About the MDX

The long-running Acura MDX crossover SUV was first launched back in 2000 for the 2001 model year. Since then, it has spanned four generations of models, with the latest ones arriving in the 2022 model year.

Each generation of the MDX that has been released has seen a gradual increase in the intricacy and chic exterior styling of the model. The MDX has risen in status through the years to now be declared as Acura’s “flagship” model after they discontinued the RLX in 2020. This follows a growing pattern among OEMs, making an SUV the brand’s new flagship model.

While the exterior design has become more elaborate and intricate, the MDX has maintained a strong record in safety and reliability, maintaining a 5-star NHTSA rating and “Good” ratings across the board with the IIHS.

Components and powertrains have evolved through the years, too. Currently, the MDX is offered with either a 3.0-liter turbo V6, or a 3.5liter V6 engine. The former is only offered on the top-level Type S trim (starting at $67,745), but delivers a very impressive 355-hp and is matched with a smooth-shifting 10-speed automatic transmission.

The larger 3.5liter engine isn’t turbocharged, and thus only offers up to 290-hp in total, but it is still connected to the same new 10-speed transmissions. The previous generation had made use of a 9-speed shifter. The Type S remains the most impressive of the current models, managing 0 to 60-mph in just 5.5 seconds. The regular version takes 6.5 seconds.

Interiors have been improved for the fourth-generation models, making use of French-stitched leather, open-pore wood, brushed metal accents, and more. The driver can get 16-way power adjustability on their seat, as well as a very handy massage function to really take the sting out of long journeys.
