2014 model year changes
The Acura MDX midsize luxury SUV is completely redesigned for 2014. New exterior sheetmetal offers sensuous curves with a revised, refined version of Acura's trademark grille. LED "jewel eye" headlights occupy the front corners, while LED taillights make their way onto the new machine as well. The 2014 MDX is about two inches longer than its predecessor, with a longer wheelbase as well. The MDX is narrower as well and the overall impact is of a slimmer, trimmer MDX. Inside, the cabin is a more sophisticated take on last year's theme, with a new touchscreen that incorporates many of the individual dials and buttons of before. Third-row seat access is improved thanks to push-button sliding middle-row seats. Underneath is a new light truck chassis, devised exclusively for the MDX, while underhood, the previous 300-hp 3.7L V6 is replaced by a less powerful 290-hp 3.5L V6. Overall, the 2014 MDX is 275 pounds leaner than the outgoing model. For the first time since its 2001 introduction, the MDX is offered in front-wheel drive, with all-wheel drive now a $2,000 option.
Attractive styling; improved fuel efficiency; room for seven; advanced technology; available all-wheel drive
Special features for 2014
The Acura MDX seems to grow in popularity every year, and the new third-generation model is no exception. Acura engineers accentuated the positive from last year's model to arrive at a midsize luxury SUV that is easy to love and even easier to live with. Three rows of seats makes carpooling a breeze, while increased cargo space behind the second row of seats makes carting around a weekend project's worth of gardening supplies a snap. Front-wheel-drive availability makes the MDX a bit easier on the wallet, for those who don't need Acura's excellent Super Handling All-Wheel Drive. And like all Acuras, this one is loaded with plenty of excellent, useful technology to enhance entertainment, comfort, and safety in equal measures.
Updated for 2014, the Acura MDX is a mid-size luxury SUV with seating for seven. The MDX is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 VTEC® engine that produces 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque. A 6-speed automatic transmission is paired with AWD (or FWD) enabling the MDX to achieve an EPA estimated range of 18 mpg city to 28 mpg highway. Features include HID headlights, blind spot information system, adaptive cruise control, hands-free phone capabilities, automatic climate control, GPS-linked temperature control, iPod integration, rear-seat entertainment system, real-time traffic/weather, and voice recognition. Safety is comprised of an advanced airbag system, vehicle stability assist (VSA), collision mitigation brake system, anti-lock braking (ABS), and tire pressure monitoring (TPMS). The MDX is backed by a 4-year/50,000-mile warranty.
