This functional, family-friendly luxury SUV is comfortable, quick, and quiet, with 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 engine is silky smooth and delivers quick acceleration.
We measured a very commendable 21 mpg overall, but the nine-speed automatic transmission is not always smooth or responsive, and its push-button gear selector takes some getting used to.
We also found it frustrating to use the dual-screen control interface.
The MDX has a comfortable ride, and the cabin is quiet.
Handling is mundane, but it's ultimately secure.
A hybrid version is also available.
Standard safety features include forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and lane departure warning.
