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.

It's the new entry-level Maserati Levante and it's almost $15,000 less than the next rung up the ladder. It's still got a twin-turbo V6 and it still has loads of kit. So, what's not to like?

Pros
It's still got a big presence
It goes well and sounds even better
Ride comfort is excellent with air suspension
Sporty handling with solid composure
Very comfortable cockpit and all the latest features including Apple CarPlay
General refinement
ZF eight-speed gearbox is a big plus

Cons
Not as sharp as the Porsche Cayenne
Generic rear styling
Still 10 grand more than the Porsche
