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.


The popularity of Acura's crossovers has never been in doubt. After all, what's not to like? They add style and luxury to the expectation of Honda-like refinement and reliability. The larger of the two—the midsize MDX—shares a platform with the boxy Pilot and seats up to seven in three rows of seats.

What's New for 2015

After a complete redesign for 2014, the MDX returns for 2015 without any changes of note.

Choosing Your Acura MDX

The MDX comes with one engine—a 3.5-liter V6 that produces 290 horsepower—and one transmission—a six-speed automatic. Together, they return 20 mpg city and 28 mpg highway with front-wheel drive or 18 mpg city and 27 mpg highway with optional all-wheel drive.

Acura tends to offer well-equipped base models, and the MDX is no exception. Tri-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a power tailgate and speed-sensitive wipers are examples of standard features.

Following Acura tradition, the MDX bundles optional features into packages rather than offering them on an à la carte basis. Be aware that each can add substantially to the base price—opting for the Advance and Entertainment packages, for instance, will add a cool $12,000 to the MDX's $42,565 suggested base price.


This package blends upgrades like navigation and HD radio with driver assists like forward collision and lane departure warnings.


The Entertainment package maximizes comfort and convenience for back-seat passengers with a 9-inch screen, a DVD system and heated second-row seats.


The ultimate package for the MDX comes with extras like premium leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, and a collision mitigation system that can apply the brakes to prevent an accident.

CarsDirect Tip

Skip the added expense and weight of all-wheel drive unless you need the traction. Otherwise, even when fully loaded, an MDX is an excellent value in its segment. Let your budget and needs determine which option packages you choose.
