Very nice with some nasty flaws

by Happy Camper from Dallas, Tx on Fri Oct 13 2017

The car I’ve always wanted that turned out not so good. Smooth quiet well behaved drive. Long trip in an older MDX connived me this would be the most comfortable car ever. Not so much. Extra firm tight seats are made for a great ride through the mountains however if you plan hours behind the wheel this might not be for you. The range of seat adjustment doesn’t work well for 6 ft seasoned driver. Another major disappointment is in th infotainment package. Two displays are unneeded and confusing especially if you consider the instrument panel as a third. The user interface is really a mess of extra steps to achieve adjustments. The technology is amazingly slow for being dubbed “Advanced Technolgy” The Honda Pilot and Odyssey are way ahead with a single display and Apple Car Play. Honda link and other technology becomes another confusing mess of logging and passwords. Been in the game too long to have premium auto with this level of issues. A very unsettling mess for a car with this legendary brand.

Favorite vehicle

by Howard from Peoria, IL on Wed Sep 06 2017

We've owned our MDX Hybrid Sport for about a month and are totally in love with it! Great comfort and performance AND very good gas mileage for a vehicle of this size. It has very good pick up, is quiet at all speeds, looks good & handles well. We're still adapting to all of the controls and functions, but all seems manageable for a couple of 70+ year olds. All in all, we are happy owners.

Fun, fun, fun

by Newbie Acura Fan from Woodstock, Il on Wed Apr 18 2018

Have the MDX sport hybrid with the Advance package. So fun to drive. Has great acceleration and handling. The dynamic modes available makes it that much more fun to use. Is the technology dated? A bit but it isn't a deal breaker. I think of it like using Android, use the menu subsection and it all comes together. Personally, I like having 2 screens. I just keep the maps on the top screen. Is it a true 3 row SUV? No, but you can squeeze folks in for a short ride from airport. I keep the 3rd row down and have so much cargo space. The biggest draw of this SUV is the hybrid moniker. It has moxie. The hybrid is a stealth performer and again, so much fun to drive.

The 11th MDX we have owned - Our 1st Hybrid

by 10MDX from KCMO on Mon May 21 2018

Our family has 4 MDXs. The Hybrid is Fun to drive - but different than previous gas-only MDXs. The car looks just like our other MDX, but feels different as you drive it. Actually getting about 28MPG. Safety features are the best!

Our Take on the 2017 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid

The verdict:

The 2017 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid is more sport SUV than hybrid SUV, but it's not without its quirks.

Versus the competition:

The MDX Sport Hybrid isn’t just about boosting fuel economy, which sets it apart from many hybrid SUV competitors.

Acura's 2017 MDX Sport Hybrid is packed with enough technology to make a techie tingle all over at the prospect of explaining its complicated innards to guests at a backyard barbecue. Three electric motors, electronic torque vectoring, a dual-clutch automatic transmission and electro-servo braking are enough to bore the pants off the neighbors, who are just there for the burgers and beer.

But if you're into this kind of stuff, it's pretty cool. The technology packed under the MDX Sport Hybrid is not your typical hybrid technology geared toward increasing fuel economy. Rather, it's designed to provide a new kind of driving experience, with a single electric motor up front attached... Read More
