A 2016 form of Acura’s bestselling type may seem the same as last year’s, however there’s plenty happening of that ripped visage. For starters, the MDX crossover receives a latest ZF nine-speed automatic gear. Putting 3 more cogs generates a wider rate spread than in the last model’s six-speed, ostensibly assisting to maintain the MDX’s 290-hp 3.5-liter V-6 in the extra effective elements of it’s power plus torque bands. Not too last year’s 290-hp/six-speed combo is a laggard, however Acura, like all car manufacturers, is searching to boost the Environmental protection agency rates of their cars nevertheless it could. And apparently, Honda’s deluxe arm is more cozy offering a nine-speed than a continuously variable auto.
