2020 Acura MDX

2020 MDX Photos
Aimed at family-minded buyers, the 2020 Acura MDX crossover has three rows of seats for up to seven adults. Related to Honda's Pilot, the luxury mid-size MDX performs its transport duties effectively, while conveying a premium feel.

Little has changed for the 2020 model year, except for the introduction of a handcrafted, limited-production PMC Edition, named for Acura's Performance Manufacturing Center. Only 300 will be available for U.S. sale.

In addition to a base trim, the MDX is available with a choice of option packages-Advance, Technology, and A-Spec. Each dresses up the cabin, but does not affect performance. Acura also offers a more powerful Sport Hybrid, whose foremost benefit is fuel efficiency.

Each regular MDX taps a 3.5-liter V-6 that develops 290 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque, sent to a 9-speed automatic transmission. Front-drive is standard on most versions, while all-wheel drive costs $2,000 more.

In the MDX Sport Hybrid, a 257-hp, 3.0-liter V-6 couples with three electric motors, producing 321 combined horsepower. Sport Hybrid models use a dual-clutch 7-speed automatic.

All-wheel drive in the Sport Hybrid, with electric motors in the rear, is fundamentally different from the regular mechanically-based system. Both deliver seamless all-weather traction, though.

Federal and independent testers have given the MDX impressive crash-test scores. The NHTSA rated the 2020 MDX at five stars overall, with five stars for both frontal and side-impact collisions. Only rollover prevention (a calculated figure) warranted a four-star rating.

The IIHS has named MDX a Top Safety Pick, achieving “Good” scores in each crash-test performed. Standard automatic emergency braking helped it earn a 'Superior'? rating for crash prevention. Active-safety features also include lane control, adaptive cruise control, and forward collision warning. Standard adaptive LED headlights are deemed “Acceptable.”.
