Overview2016 ACURA MDX
The 2016 MDX crossover is a standout in its class. Because of Acura's long-standing reputation for reliability, you're sure to get a dependable vehicle. Though there's only one engine option for the MDX, it's one of the top performers in its class. Like the previous version, the 2016 MDX is available with multiple safety features. When properly equipped, this SUV handles well in poor weather and ranks high for drivers looking for a near-luxury crossover.
Surprisingly Good Handling for an SUVThough the MDX doesn't handle like a sports sedan, it's much more nimble than some other SUVs. The Integrated Dynamics System offers sharp steering responses without sacrificing ride quality. Many drivers will find that the capable V6 engine gets the job done.
Ample Passenger Space (and Cargo Space) for EveryoneWith its three seating rows, the 2016 MDX is a great choice for busy families. Although the third row of seats has slightly less legroom, they're still very comfortable. With those seats folded down, the Acura MDX turns into a competent hauler. Whether you're taking the kids to soccer practice or hauling home a week's worth of groceries, the MDX will be there for you.
A High-Performing EngineA punchy 3.5-liter V6 is the standard for the 2016 MDX; it offers 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque. Fuel efficiency varies based on drivetrain configuration. While FWD models received a rating of 19 mpg city/27 mpg highway, AWD models were rated slightly lower at 18 - 26 mpg. Acura MDXs with the optional engine start/stop system get a few more miles per gallon, with FWD models getting 20 - 27 mpg and AWDs getting 19 - 26 mpg.
It's Not Built for Off-RoadingThe 2016 MDX isn't the best choice for dedicated off-roading. With only a 7.3-inch ground clearance, it's not worth the risk. If you're planning to go off the beaten path with any regularity, consider shopping for a more off-road-ready sport utility vehicle.
There's No High-Performance OptionAcuras are known for their performance, but the MDX isn't in that category. Though few buyers will nitpick the MDX's performance, it's not a sports vehicle by any stretch of the imagination. For some automotive enthusiasts, it might make more sense to go with a different, higher-performing model.
The Cabin Isn't as Luxurious as It Should BeThough Acura is Honda's luxury division, the interior and infotainment system found in the 2016 MDX aren't exactly what most would consider top-of-the-line. The materials and finishes used throughout the cabin could be a little plusher, and the infotainment system's graphics are don't match what is offered by other vehicles in the same class. While many have praised the MDX's interior design, some have said the seating is cramped.
