2012 Acura MDX
2012 Acura MDX
The MDX is nearing its sixth birthday, yet it remains Acura's best-selling SUV and is one of the company's most popular models altogether. What's the secret to its success? Packing a little bit of everything into a single package certainly doesn't hurt. There are plenty of three-row, seven-seat SUVs on the market, but few handle and perform quite as well as the MDX. It's not easy to make a 4500-pound machine handle like a smaller sedan, but Acura employs some technological magic to make it possible. The company's ubiquitous torque-shifting SH-AWD system certainly aids in cornering, but the available Integrated Dynamic System (IDS), which allows the driver to choose between two damper-stiffness settings, helps iron out body roll on twisty roads. The 3.7-liter V-6 provides sufficient power, while the smooth six-speed automatic transmission helps squeak out a few extra miles per gallon over the previous five-speed automatic. Acura's ZDX may feel (and look) slightly sportier, but the MDX has a tremendous advantage over its razor-edge sibling. With room for seven, a flexible cargo area, the ability to tow 5000 pounds, and the agility of a vehicle half its size, it's a more well-rounded option.
2014 Acura MDX Front Three Quarters View
Nearly six years have passed since the second-generation Acura MDX debuted, and a little more than two since it was overhauled and wrapped with a mild facelift. If it feels like high time for a new MDX, you’re in luck: an all-new model is just around the corner, and our spies caught an early Acura MDX prototype undergoing testing in Europe.

Acura is set to replace its best-seller, the MDX crossover, and our spy shooters caught a prototype under a heavy coat of camouflage.It's about time for a new version of the MDX; the current generation was introduced in 2006 and subsequently face-lifted and updated for the 2010 model year.
2012 Acura MDX Front Left View
Let's be honest: the third row of seats in the Acura MDX is laughable. There is virtually no leg- or headroom, relegating these seats for use only by small children or extremely flexible adults. And with the third row raised, cargo room also is diminished quite a lot. Put that concern aside, and the MDX is a great vehicle. It drives much like smaller Acuras, with sporty handling and an excellent V-6 engine. I'm even a fan of the angular, creased exterior design.
Luxury SUVs Front View 2
The decision to purchase a minivan is a pragmatic one. Drive a minivan and you admit to the world that you have children and a Costco membership, and that you want one vehicle that can transport your offspring and multi-packs of toilet paper.

It looks like the March 11 earthquake isn’t the only thing impacting product planning in Japan: fluctuating Yen/Dollar exchange rates may be the driving force behind a decision to build the Acura MDX in Alabama.
