Acura MDX 2020 Review


This SUV has already conquered a lot of people with its spaciousness and comfortable ride. It boasts of the capacity up to 7 people, which allows to use this vehicle even with large get-togethers. The entertainment system help you make any trip not boring. V-6 engine makes this car surprisingly fast. Acura MDX  is not as stylish and sophisticated as other cars of this class, but despite this, it remains very attractive and worthy of attention.

In 2020, the manufacturer practically did not change anything in this car. You can still find a gasoline and gas-electric hybrid model in the market. 

Engines, Transmission and Performance

As we noted earlier, the engine is standard for cars of this class: this is the 290-hp V-6. The nine-speed transmission provides smooth performance, this makes the control of the car nice and simple, and the ride as comfortable as possible. The hybrid model switches between engines very quickly. At the same time, manufacturers do not recommend towing a hybrid car, although a conventional engine can tow up to 5,000 pounds without problems. In general, the car is very comfortable and totally worth its money.

Fuel Economy

In addition to the comfort it provides, this vehicle is still very economical. During testing, it showed fuel consumption of 28 mpg. It is very good indicator. Average for such cars is 30 mpg. But the hybrid model is not as impressive as its traditional counterpart. It showed 25 mpg. In addition, the it weigh 244 pounds (0.11 t) heavier and is not able to use the battery charge as efficiently as possible, which we did not like. But on the city roads, the hybrid model showed high productivity and good performance. 26 mpg in the city is a very good indicator.

Interior, Comfort and Cargo

This car cannot boast as much space in the passenger compartment and luggage compartment as its competitors. Many other crossovers and off-road vehicles, for example from Audi, can offer passengers with much more legro. Despite this, this model has passed all the tests and is considered quite comfortable. According  interior and exterior design, we can also say that it is quite simple, but there is nothing repulsive about it.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

The car received high marks in various crash tests and boasts a high level of security. Also, there are features such as cruise control and automatic braking in extreme situations. You need to pay extra attention to such functions in the car. There are a lot of good safety function in the basic settings of car, which makes this model very attractive in the eyes of motorists.

Infotainment and Connectivity

Unfortunately, with the entertainment system in the basic configuration, not everything is so rosy and fun here as in many other crossovers, but this can be fixed for an additional fee.
