The 2014 Acura MDX is a luxury SUV that strikes a near-perfect balance between performance and fuel economy. While the premium vehicles of the day stay a bit shy in terms of practicality and are more show vehicles, the MDX comes with little to no compromises. The 2014 model features a complete redesign and is offered in four different configurations. Priced at $42,290 for the base trim, the car features leather upholstery as standard which makes even the base trim apt for being chauffeured around town to the business meetings.
Thus, the MDX is a good example of what a practical luxury crossover SUV can be. The 2014 MDX’s interior screams luxury all over and is practical at the same time. It is powered by the same old 3.5L V6 engine that is paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The vehicle sure is compromised in terms of its off-roading capabilities but that is something you can live with, as the list of good things is much bigger than the list of cons. The 2014 Acura MDX rivals the likes of 2014 Buick Enclave, 2014 Infiniti QX60, and 2014 Lincoln MKT.
