The 2002 Acura MDX luxury SUV is priced at $34,700 at Acura dealers nationwide. The MDX is available with only two factory options: a luxury Touring Package priced at $2,600 and the Acura Satellite-Linked Navigation System priced at $2,000. MDX prices represent a $330 increase compared to last year or a 0.9 percent increase based on a sales-weighted average.

Acura's MDX sport utility vehicle features a 3.5-liter, 240-horsepower V-6, a 5-speed automatic transmission, the innovative variable Torque Management 4-wheel drive (VTM-4) system and three rows of seats. The 2002 model receives a variety of subtle enhancements including redesigned "diffuser" side mirrors and thicker windshield glass, both of which help to reduce wind noise; an intermittent rear windshield wiper; and the Lower Anchors and Tethers for children (LATCH) child seat restraint system.

Since its introduction in October of last year, more than 30,000 MDX's have been sold, helping Acura set a 2001 model-year sales record of 165,983 units.
