Everything you need to know about the Acura MDX Sport Hybrid

Published on July 31 2018

Did you know that the Acura MDX, Acura's premium mid-size luxury SUV that offers space for 7 passengers, is available in a hybrid version? Many people do not know it, but it is indeed the case. The Acura MDX Sport Hybrid is indeed one of the few SUVs in its segment to offer a hybrid engine, and it is even rarer to find a luxury SUV that offers this engine with three rows of seats.

A high-performance, fuel-efficient engine

With the hybrid engine of the Acura MDX Sport Hybrid, we get a lot of power that does not come at the expense of fuel economy. Indeed, the hybrid engine of the Sport Hybrid version combines a 3.0-liter V6 with 257 horsepower to an electric motor making 35 kW (47 horsepower).

There is also a third electric motor, with 36 ​​horsepower, which also assists the driver at different times.

We are therefore entitled to more than 300 horsepower (321 horses to be exact) under our right foot, more than the entry-level MDX which offers 290 horsepower. That being said, what really impresses with this engine is not its power although it is certainly welcome, but rather the average fuel consumption rating of only 9.0 liters per 100 kilometers.

For a mid-size luxury SUV, this is pretty impressive.

All this is made possible by a lithium-ion battery that charges the electric motors and by the fact that they can help the gasoline engine when needed, or when trying to save fuel.

The end result is a luxury SUV that behaves very softly and is really comfortable on the road, but is also very fuel efficient.
