The Acura MDX continues to be one of my favorite SUVs in the luxury segment, mostly because of its looks. And for 2010 the big MDX got a minor facelift, including front bumper redesign. The muscular exterior design is nicely complemented in this example by the large 19-inch graphite wheels and the dark cherry exterior paint.
The 2010 MDX interior gets minor changes, like a thicker steering wheel and new wood trim. The center stack is still busy, but not frustrating to use; and the navigation system is a charm. Although the cabin is spacious and accommodating, rearward visibility is compromised by the large c-pillars and short rear window. But, the new multi-view rear-view camera helps dramatically when putting the MDX in a tight spot.
Nothing changes under the hood, but, honestly, it really didn't need to. The 3.7-liter V-6 has been around a while now, but doesn't feel dated and has enough power and torque to scoot the heavy MDX around town while getting decent gas mileage.
