2022 Acura MDX SH-AWD Advance Review and Off-Road Trail Test

The 2022 Acura MDX has been completely revised for the new year - is this what the brand needs? We take a look at all the features of this V6-powered crossover, test it on the roads to see how it handles, do a 0-60 test and then take it into the mountains to see how well it deals with the rock trail test.

    I was thoroughly enjoying your review of the MDX until you decided to take it offroad. Why? This vehicle is clearly not designed to go offroad or handle that type of environment. To me, it was a wasted opportunity to truly showcase what the MDX was truly built for. I'm surprised Acura doesn't make a stink about this. Unreal!

      We take every single crossover off-road. That's kind of our thing. Acura was full aware of it when they provided the vehicle for testing. Also, you will note that we had a very long on-road portion that should have addressed any questions about how it drives. Consider the off-road a bonus.

    I test drove the 2022MDX and the 2021 GLE. GLE lacks power, seems smaller, 3rd row option not enough space. MDX better value, 3rd row, more power, more features. Put a deposit down today on 2022 Avanced MDX.

      I’m 6’1”. Though I do use myself for the size comparisons, in the end it really doesn’t matter how I fit. What matters is that this is small for the class - my ability to wedge myself in not withstanding.

    I had 2018 MDX and 2018 RX 350 bought new. For me Lexus feels more comfort when driving on some rough road and more luxurious inside. Talking about sport. They are both not sport cars.

    I don't think I have ever seen you actually compare and rate cars before (and I've seen all your videos). SO, if you are going to say that the GLE is better that the MDX, does that mean that the MDX is the second best SUV in the world? Take a stand and tell me how does it compare? I'm looking seriously and I'm not going to buy a Mercedes for lots of reasons, but I really like the MDX. So help me out. PLEASE.

      We traded our 2008 RDX for the 2022 MDX aspec. We did consider the same thing about premium fuel that we had to use with the turbo 4cyl. So now we can use regular . We only had 160,000 miles but it needed a complete suspension refresh. I think we saved enough money with no payment for 8 extra years past our 5 year loan.

    Ryan, great thorough review. Interesting comment about the suspension dampening. I have a 2019 MDX Advance package. When you select sport mode , it does stiffen up the dampening affect of the suspension. You didnt point out that the 2022 has 50 ratio tires vs mine with 45 ratio tires. I had a non advance 2019 loaner last year , with 50 ratio tires on 20 inch wheels, and THERE was a difference in the ride comfort in the Sport mode. Previous generation MDXs don't have Snow modes, this one does. Too bad, Acura seems to hzve dropped the Canyon Bronze metallic exterior color as I have with the espresso leather interior. Since I got mi e in June 2019, I have received many compliments on the color, especially when she is all spiffed up..... I will say the model you tested looks very sharp.

    Acura Bluetooth disconnection has been a problem for years now. BT randomly disconnect for 3 years on my 2018 MDX with a Samsung S10 and now the same problem with the 2020 MDX and a brand new samsung S21. I am glad you notice the same problem with the BT on the 2022. So many have complained but got brushed aside by the dealer service department as the PHONE PROBLEM. I almost bought a Huyndai Palisade for more cargo room, better 2nd and 3r row seats (Ryan you can comfortably fit in the 3rd row of the Palisade), and better infosystem ergonomics. I personally detest the touch pad on my wife 2019 RDX, so I turned it in 1 year early -with a loss for a 2020 MDX. Ryan, I don't know whether you have any pulls with Acura engineers . If you are , can you relay the user frustration of the random BT disconnect. I use the phone for business a lot while driving so the disconnection/reconnection has been a huge annoyance for a so-called luxury cars. ALso this presents a driving safety issue as the user has to reach for the phone to continue the conversation, thus violating many states' law of hand free calling. Thanks in advance, A long time frustated owner of 5 acura cars.

      It’s not just Acura, I’ve owned BMW’s that do the same. I had to disable Bluetooth for songs and calls and just use the cord into the usb outlet. I just picked up a 2022 MDX aspec and I am getting use to the touchpad and all the technology.

      According to Acura it can send up to 100% to the back. But thats only in the unlikely scenario of 0% grip on BOTH front tires. The normal response is officially up to 70%. This is all theoretical and the reality is a highly varied and constantly changing output.

      I believe the most power transfer in any SH-AWD system is 90% to the rear of which up to 100% of that 90% can go to either rear wheel. This means always at least 10% power to the front minimum. There are several different SH-AWD configurations/systems in different Honda/Acura vehicles.

      When driving in-car I can only comment on what I was seeing on the gauges at that brief moment, which showed all the power to the back. Given the front wheel was still spinning, it makes sense that it was 100% of the split going to the back, which is up to 70% in most conditions. Hard to know for certain what the gauges actually represent numerically and we've been down that rabbit hole with the engineers -- you'll never get a singular answer.

      @Huddy Gaming , I suggest u go the Honda web page and study. The awd system used in passport and pilot is the same system used in mdx and rdx, and the tlx. The difference is only in the software which allows more torque be transferred to rear axle more often on Acura line vs Honda line. Actually Honda and Acura parts numbers are the same on the awd system.

    I view your video and when it came to the rugged roads tires which I believe you were using OEM tires. It would be interesting if you tried the Michelin CrossClimate 2 and see if there would be a difference.

      @Driving Sports TV maybe Acura should look at putting on a better tires for an AWD vehicle.

      We aren't allowed to install aftermarket tires on review vehicles. Also, this is one of MANY CrossClimate2 posts at the same time under different names on multiple videos. Coincidence?

      Probably. But we don't ever review reliability since it's behind the scope of our one week (or less) with each vehicle. Also, remember that leasing is popular in this segment, which makes long-term reliability less relevant.

    Hello Ryan, Would you mind to review the X5 xDrive 40i from BMW please? I will pick the german over this if the prise is close, I hate the touch pad in Acura and Mercedes, but at least the GLE has a touch screen

      I didn’t drive the X5 but instead the X3 M40i . Although the bmw power is better than the MDX, for the same price with a deal at $58,000 as the MDX Aspec vs M40i X3, you get real leather, interior lighting, collision mitigation, backup sensors, full pano roof, led headlight /tailights, all digital gauges and sport modes as bmw has BUT get a 3rd row and space as if you did get an X5. It was an easy decision . Go with BMW again and have some better driving for a few years before major issues come up again, or get the Acura and a better quality product with a little less HP. It’s really a toss up . For you, since you would consider the X5 you might end up with a lower end base Xdrive having to add back in packages to get what the top end Acura gives you for less.

      BMW insists on sending every car to us with summer tires. It's nuts. This seriously limits our ability to test them.

    You know I respect your videos but today you just went libertarian on me just like the democrats Don't you know how many problems Mercedes is having with transmission engine issues electrical I mean it's about reliability I just wish Lexus would get together with a large S UV or midsize S UV and there's a thing called Lift kit you know where you put Smallie but bigger tires lifted up about 3" Problem solved So I'm gonna lose confidence and your intelligence of doing these videos for choosing Mercedes
