From legends like the TL and RSX Type S models, Precision Crafted Performance has always been our pursuit. Fueled by that heritage, the Type S returns in its most powerful incarnation, ready to conquer new roads. And now, the MDX makes history as the first Acura SUV with a Type S performance variant.
The MDX Type S raises the bar for performance. Hold nothing back when you hit the road with a 355-HP126 3.0L turbo V-6 and rear-biased Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®). Activate Sport+ mode for an even more electrifying, visceral driving experience.
The SUV that’s designed to thrill. 21-inch alloy wheels wrapped in wide-performance tires transfer power to the road at all four corners, while red Brembo® 4-piston front calipers and upsized rotors deliver confidence-inspiring braking.
