      Great review. After driving my 2018 MDX Hybrid for 4 months I think this video review is Spot On. Button shifter does take getting use to. This MDX is super smooth with loads of power and a great ride. I use Android Auto for navigation and have found it is fairly straight forward just takes little time to get use to.

      There is nothing about this vehicle that would make me want to own one. As usual, good review though.

      there are probably 3 trillion people out there on the Intertubes reviewing cars now. I really enjoy all of your reviews Sam, definite Top 5 channel on my subscribed list. I appreciate your style and how you cover everything concisely, without droning on and on yet being thorough and being appropriately opinionated. And when I am considering crossovers and 4WD vehicles, your off-highway thoughts and footage are definite must see. Thanks Sam!!! Keep it up buddy.

      The interior is a dated but I was able to look pass it since the driving dynamics are above average for a $60k 7 passenger SUV. If your looking for a mid tier or above luxury interior this car isnt for you. The 7speed DCT is amazing, torque vectoring does wonders and the hybrid power is emazing

      I couldn't agree more. The torque vectoring and the magnetic damper are amazing.

      Sam..I do like your "new" format of the videos...You talking to the camera more and less focus on "stars"..great job...I would recommend though you keep your summary screen at the end...Price/fuel/safety info was very handy. Overall I did the vehicle, especially the interior. The wood especially pops on camera, specifically on the part behind the cupholders. I do like the exterior although the wheels are meh...they seem a bit small and the black not my color...would rather see anthracite myself. Question...you didn't comment on the auto stop/start...does that "feature" occur on hybrids? Great review and glad to see you back.

      Yes it does have auto start stop but it's expected with a hybrid. Unlike a traditional gas vehicle, you have electric motivation when the engine is off so its not a big issue.

      Decent styling and value, $60k is not abnormal in today’s vehicle dollar market and you are fully loaded, 3rd row seating with cubic cargo capacity. Many of the import sedans are in the same range (I know maybe apples to oranges)

      Or maybe you are reading way to much into the fact that Acura simply gave us a red car with black wheels.

      Rear electric motors shut off at 78 mph then you have a 249 horsepower suv.

      Phoenix is in the desert. If you are referring to off-road testing, this isn't what this SUV is all about.

      That transmission button setup and two screen climate control/entertainment double makes it a no go. And you better lease, this is no Toyota, awful lot of new tech, particularly the transmission

      Hybrid tech is nothing new. Toyota and Honda have proven that hybrid powertrains can be very reliable. And their shawd is nothing new either. I wouldn't be too worried

      You didn't think to mention the horrendous navigation graphics? I could get used to the dual screen layout, but the 2002 nav display has got to go.

      It's true...they are pretty bad. I have a TLX - the infotainment and its lack of modernism is probably the main reason I want a new car!

      Thankfully Acura has a new system, but it's only on the newest rdx. They definitely need to get it on all their models

      Sam, you have the best vehicle reviews but, $59,000 is not a great value.

      Acura Addicted Buy a Loaded Chevy Equinox with a four cylinder. It may not be as exciting as this car, but it will save you money. If you are worried about reliability for the Chevy, buy an extended warranty! Of course you should buy what you want but some of these cars are getting way too expensive.
