    Why are their cameras so low quality? That looks like something you would expect to see on a Mitsubishi Mirage, not a $65K brand new Acura. The birdseye image is so blurry it is useless. Why can't Honda give Acura the budget to actually make a product that is on par or BETTER THAN the competition? The rearview camera in a Honda Civic or Accord is much clearer. Their "true touch" infotainment system is by far the worst infotainment system I have ever used. I cannot believe they kept it after all the backlash of the RDX. I also can't get past that cheap shiny black plastic that dominates the entire center stack on RDX, TLX and now MDX. It looks and feels so cheap. At least they put the digital gauge cluster into the MDX, their analog gauges they put on the RDX and TLX is atrocious, looking like something you would see in a 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer, not a 2022 Acura.

    Minor downside to the MDX - no door cup holders in the rear and no third row vent. Agree the the headrest juts forward a bit too much. The only remedy I found was to push the lumbar of the seat forward

    Where I live in Alabama we have Gulf beaches to Appalachian mountains and the joy of driving unlike Kansas or other really flat areas is now being experienced by me, with the new MDX 2022 model and it (after driving every luxury SUV) killed the competition. The German X5 was the closest to driving potential, like the big six with out turbos and it, the MDX does very well combined with that new ten speed transition. So smooth! Thousands less than the German models and much more room. I most likely will buy my wife the RDX soon! Thought I would buy a plug-in hybrid, or for that matter, maybe a hybrid, but our new Green New Deal direction has not convinced me that wind and/or solar will ever get the job done for total EV generation, at least not for many years, if at all. I only have ten years of college, and eight best selling books, but call me stupid as I have many friends sitting on the side of the road wondering via their driver anxiety can I find a level 2 charger in my $145,000 Porsche, as I see my computer says we will run out of EV in 25 miles, holly shit! So, this is just perfect and after my warranty runs out I will look again where EV's are and adjust to our country's new direction and maybe do this every three years or 36.000 miles. Fun times ahead! Check out the totally redone inside and out 2022 MDX Acura, it will impress and note Acura sales are off the charts, so that says it all, people know quality. Same with the RDX, just a little smaller for the little wife.

    Great review, keep it up! Wish Acura would rethink what is included in each trim level. Imagine a tech package that doesn't include third row USB ports or a standard 120v outlet. One you splurge for the top of the line, you find yourself asking why you are not considering going with one of the better competitors at that price point. Stuff other cars have for ~15K less.

    Acura have out-grown their function in the auto-market. Their "luxury" status seems to be rivaled by pretty much any well equipped standard contemporary brand, i.e. Toyota, Mazda, Hyundai, Honda (Ironically) etc; notice I didn't list any European brands or even some of the American brands, because in my opinion, Acura simply does not compete with true premium brands. They're essentially a top of the line Honda, which are very fine cars, but not in the competitive realm of "luxury" brands. My biggest gripe with Acura is the lack of engine choices. If I'm going to spend upwards of 50k up to the mid 60k price bracket, there is one thing that is non negotiable to me: Torque, I want torque, and excluding the NSX, the highest displacement engine available is the 3.5 which isn't turbo charged in any of its configurations. This is the same engine thats probably in almost every V-6 Honda product; great engine, but is it sufficient for "premium" brand-- I say no. Although i'm sure they'll start to move their platform into electric/hybrid anyways. Still, I rest my case.

    Why does Accura think that putting the Dynamic mode knob dead center in the instrument cluster such a good idea? Most people rarely adjust the driving mode in their day to day driving. They must think the driver is going to be change the driving mode 5 times during the drive! Ridiculous

    Good review Tommy! Unfortunately, this is more typical bs from Acura. Acura lost its way & still hasn’t found it! Who cares about the worthless 3rd row seats?! If one needs that many seats, they should look for a mini van or Suburban that has room for an actual usable 3rd row. Acura is STILL using ridiculous knobs & buttons that confuse drivers. I used to be a big Acura fan - back when they built sport luxury vehicles that lasted. Now it’s just quirky gimmicks. There is way more value per dollar in a Chevy now, vs. Acura.

    What a huge improvement over the 2020 model. I do wish at least on the Advance trim, the exterior cladding was body painted and not flat black. I'm also surprised A/C is still not included in the 3rd row, it gets really hot back there & takes forever to cool down in Florida summers, even with 2nd row air on high. These are a couple things the new GV80 offers, but each has their own strengths. Regardless, this new MDX is going to sell very very well, especially with expanded cargo space as a highlight. My GSP will take Blaze's word for pup comfort🙂 Great review!
