Christian Wardlaw Test Drive Review:

Slowly but surely, Acura is picking itself up and dusting itself off after a decade of wayward product development and marketing decisions took Honda’s luxury division off-track. Throu...

Exciting to drive and feel—“like a sports car”. Distinctive and very advanced from prior Acura’s—really steppe...
Value Ranked 2019 BMW X3 sDrive30i RWD worse.
"To me they are very competetive in handling, luxury, and power. The RDX is a little more adrenaline inducing and the x3 a little more refined."
Would Buy Ranked 2019 BMW X3 sDrive30i RWD better.
"We did just buy a RWD 2019 x3, loaded with features, although we really liked the RDX a lot. The difference was a little more refined feel and the dealer was fantastic, extremely customer friendly. offered great extras—free servicing for 3,000 miles, and unlimited car washes, and was willing to take some $4,000 off MSRP. and was in our local area. Acura not willing to negotiate, apparently because the 2019 is a brand new and upgraded model from the 2018–although very friendly."

Very nice, comfortable SUV.
Front Seats Ranked 2019 Audi Q7 3.0T quattro Prestige AWD better.
"The Audi front seats seemed to be a bit more comfortable and more supportive than the MDX"
Would Buy Ranked 2019 Audi Q7 3.0T quattro Prestige AWD better.
"The Audi seemed to be more solid, quite and responsive than the Acura MDX."
writes:
Back Seats Ranked 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class GLS 450 better.
"Third row seat in MB is big enough for adults; the MDX is for small children only."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class GLS 450 better.
"The rear storage room of the GLS is way bigger than the MDX."
