The MDX has been a popular SUV since its introduction in 2001. The MDX provides a luxury car feel with excellent ride, maneuverability, and a cabin that is roomy and comfortable. Under the hood, all versions of the MDX feature a 300 bhp, 3.7L V6 engine. Acura's Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system is standard. A six-speed automatic is the only offered transmission. Although many competitors offer V8 engines, the power output of the MDX V6 nearly equals the output of a V8. An available Technology package adds a satellite-linked navigation system and a 410-watt premium surround-sound audio system among other features. The Advance package adds more unusual features such as an active damping system, adaptive cruise control and a collision mitigation braking system. The Entertainment package adds a rear-seat DVD entertainment system and heated rear seats. With Honda's reliability and high resale values, the MDX is an all-around safe bet.
