2022 Acura MDX Review // Mid-size SUV Masterpiece!!




This is a Motormouth couple car review of the 2022 Acura MDX. The all-new Acura MDX is longer, lower and wider than the last model with a vastly improved suspension and handling thanks to a double wishbone front suspension and independent rear suspension. Acura improved the rigidity of this all-new 2022 MDX to handle the increased power from the Type S MDX, which will arrive later this year. The base Acura MDX is a 7-passenger 3-row SUV with a 3.5L V6 engine and a new 10-speed automatic transmission. The new transmission gets the most out of the 290hp 3.5L V6 and with the standard drive modes, this MDX can be very smooth and refined or sporty with the touch of a button. The design of this latest 2022 Acura MDX is more refined and upscale, with four trim including the sportier looking MDX A Spec trim. The upcoming Type S MDX will have a 3.0L twin-turbocharged engine with 355hp. The new MDX sits on a 2.8 inch longer wheelbase and a stance that is 1.4 inches wider. The biggest change is the dash to axle ratio which has been extended by 4 inches lengthens the hood line. The base model comes nicely equipped with a 12.3-inch display screen with true touchpad interface, 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, Heated front seats, Wireless Apple Carplay & Android Auto, Wireless smartphone charging, Driver seat memory, Heated power adjusting side mirrors, LED headlights and taillights, Panoramic moonroof, Power tailgate and 19-inch wheels. This new Acura MDX is a game changer, with a ride that rivals some German brands, the build quality of a Japanese brand and the value of the Korean brands. The Acura MDX is the best selling three-row luxury SUV and for good reason.

    IMO, they should tune the Type S for 400BHP/400ftlbs with 91 AKI fuel, and 375/360 with 87 AKI fuel.

    I gave up on the MDX after owning a couple over the years because it's always the last Acura/Honda model to get the cool tech/infotainment system.

    I had an RDX and wanted to graduate to an MDX, but my wife said another make. So, we were looking at Audi, BMW, Mercedez and finally ended with a Lexus RX. After buying Lexus, my wife says she would have preferred an MDX. I am like, "really, you serious now..." I am always for Honda Engineering. People never understand. All other brands offer features for an extra cost. With Honda all the features are included in the baseline trim.

    The shifter is just fine. Had my Pearl Red MDX 2022 now for a little over two months. Plenty of power in the big 3.5 six, especially combined with the fantastic transmission, so smooth! Great total redesign and lots of room too. Love the ride, a lot like the BMW X5, but sure Acura/Honda has the best quality control and proven reliability for years of trouble free driving, not like most German vehicles. They did not mention that all the safety features come standard on the MDX, including adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring and lane assist, etc. It is loaded and will be a 5 star safety pick like last year, but even better with those front lights. The tires and breaks are huge and it stops the heavy 4,500 pound big boy in the most impressive time of anything I drove in the luxury class. I do not feel a need for the new 355 house power turbo, but many just want even more power, but my wife and I are most impressed with the engine and transmission gusto! We love the hidden truck holding area for groceries, etc. Perfect! The big computer info screens are just perfect too. Acura spent a lot of time thinking about what would make the baseball moms happy too, so many will buy this seven seater over many mini-vans and be glad they did. It is selling very fast and keep in mind Honda/Acura sold over a million of the MDX's, more than any other seven passenger luxury SUV, ever! Their owners are most happy and will love this even more!

    My advice as an owner of one: Get a used and loaded 2016+ Volvo XC90 with B&W sound system for $35k (new equivalent is over $80k) and forget about this push-button car. I absolutely love my XC90 T6 R-Design and the optional B&W system is nearly reason alone for me to drive it into the ground.

    I think many people may get a wrong impression: it's a three-row SUV, not a Porsche 911. It's a minivan with a V6 engine and sporty appearance. Yes, it's smooth, yes, it has a decent third-row seating. The price for this comfort is size and heft. And you do feel it in town. It drives like a limo. It's almost the size of a Sienna and almost the same weight. It's not an agile and nimble 2-seater. New 4-cylinder vehicles with less than 10 gears to shift will accelerate faster and stop faster. Take a good test drive before you commit yourself. It's also much more thirsty than the manufacturer claims. Especially if you drive it in town like a small, sporty sedan. It likes premium gas and premium-size parking spots. It's designed for inter-city rather than inner-city use.

    I would be curious how many folks out there has dealt with the Acura Touch Pad (ughhhhh). I tuned down an RDX in June 2019 and took the MDX instead on a lease because of that Touch Pad !!! During the test drive (and I loved the way the RDX drove), dealing with that Touch Pad - turned me Off. Couldn't they have included BOTH , a touch Screen and the Touch Pad.... I would have to get a loaner for a few days to see if I could live with that issue... I can deal with the Push button shifter (have it now on the 2019). I will tell you, it takes getting used too as well.

