    ACURA MDX

    http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do...ticleId=116651

    un nou V6 de 3.7l cu 300CP din pacate transmisia este o hidramata in 5 trepte ( acu' cand Mercedes a intodus cutii hidramate in 7 trepte iar GM e gata sa introduca cutii in 6trepte pe SUV-ui si truck-ui e cam rusinica sa pui 5 trepte pe un SUV premium chiar daca e una reusita):

    The new 3.7-liter power plant still features VTEC variable valve timing and lift control to optimize horsepower and torque characteristics while promoting fuel economy. This time, however, a sky-high 11.0:1 compression ratio, electronic throttle, and variable intake and exhaust systems bring about a far more responsive engine in all rev ranges.

    At 17/22mpg the 2007 MDX is more fuel-efficient than the X5 3.0i's 15/19 mpg or Cayenne's 15/21 mpg.
    suspensii magnetico-reologice ( experimentate initial de Cadillac de vreo 5 ani):

    The MR dampers do as advertised: smoothing out the ride on the rough stuff and firming up for spirited driving. Only a few times did we feel the comfort mode was just a little too apt to float and bound on some undulating highways. Likewise, there were a few times when the MR suspension revealed a slightly artificial feeling. With its prime directive being to keep the vehicle more or less upright, we found it to be slightly meddling and apt to jounce if we weren't absolutely steady with the steering wheel all the way through a corner. Piloted smoothly, however, the MDX's steady-state line tracing is nearly perfect.
    comparatia sumara cu X5, Cayenne si XC90:

    At the track, Acura reps assembled the aforementioned BMW X5 3.0i and Porsche Cayenne V6, and threw in a V8-powered Volvo XC90 to add insult to injury. Granted, there were no representatives from the other vehicles' manufacturers to prepare, observe or defend the contest, so it falls short of an authorized comparison. The unofficial results, however, indicate the MDX was the superior vehicle. It was easily quicker, more controlled and entertaining when compared to the BMW or Volvo. Where the X5 and XC90 summoned either overzealous stability-control intervention or developed terminal understeer entering a corner, the MDX simply dove in and powered out of those same corners.

    The Cayenne behaved like a Porsche should, rewarding an aggressive driving style with precise steering and a balanced chassis that would allow some sideways antics in both on- and off-throttle situations. It was a willing dance partner to be sure; however, the MDX was still the quicker, more confidence-inspiring vehicle — with the Porsche's stability control turned off and the MDX's still on.

    When the Acura's vehicle stability assist (VSA) was shut off, it matched the Porsche's athleticism and penchant for crazy yaw angles. Nevertheless, it was obvious the 300-hp MDX had longer legs than the 247-hp Cayenne, running away on every straight bit of track.
    super handling AWD:

    Because the system is continually active instead of being merely reactive, it always sends power to the individual wheel(s) with the greatest need or use for it. Most people will never detect the seamless transfer of power, nor would they have imagined they had just preempted VSA. Instead, they'd just presume the MDX was an exceptionally talented vehicle, and it is.
    televizoare si alte "bells and whistles":

    Every new ( echipament standard) MDX features three-row seating, the 3.7-liter V6, five-speed automatic and SH-AWD plus a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel, 10-way adjustable driver- and eight-way adjustable front-passenger seats, tri-zone climate control, eight-speaker 253-watt audio system with XM Satellite Radio and auxiliary jack for personal audio input, and Bluetooth connectivity. Safety is covered by a bevy of airbags, including one for the driver's knees and impending rollover deployment of the side curtains.

    The Technology package adds GPS navigation with voice recognition and real-time traffic updates, rearview camera, GPS-linked solar-sensing climate control, 410-watt 10-speaker ultrapremium audio with surround sound and CD/DVD-audio changer.

    A Sport package perforates and upgrades the leather seats, adds the button-operated MR dampers, exclusive wheel design and auto-leveling xenon HID headlamps.

    Finally, an Entertainment package is available in conjunction with either the Technology or Sport packages and includes a rear-seat DVD player with 9-inch flip-down screen, an infrared remote and headphones (movie audio playback can also be routed through the MDX's surround speakers), an input jack for gaming and a 110-volt power outlet.
    pret:

    intre 41 si 50K USD. cu care spulbera orice germana similara in aceeasi bani.


    si toate astea concepute de centrul R&D din Ohio. masina va fi asamblata ca si pana acum in Aliston, Ontario.

