Acura MDX Overview

Redesigned for 2014, the Acura MDX is an easy SUV to live with. It's comfortable, quick, and quieter than its predecessors, though it lost some of its sportiness. It offers generous space for seven, as long as the third-row occupants aren't too big. The clever new button for folding the second-row forward is simple and ought to be an industry standard. However, the new touchscreen has made many controls more complicated. The 3.5-liter V6 and six-speed transmission are smooth and silky and provide competitive acceleration. We measured an excellent 20 mpg overall. A lane-keeping assist and forward-collision avoidance systems are new. A new front-wheel drive version brings even better fuel economy and a lower price.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
