Sport Hybrid SH-AWD w/Advance Package 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl gas/electric hybrid 7AM)
The hybrid Advance model handles like it's on rails. This is the 4th model MDX I've owned, and as I'd expected, it's simply far and away superior to any of the others. Pros: Hit the gas (or should it be called the hybrid) pedal and it flies off the line. Quietest interior I've ever been in. Steering is tight and responsive. My kids are big fans of the second row captain's chairs. Driver's assisting safety features (lane departure, etc.) seem top notch. Interior features (seats, wood accents) are very nice. Averaging 26.6 MPG so far. Cons: not a fan of the infotainment system. Miss the old buttons for heating and cooling seats. Takes too long (IMHO) for rear view camera to kick in. Had to wait over a minute yesterday for navigation menu to activate - not a big deal unless you're running late like I was. A few minor things I'll have to get used to. Overall I'm a huge fan of this ride. After test-driving the competition, I'd have to say that the bang you get for your buck with the MDX made my choice a no-brainer. Again - just one man's opinion.
