I previously owned a 1999 Acura 3.2TL and needed a larger vehicle in order to transport my 2 large dogs. I was very pleased with the performance of my TL and decided to stay within the Acura family of cars. I looked at both the RDX and the MDX and although both vehicles had the comfort and quality aspects I was looking for, I ultimately decided to go with the MDX due to its size and storage capacity. And I must say, I love my MDX. It has all of the luxuries I wanted (navigation, Bluetooth, heated leather seats) and there is enough room for me to fit my 2 greyhounds in the back and still have room for a few passengers. I will continue to buy Acura products so long as they continue to make them as well as they do.
The Acura MDX, which entered the market in 2001, was designed to address the need for a high-performance people-mover with an abundance of luxury features. Although the MDX replaced Acura’s SLX, its build was actually based on the popular Honda Pilot. In true Acura style, this newly-developed SUV was infused with the highest-quality comfort and performance features available.
There are an endless amount of cars, crossovers, and trucks in the used vehicle market—and for families seeking a combination of utility and style, few vehicles address these needs better than the used Acura MDX and used Jeep Grand Cherokee. They’re among our top 10 SUVs of 2016, and both are equipped with all the fixings that make for a comfortable drive on the road. They can both be easily loaded up with plenty of cargo, and they’re both available with all-wheel or four-wheel drive.
When the best features of both SUVs and wagons were incorporated into a single vehicle — the crossover — the automobile industry was revolutionized. Crossovers have the ample storage space and off-road capability of SUVs, plus the added practicality and drivability of a wagon. What’s not to love about a crossover?
Vehicles with third-row seating have plenty of features for nearly every type of driver. For families that need a great family-friendly vehicle, SUVs, crossovers, and minivans with third-row seats give passengers roomy interiors and still have enough power to haul plenty of vacation equipment or moving supplies.
