NAIAS 2013: New Acura MDX Looks Like Old Acura MDX
January 15th, 2013 10:57 AM Share
Acura will replace their long-in-the-tooth MDX with a new model that looks a lot like the current MDX and even uses a similar 3.5L V6. The new model should look very similar to this concept. As it underwhelming as it seems, Honda did this with the CR-V and it’s arguably the best small crossover out there. The new RDX, despite criticisms relating to its lack of turbochargers, is a vastly improved car. I’m willing to give them the benefit of the doubt on this one.

Can you really not see the difference between this generation of CR-V and the last? I'm not sure what to say.
The MDX is a big seller for Acura so I didn't expect them to do anything revolutionary - just 100s of minor changes and styling it so it looks like everything else they sell.
Does it still have the crappy fit and finish of the prior generation? TTAC noted a panel-fit problem in its 2010 review that I observed in a 2012 MY car that had fewer than 10 miles on it (i.e. not a demo or the standard tester). http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/2010/06/review-2010-acura-mdx/#comment-1954952
Those headlights are reason enough to buy it. Most important feature on a luxury vehicle in my opinion is the day time running lights. I wouldn't even consider a vehicle over 40,000$ that didn't have some sort of wicked unique headlight arrangement.
