19 City / 27 Highway
Automotive Editor -

With room for seven and an impressive load of standard equipment, the Acura MDX remains a relative bargain in the realm of luxury crossovers. Its reasonable approach to premium family travel seems about right for a target market that still has bills to pay.

What's New for 2016

The MDX gains a nine-speed automatic transmission, and most available safety features are bundled into a new package called AcuraWatch Plus.

Choosing Your Acura MDX

The MDX ranks as midsize, offering three rows of seating, but less interior room overall than the largest crossovers. That said, cargo space is undeniably generous at 91 cubic feet with the rear seats folded. The standard power-sliding second row is a welcome touch that allows third-row passengers get in and out with dignity.

The sole engine is a 3.5-liter V6 with 290 horsepower, matched to a new nine speed automatic transmission with push-button controls (replacing last year's six-speed unit). All-wheel drive is available in place of the standard front-drive setup. Properly equipped, the MDX can tow up to 5,000 pounds.

The standard cabin is lavishly equipped with leather upholstery, heated front seats with driver memory, tri-zone automatic climate control, a power-adjustable steering wheel, and an eight-speaker sound system with Internet and satellite radio. Tech features include Bluetooth phone and audio, a multi-angle rearview camera and dual display screens. Also standard are LED headlamps, a sunroof, a power liftgate and keyless ignition. The MDX rolls on 18-inch wheels.

You can build on this single trim level with a series of option packages:

AcuraWatch Plus

Adds a suite of safety technology, including adaptive cruise control, forward collision mitigation with automatic braking, lane keeping assist, blind spot monitoring and road departure mitigation.

Technology

Gets you a navigation system and a 10-speaker Acura/ELS surround-sound system, both with voice controls. Other perks including rain-sensing wipers, solar-sensing climate control and 19-inch wheels.

Entertainment

Treats rear passengers to a DVD entertainment system, plus heated seats, sunshades and a household-style power outlet. Note that the Technology package is required with this package, meaning you've now added a stiff total of $6,425 to the MDX's base MSRP.

Advance

Includes the contents of the AcuraWatch Plus and Technology packages, plus upgraded leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, remote start, roof rails, front and rear parking sensors and (optional) an upgraded version of the Entertainment package. You also get an engine stop-start function to conserve fuel.

There are no individual options for the MDX beyond the usual dealer-installed accessories.

CarsDirect Tip

For all its advanced safety features, the AcuraWatch Plus bundle adds only $1,500 to the base price. We wouldn't buy an MDX without it. Other packages include lots of features for the money, but it can all add up. When fully loaded, the price for an MDX with Advance and Entertainment packages soars to $55,080, or $57,080 with all-wheel drive.
