              Ba da, dar nu eram prea atent la ea (mai mult la fosta masina a lui Spider , si inca vreo 2 Type-R care erau prin zona) cand ati plecat stiu ca m-am uitat un pic in spate verifica cineva sunetul care era diferit fata / spate ceva de genul si m-am uitat si eu un pic, in plus, stiu ca era culoare gri/crem corect? Asta era neagra si nu puteam sa imi dezlipesc ochii de la ea nevasta ma atentiona sa fiu atent la drum ))))) eu nica, ACURAAAA.

                Best Seven Seat Seat SUV: 2010 BMW X5 Vs. 2010 Audi Q7 Vs. 2010 Acura MDX


                http://www.associatedcontent.com/art...x5.html?cat=27



                When it comes to luxurious seven passenger SUVs that manage the useful trick of not needing three "compact" parking spaces at the mall, no one does it better than BMW, Audi and Acura with the 2010 X5, Q7 and MDX. Acura pretty much patented the luxury seven seat crossover concept years ago with its first generation MDX and for 2010 it still maintains a strangle-hold on the more financially restrained end of the marketplace. (Read: The X5 and Q7 can get VERY pricey with options.)

                2010 Acura MDX:

                Okay, the MDX pretty much only comes one way: the way God and Acura intended it to be. That is why you only get one strong 3.7 liter gas powered 300 horsepower V6 with the same wheelbase so it is always not too big on the outside for suburban traffic warfare yet still has room for the legs of the humans in the third row seats. Then there are new standards like the redesigned and upgraded 2010 6-speed automatic which improves fuel economy over last year to 16 city/21 highway.

                Remember, no 7 seat SUV with AWD is going to get Prius-like EPA fuel efficiency numbers due to the simple fact that SUVs and crossovers all weigh quite substantial amounts. SUVs and crossovers are built to tackle tasks that 75% of the time you won't even be undertaking behind the wheel (like carrying seven people) but they need to offer you all of these abilities 100% of the time. The MDX does this all for you with a song in its heart and thankfully gives back even the unexpected which includes quite a bit of driving pleasure.

                Prices range from the very reasonable (for this category of vehicle), with the base model starting at $42,230 to the Navigation/Premium audio mid-level edition coming in at about $47,000 to the ultra-loaded $54,000 model that has so many high-tech features it may take you the life of the lease to read about them all in the owner's manual. Unlike the Audi and BMW, options only come loaded onto the Acura in bundles and in my opinion the mid-level Nav/Premium Audio variant is the best value proposition especially as Acura has one of the most intuitive navigators in the business.


                When fully loaded the MDX can essentially drive itself, brake itself, find its way around your hometown better than you can and possesses such a powerful premium audio system it could quite possibly render you deaf if it ever turned the volume up all the way up to the proverbial "This is Spinal Tap" marker at 11. Efficient, spacious yet still enjoyable to drive the 2010 MDX is without question all the SUV/crossover that anyone ever needs. Did you hear that Escalade drivers?

                2010 BMW X5

                Where the X5 really shines is in its ability to offer a multitude of ways to outfit your X5 to suit your personal style and taste. Just start by looking at engine choices. There is the basic 300 horsepower "basic" turbo model which gives turbine-like acceleration at all speeds for the "price-conscious" BMW driver, a high mile per gallon diesel variant for the tree-hugging ecology minded and even a turbocharged V8 and M-Powered models for people looking to use up the last of our national resources in high style.

                The interior of the X5 is standard BMW fare meaning austere styling mixed with high quality materials. Acceleration is strong even from the diesel engine and the only negative is that the third row seat in the X5 is too cramped even for children. At least children with legs.

                The X5 makes great sense as a fun to drive, fast SUV if you only need five seats. If you need seven you might want to have a look at either the Acura or the Audi. Make no mistake, however, that the X5 is probably the best handling SUV out there with the 2010 MDX with Acura's clever road holding SH-AWD system following close behind thanks to the infinite ways it can put power down through its wheels and onto the road.

                If you are in the market for a seven seat luxury SUV the MDX and X5 are absolute musts to test drive on the same day to see which ride/handling balance you prefer. To be honest, the MDX has a ride that cossets a bit more than the one found in the X5 but the variation is so minute that the choice would have to fall to your individual taste. Or whichever one had the most conveniently placed cupholders for your active lifestyle.

                2010 Audi Q7

                While the Audi lacks some of the third row spaciousness found in the MDX, it is roomier than the one in the BMW. The Audi also offers three engine options, a naturally aspirated six-cylinder that can get over-burdened at times and diesel or V8 gas engines that never make the driver feel anything less than "over-adequate."


                Sadly the exterior styling of the Q7 is not up to the standards of its very own stylishly well built interior. The Q7 looks stylistically squeezed in the midsection almost as if it is trying to fit into a suit coat that is three sizes too tight for it. Little brother Q5 suffers from no style styling lapses and that is why it (and not the Q7) is the second best selling Audi model in the United States.

                While the Q7 makes a fine choice as a seven seat SUV, the MDX is a better value when you compare them feature to feature and the Acura also manages to score out over the Audi in the elusive "fun to drive" quotient. Additionally, whereas the Acura feels smaller than it is from behind the wheel, the Audi pretty much always feels like the size it is. And that's no fun.

