Expert Review

Overall Rating


5 Trims are being offered by Acura for 2020 in the MDX that includes Standard, Technology, A-Spec, Advance, and Entertainment Packages. Engine and Transmission options remain the same from last year and Acura hasn’t fiddled with the same. Prices for the MDX range from $44,000 to over $60,000, depending on the trim and options chosen. You do have the option of choosing between the FWD and Super Handling-AWD versions in all the trims, except in the A-Spec and the Entertainment Packages.

Speaking of the rivals of the MDX, SUVs like the Cadillac XT5, Lexus RX 350 and the Buick Enclave take a direct shot at the MDX. However, it’s the Buick and the Acura that seats 7 while the rest can seat only 5.

The 2020 Acura MDX offers a seating capacity of up to seven. It's offered in five trim levels (also termed as packages): Standard, Technology, A-Spec, Advance, and Entertainment Package. The A-Spec package stands apart from the rest of the lineup, owing to its styling on the outside and on the inside and some exclusive features.

We Recommend

Unless you want to be chauffeur driven and want your rear-seat passengers to be embodied with a plethora of creature comforts, the "Standard" trim will do justice for most of the people, opting for this SUV.

2020 Acura MDX SUV Engine and Performance

6.0/10

Powering the 2020 Acura MDX is a 3.5 Liter naturally aspirated V6 delivering 290 hp at 6200 rpm and 267 pounds-feet of torque at 4700 rpm. The SUV delivers power in a smooth and noise-free fashion under normal driving conditions. However, when the need for spirited driving comes up, the motor does provide enough grunt on the move to cater to those demands.

2020 ACURA MDX SUV ENGINE
2020 Acura MDX comes with 3.5L engine 

A 9 Speed Automatic Unit is standard across the range of the 2020 Acura MDX. In terms of responsiveness, this unit isn't the quickest of the lot and feels slow to respond, when on the move. We would have liked the option of Dual Clutch Transmission that is on offer in the Hybrid version of the MDX as it feels way better to drive than the standard 9-speed unit.

On the spec-sheet, one can clearly see that the Acura offers the least power among its rivals but manages to claim the 2nd last spot in terms of torque on offer. Both the Cadillac and the Buick, come with good power figures but it's the Caddy, that takes the lead due to higher torque figures. The Lexus lags behind the Cadillac in terms of power but manages to fare better than the Acura.

How good is the acceleration of the MDX?

Acceleration from the Naturally Aspirated V6 Motor of the 2020 Acura MDX is brisk and linear for the most part. You do have enough power on tap for overtakes in and around the city. However, you do need to wait a bit for the power to kick in, while on the highway to perform an overtaking maneuver.

The Rivals of the Acura are at Par with it, as far as acceleration goes. All the rivals of the Acura other than the Lexus, match the performance of the Acura and the Lexus falls behind the pack in this respect.

What about the braking performance and handling of the MDX?

In terms of Braking, the MDX is at par with its other rivals in terms of brake feel and modulation. Stopping distances, may not depict the entire story as the 131ft stopping distance for stopping from 60MPH for the Acura, may seem bad but in reality, it is a decent performer. The Brake Pedals feel light in application and so does the impact. Step hard on the brakes and you will feel the progression in them that is followed by an increase in the bite.

The torque-vectoring AWD system is quite impressive. It reduces under-steer and allows this big SUV to move around corners when you really push it. In most situations, the MDX lacks the sportiness like a regular sporty SUV, but it sure works on the handling part. The All-Wheel-Drive is designed for better terrain exploration, which is hard to find in a luxury-oriented SUV of this class. It lacks hill descent control.

2020 Acura MDX SUV Fuel Economy

4.0/10

The Acura MDX manages to be both Frugal and decent on performance, all at the same time. The Standard FWD version of the Acura, manages to deliver a combined MPG figure of 23 and returns 20MPG and 27MPG on the city and on the highway respectively. Switching to the AWD versions will make the MPG figures, go down by 1MPG each and thus reducing the overall driving range by a very small margin. The A-Spec package reduces the MPG figures in the Highway by another 1 MPG, thereby making the overall figures stand at 21MPG as opposed to the 22MPG in the AWD version.

Speaking of the rivals of the Acura, all of them are at par with the MDX when it comes to the Fuel Tank Capacity and overall MPG figures. The Acura and the Lexus are at par with each other and stay at the top, in terms of the same. The Cadillac comes in next and the comparison is rounded-off by the Buick Enclave that delivers the least MPG figure.

2020 Acura MDX SUV Interior

7.5/10

The MDX is spacious for the midsize luxury segment, and though its third row is compact, it's more usable than most of the cars in this league. Clever single-press buttons slide the 2nd row seats for third-row access, but the resulting pass-through for adults can be inaccessible. Otherwise, there's good access to the front- and second-row seats in comparison to others in the segment.

2020 ACURA MDX SUV SEATING AND COMFORT
2020 Acura MDX is spacious for the midsize luxury segment, and though its third row is compact

A highly adjustable driver's seat and a power tilt-and-telescoping steering column are available as standard on all MDX models, so you will be able to find a comfortable position across the cabin. The third row is somewhat meant for kids and perhaps adults of short heights. Still, it's good than the third rows of some other luxury SUVs in the segment. The front seats are spacious in every dimension, but headroom in the second row is limited.