    2013 Acura MDX Elite Road Test Review

    For those seeking a practical yet luxurious seven-passenger SUV/crossover there's certainly no shortage of challengers worth considering. But one in particular stands out - the Acura MDX. The current, second-generation MDX has topped the midsize luxury SUV/crossover sales charts ever since it was introduced in 2007, thanks in large part to its compelling blend of style, performance, practicality and luxury. Then there's the MDX's value proposition: with a starting price tag of $55,135 it handily undercuts competitors like the Audi Q7, which starts at $61,395 with third row seating, the Lexus GX starting at $64,495, or the BMW X5, which starts at $65,895 by the time you add in the third-row seats (all prices include destination). The only seven-seat luxury rival that competes on price is Infiniti's JX35 at $46,895, but for those seeking driving engagement there's no contest.

    2013 is the farewell year for the second-generation MDX, because an all-new version is waiting for 2014. But the current MDX goes out looking good: it was last refreshed in 2010 and regardless of what you might think about Acura's "power plenum" grille, the MDX's sleekly angular and somewhat conservative lines have withstood the test of time remarkably well. And while there are no significant changes for 2013, it does get some revisions to the available paint colours.

    Inside, the MDX offers a convincingly luxurious atmosphere. The well-appointed cabin features abundant use of soft-surface materials (including the dash and door uppers), with leather upholstery in all models and perforated Milano leather upholstery in Technology and Elite models. There's rich-looking woodgrain trim (though purists may note that it's not real wood), a very nice stitched leather centre console armrest, eight-way power seat adjustments for both front seats (with two-position memory on the driver's side), heated seats in the first two rows, backup camera (multi-view in the Technology and Elite models), power moonroof, power tailgate and, of course, tri-zone automatic climate control, power windows and locks, and a range of impressive audio systems with standard Bluetooth hands-free telephone connectivity.

    My test vehicle's Elite trim added to the interior ambience with heated/ventilated front seats, and the Technology and Elite trim both include a blind spot information system and upgraded 410-watt ELS premium sound system with USB input, 15 gigabyte hard drive storage, navigation, rear seat DVD entertainment and Bluetooth streaming audio.

    Notably missing from this list of features is proximity-sensing keyless entry and pushbutton start, which one imagines will likely make an appearance on the third-generation 2014 MDX. The foot-actuated park brake also seems a little out-of-place in a luxury crossover, although I actually prefer it in some ways to the newfangled electronically activated park brakes that are now expected in the segment.

    In practical matters, I found that first two rows of seating both offered a comfortable, supportive fit for my 5'11" frame, while the third row was, as might expected, better suited for kids. I did fit back there but it's tight for headroom and legroom, like riding in the rear of a sporty coupe. With the third row seats deployed you get a reasonable 425 litres of cargo space, which expands to 1,215 litres with the third row folded and 2,364 litres with the second and third rows both folded. The back two rows are both split-folding (50/50 for the third row and 60/40 for the second), providing a wide variety of cargo configurations.

    Under the hood, the MDX has a 3.7-litre VTEC V6 that generates 300-hp at 6,300 rpm and 270 lb-ft of torque at 4,500 rpm, and is hooked up to a six-speed automatic transmission with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters. The big V6 has a nice low growl and lots of grunt (which allows a healthy 2,268-kg towing capacity), and in normal driving it mostly just purrs along between 2,000-3,000 rpm. It has a lofty 6,600-rpm redline however, and if you floor the accelerator it'll happily wind all the way into the upper rev range, pushing the MDX from 0 to 100km/h in 7.6 seconds. Slip the shifter into sport mode and use the paddle shifters and the drivetrain becomes remarkably lively and sporty, although I found the wheel-mounted paddles a little small and noted that the transmission takes care of the first-to-second shift automatically almost regardless of what you do.

    Getting the power to the road is Acura's SH-AWD (super-handling all-wheel drive) system, which constantly measures wheel speed, steering angle, g-forces and the vehicle's yaw angle, and then varies the amount of power being fed to each of the rear wheels to help reduce understeer and keep the vehicle almost perfectly balanced. Push the MDX hard into a corner and you can sense the system at work, but it doesn't feel at all intrusive. Instead, it gives the big crossover delightfully confidence-inspiring agility, even on rain-slicked roads.

    In the Elite trim the MDX gets big 19-inch alloys and an active damper system that uses variable-viscosity magnetic fluid in the shock absorbers to instantaneously adjust the damping force, providing a relatively soft, compliant ride while maintaining a flat attitude and excellent grip in corners (a "comfort" button lets you soften the ride on rough roads, though it does induce a fair bit of pitching over bumps). Between the active dampers and the SH-AWD system, the result is that the MDX handles much more like a sedan than its high stance and hefty 2,109-kg curb weight (in Elite trim) might imply.

