The 2022 Acura MDX A-Spec is Acura's New 3-Row Flagship Luxury SUV

While the current generation was starting to fall behind its main rivals, for 2022, @Acura has finally given the exactly what it needs to be worthy as the brand's flagship vehicle. This is the closest thing you'll get to an , at least until that model arrives later this summer.

    The new MDX gives us hope that Acura seems to have found their mojo again. We look forward to trying out the Type S models later this year! We'd also like to see Acura give us an Advance plus A-Spec trim together! At just over $58k for this A-Spec model, it is a much better value versus a lot of competitors which get a quite a bit more expensive.

      I guess the best option, for now, is to customize an advanced model with 20-in glint black alloy wheels as an option. And do your own black accent for a sporty appearance... so sad

    The iPhone charging issue is with the phone. I had the same problem when I test drive it and have the same problem with my 12 pro in my current car. iPhone 11 Pro did the same thing until they did a software update. I’m assuming the same will happen. My wife’s iPhone 11 Pro charges just fine with a case in the Acura.

    I just picked up my 2022 ASpec in Blue with Red interior. OMG. I absolutely love it. I traded my 3 month old Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited X for it. This is so much more vehicle for less money than my Grand Cherokee. My ASpec however does have the hands free rear hatch, remote start and heated steering wheel and windshield. I can't say enough about this vehicle. As a licensed automotive service technician and shop owner I can say that Acura/Honda and Toyota/Lexus make some of the best vehicles. I don't even know why I bothered with a North American SUV in the first place.

    Acura needs to update how it spec's each model like he says. You can't get an A-spec with all the rest. Also the gauge cluster is not all that great and has many elements of my Honda Ridgeline. They kind of copied styling from Mazda CX-9 because that vehicle looks great and for the money I'd still choose the CX-9 for much less money. You'll be at 65k for a fully loaded and you could get a CX-9 Signature for 20k less

      @angus p most parts are shared with other GM vehicles aside from body panels. Today Chevy is much better than Honda! "...Chevrolet commissioned independent research company Ipsos to conduct a survey. The details specify that reliability is defined as "the percentage of vehicle owners who reported they have not repaired or replaced any vehicle components in the past 12 months (excluding fluids, filters and those related to accident/collision)."... "...The survey sent out 840,979 letters to 2015 model-year vehicle owners, with time in service starting December 2014 through June 2015. Overall, Ipsos received 48,679 responses from Acura, Audi, BMW, Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Ford, GMC, Honda, Hyundai, Infiniti, Jaguar, Jeep, Kia, Land Rover, Lexus, Lincoln, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Ram, Subaru, Toyota, Volkswagen and Volvo owners.

    It needs to be buffed out and ceramic coated. Acura has too much orange peel, the paint finish could be refined. Looks great otherwise. I'm an owner of a 2010 MDX Advanced model with 280k+, Mayan Bronze Metallic with Brown Umber interior, great vehicle. Buffed and coated and it looks new. It should come with a Hybrid option to get the 0-60 in line plus towing would be a better experience. I would want the ASPEC Red with Red Interior which I don't think they offer. They also need a Carbon interior trim package.

    100% correct, as he ask for the plug-in hybrid with the competition moving forward and full EV leaving many who travel long trips, etc. do not want driver anxiety. Plug-ins with say 50 miles on battery charge will allow most to drive 80%+ on EV and then still have the security of knowing you can drive another 400 miles on gas! Other than that, MDX is much better. The new RX should be bigger with a third row, and also have the plug-in prime format, much like the RA4 Prime in 2022. Fun time for new formats!

    Thanks for your review, you are very good when you stick to the fact, I either laugh at, or scratch my head when you start adding your opinions...eg... saying the vehicle should get more power to 300hp, why???(which you also then say type S is coming soon 😂😂😂... also, most of us owners buy MDX or pilot but don't always carry 7 passengers in fact very rare.... another thing is shift controls clear up space for adding buttons because of ACURA reviewers. Another thing is volume controls ( which the driver has steering wheel controls) and many of you forget this class was created by Acura MDX and still best seller and possibly best reliability.
