2010 Acura MDX Priced From $42,230

Follow Viknesh

Acura has updated its MDX for the 2010 model year, with a number of styling, performance, and technology updates to keep it fresh against its rivals. The big SUV keeps its versatile seven-passenger, three-row layout but sports a new exterior look, a revised powertrain, several chassis refinements, more comfort features and a longer standard equipment list.

The 2010 Acura MDX luxury SUV is now on sale across the country with a starting price of $42,230, plus a destination and handling charge of $810. The vehicle is available in five trim packages including: the base MDX; MDX with Technology Package; MDX with Technology and Entertainment Packages; MDX with Advance Package; and MDX with Advance and Entertainment Packages.

Powering every MDX is a more refined V-6 engine matched to a brand new 6-speed automatic transmission and Acura's Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system. Displacing 3.7-liters, the new V-6 generates 300 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque, while returning an EPA estimated city/highway fuel economy of 16/21 mpg.

Despite only a 3% increase in price, the base model gets a host of new standard features including a power rear tailgate, steering wheel mounted paddle shifters, an auto-dimming rearview mirror with integrated rear view camera screen, LED backlit instrumentation, a new hill start assist feature and custom floor mats.

Also included is the MDX's previous standard equipment including leather trim, a power moonroof, a tri-zone climate control system, Bluetooth connectivity and an 8-speaker premium audio system with XM Radio and a 6-CD changer.

Listed below is pricing for the full 2010 Acura MDX lineup. Note that every MDX incurs a destination and handling charge of $810.

MDX - $42,230
MDX w/ Technology Package - $45,905
MDX w/ Technology & Entertainment Packages - $47,805
MDX w/ Advance Package - $51,855
MDX w/ Advance & Entertainment Packages - $53,755

  1. Acura owners I know cite the level of standard features as a major purchasing influence. Compared to BMW/MB/Audi, with insane option pricing, I understand this mentality. I thought the same way when I leased a TSX in '04: sure it was a 4 cyl/FWD car compared to the BMW I really wanted, but all the standard kit made a base 325i feel cheap by comparison.
    But today I don't get it. The pricing edge is mostly gone, especially compared to Infiniti, and the styling of every model has moved from generic Japanese luxury into the realm of absurdity. I guess people do place more importance on cool navigation systems and surround sound over style and fuel efficiency. At least they all crash test well.

  2. I agree 100%. Seems that the larger the car, the more the central design elements fit - kind of how the A8 front end looks better than the A4's.

  3. I do truly think this is one of the best looking luxury SUV's on the road...Thought Acura would make roof racks standard because the MDX looks bald without them...I also thought maybe a few taillamp changes might make it look a tad less long in the tooth...but why tweak something that still sells favorably-well in these economic conditions

  4. It's one of the ugliest suv on the planet

  5. $40k to $53k for a Acura? A Acura that looks like it hit every branch falling out of the ugly tree at that!

  6. w/ the TL on the decline this is arguably Acura's most successful product in its segment. The update makes it all the more competitive & the pricing is still a value compared to others.

  7. I'm impressed. I have owned three Lexus RXs and just purchased the Acura MDX. Having been a loyal Lexus customer for the past ten years, looking at any other vehicle proved to apprehensive. But after some due diligence I became very impressed with the Acura MDX. I feel confident with its reliability and performance. The amenities are satisfactory with compact choices and reasonable pricing. I'm sure to enjoy my new Acrua MDX.
