This functional, family-friendly, and competitively priced luxury SUV is comfortable, quick, and quiet, with generous space for seven. The second row folds and slides forward with the touch of a button for easy access to the small third row. The 3.5-liter V6 is silky smooth and delivers more than adequate acceleration. We measured a very commendable 21 mpg overall with the nine-speed automatic. Front-drive versions should have better fuel economy. Unfortunately this transmission is not always smooth or responsive, and the push-button shifter is unintuitive to use. The dual-screen control interface is frustrating to use. The 2017 freshening brings a hybrid version with a seven-speed automatic, as well as standard AcuraWatch, which includes safety systems such as lane-departure warning and forward-collision avoidance
