Acura’s 2025 refresh of the three-row MDX includes subtle exterior updates and more aggressive styling for the mid-level A-Spec trim. But the important change is inside, where the accursed True Touchpad Interface is gone, replaced by a less distracting touchscreen with standard wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The rest of the interior is also overhauled, with the new display nested in a redesigned dashboard and new seats, too.

Powertrain Specs and MPG

The base MDX is powered by a 3.5-liter V-6 engine making 290 horsepower and 267 pounds-feet of torque. A 10-speed automatic is the only transmission available. Front-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is available for an additional $2,200 (A-Spec variants employ standard AWD). The range-topping MDX Type S features a turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 good for 355 hp and 354 pounds-feet, again with standard AWD.

Official EPA fuel-economy figures are not yet available for the refreshed 2025 MDX but are unlikely to stray from the 2024 model’s ratings. Front-drive 2024 MDXs carried an EPA rating of 19/26/22 mpg city/highway/combined, while the AWD version was rated at 19/25/21 mpg. The turbo Type S returned 17/21/19 mpg.
