Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For 2020, the MDX carries over without any changes to its appearance, mechanical components, or available features. The lineup continues to offer a gasoline and gas-electric hybrid model as well as a second-row bench that allows up to seven passengers or captain's chairs that seat up to six. However, Acura did increase the base price of the regular MDX and the Sport Hybrid by $100.

Pros
Entertaining to drive—for a three-row crossover, quick and smooth hybrid powertrain, standard driver assists.

Cons
Unremarkable passenger space, quirky touchscreen setup, options inflate the price.

The 2020 Acura MDX is a stately three-row family crossover that has aged well.

PROS

Confident power
Spread-out space
Good efficiency from hybrid
Standard active safety features

CONS
Pricey options packages
Top trims don’t feel quite as luxurious as we’d expect

Shallow cargo area

The 2020 Acura MDX Hybrid comes with all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 7-speed automated manual.No significant changes for 2020.

Pros
Generous array of features and active driver aids for the money
Excellent all-wheel-drive system allows for sharp handling
Generous interior storage
Quiet, comfortable and spacious cabin

Cons
Cabin looks and feels less luxurious than those of some rivals
Adaptive cruise control can be slow to respond and abrupt when it does
Dual-screen infotainment system can be quite difficult to use
Handoff between all-electric and engine power is clunky

Lincoln has given the Nautilus a thorough interior redesign for 2021, bringing the mid-size SUV in line with the rest of the company's lineup. A new dashboard design incorporates a larger 13.2-inch infotainment display running the latest version of Ford's Sync 4 operating system. Lincoln's now-pervasive piano-key shifter replaces last year's push-button setup.

PROS
Comfort-tuned suspension,
nicely-outfitted cabin,
large infotainment display.

CONS
Top Black Label model's eye-watering price,
lacks athleticism,
not as fuel efficient as other similar SUVs.