                Who wins?

                If you need actual space for seven definitely buy the MDX. It is the more "completely engineered" package in that regard. However, if you can ditch a couple of kids from carpool there is absolutely nothing wrong with an X5 especially with the diesel engine and 425 mind blowing pound feet of torque! Oh yeah, and all that "good fuel economy" stuff thrown in.

                      Test Car Notes: 2010 Acura MDX iPod Interface Video




                      YouTube - MDX Voice Interface iPod.MOV



                      The Acura MDX is one impressive luxury SUV and arguably the one Acura that stands above its competition. Even if they were the same price, I'd easily pick the MDX over an X5 or Mercedes ML. I couldn't say that about the TSX or TL versus the 3 Series, A4, C Class, etc.
                      One area that all Acuras have excelled at in the past decade, though, is in-car technology. This video shows the company's latest iPod interface, and whether you use voice commands or the easy iDrive-like knob, it's a truly excellent system.

                          2010 Acura MDX

                          http://reviews.cnet.com/suv/2010-acu...-33999811.html + VIDEO


                          Luxury SUVs have become such a common sight that the notation for the 2010 Acura MDX on our schedule didn't raise much interest around the office. But then we saw the thing. Rather than the somewhat delicate, beak-nosed vehicle of the past, this one's squarish stance and big air scoops made it look like a hardened criminal.

                          OK, an exterior styling update. Fine. But Acuras have always seemed like upscale Hondas, never embodying the real luxury found in competitive brands such as Mercedes-Benz or BMW. We got in the cabin expecting to find the usual midlevel cabin appointments, but were instead greeted with beautiful wood-grained trim elements and thick leather seats.
                          Facing us in the center of the dashboard was the usual Acura controller, a large knob that works as a joystick and dial, surrounded by buttons with an LCD above. We weren't thrilled to see the same old maps on the navigation system, strictly 2D with somewhat jaggy resolution showing on street names.



                          Acura's stack looks cleaner in the MDX than in previous generations.




                          Given that Acura uses an in-dash hard drive for the navigation system, we can't imagine these older generation maps take up a whole lot of space. Twisting the big knob around to delve into the navigation system's menus, we found the latest Zagat listings for restaurants and one of our favorite features, a database of scenic drives, listed by state.
                          Entering a destination into the system proved as easy as ever, the proximity of the knob to the screen making inputs seem nearly as direct as using a touch screen. Maneuvering the MDX out onto the route it calculated, we noticed the traffic flow and incident information overlaid on the maps, and dug into the settings to ensure that the car would dynamically change the route when bad traffic cropped up.
                          The navigation system guided us through city streets, its route guidance enunciating street names, and the MDX proved very drivable. In the madness of downtown streets, where random double-parked cars and road construction require quick lane changes, the MDX's light steering and responsive low-speed acceleration helped us jump the car from lane to lane.

                          Further assisting quick maneuvering was the MDX's blind-spot detection, which lit up an icon at the base of the A-pillar when it detected a car in the lane next to us. Given the high sides of the MDX, cars in the next lane were often completely invisible. Blind-spot detection is one of our favorite safety features, and it is nice to see Acura employing it in the MDX.



                          This icon in the A-pillar lights up when a car is in the MDX's blind spot.




                          During this excursion we had the suspension in Comfort mode, which made it feel like we were driving a waterbed. The car moved along with a slow motion wallow, softening the ride and absorbing the bumps and pits mining the asphalt.
                          Power on
                          At a freeway onramp, we hit the gas hard to see how the MDX handled acceleration at the top end. Here, the 3.7-liter V-6 brought its 270 pound-feet of torque to bear, spooling up the car and engine speed, reaching toward 6,300rpm where the horsepower peaks at 300. This engine isn't the most high tech compared with what other automakers are offering, but it does have Honda's VTEC valve timing.
                          At freeway speeds, the suspension didn't hunker down, and we were still left with the soft wallow. But it didn't adversely affect the handling, either. The steering had the usual slack built in for an SUV, allowing for effortless driving. Since the beginning of this drive, we were eager to push the button on the console that would put the suspension into Sport mode, but restrained ourselves in the interests of testing the comfort setting completely.

                          We left the transmission in its standard drive mode, too, holding off on using its sport setting until we found an appropriate road. But flicking the paddle shifters on the steering wheel, we noticed the gear indicator showing 6. Acura has finally caught up with the rest of the world, installing six-speed transmissions. At 70 mph, the engine hummed along at a little under 2,000rpm, which should improve fuel economy.
                          The EPA rating for the MDX is 16 mpg city and 21 mpg highway, not particularly great numbers, but the vehicle does have third-row seating. In our driving, which combined city, mountain roads, and the freeway, we came in at 17.6 mpg.



                          You can change the following distance for the adaptive cruise control with a button on the steering wheel.