      But Acura’s new True Touchpad interface, which serves as the primary control for the infotainment console, drew some fire. “After meandering into a desolate area out of range of any cell service, I tried searching for a ramen place nearby,” daily news editor Conner Golden said. “Five minutes later, I couldn’t make sense of the trackpad-based system, which was overly sensitive and then immediately unresponsive. I gave up and drove toward town until I regained service.” Automobilemag ● The system is confusing to use even when the RDX is parked, and it’s very distracting for drivers when the car is moving. For example, they’re forced to look at the screen to execute common audio tasks, and some adjustments are buried deep in submenus. We think it requires too much concentration, multiple steps and extended time with eyes off the road and hand off the wheel. It’s one of the worst systems that we’ve encountered recently. ●Braking performance is strong but the brake pedal has a spongy feel. The suspension quashes most bumps, but we found the ride to be rather firm and choppy. The cabin is quiet, barring a somewhat grainy engine noise. ●We got 22 mpg overall in our tests, which is average for the category, and no better than what we measured with the V6 in the previous-generation RDX. This figure also trails the performance from competitors’ small turbo engines, such as Audi, BMW, and Lexus. ●posting 52 mph through the course. Acura makes a big deal about its Super Handling AWD, which only comes into play when drivers accelerate through a corner. ●Most bumps are absorbed well, but the RDX has a jittery feel over rougher roads and on long drives. ●Most of the time the cabin is very quiet, but a coarse engine hum punches through under acceleration. It’s acceptable when driving aggressively, but annoying in everyday driving ●The brake pedal feels as if it isn’t responding at first, and it requires a bit of effort, which can make the driver feel less-than-confident. ●Although it’s nicely finished, the materials and build quality don’t quite match the best SUVs in this class. For example, the storage cubbies aren’t lined, there were some uneven panel gaps on the center console, and one of the dash vents didn’t move as freely as the others. Finally, there are plenty of soft-touch surfaces throughout the cabin, but the material on the upper dash and window sill is quite thin. ●The RDX’s controls are among the worst we’ve experienced. There is a steep learning curve to use the infotainment system, but it is still distracting and confusing to execute common audio functions even after drivers have some familiarity. The system is slow to load after the initial start up. Consumer Reports

What if I say 267ft/lb at 1800 rpm or 267 ft/lbs at 3400 rpm see the difference? Those two cars are going to be totally different with the same numbers. The same goes for power. We spend 80% of our lives driving under 3500 rpm. See my point? Keep up the good work.

    The Acura TLX Type S V6 motor is, from what I've read, a twin scroll single turbo. Do you think the MDX Type S version of the V6 will have two turbos, or will it be like the TLX Type S V6? I don't have any issues if it is a single turbo, and someone made the remark that the twin scroll single turbo is "more efficient" than two turbos (I'm not sure what that means.) Thanks and great review as usual!

    Very good review. I live in Windsor, Ontario and purchased a 2022 MDX Elite from the nearest dealership in London, Ontario. I was wondering if you tried the navigation system. I find it works well for short routes and is easy to use but when I try to start a route for a longer distance say 300 + km it is very slow to calculate and longer routes it just messages "failure to calculate". I have contacted the dealer in London, Ontario where I purchased it but just wondering if anyone else is experiencing this issue?

      @Oprah Kenyon The main reason is the Aspec does not come with Heads Up Display (HUD). The HUD is great when you are using any of your APS like navigation that provides turns so you don't have to take your eyes off the road. Also the HUD will give you your speed and the speed limit sign with posted speed. The Aspec is very nice and I do like the trim and rims on it.

    That Track Pad and Push Button shifter would be a deal breaker for me. That was the main reason plus the turbo that I bought a 2018 RDX than a 2019. I am not sure about the 10 speed. The maintenance of the 9 and 10 speed is sky high ($600 vs $229 (6 speed)to change fluid). You did not mention the SH-AWD which is much better than the competitors. Of course the low price would beat them all. I am just waiting for them to make the MDX like the Passport (2 seats and shorter). NOTE: I am an old timer and hated all the black features.

      Today's modern AWD systems GKN used by Land Rover and General Motors provide the same traction with TVD but are much more efficent than the Acura system. It is just that the SH-AWD is made out of glass with 30,000 mile differential fluid changes at $100 a pop. Most others do not need servicing. The verdict is not in on Honda/Acura V6 transmissions even today. Might want to lease until then.

    They went the same lay-out as the RDX with the giant mode selector and push button shifter and I agree that I don't think it needed to do this. Just put a short shifter like Audi does.

