2007 Acura MDX Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By KBB.com Editors


By combining manageable dimensions with seven-passenger capacity, a comfortable highway ride with responsive in-town handling and car-like construction with respectable off-pavement capability, the MDX has been one of our favorite SUVs since its introduction for the 2001 model year. In fact, as it trails only the Lexus RX 350 in category sales, the MDX has proven a favorite of many. For 2007, Acura introduces an all-new MDX, designed with new emphases on performance, technology and styling. Fortunately, all the characteristics that made the original MDX so appealing have carried over intact, if not improved.

The perfectly practical MDX is also the most powerful, most tech-savvy V6 SUV on the road, giving it assured access to the top tier of any premium midsize SUV shopping list.

If you prefer the softer, tamer side of a premium lifestyle, you might be more comfortable in the Lexus RX 350.

What's New for 2007

While the all-new, second-generation MDX is even more family-friendly than its predecessor, a new 300-horsepower V6, performance-enhancing all-wheel-drive system and sharp sheetmetal team up to empower the SUV with newfound attitude and ability.

Driving It Driving Impressions

The fact that Acura introduced the all-new MDX on a racetrack–-alongside six-cylinder versions of the BMW X5 and Porsche Cayenne, no less–-says quite a bit. The fact that it was indeed the MDX that put the biggest smiles on our faces says even more. When pushed hard, the MDX's 300 horsepower, sophisticated all-wheel-drive system and optional active damping system combine to deliver an SUV that's fun to drive even at or near its limits. We were also impressed by the MDX's off-road ability, which we were able to sample on a short but extreme course. Fortunately, because very few will ever negotiate a racetrack or even a muddy trail, the newly athletic MDX is even more pleasing around town and on the highway than its exemplary predecessor.

Squeeze the throttle mid-corner and the MDX's Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system transfers more torque to the rear outside wheel, delivering truer steering response and perceptibly higher cornering limits.