Looking at the other spectrum of SUV's in the segment, the Caddy and the Lexus are the only 2 SUV's in this comparison that allows seating for just 5 passengers. The Buick and Acura have a clear advantage in this respect, as they allow seating for 7. The Buick offers the most space for passengers on the inside and is then followed by the Lexus. The Acura doesn't fall behind by a big margin against these and offers a respectable amount of space for all the passengers.

Creature comforts on offer?

Acura has always heard the people in terms of what they wanted and hence, they have added plenty of features on the inside of the MDX. The Interiors may not feel as premium as some of the German rivals of the MDX but with the kind of features on offer, you sure won't be left complaining about the same.

  • Leather Trimmed Interiors
  • Front 12 Way Power Adjust Seats with Power Lumbar Support
  • Heated and Ventilated Front Seats
  • Heated Rear Outboard Seats
  • 40/40 Split-folding second-row seats
  • Tri-Zone Automatic Climate Control with Humidity Control and GPS Linking
  • Keyless Access with Push Button Start
  • Auto-Dimming Frameless Rearview Mirror
  • Power Windows with Auto-Up/Down, Auto Reverse and Key-Off operation
  • Heated and Leather Wrapped Electronic Tilt/Telescopic Adjust steering wheel
  • Ambient Cabin Lighting and Active Sound Control

How is the Infotainment System like in the Acura?

While we have heaped a lot of praises on the Acura till now, we surely can't say the same about the Infotainment system of the MDX. While Acura is bundling a lot of features in the infotainment system, we sure feel that the integration of the same could have been a lot better. In terms of the looks, the interface feels weak and slow to respond to user inputs. The design of the system feels slightly dated when compared to its rivals. However, we do like the positioning of the buttons to control the infotainment system which has been very well placed, for easy access to the driver and the passenger

  • 8" Touchscreen Infotainment System with Navigation
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto

How good is the Acura MDX's luggage carrying capacity?

The Acura MDX comes with a three row seating configuration and that tends to eat up a lot of the cargo space, when you compare the Acura to its rivals. The MDX offers a cargo volume of 15 cubic feet, which is very less in comparison to all of its rivals. However, look from the perspective of a 3 row SUV and you will find that this will be enough for most of your weekend getaways or daily errands.

The Cadillac XT5, capitalizes on its 5 seat configuration by offering the most cargo space in the comparison. The Buick comes in second in this respect and is followed by the Lexus, that despite being a 5 seater, offers a paltry 18.4 cubic feet of space.

What about the towing capacity of the MDX?

With a towing capacity of 3500lbs, Acura has ensured that you won't have much trouble, ferrying around heavy stuff with you on your way to your weekend getaway. The Engine doesn't feel stressed while towing that weight and the Super Handling AWD setup, allows good traction while having a trailer hitched to the MDX's back.

2020 Acura MDX SUV Exterior

7.0/10

The 2020 Acura MDX enjoys a great amalgamation of elegant yet tough, luxurious yet practical looks. As with other cars from Acura, this flagship SUV got an attractive diamond-pentagon grille, and the Jewel Eye LED headlights are just awesome. Roof rails add more glamour to MDX's personality and provide practicality as well. Hybrid versions of MDX look similar to the standard version. The new, sportier Acura MDX A-Spec gets 20-inch wheels that half-inch wider than the standard model, bolder front fascia, larger-diameter exhaust finishers, and gloss-black accents.

Talking of the Lexus' dimensions, you will find it somewhere in between the Buick Enclave and the Lexus RX. That means, you do have enough space for passengers on the inside while having the ease of maneuverability, courtesy of a relatively smaller footprint on the outside. We do however feel that Acura could have added a bit more ground clearance to the MDX, to add to it's SUV character.

Note-worthy Exterior features?

Being a flagship offering from the Luxury oriented Japanese carmaker, the 2020 Acura MDX, reeks of a plethora of classy features that will sure make you grab one look at the same. Some of the few highlights include

  • Jewel Eye Headlights with Auto On/Off Function
  • 20" Alloy Wheels
  • Powered Moon Roof
  • Remote Linked Power Operated Tail Gate
  • Rain-Sensing Windshield Wipers
  • LED Puddle Lights, Fog Lights, Taillights and Puddle Lights

2020 Acura MDX SUV Safety

9.8/10

The 2019 MDX scored an overall crash test rating of five out of five stars from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and considering this, we expect the 2020 model to follow the same track record. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety rewarded the MDX the highest rating of Good in its five crash tests.

2020 Acura MDX SUV Competition

Acura MDX VS Cadillac XT5

The Cadillac XT5 offers everything, what an American expects from it. It's spacious on the Inside, is fabulous to look at and offers ton loads of features on the inside. However, the Cadillac offers seating for only 5 people and isn't exactly as well build as the Acura. The Cadillac feels luxurious on the inside but a close observation of the same and you will find inconsistencies, all around the cabin. The Acura offers tremendous value in terms of daily driving abilities and fetches a far better resale value than the Caddy as well. If features is what you are all about, the Caddy will suit your bill well but if you want to go with a sensible package, should opt for the Acura.

Acura MDX VS Lexus RX 350

The Lexus is the closest to the Acura in terms of dynamics, looks and design. There isn't much differentiation among the 2 in terms of pricing and performance and are identical there as well. However, while the Lexus seats only 5 people, the Acura boasts of seating for 7. The Lexus feels a tad more premium on the inside and is sure to turn heads with its looks. You can't go wrong while choosing one of these 2 SUV's but if you had a higher focus on practicality, the Acura would be the best choice for you then.
