Standard on this new MDX is the AcuraWatch package that includes pre-collision braking, lane-keeping assist and adaptive cruise control. All of these features cost an extra $1,500 on the current MDX. A brand new MDX costs around
$43,015 so the next generation should carry over with the same price, although buyers of the hybrid MDX will possibly have to shoulder an extra $5,500. For the added fuel economy, horsepower, all-wheel drive ability, and the right to claim ownership of NSX technology, the extra cash is a worthwhile investment. Hopefully this will help MDX sales when it hits dealerships in late 2016 because the crossover makes up a third of the brand’s annual sales.
