Acura Shows off New MDX Interior Ahead of Reveal

The Acura MDX Prototype shows off upscale interior changes

  • Plenty of buttons, digital dash, ultra-wide screen

  • 25-speaker available audio


With a new fourth-generation version of the Acura MDX coming next week, the brand has given us a look at the updated interior after already teasing the exterior shape last week.

Acura calls it “a new high-water mark” for the automaker’s interior design, offering luxury touches like new curvilinear quilting on the seats in all three rows as well as gradient perforation along with high-contrast stitches and piping. Though probably not quite as high contrast as it looks with the red and blue lighting of the video clip.

Other additions to the new MDX include an all-digital Acura Precision Cockpit as well as a high-res ultra-wide center display. A 25-speaker ELS Signature Adition audio system with premium lighting should give your ears a treat to match the visual touches.

Acura is still calling the vehicle the MDX prototype, and the full thing will be revealed on October 14th, but despite the name, this is pretty much what you’ll see from the production fourth-generation MDX when it goes on sale, likely early next year.

The crossover also features what looks like a decidedly fat but small-diameter steering wheel, still using Acura’s current scroll wheel system to control some of the vehicle’s main functions. It also has the latest Acura digital gear shift and a touchscreen that adds either a much more prominent wrist rest than before or some sort of large T-Handle lever. The former seems more likely, and there is a wireless charging port visible just to the rear of whatever that new part is.

We will confirm there is a real volume knob, though it’s beside the touchscreen and below the gear selector. That big red Acura logo button above the gear selectors is instead the Dynamic Mode selection switch. We can also see buttons for heated and ventilated seats as well as an automatic seat climate mode and what appears to be a massage function control.
