For years, the upscale MDX has been a popular choice among Consumer Reports readers and one of our higher-rated SUVs. Thankfully, the redesigned, third-generation model continues that tradition. Overall, it's a well-rounded SUV that does most things well. The hushed cabin and supple ride are a step up over the previous version. The 3.5-liter V6 engine is quick, responsive and refined.

Acura MDX Road Test

For years, the upscale MDX has been a popular choice among Consumer Reports readers and one of our higher-rated SUVs. Thankfully, the redesigned, third-generation model continues that tradition. Overall, it's a well-rounded SUV that does most things well.

The hushed cabin and supple ride are a step up over the previous version. The 3.5-liter V6 engine is quick, responsive and refined. And it delivers an impressive 20 mpg overall.

The MDX has a roomy, comfortable and very functional cabin that can hold up to seven people. Access to the third-row seat requires pressing a single button -- a clever, user-friendly design that should be a benchmark for competitive models.
