2010 Acura Mdx Review

The seven-seat 2010 Acura MDX is a family crossover with very good performance. Test drivers said its updates for the 2010 model year added even more luxury and technology, giving it a particularly luxurious interior. Base trims come with a lot of standard features, including an eight-speaker stereo system with speed-sensitive volume control, tri-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery and heated, eight-way power-adjustable front seats. Most reviewers said the MDX is one of the most fun-to-drive SUVs in the class. Add that to its great safety ratings, and there’s a lot to like about the 2010 Acura MDX. However, the MDX does have a few downsides. Other crossovers have slightly better fuel economy, and some test drivers said its grille looks like a beak or a can opener. The MDX’s firm, sport-tuned suspension means that its ride may be too harsh for some drivers. If you want an upscale crossover with more luxury brand prestige, off-road capacity or better gas mileage, you may want to consider some of the MDX’s competitors. But for a great all-around SUV that doesn’t sacrifice fun driving dynamics, it doesn’t get much better than the 2010 Acura MDX. See the full list of 2010 Acura MDX specs » Other Cars to Consider If you’re shopping for a three-row luxury crossover, you should make sure that the 2010 Lincoln MKT is on your list. Test drivers said its third-row seats were fairly roomy, and they praised its powerful engine and smooth, composed handling. Shoppers who need a bit more capability from their luxury SUV and can afford a likely-higher price tag should consider the 2010 Lexus GX. It’s based on the 2010 Toyota 4Runner and carries on the 4Runner’s dependable off-road performance and hefty towing capacity, while offering an interior that’s worthy of the Lexus badge.

2010 Acura MDX Details Interior In its pursuit of greater performance, the 2010 Acura MDX has given up nothing in practicality. For example, the MDX offers 15 cubic feet of cargo capacity behind the third row, which is just two cubic feet less than the full-size Chevrolet Tahoe. For bigger loads, both rear rows fold flat. The reclining second-row seats offer enough legroom for those six feet tall and more, while the third row is best suited for smaller folks riding on shorter trips. The MDX even offers a minivan-like 10 cupholders. Up front, the MDX is an attractive mix of sport, luxury and technology, with highlights that include perforated leather or premium Milano leather seats, wood-like or metallic trim and a collection of intuitive controls and LED lighting. Exterior Complementing its wider, lower, more aggressive stance, the boldly styled MDX features a shield-like take on Acura’s five-sided grille, thick wheel arches filled with 18-inch wheels and prominent oval tailpipes. High-intensity discharge (HID) headlamps, mirror-integrated turn signals and LED taillamps further the cutting-edge appearance, as does a radio antenna that’s been cleverly integrated into the rear spoiler. The MDX is longer, wider and taller, by varying degrees, than the Lexus RX 350 and Volvo XC90.

The heart of the 2010 MDX’s performance package is a 300-hp, 3.7-liter V-6 coupled to a new six-speed automatic with paddle shifters. With strong acceleration for passing, the MDX is among the most capable vehicles in its class, including the Volvo XC90 and Buick Enclave. Tech features like variable valve timing and electronic throttle help it gain in fuel economy–it’s up to 16/21 mpg, higher than in 2009–and still tows 5,000 pounds while snapping off quick gearchanges and stepping smartly away from stoplights. Retuned steering feels too light and darty, but the MDX’s long wheelbase and substantial mass smooth out most bumps. Special versions add electronically adjustable shocks for slightly more responsive feel and 19-inch wheels. The MDX’s standard all-wheel-drive setup can shift power to any wheel with more traction–even around a tight corner–which neatly factors out the four-wheel sluggishness that usually accompanies AWD systems. As a result, the MDX has a sprightly feel that’s absent from other big crossovers. The powertrain is responsive, the suspension tuned well to prevent too much lean, and the ride supple. In all, the MDX behaves like a lighter, smaller vehicle.

The Good With an advanced all-wheel-drive system and active suspension, the 2010 Acura MDX handles like a sports car. Voice command for iPods, blind-spot warning, adaptive cruise control, and an excellent audio system round out the cabin tech. The Bad The navigation system’s maps are the same old chunky things we’ve seen for years from Acura, and the engine is a throwback to the previous generation as well. The Bottom Line With bumped-up luxury appointments in the cabin, an advanced cabin tech suite, and unexpectedly good handling, the 2010 Acura MDX provides driving satisfaction for leisurely cruises and mountain romps.

Under the Hood The MDX features Acura’s most powerful engine ever, connected to a new six-speed automatic transmission and the Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system that distributes torque not only between the front and rear wheels, but also between the left and right rear wheels. In addition to cornering advantages, the system also makes for a less-intrusive stability control system. The available Active Damper System, in which the shock absorbers can change from soft to firm in milliseconds, helps mitigate the traditional trade-offs between a comfortable ride and spirited handling. The MDX features unibody construction and a fully independent suspension, and can tow up to 5,000 pounds with the added benefit of a Trailer Stability Assist feature. 3.7-liter V6 300 horsepower @ 6300 rpm 270 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4500 rpm EPA city/highway fuel economy: 16/21 To compare current market prices, check out KBB.com’s car classifieds to view the new and used Acura MDX vehicles for sale near you.

By combining manageable dimensions with seven-passenger capacity, a comfortable highway ride with responsive in-town handling and car-like construction with respectable off-pavement capability, the MDX has been one of our favorite SUVs since its introduction for the 2001 model year. In fact, as it trails only the Lexus RX 350 in category sales, the MDX has proven to be a favorite of many. For 2010, Acura has made a number of improvements with new emphases on performance, technology and styling. Fortunately, the characteristics that made the original MDX appealing are still present in the current model.

At first glance, the 2010 Acura MDX looks familiar to anyone who owns the 2009 model. There are minor updates to its subdued good looks–namely, a big, new Acura corporate grille that’s shield-like and reminds some reviewers of a bottle opener. It’s aggressive to the eye and out of character for a refined performer like the MDX. Thankfully, the rest of its lines stay clean and neat, with a gentle downward arc and new taillamps in back slimming it somewhat. The cabin’s a well-executed comfort zone. New brown stain on the wood trim cascades from the midline of the dash, and more Milano leather is stitched into place on the seats and panels. The gauges are redesigned for better clarity, too. In all, it’s a modern, well-tailored workplace.

Further assisting quick maneuvering was the MDX’s blind-spot detection, which lit up an icon at the base of the A-pillar when it detected a car in the lane next to us. Given the high sides of the MDX, cars in the next lane were often completely invisible. Blind-spot detection is one of our favorite safety features, and it is nice to see Acura employing it in the MDX.
