This is straight from Consumer Reports! I could not have said it better myself. The review is in! When you’re ready to test drive the 2010 Acura MDX stop by your local Cincinnati Acura dealer for the ultimate in test drives!
Acura’s three-row luxury SUV is a sibling of the more family-focused Honda Pilot. The MDX was redesigned for the 2007 year, and it was given a mid-cycle freshening for 2010 that brought a brand-new six-speed automatic transmission, as well as a few other tweaks and additional standard content.
To evaluate the updates, we bought a new 2010 Acura MDX for $46,715, including the extra-cost navigation system–the only major option on our tester.
The MDX has a slick and powerful 300-horsepower V6 that delivers quick acceleration and sounds polished even at high revs; the new transmission complements the engine perfectly to form a solid, smooth drivetrain.The MDX is agile. We found it easy to drive, even in a hurry with little body roll and responsive steering. It allows for a bit of cornering line adjustability with the onset of oversteer at its limits, but the electronic stability control system keeps the SUV in line.
Drivers will find plenty of space and a tall, commanding seating position. The front seats are comfortable and supportive, and the second row is roomy for adults. Children will be the only ones who find the third row comfortable, and even then access to them is snug.
The MDX is well appointed with faux wood, soft-touch panels, and quality materials.
Overall, the MDX performs better than vehicles costing far more. For more insights, see our full MDX road test and ratings, available to online subscribers.
