2014 Acura MDX: Sizable Cargo Area

January 9, 2014

2014 Acura MDX

This is about as much cargo as you can stuff into the 2014 Acura MDX when you still need the third row in place. Luckily for me, it's still quite a bit of stuff.

On this busy weekend, I had to move plenty of people and cargo, so the MDX was the logical choice. I was a little unsure if everything was going to fit, and some things did have to get stuffed in the footwells of the second row, but that's how it goes when you have to make it fit.

With the MDX stuffed to the roof I did notice how much softer it rode. With six people on board and the cargo, the MDX was probably pretty close to its maximum weight rating. I've said before that the "comfort" setting was too soft for my tastes and that was even more obvious under these circumstances. It didn't bother the engine, though, as it was well up to the task. It didn't feel nearly as strained as the chassis and the mileage didn't suffer much.

    Please note that the comfort, normal and sport modes only refer to the steering. The 2014 MDX does not have an adjustable suspension. Also, note that there is a sizable under-floor storage compartment in the third row as well.
