After returning to production lines last year, the Acura MDX is back once again in 2023 to fulfill all the needs of a modern family. Come and find out why it’s one of the bestsellers in its category.

At your Acura dealership, you’ll find information about the MDX’s engines, a look at the interior, a few of the awards it has won and a list of starting prices at which it is available in Canada.

A Quick Look at the Acura MDX’s Specs

Among the 6 versions available on the Canadian market, the 2023 MDX is outfitted with two different engines. Indeed, the Acura MDX Type S and S Ultra come with a powertrain different from the other four versions: MDX, Tech, A-Spec and Platinum Elite.

Let’s briefly compare both engines:

2023 Acura MDX 

3.5 L, direct injection, i-VTEC, V6 (MDX, Tech, A-spec, Platinum)

3 L, direct injection, DOHC i-VTEC, V6 (Type S and S Ultra)


290 hp @ 6200 rpm

355 hp @ 5500 rpm


267 lb-ft @ 4700 rpm

354 lb-ft @ 1400–5000 rpm


The type S engine provides higher power and torque with a combined fuel economy of 12.4 L/100 km, compared to the 11.2 L/100 km of the other available powertrain. The lower trims use about 10% less fuel than the two Type S. No matter the version, the Acura MDX has a 10-speed automatic transmission.

A Look at the Acura MDX’s Interior

Interior of 2023 Acura MDX

With its 7 seats and its numerous available accessories, this Acura SUV is ready to welcome any family with a desire for adventure.

Depending on the trim, the 2023 MDX by Acura provides a few different comforts. However, each version offered has a few components that stay the same, including:

  • A heated steering wheel
  • Heated front seats
  • A sunroof
  • A 12.3 inches high-definition main display with touchpad, etc.

In each version, except the base MDX, the second-row seats are also heated.

Additionally, the A-Spec version and both Type S come with a flat bottom steering wheel instead of the traditional steering wheel of the MDX, Tech and Platinum Elite.

Finally, for those who want to stand out, the Type S Ultra comes with a few exclusive elements, like:

  • Front massage seats
  • Plush floor mats
  • Quilted leather trimmed seating for the first two rows of seats, etc.

Here’s a few of the reasons why this trim has been granted the Ultra title.

We couldn’t talk about an Acura SUV without talking about its cargo capacity. The 2023 MDX’s trunk provides a cargo volume of 513 L, which can be upgraded to 2,690 L by lowering the backseats. We doubt you’ll be looking for additional space!

An SUV That Stands Out

The 2023 Acura MDX isn’t just any old SUV. Indeed, it was named the 2023 Best Intermediate Luxury SUV by The Car Guide.

Additionally, in terms of safety, the 2022 model was awarded the TOP SAFETY PICK+ grade by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The 2023 model keeps all the features that made the 2022 model worthy of this grade.
