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 base S trim gains standard 17-inch aluminum wheels while the mid-range SV receives heated front seats, a remote start system, a heated steering wheel, fog lamps, and a leather-wrapped shift knob.

Pros

spacious cabin,
fuel efficient engine.

low-tech infotainment system,
lacks towing capacity.
