In reviews of the Acura MDX, we have found it to be a polished performer, as it can go still one of the most enjoyable luxury crossover. The steering is lighter and has a feel less connected to the mid-size luxury SUV than before. But a “sport” mode changes this and provides significantly better feel and response. The ride is commendable and quieter at higher speeds and more forgiving over broken pavement, than before.
As expected, the cabin is inviting. The Acura MDX second row seat slides forward with the push of a button, to facilitate access to the third row, which are more spacious than in previous generations, but still most ideal for children. On the dashboard, there is an easy-to-use 7-inch touch-screen interface and an even bigger screen above for comprehensive infotainment system of the Acura MDX is. With 15.8 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row, the MDX trails the competition when all three rows are in use. However, its maximum cargo capacity of 90.9 cubic feet is impressive.
The second generation of Acura MDX debuted in 2007 and ran until 2013. In addition to an update for the year 2010, the changes were minimal. The update brought revised styling , a six-speed transmission, a hard drive-based navigation system and a multi-angle rearview camera.
Standard amenities were generous and highlights were leather seats, a sunroof, a power lift-gate, satellite radio, a rearview camera and Bluetooth phone connectivity.
