Acura MDX Overview

The Acura MDX is a very functional, upscale SUV. 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 a commendable 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).
