The 2014 Acura MDX is a lot like the new BMW X5 in many ways, as they target the same market, as well as them both being third-generation models. However, that’s where their similarities end, as the former is said to be completely redesigned, whereas the latter is just an evolution of its predecessor.
To give you an idea of the many changes we thought you would be interested in viewing a couple of 2014 Acura MDX reviews, because the differences to this all-new model has to be seen to be believed. Some of those changes are more lighter, faster, safer more sumptuous and more importantly, has increased fuel-efficient.
MDX is the biggest selling vehicle for Acura, so they need to get this new model right, and from what we have seen in the video reviews, this continued success could be touch and go. Even though the new model has been redesigned, it seems strange why it still looks the same as the old model, unless they felt it was better to spend that time under the skin?
The first video makes a point of this same issue, and believes that you will be hard pressed to tell the two of them apart. Having said that, there is a difference to the front end with those new LED lights, and although the silver logo tries to hide the ugly look at the front, it’s still there. The review is not all negative, but it’s always best to get the bad points out of the way first.
In the second 2014 Acura MDX review we can’t help think the reviewer hates the new model, but maybe he is just being honest? However, after watching the entire video, he does seem to really hate the new version, even down to the new touchscreen controls. Okay, so we know that it takes a little longer to get to certain functions, but it’s much better than having cluttered buttons on the console, and also the fact that you now have much more control over certain features of the new Acura MDX.
Are you a lover or hater of the new model?
