The MDX's cabin is a high-tech parent's dream

[The Technology package's] audio system delivers amazing six-channel Surround Sound via DVD-audio disc
Kelley Blue Book



With a base price of more than $43,000, the 2011 Acura MDX makes a point of piling on the standard luxury features.

Every MDX comes with leather upholstery; power windows, locks and mirrors; heated power front seats; a rearview camera viewed in the rearview mirror; a three-zone automatic climate control system with humidity control and air filtration; a power tailgate; 18-inch wheels; a six-disc in-dash changer and XM Satellite Radio; a auxiliary audio jack; steering-wheel audio and phone controls; and a Bluetooth hands-free calling interface. You’ll be dumbfounded by the controls at first—and if you buy a base MDX, you won’t be offered a USB port or stereo Bluetooth streaming at all, odd omissions in this price class.

The Technology package is one we'd highly recommend. Acura bundles some features we'd prefer to order one by one into expensive packages, but this bundle has a lot of the features we'd opt for (which some would say, should be standard in a vehicle priced so high). The Technology package adds on a well-conceived navigation system; a triple-view rearview camera; a 410-watt premium audio system with hard-drive media storage; and a USB port for your media player to connect to the car's head unit.

The Advance package is strictly for those buyers who aren't annoyed by lots of bleeps and buzzes the MDX will emit, as a safety warning. This bundle adds on ventilated front seats; the adaptive suspension; and a host of safety pieces, like blind-spot monitors, adaptive cruise control, and brakes that apply themselves if the vehicle senses an accident is imminent.

Families might want to check out the Entertainment package, which offers a rear-seat DVD system with big LCD screens and a 115-volt outlet. Opt for all of the packages and the price of the MDX soars to more than $55,000.


Conclusion

The 2011 Acura MDX piles on standard equipment, but the few options you'll want are bundled into expensive packages.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
