Acura MDX Overview

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 an excellent 21-mpg overall with the new nine-speed gearbox in the 2016 MDX. The FWD version should have better fuel economy. Most trims include safety systems such as lane-keeping assist and forward-collision avoidance. The dual-screen control interface is frustrating to use.
