The '14 MDX looks similar to the '13, except for the jewel headlights and less obtrusive beak.
But the driving experience is much different.
In comfort mode, it drives like a Lexus RX300.
In sport mode the suspension and steering tightens up and it drives like a '13 MDX.
'Normal' mode is a happy medium.
Power is still impressive.
Acura claims it is faster than the '13.
I believe it.
Mileage is excellent.
I'll get at least 26mpg on the highway.
Around town has been closer to 20.
The technology in the stereo, navigation, bluetooth, etc is impressive, but not intuitive.
I have had to flip through the manual on several occasions to do something I had thought was elementary.
Easier access to third row seats.
70/30 second row bench slides forward and back.
Integrated Dynamic System (driving modes)
Silky smooth acceleration
Quiet at highway speeds
Voice commands are not always reliable.
Inputs are needed to prepare the computer for some commands.
Fog lights are not standard?!
