2014 Acura MDX: Great for Passengers

March 20, 2014

2014 Acura MDX

The first time I was in an Acura MDX I was a passenger. I was impressed with its comfort and many entertainment features. It's no surprise to find a wealth of features in a luxury crossover in this price range. But I think I actually prefer being a passenger is this car than driving it.

Sure, it weighs less than its predecessor, is faster, more efficient, and much quieter. And many of the safety and tech features are geared toward the driver. But I have a hard time getting comfortable in the driver seat, the view out the rear window is tiny and the expanded view driver's mirror makes me dizzy.

But as a passenger I can just lean back and enjoy the leather-wrapped goodness. Back seat riders have even more fun. They get the DVD player with wireless headsets where they can play Xbox or watch two different movies at the same time. They also get heated rear seats and sunshades. So, if you're a kid or riding shotgun, you've got it made.
