutting-edge tech, the Acura MDX is a solid choice. For three decades now, Acura has made affordable and reliable cars and SUVs, and they have only improved. If you are looking for something that you can rely on for years to come, you won’t regret getting an Acura MDX.

With many options in the crossover market, you may not be able to research everything. But, luckily, the Acura MDX offers it all – luxury, style, power and reliability, all at a decent price. If you are considering a crossover, take a long and hard look at the Acura MDX.

Acura TLX


The Acura TLX is making its mark in the luxury automobile market. It has made luxury sedans affordable for many more people and is helping to burnish Acura’s reputation as a premier automobile manufacturer. The TLX is a roomy, quiet, luxury sedan with lots of excellent features. The 2017 Acura TLX sedan is equipped with a V6 engine, all-wheel drive, generous rear seat legroom and adequate trunk space. Plus it has ample in-cabin storage. All of that yet it’s priced less than the German luxury automobiles with which it competes. The Acura TLX is shaking up the luxury automobile market.

Like many other luxury automobiles, the Acura TLX is loaded with technology. In fact, when it comes to entry-level luxury cars, it’s among the best equipped. Add its superior interior features, great fuel economy and its comfortable interior and it’s easy to understand why this car is changing the luxury car segment. When you look under the hood, you will really be impressed. Other cars may have a V6 ZF-sourced 9-speed automatic transmission, but the TLX does it better. Whether you get one with the 201 horsepower 2.4 liter 4 cylinder or the 290 horsepower V6 3.5 liter direct injection engine, it’s paired with a torque converter that makes shifting gears so smooth it’s almost imperceptible. It’s another level of luxury. To see how smooth the TLX is, check one out for yourself at Chapman Acura.

The TLX is primarily a front-wheel drive machine that utilizes Acura’s unique P-AWS electric rear steering system to create breathtaking agility, stability and handling even under braking. The V6 Acura TLX offers a SH-AWD all-wheel-drive option combined with a smaller differential that’s more efficient and can deliver as much as 885 pounds per foot of torque vectoring through the rear axle. It’s an astonishingly good system. One that puts power to the road and provides assistance with cornering. Few if any automobiles, luxury or not, have a better all-wheel drive system.

The quality of the ride people experience when they slide inside the Acura TLX is another way it’s transforming the luxury car market. The reason for this is the car’s superb strut-type suspension, which provides perfectly controlled body motions and an extraordinarily comfortable experience for both driver and passenger on even the roughest roads. The bumps are well-damped, and with its active noise cancellation technology and the body’s expanding-foam insulation, wind and road noise are hushed. The ride is so smooth it gives the TLX the feel of a much more expensive luxury automobile. So in essence this affordable Acura gives you more luxury for less money.

An amazingly quiet cabin, comfortable seating for five adults, an elegant yet understated interior, a fantastic sounding entertainment system, Bluetooth, navigation and all the latest communication and connectivity technology combined with industry-leading safety features all add up to make the Acura TLX a very attractive choice for people looking for a quality luxury automobile the average person can afford. Acura has made yet another great car. One that dramatically changes the luxury car segment of the automotive marketplace.
