"The experts and our customers seem to agree – the team of American engineers who developed our all-new 2014 Acura MDX completely knocked it out of the park.

Engineered to be the quietest and quickest MDX ever, this all-new luxury SUV also was designed to excel in the area of safety. So, we were pleased to learn this week that MDX earned the top 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score in the NHTSA's New Car Assessment Program (NCAP). And this comes just a month after the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) recognized the 2014 MDX for its rich array of leading safety and driver assistive technologies including Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) and Forward Collision Warning (FCW).

We appreciate this recognition of our engineers' great work, but the ultimate recognition comes from the customer and MDX enjoyed the all-time record sales result in October – which is the second all-time best month since our manufacturing associates in our plant in Alabama began ramping up production. For MDX and for Acura, the momentum just seems to grow stronger with each passing month."
