2012 Acura MDX Fuel Economy

6.0
Fuel Economy

The 2012 Acura MDX has a single powertrain, and at an EPA-rated 16 mpg city, 21 highway, it's not particularly fuel-efficient.

There are a number of vehicles in the MDX's class that manage a mile or two better per gallon, which can add up fast over the course of a year. The Lincoln MKT manages 17/22 mpg, for instance, and for truly impressive fuel economy,the Lexus RX 450h gets up to 32/28.

The 2012 Acura MDX's fuel economy ratings won't be very attractive to green-minded shoppers.

One other point of note is that the MDX requires more expensive premium fuel.
