One of top 3 luxury SUV, 2012 Acura MDX

Published on by thepandacover

To be one of top 3 luxury midsize SUVs, 2012 Acura MDX is fun to drive and it is a worthy investment for most people too. Reviewers and test drivers say it provides a great combination of sporty performance, good value and interior comfort. It is also one of the least-expensive SUVs in its class, and most of the competitors that undercut its price don't offer the same package of performance, quality and features.

MSRP of the 2012 Acura MDX is $43,030. If it is under your budget, you should get it. It comes in only one trim level, though a variety of packages are available to upgrade the interior and performance. The MDX saw a fairly comprehensive refresh in 2010, so for the 2012 model year, it doesn't get any significant changes or updates.

Reviewers and test drivers love its powerful engine and standard all-wheel drive, but they also result in mediocre fuel economy compared with two-wheel drive competitors. Additionally, families that need a third row fit for adults won't find it in an Acura, since the MDX's third row is a tight squeeze, even for kids. However, the MDX does win significant family-friendly points for its four sets of LATCH connectors for car seats. Three of those LATCH connectors are in the second row, making it easy for families to keep everyone close together. Families should also like available features like a rear-seat entertainment system and the MDX's strong crash test scores and reliability ratings.

The 2012 Acura MDX got high praise from "Car and Driver" and "Kelley Blue Book". "Car and Driver" said:"It proffers creamy ride quality (even in sport mode, which is the default setting), generally good steering feel, comfortable seats, respectable roominess in its second and third rows, subdued road and wind noise in most conditions, and ease of operation." Kelley Blue Book said:"By combining manageable dimensions with 7-passenger capacity, a comfortable highway ride with responsive in-town handling and car-like construction with respectable off-pavement capability, the MDX has been one of our favorite SUVs since its introduction for the 2001 model year."