                          The freeway gave us the opportunity to test the car's adaptive cruise control, another new feature for Acura. Setting the speed at 70 mph, we left the brake and gas alone, watching as the MDX matched speeds with the car ahead, maintaining a set distance. There was plenty of traffic, with some slowdowns to 40 mph, but the car kept its distance from the one ahead, and did not react badly when other cars cut in front of us.
                          Acura uses the adaptive cruise control's forward radar for a collision warning system, as well, a feature we saw in action when we took back manual control of the car. Coming up a little too close to slow traffic, a helpful amber Brake sign flashed in the instrument cluster. A little acceleration while coming up on slow traffic also got the seatbelt tensioners to tighten up as the Acura braced us for an expected crash.
                          Having tested these useful driver aids, we turned attention to the stereo, the premium ELS audio system found in high-trim Acuras. With 410 watts of power and 10 speakers with which to deliver it, this system can get loud, but its default tuning leans toward well-defined treble. Putting in a bass-heavy track and maxing out the subwoofer level does bring out some thump, but in general this surround sound system seems designed for acoustic, orchestral, and light pop.

                          We mentioned previously that the navigation system uses a hard drive, so we weren't surprised to find HDD as one of the audio sources. Acura makes 15GB of the hard drive available for music, with an onboard Gracenote database that automatically recognizes and tags CDs. The disc player also plays MP3 CDs and DVD audio.



                          With voice command, you can tell the car what music to play from an iPod.




                          A USB port in the console supports USB thumb drives or iPods. We plugged an iPhone into the system and had access to all of our music, sorted by album, artist, and genre. More impressively, we found that we could choose music through voice command, a feature heretofore only available from Ford and Mitsubishi. In the MDX, we had to push the voice button, say "iPod search," then push the voice button again to request specific artists, albums, or tracks. This feature, called Song by Voice, worked well, never once getting our requests wrong.
                          As for the iPhone, at the same time we were using it as an audio source, we also had it paired up to the MDX's Bluetooth phone system. The onscreen phone system offered all we could want, with a recent calls screen, phonebook imported from the phone, and dial by number. But this system doesn't support using voice command to interface with names in the phonebook, somewhat of a surprise considering the voice command interaction with the iPhone's music library. Although we like being able to call up music by artist name, placing phone calls by name would seem to be a more essential feature.
                          Straightening the curves
                          After some time spent enjoying music on the freeway, we finally made it to suitable roads for testing out the MDX's sport settings. We generally don't expect to throw SUVs hard around corners and get anything like a satisfying experience, but the MDX had a sport suspension setting, something we don't see too often.

                          Acura fitted the MDX with magnetic suspension technology, similar to that used by Audi. The suspension has electromagnetic coils wrapped around shocks filled with an iron-enriched fluid. When those coils power up, the magnetic fields make the fluid become more viscous. But rather than just making the suspension more rigid, a computer analyzes the MDX's roll and yaw, along with other factors, and constantly adjusts the power in the coils to actively counteract roll.



                          A button near the shifter toggles the suspension between sport and comfort modes.




                          With the suspension set and the shifter in the Sport gate, we proceeded to plow into a nice mountain highway, heading for the turns at speed. The transmission kept the engine speed above 3,000rpm and we tugged the wheel over as we went into the first corner. The results were amazing, with the suspension keeping the car level and putting it into a nice, flat rotation.
                          As we gave it gas on the way through the turn, Acura's Super Handling All-Wheel-Drive system (SH-AWD) performed its torque vectoring magic, sending power across the rear axle to spin the outside wheel harder than the inside. The feeling of the car sending its back end around to help complete the corner was fantastic.
                          Finding these systems working in harmony to improve handling, we flung the MDX into each successive corner, marveling at the very non-SUV-like performance. We've only experienced this type of handling in two other SUVs, the Porsche Cayenne GTS and the BMW X5 M. The MDX may not be quite up to the level of performance of those vehicles because of disparity in engine sizes, but it was just as much of a joy to plunge through tight corners.
                          Besides the relative shortage of power, the MDX's transmission doesn't quite live up to its promise of sport. In Sport mode, it doesn't keep the engine revving quite high enough for consistent power, and neither does it aggressively downshift when braking before a corner, as some other sport transmissions do. It does have a Manual mode, complete with paddle shifters, but the response to manual gear changes shows typical automatic transmission lag.

                          In sum:

                          We came away very impressed with the 2010 Acura MDX. The combination of an updated cabin tech suite, the new Song by Voice feature, blind-spot warning, and adaptive cruise control earned it an excellent cabin tech score, the main drawback being the low-res maps. As for the performance tech, the engine isn't much improved from the prior generation, and the transmission's Sport mode could be more sporty. But we do appreciate the sixth gear, and the handling comes up to the level of much more expensive cars. The MDX also cuts a nice enough figure, its grille-work being its best design element. The sides and back are a little more humdrum. Acura did nice work on the interior, which should make buyers feel like they are getting their $50k-plus worth.

                                m-ar interesa foarte mult o comparatie intre Acura MDX 2010 si Toyota Land Cruiser 150... nu stiu daca se preteaza la un versus, dar as vrea sa stiu care dintre ele ofera cel mai bun compromis intre offroad si onroad

                                s-a facut pana acum vreo comparatie de genul asta?... are cineva vreo idee?
