2020 MDX Sport Hybrid

The 2020 MDX Sport Hybrid is engineered for customers who desire the ultimate in driving refinement, technological sophistication and prestige. Featuring Acura's signature three-motor Sport Hybrid Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive(TM) (SH-AWD(R)) system, the MDX Sport Hybrid is the brand's most powerful and efficient production vehicle.

The MDX Sport Hybrid's 3.0-liter, i-VTEC(TM) V6 engine and three-motor Sport Hybrid Super Handling-All Wheel Drive(TM) (SH-AWD(R)) system delivers decisive power and control as well as instant torque. While turning out 321 total system horsepower and 289 lb.-ft. of combined system torque, all MDX Sport Hybrids earn an impressive EPA combined fuel economy rating of 27 mpg2. An advanced 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (7DCT) - a feature closely related to the NSX supercar's 9-speed DCT - is offered as standard equipment. The MDX Sport Hybrid's electric SH-AWD(R) system operates independently of the gasoline engine, with the two rear-mounted electric motors dynamically apportioning torque directly to the left and right rear wheels.

Offered in a Technology and Advanced package, the Tech Package models include seating for seven, while the range-topping Advance Package incorporates a 6-passenger interior configuration with second-row captain's chairs and a large second-row center console in place of a three-occupant bench seat.
