2020 Acura MDX

2020 Acura MDX

The MDX is one of those models that offer plenty of value for the money. The current generation has been on the market for almost six years, which means that a redesign is near. However, latest reports suggest that the 2020 Acura MDX will carry on in the same way.

This refers to base versions. On the other side, some reports suggest a new, hi-performance version in the offer, under the famous Type S badge. At this point, we are still waiting for the official confirmation. In any case, the new model should arrive sometime late in the year.

Pros:

  • Lots of tech features
  • Good handling
  • Efficient powertrain
  • Spacious cabin

Cons:

  • Most rivals feel more opulent on the inside
  • Strong competition

Exterior

2020 Acura MDX review

When it comes to the exterior design, the current version marches for about two years. The current generation received a facelift a couple of years ago and we saw a fine portion of interesting changes for this occasion.

Of course, most of the changes came at the front, where the MDX adopted the brand’s newest design language, characterized by a large pentagon grille. Of course, new lighting groups came, as well as new front bumpers and several more things. In any case, the 2020 Acura MDX will stick to this design philosophy and the best we can get is a couple of new color options.

Interior

The interior design is probably the weakest point of this very good premium crossovers. It is rather practical and functional than luxurious. The overall quality is great, but most rivals simply feel more opulent on the inside.

On the other side, this crossover is based on Honda Pilot, so you can count on a pretty spacious and functional cabin. Depending on the configuration, seating capacity is either for six or seven people. All three rows are spacious and comfortable. Also, the list of standard features is pretty long.

This especially refers to tech goodies, as you can count on dual-screen infotainment system six USB ports, Bluetooth, an eight-speaker audio system, satellite radio, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto etc.

Engines

This is the area where we can see some interesting novelties. It looks like the Japanese manufacturer is preparing Type S version of this crossover. Allegedly, this version of new 2020 Acura MDX is about to come with the company’s new V6 engine, though we don’t know many details at this point.

On the other side, base models will continue with a familiar 3.5-liter unit that delivers around 290 horsepower. Of course, there is a hybrid version in the offer as well, which delivers a total amount of 321 hp.
