The 2017 Acura MDX is one of the best-driving, most technologically advanced three-row luxury crossovers, and a new Sport Hybrid model and active suspension should only add to that reputation.
Among luxury crossovers, the Acura MDX is a standout in nearly every possible way—and it stands as quite a counterpoint to the brand’s sedans, which can’t seem to get proper traction in the market.While this model is already one of the best-driving models in its class, the 2017 Acura MDX has been given ride and handling improvements, more standard active-safety features, and a new Sport Hybrid variant that promises both better performance and higher fuel economy numbers.We give it a 7.5 out of 10.

Pros
New Sport Hybrid
Refined and quiet
Great handling
Space for six

Cons
Rough-shifting transmission
Too much bright trim
Complex infotainment interface
Lacks steering feedback

The 2017 Acura MDX receives a comprehensive face-lift, including a new front end with fresh headlight and grille designs. A Sport Hybrid model debuts with more power and better fuel economy than the regular MDX. New standard features for 2017 include capless fueling, an electronic parking brake, auto high beams, additional USB ports and the AcuraWatch suite of active safety aids (previously optional on some MDX versions). Newly available features include 20-inch wheels, LED foglights, automatic locking when you walk away from the vehicle, power-folding mirrors, a surround-view camera system, a heated steering wheel, upgraded wood trim and second-row captain's chairs.

Pros
Generous array of features and active driver aids for the money
Optional SH-AWD system enhances handling and all-season surefootedness
Smooth and confident acceleration from the V6 engine
Quiet, comfortable and spacious cabin

Cons
Touchscreen isn't user-friendly and graphics are subpar
Cabin looks and feels less luxurious than some rivals
Clunky auto stop-start function
Adaptive cruise control can be slow to respond and abrupt when it does

HIGHS:
Standard active-safety tech, newly refined schnoz, excellent handling.

LOWS
No longer the best, expensive option packages, frustrating infotainment system.

Still a compelling alternative to European luxury SUVs.
