MDX Technology for Safer Towing

Standard on all MDX trims is the Vehicle Stability Assist™️ (VSA) with Traction Control and Motion Adaptive Steering system. This system helps keep you in control by monitoring data on your model’s:

  • Vehicle speed
  • Throttle position
  • Steering angle
  • Vehicle yaw rate
  • Lateral G-force
  • Individual wheel speeds

With this information, the system can detect oversteering then reduce engine torque and apply the brakes to the individual wheels that need it in order to regain and maintain stabilization.