    I'm a 2020 RDX owner ... The touchpad is always a point of complaint in reviews but it's not fair criticism. You need about a day to get used to it and then it works extremely well. It doesn't work like a laptop touchpad (where you move a cursor) like others. Those require a lot more attention. It's a direct ration to the screen, so if you want the button in the bottom left, you put your finger in the bottom left. It's really easy and takes vastly less concentration once you're used to it than a cursor, or even a touch screen, which both take an extra dimension of coordination. However, Apple CarPlay is awful on this. That's not really Acura's fault, but CarPlay DOES work like a laptop cursor, so in other words differently than the main system. I try to avoid using CarPlay input and just ask Siri for most things. Touchscreens are irresponsible and I can't believe how far we have gone in that direction, or that auto journalists are pushing that. People should be comfortable with a 1-2 day learning curve to use a dial or a better input method. Touch screens are death. As a runner, I've had 2 near death experiences where I could clearly see a driver coming toward me unaware while poking a touch screen on the dash of their Audi... Yes, both were Audis... And the shift buttons? Really?

      But Acura’s new True Touchpad interface, which serves as the primary control for the infotainment console, drew some fire. “After meandering into a desolate area out of range of any cell service, I tried searching for a ramen place nearby,” daily news editor Conner Golden said. “Five minutes later, I couldn’t make sense of the trackpad-based system, which was overly sensitive and then immediately unresponsive. I gave up and drove toward town until I regained service.” Automobilemag

    Great review. I'm 73 years old and I have to tell you the shift buttons are so easy to use and so is the track pad. The track pad is so accurate and intuitive with great response. You can type out a word as fast as you like and if you make a mistake you swipe back to delete a letter. It takes about one day to practice and I love it over the 2017 RDX which I traded in for the 2022 MDX Platinum Elite). You are going to love the Heads Up Display (especially for the speed limit which you can change from Kilometers to Miles display and the navigation and other Apps which you can scroll through). This is one great vehicle with style and class way above anything else within in 20K of its price range .

    Overall, the new generation Acura MDX is good. Both the exterior and interior. For the exterior nice aggressive stance. Nice slim/sleek headlights and taillights. Good the exhaust tips are exposed as well. For the interior nice second row bench/captain chairs combo. Very clever. From a distance it almost looks like the Mazda CX-9. However, within range you'll automatically discern the two vehicles. The Genesis GV80 has better performance numbers, but that's where the fun stops with that vehicle. The Acura MDX destroys it in third row seating accommodation, cargo space and overall appearance. Also, the MDX is cheaper in price. At the 13:53 and 14:19 time marks the Lexus RX 350 with the third row seating is not the "RXL" like what was mentioned twice in this video. It's actually the RX 350L. That's the full description of it. As for the MDX they should've made it with a rotary dial shifter. That would've added additional luxury feel to it. They also should've made the infotainment screen both track pad use and touch screen. More flexibility for that combo. Other than those two blemishes, this new generation MDX has more to offer than the competition.

      The Buick Enclave makes 310hp, is biggest in the segment, and can be discounted in top Avenir trim in the US$40's. It is also ranked tops in the segment and also recommended by Consumer Reports. The 2022 MDX is not as are none of the Acura's models today recommended by CR.

    The push button gear shift is also a great safety feature. I have a 2019 MDX A-spec with push button shifter and if you open the drivers door when your seat belt is un-buckled, and the car is in any gear (forward or reverse), it will automatically shift to park! This way you can't run yourself over, I know that sounds unlikely but people have been killed like that.

    So I have listened to this review and many others! I was so impressed by the reviews we went and drove a 2022 Acura MDX last week! I can honestly say I was as disappointed as I have ever been in my 58 years of driving in this vehicle! The ride was uneven on good roads and terrible on side roads! The 10 speed transmission was disappointing as its shits were constant! The instrument will require a large learning curve! The interior of the car was very nice and it did have leather seats! We are Lexus, Toyota and Mercedes people! I did own an Accord, Civic and Fit and we likes all those cars especially the Fit and Accord! We did not like and would not buy the MDX!

The removable 2nd row seat - I will never use it. One big omission is no massage seats on the top trim. Come on Acura, massage seats are awesome for long drives! They charge so much for the Advance package in the US. These should be on the top trim. I saw one on the road last weekend and it looks much bigger than the previous generation.

    I was going to give you thumbs down for saying in the opening -" This may be the best suv I've driven ..." since I thought that was too much to say given how many nice cars you have actually driven. However, when Andrea pointed out that it has a new transmission gear I let it pass since I didn't know that.This Acura only offers heated steering wheel on higher trim which is ridiculous for this price range.Secondly, there is no excuse for not having touch screen and the built in navigation is not good. This review was really good as I'm used to watching one man review and here it is the two of you contributing harmoniously , very nice.

    The new MDX is, IMHO, by far the best value in the segment- it's beautifully designed, and the cherry on top is Honda reliability. Now, if only they would put a real shifter in the thing. I don't understand why automakers are getting rid of them, but they're wrong in their choice to do so. #savetheshifters
