The 2012 Acura MDX has three rows of seating and a rather boxy exterior that promises a lot of utility. And even though the MDX is a luxury vehicle, it's quite the cargo workhorse for weekend projects.
There are three rows of seating in the 2012 MDX, and adults will find all-day comfort in any of the perches in the front two rows. The front seats especially offer great bolstering and support. As for the third row, it's child-sized, as are most benches in this class, but the second-row seat tilts and slides forward to expand access to the back.
Though the instrument panel of the 2012 MDX is a bit too busy with all the buttons, lights, and controls, the cabin is crafted from high-quality materials. Acura has tinted the woodgrain trim a medium shade of brown, which warms up the cabin a bit from its former grey drabness. Fit and finish is excellent, typical for Acura, and the MDX is very quiet, whether on rough surfaces or in highway cruising.
