Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

No significant changes for 2021.

Pros
Generous cargo and passenger room
Quiet and smooth ride
Plenty of standard features
Lots of device charging solutions

Cons
Many advanced safety features only available on top trim levels
Pricier than non-luxury rivals, but cabin materials aren't much nicer
Thirstier than V6-powered competitors

The 2021 Buick Enclave is the smoother, smothering three-row crossover in GM’s stable.

Pros
Great look
Comfortable ride
Good touchscreen
Handsome interior

Cons
Automatic braking not available on all models
Limited body colors on base version
Spendy Avenir
Not very fuel-efficient

Buick's three-row family SUV rolls over to 2021 with only a few tweaks. Premium and Avenir models now come standard with power-adjustable lumbar support for the front seats and a massage feature, while the air ionizer is no longer available. Those two top models also receive a formerly optional package of driver-assistance features—including automated emergency braking and lane-keeping assist—as standard.

Pros
Upscale exterior styling,
plenty of tech features are standard,
large cargo bay.

Cons
Down-market interior materials,
no standard driver-assists on lower trims,
V-6 engine isn't particularly efficient.

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
Handsome looks
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
Third row can be cramped for tall adults
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
