The MDX’s best attributes have been left intact. The MDX is well regarded among buyers for its faultless build quality, impressive reliability record and strong resale values. We like it because it’s fun to drive: Acura’s sophisticated Super Handling All-Wheel-Drive (SH-AWD) system helps to make it one of the sportier luxury SUVs on the market, though the ride is a bit firmer than other luxury SUVs (but not firm enough to bother us). And from the perspective of practicality, the MDX is one of just a handful of midsize luxury SUVs that offer the convenience of a third-row seat. Unfortunately, the only elements we really don’t like — a nine-speed automatic transmission that often makes gear selections, an adaptive cruise control system that is a bit harsh on the brakes, and a subpar touchscreen stereo and navigation system — remain unchanged. We think the hybrid system will greatly add to the MDX’s appeal. The system is similar to the one found in Acura’s RLX Sport Hybrid, which employs a 3.0-liter V6 engine and three electric motors, one as part of the powertrain package and one turning each of the rear wheels. The hybrid also replaces the badly behaved nine-speed automatic with a better seven-speed unit. Total system output is 325 horsepower, 35 more than the standard 3.5-liter V6. The EPA fuel economy estimate for the hybrid is 26 mpg combined (25 city/26 highway) — compare that with 21 mpg combined (18 city/26 highway) for the conventionally powered all-wheel-drive MDX. Acura also offers a more fuel-efficient front-wheel-drive version, and both FWD and AWD non-hybrids can be had with an optional auto-start-stop feature (part of the Advance package) that bumps fuel economy by around 1 mpg. Acura offers the MDX in a single well-equipped model; there’s a Technology package that includes more electronic equipment and driver aids, and an Advance package that provides more creature comforts. Let Edmunds can help find the perfect 2017 Acura MDX for you.

2016 Acura MDX Details Interior The new Acura MDX interior carries over from last year, except for the new 9-speed automatic’s push-button shifter. Acura’s restrained luxury emphasizes comfort and ease-of-use, with luxuriant leather, soft-touch surfaces, and expensive-feeling buttons and switches. It’d be nice if the wood was real, and competitors like the Infiniti QX60 and Audi Q7 have a bit more artistry, but those are minor points. The uncluttered interface is thanks to a pair of LCD displays that perform most operations, and do it well once you get used to the setup. We particularly like how the easy-fold 2nd-row seat. Exterior Acura has abandoned weirdness and returned to its handsome roots, and we should all be thankful. The Jewel Eye headlights are the centerpiece of MDX SUV styling, and while the “power plenum” grille still exists, it’s nowhere near the gaudy shield that kicked off Acura’s in-the-woods styling of the late 2000s. Instead, we get classy, well-proportioned and clean lines that are a definite step forward from the last-generation model. It’s also less bulky, meaning that it’s easier to maneuver in tight parking places.

For families who need three rows of seats but want an upscale vehicle with sporty driving dynamics (for a 3-row SUV), the Acura MDX is a very good choice. Though other luxury midsize SUVs have more engine options, the MDX’s lone V6 makes plenty of power. A long list of standard features comes with the $43,950 base model, including advanced driver assistance systems that usually cost extra in most other cars. The Acura MDX is the 2017 Best Luxury 3-Row SUV for the Money because it has the best combination of quality and value in the class. Acura has also introduced a hybrid version of the MDX, which we review separately.

The Acura MDX dominates the luxury crossover SUV market for one simple reason: it does everything well. Whether you want a luxurious family hauler, an agile and fun driving machine, or just seek the quiet and comfort of a luxury brand, the Acura MDX has it. This year, the 2016 Acura MDX ups the ante on all of that with a new 9-speed automatic transmission to improve acceleration and fuel economy, a revised all-wheel-drive system to improve agility and safety, and a host of new technologies to help keep the MDX and its passengers safe and sound. It’s in a just-right-sized package that offers excellent reliability, giving SUVs like the Infiniti QX60 and Audi Q7 a run for their money.

The base Acura MDX may cost about $900 more than the Lexus RX 350, but it’s the better vehicle to choose. The two cars share similar technology and V6 engines, but the MDX is much more practical. The MDX can seat seven in three rows, while the Lexus is a smaller crossover that holds five in two rows. The MDX also has 90.9 cubic feet overall, compared with the RX 350’s 56.3 cubic feet. Granted, seven people and their luggage may not fit in the Acura, but at least you have the choice of carrying seven people or a lot of cargo. The RX 350 can’t do either.

Other than the new schnoz, not much else changes for the most popular Acura, and that’s a good thing. The MDX remains one of the most entertaining three-row luxury crossovers to drive, which might sound like saying that Kim is the most intellectually stimulating of the Kardashians. But Acura’s sophisticated Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system (SH-AWD), which incorporates a torque-vectoring rear differential, imbues the MDX with surprising athleticism. Push it into a corner hard and stand on the throttle, and the differential goes to work apportioning torque to the outside-rear wheel, quelling understeer and motoring you on your way with little drama. The MDX’s accurate steering rack and well-damped suspension also contribute to its dynamic poise. The ride is satisfyingly firm but not harsh, and overall responses are deft.

For 2016, the Acura MDX lineup technically comes only one way, with various options packages upping the equipment levels and price. The basic MDX comes with the 3.5-liter V6 engine and 9-speed automatic transmission. Beyond that, there are the LED headlights, keyless entry with push-button start, a backup camera, 3-zone climate control, and a power liftgate. You also get heated front seats and an 8-speaker audio system that includes Aha Radio and Pandora. The Acura MDX backs up its 5-star and IIHS Top Safety Pick + crash test ratings with seven airbags, and trailer-sway control on all-wheel-drive models.

Where the Acura can’t measure up to more prestigious crossovers is on the inside. Although touches such as open-pore wood and contrasting piping for the leather seats are welcome, the MDX simply doesn’t feel as special as the plush Audi or the gorgeously trimmed Volvo. Fit and finish is good, but the MDX’s dashboard has a mostly plain design and uses plenty of utilitarian-looking materials. The dual-screen setup for controlling the radio, navigation, and climate settings is dated at best and infuriating at worst. Tasks that should be simple, such as turning on the heated seats or changing radio stations, require using the lower touchscreen, which has a complex menu structure and is slow to respond to inputs. We hope Acura’s new infotainment system will be much better.

The MDX, like Acura as a whole, continues to occupy a sort of middle ground, a bit below true luxury but certainly above mainstream brands. It also remains competent, practical, and surprisingly lithe for a seven-passenger crossover, all attributes that make it a smart buy for well-heeled families. Although the MDX’s interior is showing its age, Acura hasn’t messed with success, whatever you think of the nose job.

Unlike other car companies, Acura only offers the MDX in one trim. To get you the MDX you want, Acura offers various packages instead. For the heated and cooled seats in the Advance package, for example, you need to buy the Technology package. Want the Entertainment package? It’s equipped depending on whether you buy the Technology or Advance package.
