Torrance, Calif. 09/30/2002 -- Acura today announced prices for its more powerful 2003 MDX luxury SUV, which features significant added equipment and refinements that increase the vehicle's price 2.8 percent compared to last year based on a sales-weighted average. The 2003 MDX will be priced at $35,700 when it goes on sale Sept. 30 at Acura dealers nationwide. The MDX comes with three available factory options: a luxury Touring Package priced at $2,600, and also available on models equipped with the Touring Package, a newly enhanced Acura Navigation System with Voice Recognition' and rearview camera priced at $2,200 and the all-new Acura DVD Entertainment System priced at $1,500.

A retuned suspension system increases ride comfort while an increase in dynamic torsional chassis rigidity, revised steering and the addition of Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) help to maintain the MDX's sport sedan-like handling.

Other new features for 2003 include redesigned alloy wheels, the addition of automatic on/off headlights and three new exterior colors.
