The 2017 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid may look like a staid SUV, but it has a few tricks under the sheet metal.

The Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system makes the Acura a blast to drive in the turns.

Under the hood a 3.0-liter V6 puts the power to the front wheels, while there are two electric motors powering the rear. A third motor is integrated into the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and is connected to the front driveshaft via gears.

All told, the system puts out a respectable 321 horsepower and 289 pound-feet of torque

Super Handling All-Wheel Drive throws positive torque to the outside rear wheel while cornering, essentially helping the car to rotate in a more controlled manner.

The hybrid system, however, can work independently of the gas engine, resulting in torque-vectoring that is always on. Additionally, the SH-AWD in the hybrid can also apply regenerative brake torque to the inside rear wheel, resulting in crisp turn in.
