Overview Information

Acura finally joins the bandwagon with its very own SUV. Based on the Odyssey minivan, the 3.5L 240-bhp MDX should be priced in the $35K region.

Official Word:

Before MDX, if you wanted an SUV with a flexible interior capable of carrying seven passengers, you could expect to drive a gas-guzzling monster truck. If it was European handling and performance you desired, a lofty price bought you limited space and utility. The MDX is the first luxury SUV to delviver the sport and the utility consumers desire in one thoroughly refined vehicle. -- Tom Elliot, executive vice president, Amercan Honda.
