2005 Acura MDX
Pros & Cons
- + Room for seven passengers or serious amounts of cargo, gutsy V6 engine, well-balanced suspension, top-rated crash test scores.
- – Limited off-road capability, below-average tow rating, ho-hum interior design and materials.
This year the MDX receives standard XM Satellite Radio, a Bluetooth hands-free cell phone interface on Touring models, a larger fuel tank and an enhanced stability control system. The optional rear entertainment system now includes an in-dash six-disc CD changer, and the navigation system has an enhanced database. MDXs with navigation also include the OnStar communications system.
A somewhat bland but otherwise utterly capable and perfectly useful crossover SUV.
