2011 Acura MDX
The 2011 Acura MDX ranks 1 out of 17 Luxury Midsize SUVs. This ranking is based on our analysis of 81 published reviews and test drives of the Acura MDX, and our analysis of reliability and safety data.
The Acura MDX had strong performance, a high-tech interior and – the holy of holies – space for three car seats, with LATCH connecters and all, in the back seat.
Acura first launched its luxury crossover in 2001 to take on luxury utility vehicles like the Audi Q7, Lexus RX, Cadillac SRX and Infiniti FX — yet with a decidedly biased sporty on-road behavior. Now the latest MDX features the Super Handling AWD system and is tuned to tear up the asphalt, not the dirt. Acura developed the MDX with testing on Germany’s Nurburgring — which is why you won’t find a low-range transfer case on the options list of the MDX.
On the road, the Acura MDX shines with its powerful V6 engine. While its fuel economy isn’t the best in the class, the power is so good that you may think it’s worth the tradeoff. Handling is also good, even in tight spaces like parking lots. Acrua’s Super-Handling All-Wheel drive system is standard, and the MDX does well in crash tests.
