First introduced to the flooded SUV market in 2000, the
Acura MDX Sport Utility has successfully carved out its
own niche, seamlessly combining outstanding performance
with high standards of luxury and convenience. It drives
like a sedan, but offers the build and versatility of a
rugged sport utility.
This year, just one outstanding Acura MDX Sport Utility
model is available and comes with several different packages
so that you may upgrade your vehicle to suit your family,
work, and lifestyle requirements.
2002 Acura MDX SUV comes packed with luxuries like a seven-speaker
AM/FM cassette stereo with in-dash CD player, and a synchronized
automatic climate control system. There are three rows of
seats to accommodate up to seven passengers comfortably,
with 14.8 cubic feet of cargo space when all seats are in
use. The second and third row seats split and fold flat
into the floor to add up to 82 cubic feet of additional
cargo space when you need it.
The optional MDX Touring Package adds eight-way power adjustable
driver's and passenger's seats with memory, and a premium
eight-speaker Bose audio system with six-disc in-dash CD
The 2002 Acura MDX sports a tough yet sophisticated exterior
design highlighted by a signature Acura grille, large bright
headlights, chiseled front fascia, and a wide stance for
increased stability. The Touring Package includes a roof
rack, dual power outside mirrors with memory feature, and
Michelin Cross Terrain tires and exclusive alloy wheels.
Under the hood of the Acura MDX Sport Utility roars a formidable
3.5-litre, SOHC, 24-valve, all-aluminum engine that produces
an impressive 240 horsepower and 245 lb-ft of torque. The
standard transmission is a responsive electronically-controlled
five-speed automatic, and the fuel consumption rating checks
in at 17/23 mpg (city/hwy).
For additional power and versatility when faced with challenging
terrain and weather conditions, the MDX SUV packs an innovative
VTM four-wheel drive that allocates torque from the front
to the rear wheels to prevent slippage from occurring. Power
steering and a four-wheel fully independent suspension,
plus four-wheel disc brakes with ABS lend to precision handling
and full control.
Safety and Security
The 2002 Acura MDX Sport Utility Vehicle is equipped with
standard safety features that include basics like a driver
depowered air bag, passenger depowered air bag, front passenger
side impact air bags, head restraints, and three-point seatbelts.
Each vehicle also lists child safety locks in the rear seating
area, and child seat tethers and anchors in the second seating
row. Other standard fare includes side impact door beams,
and crumple zones to channel the energy of an impact away
from the cabin.
