Car and Driver describes the new MDX Acura as "a little sleeker and a little less boxy without excessive compromise of interior," which has "a sporty ambience."
Edmunds.com says the MDX "lacked a little in terms of personality and prestige." Other adjectives used for this SUV were "athletic," "hunkered down," and "aggressive."
Forbes Auto calls it "bolder and richer-looking" with "chiseled lines."
The Auto Channel expressed great admiration for its "bold lines and well-defined fenders," which take their inspiration from "car, not truck styling cues." Regarding the five-sided, medieval-looking grille, this source was quick to point out that it has been a virtual corporate logo for the past several years. Chances are, if you really dislike it, there are aftermarket customizations available.
