Second MDX we have owned. First generation was good but unexciting. New MDX quality matches all of the German competition with Honda reliability. Very solid feel and intuitive electronics. Nav and bluetooth are great. ELS sound system is excellent - especially when surround is turned on.
Add keyless start system.
Better gas mileage. But if you compare it to other models you can't do much better with the same amount of space.
