Lots of improvements for 2010; lots of power with good handling; tons of available technology
The MDX got quite a makeover for 2010, including a revamped, love-it-or-hate-it V-shaped grille that brings the SUV in line with the rest of Acura's design language. Headlights and exhaust pipes got a more subtle treatment, while the interior retains the same layout with upgraded materials and technology. The biggest difference for 2010 is in the drivetrain, where the MDX is the first Acura to receive Honda's 6-speed automatic transmission, which in this case is mated to a new 3.7L V6. The combination is quick and smooth, and the extra gear at the top offers a one mile per gallon lift to the gas mileage over 2009.
