If you absolutely positively won’t drive a mini-van

Acura’s MDX is their top-of-the-line 7-passenger all-wheel-drive people-mover.

And Acura has done a pretty good job of engineering a vehicle that’ll still fit into your garage…and carry 7 passengers…and a fair amount of their stuff….in luxury.

All MDX’s come with all-wheel-drive and are powered by a 3.7 liter, 300 HP 6-cylinder routed thru a 6-speed automatic that’s rated at 16 city and 21 mpg hwy.

We got right at 20 in the typical Atlanta commute.

The MDX starts at $44,175 including destination fees, and includes driver recognition memory, 10-way heated power drivers’ seat, moonroof, power tailgate and heated power mirrors.

A tech package brings nav with voice recognition, surround-sound, real-time traffic and weather, hard-disc drive and more.

An “Advance” Package adds perforated, ventilated leather seating, blind-spot info, collision-mitigation braking, adaptive speed control, Xenon lights and 19” alloys.

Add the Entertainment Package and get motorized rear-seat DVDs and heated second-row seats.

Our test MDX had all of the above, and totaled $55,700.

The MDX has been on the market for a few years now, and Acura has obviously learned how to build ‘em.  The MDX comes with high-rated 4 and 5 (top) star ratings for frontal crash, side impact and rollover.   Impressive figures.

So if you just absolutely won’t be seen dead in a mini-van, Acura’s MDX will get you and up to six passengers and a bit of your stuff down the road rather safely…with 20 MPG….and a little bit of “swag”.

Acura will be updating the MDX for 2014….so right now just might be a perfect time to score a “deal” on a ’13!IMGP9218IMGP9219IMGP9220IMGP9221IMGP9220 IMGP9223IMGP9222
