2014 Acura MDX: Center Storage Extravaganza

October 25, 2013

Does the 2014 Acura MDX have the ultimate center storage compartment?

It does so many different things. There are pockets for small items like iPods and phones, a non-skid shelf, a deep compartment for a briefcase. But as I usually see women driving the MDX, I would imagine that most drivers stash their purses there. I know I did.

Here is a video tour:

And here in pictures, are the many configurations of the center console.

How would you use this storage compartment?

    Pretty good stuff. They know that the U in CUV stands for Utility and they're making that center console so useful for so many different things. They must have borrowed some CR-V designers for a couple of days. I have one gripe and it's the same one I have with virtually every car that has power/audio/USB ports in the center storage compartment. Putting all these ports at the bottom of the compartment looks just fine when you're drawing it up in your CAD software or when you pick the car up at the dealer. But as soon as you start filling that compartment up with your crap (as people who own these vehicles will likely do) you have to struggle to get access to the ports. Also, the crap crammed into the compartment can damage the connectors by putting pressure on them from the top and sides. I'd like these connectors to either be moved further up in the compartment or in a separate compartment or sub-section where they are better protected and easier to access.

    Sounds like its big enough for a AK style pistol and more than a few mags. Very useful if you travel in less than pleasant areas or in L.A Traffic.
