The clean, straightforward design of the 2018 Acura MDX is let down only by the turbo model’s excessive add-ons.
2018 Acura MDX Exterior and Interior Review
The 2018 Acura MDX SUV is in its last year before a redesign, but thankfully not a rethink. It’s spacious, quiet, comfortable, and capable, mostly thanks to its standard all-wheel-drive system and chunky flat-4 enging. The 2018 Acura MDX offers a pleasantly high driving position, lots of front elbow room, and a dashboard far enough away to make the interior feel spacious. The upright shape and low window line make the interior airy and light and give excellent outward visibility.
2018 Acura MDX First Drive, Price, Performance and Review
Noise suppression is good, with more sound deadening added last year, as well as an acoustic windshield, thicker window glass, and better door seals. This helps address a chronic 2018 Acura MDX First Drive weak point and makes the car much more pleasant for longer trips.
2018 Acura MDX Redesign
Top safety scores and continual updates to safety features put the 2018 Acura MDX among the safest cars in its class. All 2018 Acura MDX include a rearview camera as standard equipment. This year, all Limited and Touring models now come with blind-spot monitors and rear cross-traffic alerts. Those features are also added to Premium models ordered with Subaru’s EyeSight system.
The best value in 2018 Acura MDX is a base model with manual gearbox, but it’s still decently priced after adding fancy audio, leather, and a moonroof.
