Consumers can put their concerns at ease since the automaker's luxury SUV, the 2014 Acura MDX, includes a multitude of safety technologies. Acura of Tampa especially notes the various safety features and technologies for the MDX, such as the forward collision warning, lane departure warning, collision, a mitigation brake system, expanded view driver's mirror and multi-view rear camera, among other available systems.

With all of these technologies, it's no wonder the 2014 Acura MDX scored big with the TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the IIHS, and the highest rating for the new small overlap front crash test. From the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the Acura MDX received a five-star for the Overall Vehicle Score. (1)

The automaker's big SUV is powered by a 3.5-liter V-6 engine, generating 290-horsepower. Mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission, paddle shifters are available on the steering wheel for consumers looking for that additional fun factor. (2) New models can be found at dealerships in Tampa. (3)
