2016 Acura MDX Advance Package Driving Impressions
The Acura MDX is a V6 engine with a soft grunt beautiful sound when you plant your right foot. Transmissions nine reports tend to produce odd low speed trends and selections of inappropriate speeds, but that is not the case with this new-for-2016 automatic transmission. It’s smooth, intelligent and has improved acceleration and fuel economy, although its automatic stop-start system included in the package Advance can send shivers through the coarse car when he was arrested. We are not in love with the adaptive cruise control option, which is too quick to slam on the brakes too slow to accelerate again and generally poor to maintain the set speed.
We know that the Acura MDX rides a bit firmer than some competing crossovers on the highway and around town, but most homeowners probably will not find unpleasant. Overall, levels of wind noise and road are quite low, an area in which the MDX has improved significantly in recent years. If you decide to shake up this three-row luxury crossover along a winding road, you’ll be rewarded with responsive steering and composed handling. The all-wheel drive version is particularly adept at power-output curves.
