Overview

The Acura MDX is a mid-size sport utility vehicle that was first introduced in 2001. Based on the automaker's front-wheel drive unibody platform, the MDX offers a car-like ride combined with an all-wheel drive powertrain. The second-generation MDX, last completely redesigned for 2007, is the current model. After a refresh for the 2010 model year, the 2011 MDX is a carryover from last year.

The MDX is offered as one model, but in several pre-configured trim lines that mix the technology, entertainment, and advance packages and their equipment. The standard MDX arrives with leather upholstery, air conditioning with tri-zone climate control, automatic xenon headlamps, power liftgate, privacy glass, heated front seats, Bluetooth phone connectivity, an eight-speaker audio package, 18-inch wheels, and more. The Technology Package adds a satellite-based navigation system, multi-view rear parking camera, solar-sensing climate control, upgraded leather upholstery, real-time traffic and weather, and more. The Advance Package builds upon the Technology package by adding adaptive suspension, adaptive cruise control, Acura's Collision Mitigating Braking System (CMBS), 19-inch alloy wheels, and more. The Entertainment Package adds a rear-seat entertainment system and heated second row seats.

The Acura MDX is offered with one engine choice, a 3.7-liter, six-cylinder, rated at 300 horsepower. The standard transmission is a six-speed automatic with paddle shifters and Acura's Grade Logic and Shift Hold Control. All-wheel drive is standard. The EPA rates the fuel economy of the 2011 Acura MDX between 16 mpg city and 21 mpg highway.

The 2011 Acura MDX starts with a base price of about $43,500 and tops out with the MDX with Advance and Entertainment Packages, which starts around $55,000.

Put simply, the TSX sedan was a badge-engineered Honda Accord, which means that the exact car is sold in other parts of the world as the Honda Accord (interestingly enough, the North American market receives its own, larger Honda Accord). When the RSX was discontinued in 2006, the TSX became-and still is-Acura's entry-level offering. Now in its second generation, the Acura TSX sedan was last completely redesigned for the 2009 model year.
