Generation Overview

The luxury midsize crossover Acura MDX made its first bow to the American automotive market in model year 2001. The 2013 Acura MDX was the last model year for the second generation. One of the first midsize crossovers to offer a third row of seating, the beefy family vehicle has room for up to seven or a cavernous cargo capacity of 83.5 cubic feet. The 3.7L 24-valve V6 engine cranks out 300 hp, enough muscle to work your way through traffic or across the country without breaking a sweat. Its six-speed automatic transmission comes standard with paddle shifters while 18-inch aluminum wheels catch all the attention when you roll up on your kid's soccer game. 

A power liftgate is just a sample of the premium features included on every equipment level. The smart key stores two driver memory settings that automatically positions the steering wheel, side mirrors, seat, and climate controls when it unlocks the doors. The rearview mirror also includes the backup camera display, so you don't have to look for an image down on the console. 

Instead of trims, the 2013 Acura MDX uses package names that add amenities to the previous level. The Standard MDX is nicely equipped with leather upholstery, heated power front seats, tri-zone automatic climate control, and a power moonroof. Fog lights and an eight-speaker surround sound system round out the features. The Technology Package elevates your ride using navigation, real-time weather and traffic, voice interface for the infotainment system, and premium leather surfaces.2 The Advance Package delivers a sport-tuned suspension with active damping, driver assist technology, ventilated front seats, and 19-inch alloy wheels. There is also an Entertainment Package that could be added to the Technology or Advance and brings a rear DVD system, heated second-row seats, and a 115-volt outlet.

very reliable. loving every bit

Acura and Hondas have a great reputation. I’m proud to have achieved my goal in purchasing one.


  • Ride and Handling: perfect in every way
  • Reliability: no complaints
  • Cargo Space: need a little more bc of 5 kids but less to clean


  • Fuel Economy: can get expensive bc of premium
  • Weather Versatility:

- Jessica Brooks, 2013 Acura MDX

Powerful SUV on the highways

2013 MDX is a powerful engine SUV, built for the open highway in any weather


  • Ride and Handling: Comfort mode for highways


  • Fuel Economy: AWD , so the fuel economy is not great, and the price of Gas is rising

- bill Dreyer, 2013 Acura MDX

Plenty of room and lots of power.

Car does well in inclement weather. It has plenty of power and lots of room.


  • Power: 300 horse power is great for safely merging onto the highway.
  • Weather Versatility: In the winter we have to drive to the top of a steep icy hill to get home. This car’s 4 wheel drive works well.
  • Seat Comfort: The heated seats are very comfortable.


  • Fuel Economy: This car is a bit of a gas hog. Also, it requires premium 92 octane fuel so you’ll spend even more on special fuel.
  • Technology and Entertainment: It lacks technologically by today’s standards. For example, the car has a back up camera but the monitor is a tiny 2 inches contained within the rear view mirror which can be difficult to see. Also, the car has Bluetooth but only for hands free telephone calls and not for streaming music from your phone.
  • Cost to Maintain: I haven’t had to maintain anything so I don’t really know the cost to maintain. However, your form won’t allow me to leave this blank so there you go.
