2014 Acura MDX: I Like This Crossover's Size
April 9, 2014
There are many aspects to our 2014 Acura MDX that I enjoy, but one of the more basic happens to be its overall size. It's not too small and it's not too big. As three-row crossover SUVs go, this one seems just right to me.
I have a family with two young kids, and I certainly appreciate the versatility and cargo space that a three-row SUV provides. That third-row gives me the ability to take the grandparents out with us for dinner, for instance, or take along a friend's kids to the Saturday soccer game. Alternately, fold that third-row down and you've got enough cargo space to make family road trips a lot easier.
At the same time, though, our MDX never feels too big. It slides into parking spaces easily and goes around turns with uncommon agility. I never feel like I'm driving a lumbering vehicle or minivan. The MDX seems more like a wagon, actually. EPA-estimated fuel economy is also quite good for this class.
A friend of mine who has a life largely resembling mine recently bought a 2014 MDX. I think he made a pretty smart decision.
