This week, I had the opportunity to try out the 2022 Acura MDX SH-AWD A-SPEC. This generation of the MDX stands out as the most luxurious, performance-oriented, and technologically advanced SUV in Acura’s history. I was impressed by the sturdy and rugged feel and appearance of the new MDX. Utilizing a brand-new light truck platform, Acura has successfully balanced performance and power while maintaining an upscale and refined interior cabin. The test vehicle I drove offered great value for its price.


The exterior redesign of the 2022 Acura MDX presents a bold and sporty stance. The vehicle exudes an aura of versatility, inviting you to take it anywhere you desire. The elongated hood flowing seamlessly into the front grille is a design highlight. The wider wheelbase contributes to the robust and solid appearance of the exterior. The ground clearance is ideal for both off-road excursions and everyday driving maneuvers.


Stepping inside the vehicle, you are greeted with a sophisticated interior equipped with advanced technology. The sport seats offer exceptional comfort for long drives, with the option for luxurious Milano Leather upholstery. The interior is crafted with attention to detail and refinement, accentuated by real aluminum accents.

The centerpiece of the interior is the 12.3-inch HD display, packed with technology and driver options, as well as a wealth of data for analytical individuals. The 2021 MDX features the first-ever all-digital instrument panel display, which enhances the overall ambiance of the interior.

Acura has maximized the cabin space, boasting accommodation for up to 7 passengers along with ample cargo room and utility. One standout feature that passengers often appreciate is the Iconic Drive Lighting, particularly striking at night.

Engine / Power-train

The 2022 Acura MDX SH-AWD comes equipped with a robust yet fuel-efficient 290-horsepower 3.5 L V6 mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The vehicle delivers a balance of power and efficiency with a combined fuel economy of 21 MPG, 19 MPG in the city, and 25 MPG on the highway.

The A-Spec Package

The A-Spec package includes the A-Spec Sport Exterior Appearance Package, A-Spec Sport Interior Appearance Package, Ventilated Front Seats, LED Fog Lights, and Stainless Steel Sport Pedals.


Acura has prioritized safety in the MDX, with Acurawatch being standard across all models and trim levels. The vehicle is equipped with a range of advanced safety features and driver-assistive technologies aimed at enhancing driver awareness, preventing collisions, and minimizing the impact of accidents. Some of the notable safety features include Collision Mitigation Braking System, Forward Collision Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Assist, and Road Departure Mitigation.
