2012 Acura Mdx Review

Equipped with its standard V6 engine, test drivers said the 2012 Acura MDX is a bit sluggish from a stop, but offers plenty of power once it’s up to speed. They also praised the standard six-speed automatic transmission for its smooth, well-timed shifts. The 2012 MDX gets an EPA-estimated 16/21 mpg city/highway, which is a bit low for the class. Reviewers said the MDX’s athletic cornering and crisp steering make it one of the most fun-to-drive SUVs in the class. Most test drivers agreed that the MDX has a ride that’s firm, yet generally comfortable, though a few thought that models with the available adjustable suspension can be somewhat harsh in sport mode. Reviewers said that 2012 Acura MDX’s cabin features premium materials and a modern, attractive design. The MDX seats up to seven in three rows and while auto writers said the first and second rows have plenty of leg- and headroom, the last row will likely be tight for adults, which is a common complaint in this class. The MDX has up to 83.5 cubic feet of cargo space, which is competitive among three-row luxury midsize SUVs. The 2012 MDX comes standard with Bluetooth, tri-zone automatic climate control, a power liftgate, leather seats, a moonroof, a rearview camera, an eight-speaker sound system, satellite radio and an auxiliary input. Available features include voice-controlled navigation, ventilated front seats, an upgraded audio system, a USB port and a rear-seat entertainment system. Collision mitigation braking, adaptive cruise control and blind spot monitoring are also available. Most automotive journalists said that the audio, climate and navigation controls are easy to use, though a few thought the sheer number of buttons on the center stack can feel overwhelming. Other SUVs to Consider Reviewers were impressed with the 2012 Lexus RX 350’s comfortable seats and said it has a composed ride. The five-seat RX 350 also gets better fuel economy than the MDX, even when equipped with all-wheel drive. When it was new, test drivers said the 2012 Porsche Cayenne is one of the best-performing SUVs available. With sporty handling and powerful engine choices, they said the Cayenne is incredibly fun to drive. Like the MDX, it comes standard with all-wheel drive. Compare the MDX, RX 350 and Cayenne »

2012 Acura Mdx Review

2012 Acura MDX Details Interior Though clearly focused on delivering exceptional performance, the 2012 Acura MDX does not compromise on practicality. A full 15 cubic feet of cargo capacity is available behind the third-row seats (only two cubic-feet less than the full-size Chevrolet Tahoe). Both rear rows fold flat to accommodate larger loads. The reclining second-row seats offer plenty of legroom, even for 6-footers. The third row, of course, is best for smaller folks and shorter trips. The MDX even offers a minivan-like 10 cupholders. Up front, the 2012 MDX is an attractive mix of sport, luxury and technology, with highlights that include perforated leather or premium Milano leather seats, simulated Koa wood or metallic trim and a collection of intuitive controls and LED lighting. Exterior Good proportions, clean lines, pronounced wheel arches and an aggressive stance give the 2012 Acura MDX a strong presence on the road. Details such as high-intensity discharge (HID) headlights, turn signals integrated into the outside mirrors and LED taillights add to the high-tech flavor of the MDX. Opinion may split on the chrome “beak” grille treatment that is a corporate-Acura trademark, but at least it’s recognizable. The 2012 Acura MDX is somewhat larger overall than the Lexus RX 350 and Volvo XC90.

2012 Acura Mdx Review

From its debut in 2001 right through to the current 2012 model, the Acura MDX SUV has continued to be one of our favorite SUVs. And we are not alone. In addition to critical acclaim, the MDX has always been well regarded by consumers, as measured by its consistently strong sales position in the segment (second only to the Lexus RX 350). Balance is the MDX’s strong suit. It manages to combine good useful space and room for seven with reasonable overall size, and it is responsive and easy handling while still being comfortable and accommodating. Back in model year 2010, the MDX was significantly upgraded with a new powertrain and fresh exterior styling, and the 2012 Acura MDX remains in essentially that same form.

Under the Hood The V6 in the 2012 Acura MDX holds the distinction of being the most powerful engine Acura has ever offered. It works through a 6-speed automatic transmission and the clever Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system that manages the torque split not only between front and rear 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 @ 6,300 rpm 270 lb-ft of torque @ 4,500 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.

2012 Acura Mdx Review

Currently in its second generation, the 2012 MDX received a face-lift and a powertrain upgrade in 2010, resulting in all around improved performance. Equipped with a more powerful 3.7-liter V-6 engine that puts out 300-hp and 270 lb-ft of torque, the second-gen MDX is also equipped with Acura’s signature Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive system (SH-AWD), allowing it to be much more versatile than a typical front- drive family hauler. Its high-tech interior is also an MDX (and Acura) staple.

2012 Acura Mdx Review

Acura is working on a replacement for its best-selling model, the MDX crossover, and our spy shooters got a look at the new model under heavy dose of camouflage. The current MDX was introduced in 2006 and subsequently face-lifted for the 2010 model year.The basic formula for the new Acura MDX will remain the same. It looks like the luxury…

This is the 3rd MDX we’ve owned and the 2012 is, by far, the best yet. The biggest improvement is the 6 speed transmission which was my biggest dislike from our 2009 MDX. While the exterior has only changed slightly, the interior refinements are really nice like the LED interior lighting, hard drive for your personal music and other light things. While the MDX Tech / Entertainment package we have isn’t cheap, we know what we’re getting. In the 10 years we’ve owned the MDX’s, we’ve never had a single mechanical or electrical issue. Can’t ask for anything more!
