The device, known in the automotive industry as an event data recorder, is what authorities could tap as they investigate the nature of Tiger Woods’ horrifying crash Tuesday.

Woods was driving a Genesis GV80 luxury SUV when he careened off the road in a rollover accident that resulted in serious leg injuries for the golf legend.

A True Luxury Three-Row SUV?

Acura MDX Full Overview

First and foremost, know that the redesigned 2022 Acura MDX’s interior is a big improvement from the outgoing model. That SUV’s nice-for-a-Honda aesthetic and dual-screen infotainment setup were decidedly 2014. Not so for the new MDX, which takes on a distinctive, modern ambiance with more technology than any Acura before.
