2010 model year changes

The MDX got quite a makeover for 2010, including a revamped, love-it-or-hate-it V-shaped grille that brings the SUV in line with the rest of Acura's design language. Headlights and exhaust pipes got a more subtle treatment, while the interior retains the same layout with upgraded materials and technology. The biggest difference for 2010 is in the drivetrain, where the MDX is the first Acura to receive Honda's 6-speed automatic transmission, which in this case is mated to a new 3.7L V6. The combination is quick and smooth, and the extra gear at the top offers a one mile per gallon lift to the gas mileage over 2009.

Special features for 2010

This 7-seater SUV has a nice array of standard features even at the base level, and the options list is pretty lengthy. There's plenty of room for a family and its gear -- and the MDX includes 10 cupholders for just such duty. Fit and finish is across the board excellent, and a very quiet cabin. Super Handling all wheel drive is more for on-pavement performance than off-roading, but for those looking for a minivan or station wagon upgrade, the MDX performs admirably.
