To me, the MDX offers by far the best canvas for Acura's current razor-blade-and-origami styling theme. What looks bulbous and disproportionate on the brand's cars and smaller crossovers looks at home on this medium/large crossover. I especially like the cool-looking graphite-colored wheels on our fully loaded test vehicle. Even the many-buttoned center stack that Joe mentions seems less annoying here, for some reason, than in smaller Acura products.
The MDX should be near the top of the shopping list for drivers who want a reasonable-size three-row crossover with sporty handling and a strong-sounding engine. The only real downside is its numb steering.
