...A five-speed automatic transmission is standard, and it helps the MDX earn an EPA mileage estimate of 17 city/23 highway. Power travels to all four wheels through Acura's Variable Torque Management (VTM) full-time four-wheel-drive system. Tow capacity is 3,500 pounds. Safety: The MDX comes standard with four-wheel antilock disc brakes, seat-mounted side airbags for front occupants, head-protecting side curtain airbags, a tire-pressure monitoring system, stability control and three-point seatbelts in every position.

Redesign for 2007!)Most buyers of this vehicle opt for the Touring trim. Drivers like the navigation and DVD entertainment systems which are available with that trim.

The center and rear seats fold flat into the floor to create additional cargo space. Cargo volume measures 81.5 cubic feet when the second- and third-row seats are folded flat.

With the third seat in place, the MDX has just 14.8 cubic feet of cargo space, about what you would find in a compact car. With the third seat folded, that space expands to 49.6 cubic feet; and with the second and third rows folded, there is 81.5 cubic feet of cargo space. The MDX has been given the highest possible safety ratings in frontal crash tests conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. It scored five stars for both driver- and front-passenger safety. The MDX already had...
