Expert Rating

Not Available

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.

2023 Acura MDX Overview

Matthew Pilgrim
Automotive Editor - July 8, 2022

What's New

The 2023 Acura MDX is mostly a carry-over model from its full redesign last year. It gains complementary AcuraLink for three years (think remote start, door locks, and crash notification) and scheduled maintenance for two years.

Choosing Your Acura MDX

The MDX is offered in six trims – MDX, Technology, A-Spec, Advance, Type S, and Type S Advance – and starting prices range from $50,245 to $73,895.

Engine Choices

The MDX is equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 that develops 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque and a 10-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. The Type S models receive a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 that develops 355 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque from a low 1,400 rpm while the automatic transmission gets beefed up for the additional power and provides faster shifts.

While front-wheel drive is standard, Acura’s Super-Handling All-Wheel-Drive system is available for $2,200 and standard on the A-Spec and above trims. The sophisticated system can efficiently drive the front wheels or overdrive the rear outside wheel with up to 70% of available torque for a more nimble feel and increased stability.

The front-wheel-drive models earn an EPA-estimated 19 miles per gallon city, 26 mpg highway, and 22 combined while the AWD system only costs one combined mpg point. The performance-focused Type S model earns just 19 mpg combined, despite its variable-cylinder management system. Premium fuel is recommended.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The MDX is on the larger side of the class. Its length of 198.4 inches is nearly as long as the Audi Q7 and its 78.4-inch width is wider than all but the BMW X5. Inside, it provides a spacious 18.1 cubic feet of space behind the third row, 48.4 cubic feet behind the second, and 95 cubic feet with both second and third rows folded. All MDX trims are equipped with a third row that provides 29.1 inches of legroom and 36.2 inches of headroom. Towing capacity is 5,000 pounds with all-wheel drive.

Safety Features

The MDX is well equipped with automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot detection with rear cross-traffic braking, full-speed active cruise control with traffic-jam assist, traffic sign recognition, and automatic high beams. The Technology trim gains low-speed braking, parking sensors, and rain-sensing wipers and the Advance includes surround-view cameras.

The MDX earns the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ award (for 2022) with Superior scores for vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to pedestrian crash avoidance, and Good ratings for its headlights – essentially, it couldn’t score any higher. The MDX also earns a five-star overall rating from NHTSA.

Connectivity

The base trim features wireless CarPlay, Android Auto, SiriusXM, HD radio, and Alexa Built-In that are controlled through a 12.3-inch infotainment display with a remote touchpad. Wi-fi, remote connected services, a wireless charging pad, and multiple USB and 12-volt power ports in the first and second rows are also included while each trim level gains features.

The Technology trim gains a mid-level sound system, navigation with real-time traffic, and GPS-linked climate control and the A-Spec trim receives a premium ELS Studio 3D sound system with 16-channels, a 710-watt amplifier, four additional speakers, and cabin talk which makes for easier front to rear conversations. The Advance and the Type S gain a second-row AC outlet as well as more charging ports in the third row. The top-tier Type S Advance is the first Acura to receive the top-shelf ELS Studio 3D Signature Edition with 25 speakers, carbon dome tweeters, 1,000 watts, 22 channels, and two amplifiers.