    While the MDX offers good performance and handling, it doesn't do quite as well in terms of fuel economy, with official ratings of 13.2 / 9.6 L/100km (city/hwy). Transport Canada's ratings are generally on the optimistic side and I found this especially true with Acura's largest, which asks for pricey premium fuel and in my real world short-hop city driving used close to 18 L/100km of the stuff. Happily, highway driving generates numbers much closer to the official figure, but I only had a couple of brief highway runs during my week with the MDX.

    Overall, the second-generation MDX still holds up well as it gets ready to bow out. It's big enough to be versatile, but not so big as to be a challenge around town. It offers good power and has excellent handling for a crossover. It has a stellar array of safety features, and boasts commensurately good safety ratings. There are lots of storage cubbies - including in unexpected but welcome places like the passenger's console side - and plenty of luxury and technology packed into the cabin, especially in Elite trim.

    With suggested pricing starting at the previously-mentioned base price of $55,135 and climbing to $65,335 for the Elite trim, destination in, the MDX is competitive with its luxury rivals yet it offers more practicality than most of them and more standard equipment than many others. And as Acura dealers get ready to welcome the new third-generation 2014 model, buyers can almost certainly look forward to deals on the 2013, such as the $10,000 cash purchase incentive being offered at press time in Acura's Master the Road sales event. It's a tempting offer on a top seller, and ensures that the MDX should remain on the must-see list for anyone in the market for a seven-passenger luxury crossover.

    Acura MDX

    The Acura MDX is a large seven-passenger crossover vehicle. Introduced for the 2001 model year, the MDX is in its second generation, with the newer version arriving in showrooms as a 2007 model. A 2010 mid-cycle update added new features and a new corporate face to the big crossover vehicle, which remains one of our top-rated family vehicles.

    The Acura MDX is built in Alliston, Ontario, and shares some of its running gear with a wide swath of Honda and Acura models, including the Honda Pilot and Honda Odyssey. It competes most directly with the Lexus RX crossovers, the Volvo XC70, the Ford Flex and the similar Lincoln MKT.

    2005 Acura MDX

    2005 Acura MDX

    The first-generation Acura MDX replaced a slow-selling vehicle dubbed the SLX--simply, a rebadged version of the then-current Isuzu Trooper. Offered as a seven-passenger crossover, the MDX came with a single drivetrain, a 3.5-liter V-6 with 240 horsepower, mated to a five-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. Over the years, this first MDX would see its power boosted to 265 hp, while it added features such as Bluetooth connectivity, a rear-seat DVD entertainment system, Bose audio and satellite radio, and a voice-activated navigation system. Side-curtain airbags were another addition to the MDX's safety package, which performed well in crash tests. While it never reached the prestigious ubiquity of the Lexus RX, the Acura MDX became a reliable sight in upscale mall parking lots and commuter lanes thanks to its luxe equipment, its airy interior and its relatively good ride and handling.

    A new, second-generation MDX emerged in the 2007 model year, and brought with it a more substantial look and feel, both inside and out. It featured an uprated engine--now at 3.7 liters and 300 hp--and a new all-wheel-drive system related to the one that would bow in the new Acura RL, "Super Handling All-Wheel Drive." Standard equipment included a sunroof and leather trim, while options included a high-quality premium audio package; voice-activated navigation; and a rear-seat DVD entertainment system. Handling remained tried and true to its crossover positioning, but the MDX's interior grew more spacious and useful, giving it one of the most adult-friendly interiors of any crossover vehicle. Fuel economy, though, was not a strong point, at 14/20 mpg (it's improved to 16/21 in more recent years).

    In 2010, the two-door Acura ZDX was introduced, with the model sharing some mechanicals with the MDX. Also that year, the MDX got a mid-cycle refresh, adopting Acura's controversial corporate grille, which some have likened to a bottle opener. It's the best-integrated version of the grille on any Acura, at least. The MDX also received new electronic power steering in 2010 that misses the mark completely for responsiveness (it's too fast) and heft (it's way too light). The MDX still stands out for its strong powertrain performance, and for its large, cozy cabin and high-quality finishes. Into 2011 and 2012, very little else changed for the MDX. Safety remains a strong point, with the 2012 MDX named an IIHS Top Safety Pick.

    The MDX returns for the 2013 model year, unchanged.

    de notat ca MDX ramane printre cele mai bine vandute SUV-uri premium in America de Nord desi desigur se asteapta noua generatie prob pt anul viitor ( deocamdata nici modelul 2012 nu a fost dezvaluit dar va fi prob foarte similar cu 2011).
