    Expert Rating

    5.0 (Excellent)
    19 City / 28 Highway

    Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

    You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

    5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

    4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

    3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

    2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

    1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

    2014 Acura MDX OVERVIEW

    The third-generation MDX is a midsize definition of family luxury for the Acura brand. The seven-passenger vehicle uses a 3.5-liter engine that produces 290 horsepower, and is offered in both two-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. The two-wheel drive has earned an EPA rating 20 mpg city and 28 mpg highway. Acura’s super-handling all-wheel drive system is also available on all models, but drops EPA ratings to 18 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway.

    What's New for 2014

    It’s a whole new MDX from top to bottom, from a new platform to a new 3.5-liter engine.

    Choosing Your Acura MDX

    Standard features includes LED headlights, keyless access with push button start, sliding second-row seating, eight-inch touchscreen, expanded drivers view mirror, a 432-watt Acura sound system, and an acoustic glass front windows and windshield.

    Base prices range from $42,290 for a front-wheel drive MDX in base trim to $56,505 for a fully-loaded all-wheel drive variant. Aside from all-wheel drive, which you should only choose if you need it, we recommend buying as much MDX as your budget allows.

    Technology Package

    Included in this package are: 19-inch alloy wheels, keyless access for all four doors, a navigation system with voice recognition, a premium audio system with ten speakers, forward collision warning, blind spot information system, and lane departure warning.

    Technology and Rear Entertainment Package

    This complements the audio system with rear window shades and a DVD entertainment system that features a 9-inch display.

    Advance Package

    The top-of-the-line MDX package includes a lane keeping assist system, adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, a 16.2 inch display for the rear entertainment system, collision mitigation and adaptive cruise control with low speed following function.

    Optional Accessories can be ordered as standalone features such as a heated steering wheel, LED fog lights and a Trailer Hitch ATF Cooler Kit that is capable of towing up 5000 pounds.
