Edmunds' Josh Sadlier takes you on a walk around Acura's midsize SUV, the 2017 MDX. He goes over specs, design, the interior and more.
Add it all up and this versatile, well-made and feature-packed Acura is arguably the most sensible choice in the midsize luxury SUV segment. There are other options out there that can be more desirable, but perhaps not more sensible. The 2016 Volvo XC90, redesigned at long last, has wowed us with its slick styling, exquisite interior and strong yet fuel-efficient power plants. When similarly equipped, it also offers similar value to the MDX. The overhauled 2016 Audi Q7, meanwhile, has a more restrained design, but it offers a sumptuous cabin, an advanced infotainment interface and an available turbodiesel V6.
Other popular picks include the BMW X5, the Infiniti QX60 and the redesigned 2016 Honda Pilot. All are worth a look, but the well-rounded MDX may represent the best balance of value, utility and luxury.
