With six available trims, there’s an Acura MDX to suit most budgets and buyer’s needs, but all models get the same wonderful 290 horsepower 3.5-liter V6 and somewhat disappointing nine-speed automatic gearbox. Front-wheel-drive is the standard drivetrain, with all-wheel-drive optional on most models and standard on the sporty A-Spec. All trims are highly specified, with items like LED headlights, a power sunroof, power tailgate, heated power front seats, and tri-zone climate equipped right from the base derivative, as are AcuraWatch safety systems. From the Technology Package, 20-inch wheels are equipped, along with blind spot monitoring, navigation, and a ten-speaker audio system. The A-Spec shares this equipment, but douses the MDX in a sporty aesthetic, with blacked out exterior detailing and model-specific internal details. Meanwhile, the Advance Package packs the most features, with a surround-view camera, heated steering wheel, and heated rear seats. Lastly, an Entertainment package can be equipped to both the Technology and Advance packages, adding a rear entertainment screen and extra speakers, the size and number depending on which base you choose.
