I cant believe its almost better than a sedan, the way MDX controls its body roll, sudden stop with almost no head bobbing. Very quiet compared to my TL'04 and a ton of gadgets. I've always said that I'm not really into SUV (not fast enuf, heavy bodyroll, poor handling and sipping gas like crazy). Those impressions I got after i test drove X5 n RX but MDX adv has both world. With Adv model's price, I cud go with X5 premium or diesel, but reliability is my main concern. 7 seat is also a plus, bigger than X5 and it seems MDX sells better. After watching a youtube's video how MDX was compared with audi/RX in 20-30 degreed steep climbing an icy/snowy ramp, I knew my choice.
Minimized bodyroll, head bobbing and its smoooth SH-AWD handling. Quiet and soft ride with sporty mode option by a touch of a button. Tons of gadget.
