I would say that this car is a great mix of sporty performance and economical practicality. The things I like most about this car are its quick handling, high-revving engine, huge storage space, great gas mileage (my best was 35mpg on a particular highway trip but I see 25-27mpg around town), and quality interior materials. The interior and exterior styling are excellent and the driving experience is superb.
My biggest complaint is that the engine doesn't deliver much power down low, so having some fun requires exploring the 6k-8k rpm range which makes a great sound but may draw unwanted attention. Also, the suspension is fairly stiff which lends to its good handling characteristics, but may be uncomfortable for some drivers. The back seats offer very little head room, so you should plan to use them sparingly. Don't expect to win many races either- the car is quick, but no sports car.

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.
If you’re conducting used car research to find a deal on pre-owned luxury vehicles, it only makes sense to learn about the Acura TL—a car with touring luxury actually built into its name. The Acura TL is a mid-sized luxury car that succeeded the Acura Vigor and was produced between 1996 and 2014. While the first-generation Acura TL (1996 to 1998) was manufactured in Japan, production soon shifted to the Honda plant in Marysville, Ohio.
