To choose a winner, Edmunds.com editors took a range of attributes into account, including long-haul comfort, headroom, cargo room, third-row seating access, safety equipment, fuel economy and handling. Redesigned from the top down for the 2014 model year, the Acura MDX sports a new lighter chassis, powerful V6 engine and family-friendly amenities that appeal to a wide range of prospective drivers.
"Acura has long set the standard in the luxury crossover segment, and they've once again redefined what drivers should expect with the new MDX," said Anthony Delvento, general manager of Prime Acura North, a New Hampshire Acura dealer. "While it may be a familiar shape, the new MDX is improved in every conceivable way, which is an impressive feat given the quality of the 2013 model."
Powered by a 290-horsepower V6 engine and available with Acura's Super Handling All-Wheel Drive, the new MDX offers potent performance in any conditions. That power doesn't come at the expense of fuel economy though, as the MDX is also able to return 28 mpg on the highway. Inside, there's room for seven passengers or up to 91 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded flat.
