This car is like driving a sports car in an SUV. We were downsizing from a Chevy Avalanche, and this was a great find. The fuel economy is the only real drawback that we can say at this point in time about the vehicle. You really should test drive this vehicle if you are considering anything in this class. Much more responsive than the Lexus and a lot more room. Looks like Acura did a great job of redesigning the whole vehicle. This is a true pleasure to be behind the wheel. Acceleration is very smooth, shifting is as well. Braking and handling is next to none.
Drivability period!! Very fun and responsive to drive. Great stereo and navigation system. Great visibility, the rear camera is very good quality and operates very quickly when put in reverse. Headlights make it extremely easy to see at night, very definitive allocation of light where you need it
Fuel economy really must get better. Heated seats could definitely be warmer, and the passenger seat could also have the back heated. Video screen on dash could be more clear, maybe the sunshield distorts it a bit. Automatic rear hatch should be a standard feature on all trim levels.
