2015 Acura MDX – A top choice for a three-row luxury SUV

''The 2015 Acura MDX is not an SUV one should simply push aside. In fact, setting aside the time to test this vehicle will be well worth your time.''

Not only is the 2015 Acura MDX an attractive-looking SUV, the three-row luxury vehicle is also incredibly comfortable, both in terms of seating and the driving experience. Refined, quick, with good fuel economy ratings, excellent crash test safety scores, and lots of features to consider, the MDX is a vehicle that must be tested. 

The 2015 Acura MDX is not an SUV one should simply push aside. In fact, setting aside the time to test this vehicle will be well worth your time. If the 7-passenger MDX intrigues, know that it has a starting price of $49,990 MSRP, and comes in several different models, which includes the base MDX, Navi, Tech, and Elite trims. 

Depending on the model, buyers can enjoy a variety of features, from a heated steering wheel, to the added convenience of AcuraLink, a navigation system with voice recognition, and a premium audio system with surround sound. Rear seat occupants, whether they are adults or children, can also benefit from a base or ultra-wide DVD entertainment system, heated second-row seats, and so on. 

Inside the vehicle, the cabin is stylistically well setup, with silver plated accents that add to the overall sophistication of the vehicle. Owners can also opt for Milano leather and an olive ash trim, the latter of which is available on the MDX Elite package. Drivers can also enjoy elements like a an 8- or 10-way power adjustable seat, driver’s memory seat, ventilated front seats, and tri-zone automatic climate control with an air-filtration system, offered depending on the model. The heated steering wheel is standard for Canadians, a feature that will surely be appreciated during the cold winter months. 

As for versatility, Acura’s one touch walk-in feature is a button that, when pressed, allows the second-row seats to automatically fold and slide forward, providing better access to the third-row. Other elements to test are the four-position recline and extended slide capability feature for second-row seats. If need be, owners can fold down the seats to increase cargo volume. 

In terms of what powers the 2015 Acura MDX, owners will find a 3.5-litre, direct-injection, V6 engine paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. The V6 pushes a total output of 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque, and has a towing capacity of 1,588 kg and 2,268kg (5,000 lbs.) depending on the model. The automaker’s Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system is offered as well. 

Overall, the 2015 MDX is an enjoyable luxury vehicle to drive, as the V6 engine is strong and fuel-efficient (offering a combined city/highway rating of 10.8 L/100km). The MDX feels secure, and due to the AWD system, athletic as well. In addition, there are several driving modes from which to choose from, such as Econ or Sport, due to Acura’s Integrated Dynamic System. 

The 2015 Acura MDX is a top pick for a three-row luxury crossover vehicle. With room for 7-passengers, lots of standard and available features to appreciate, several safety technologies to consider, and a comfortable, spacious and versatile interior, it’s easy to understand why the MDX is so appealing. A strong V6 and AWD should also help to seal the deal.
