The 2021 Acura MDX Might Be the Luxury SUV You’ve Been Waiting for

If there is one thing we know about luxury SUVs, it’s that they don’t always get better with time. A lot of the luxury brands are always striving to outperform and out design their competitors. In the process, they produce cars better than their previous generations, meaning that the newest luxury car typically outdoes the generation before it. This couldn’t be any more true for the new 2021 Acura MDX SUV, and if you’ve been waiting for the perfect luxury SUV, this might be what you’ve been looking for.

The Acura MDX isn’t as popular

The Acura brand isn’t as popular as many other luxury options. This works to the buyer’s benefits in many ways. For a higher-end luxury SUV priced around $50,000, they aren’t incredibly popular, which means it’s a lot more unique of an option. Some people that like to stand out might just select the Acura option to have something different from a sea of BMW and Audi SUVs. Its unique styling doesn’t make it bad, either, and the sharp front fascia is just as good looking as the competition.

A truly luxurious interior

You might not think of Acura when listing luxury SUV brands, but the 2021 Acura MDX will change your mind. The spacious and comfortable interior won’t leave you uncomfortable if you take it for a scenic family road trip for hours or make a long drive soccer tournament. Combining roomy rear seats with plenty of trunk space and you won’t have to worry about feeling cramped. The front-seat passenger and driver can appreciate the ease of the infotainment system, as well as all of the standard safety features that will enhance your driving experience.

Performance to match

The 2021 Acura MDX isn’t just about luxury, it’s practical and powerful as well. Between drivetrain options, you will find a sporty naturally-aspirated 3.5-liter V6 engine or a slightly smaller 3.0-liter enhanced by a turbocharger. No matter which engine option you pick you can appreciate the vehicle’s all-weather-ready all-wheel drive. Perfect no matter what climate you live in, and although you could probably get away with off-roading it, you probably wouldn’t want to.
