I will happily keep my little known Acura MDX Hybrid with SHAWD. It has a smaller 3.0 V6 and 7 speed dual clutch ( not CVT) transmission. it also has 3 Electric motors-similar to the NSX and 320 HP. It flows seamlessly from Electric to gas-only noticeable by watching the Tach drop to zero. Absolutely wonderful ride and handling with room for 6. Can't match the 4 cylinder here for MPG as we get 22-24 in town and 24-25 on the highway. But I'll keep our driving dynamics over that of the Highlander.
