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

Since its introduction in 2001, the #AcuraMDX has been one of the best-selling 3-row luxury SUV's in America. While the current generation was starting to fall behind its main rivals, for 2022, @Acura has finally given the #MDX exactly what it needs to be worthy as the brand's flagship vehicle. This #MDXASpec is the closest thing you'll get to an #MDXTypeS, at least until that model arrives later this summer.
Click here to watch how the new #Acura MDX stacks up against the 2021 #CadillacXT6:

    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

    Did he say you have to go to higher trim to get heated steering wheel? The rear end of the car looks dated already and the info screen mounted on top of the dash is always bad. No excuse for not having touch screen. It looks like Acura is now taking ideas and sharing parts with Mazda? I'm not staying here long enough to hear the price on this thing

    AMEN to the Plug-in Hybrid option. Acura will be left in the dust if they don't get on the EV wagon. Plus, YES to the A-SPEC with the Advanced package. Why this is not an option is insane!! Almost every new Acura I pass on the road now is an A-SPEC. Yet they think these drivers don't want the other features? Who's making these decisions at Acura!! Wake up!!!

    One more thing, you keep smiling whenever you put your foot to the floor, but you are still wanting more, more, more... you did same with NSX review and type R.... when is more enough?... based on comments from so many reviewers, we will soon have 70 " tv in our vehicles and tractor trailer engines😂😂😂😂😂

    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 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.

    As a multiple Acura Owner family (Vigor, Integra, Legend, MDX), it’s disappointing that they have polluted their DNA with that of another manufacturer. Combine this with the ultra thin gauge steel of the body, and that REALLY CHEESY afterthought display, and it will be really difficult to even enter an Acura showroom. Why not go upmarket and buy a Honda Pilot.

    I really don't like the black around the wheel wells. It does look sporty in the A -Spec configuration but I wish they would color match around the wheels and bumper. It seem like every car company is going to it and I don't care for it. Fine on an Explorer or a Jeep but let's stop when we move into more luxury lines of vehicles. Also, PLEASE no more tablets sticking up or attached to the dash board! The Germans have gone away from it and it give a much more finished look when they are incorporated within.

    No matter how many times customers say, "Do NOT put piano black trim in or on a car," they still do it. Stupid. Same thing with all the screens and touch stuff. People need their eyes on the road, not their consoles. If you're going to bother putting screens in the car, then stop giving us unintelligible engine lights and indicators that tell us nothing about what is wrong with the car. If people can buy $30 car error code readers, then it should simply be built into the car. After watching him at 5'7" have his knees extend farther from the back row than the middle row goes, I stopped watching. Why have all the cargo space if you literally can't functionally use the third row seating?
