The dynamic styling of the 2013 MDX is highlighted by Acura's signature front grille, a bold front fascia, a rear fascia with integrated polished stainless-steel exhaust finishers, sleek taillights with bright LEDs, and 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels. Attention to detail and three rows of seating (for up to seven passengers) define the well-appointed and spacious interior of the MDX. Upscale leather stitching, a thick sport-style steering wheel grip, LED interior lighting, tri-zone climate control, a 253-watt Acura Premium Sound System with 8-speakers and Bluetooth HandsFreeLink are all part of the MDX's long list of standard luxury features.
The optional Technology Package adds Milano premium leather inside the cabin, as well as features such as the Acura Navigation System with Voice Recognition, an 8-inch VGA color display, a multi-view rear camera and a 410-watt Acura/ELS Surround Premium audio system with 10-speakers. The Advance Package augments the Technology Package with features such as the Active Damper System, 19-inch 7-spoke aluminum wheels, and ventilated front seats with perforated Milano premium full-grain leather.
The Galant Ralliart remains the top model in this midsize sedan range, powered by a 258-hp 3.8-liter V-6 engine and equipped with a five-speed Sportronic automatic transmission, sport suspension, 18-inch alloy wheels and exclusive exterior styling and interior features. The Galant Ralliart comes fully equipped, offering just one factory option, a DVD navigation system with seven-inch touch screen.
The Galant Ralliart features its own sport-tuned suspension with higher-rate springs and dampers and a 21-mm rear stabilizer bar. The Ralliart's 235/45R-18 all-season tires are mounted to 18 x 8-inch seven-spoke aluminum alloy wheels. All Galant models are equipped with four-wheel disc brakes, with the Ralliart model featuring larger front and rear discs than the other models.
Robust Platform for Sporty DrivingThe Galant's rigid body structure sets the stage for responsive handling and an engaging driving experience, balanced by a smooth, quiet ride. The proven MacPherson strut design front suspension attaches to a sub-frame with a large, rigid cross member. The low-mounted, multi-link rear suspension features stiff hydro-formed cross members that minimize flex and help reduce road noise. The Galant DE and ES models ride on standard 16-inch wheels with 215/60R16 tires.
The optional Sport Package infuses the Galant ES with extra style and function. Outside, the package equips this model with 16-inch 10-spoke alloy wheels, dark bezel halogen headlamps, crystal covered ellipsoid rear lamps, color-keyed side mirrors and a rear spoiler. Inside, the Sport Package installs the powerful Rockford Acoustic Design premium audio system, along with a Sport-touch steering wheel and an illuminated ignition key cylinder and glove box. Underscoring the outstanding value of this option (MSRP $1,000), the ES Sport Package also adds an anti-theft alarm system and SIRIUS Satellite Radio package with a 6-month pre-paid subscription. 59ce067264
