2011 Acura MDX Advance and Entertainment Package SUV

2011 Acura MDX Review

(4 Stars)  Serious player in polarizing style

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
The Acura MDX is one powerhouse of a vehicle, the 2011 model of this car is actually one of the top cars in Acura's lineup. Many think that with the full feature set and high end performance, this should be the flag ship model from Acura. However, currently the Acura RL sedan is the top of the line from this company. The SUV market has been booming over the past several years despite the rise in gas prices and the economic downturn. These vehicles are not only a status symbol, but they also offer some powerful and functional options that no other body style can compete with. The MDX is said to drive much more like a car than some other SUVs, this is one reason that this luxury SUV has become a consumer favorite.

This efficient little SUV offers a totally revised power train to give it even more towing performance and off-road durability. This vehicle utilizes Acura's SH-AWD technology which adds some high tech power distribution controls to the standard all wheel drive system. With the MDX drivers will be ready for suburban life or dirt trails in the outback.
