2010 Acura MDX Review
The Acura MDX, or Honda MDX as known in Japan and Australia, is a mid-size crossover SUV produced by the Japanese automaker Acura since the 2001 model year.
The MDX is the first crossover SUV to have third-row seating. It is related to the Honda Pilot.
The alphanumeric moniker stands for “Multi-Dimensional luXury”. It is built by Honda of Canada Manufacturing Ltd. in Alliston, Ontario, Canada. It was introduced in late 2000 as a 2001 model, replacing the slow-selling U.S.-only body-on-frame SLX, based on the Isuzu Trooper.
In Japan, it filled a gap when the Honda Horizon (also based on the Trooper) was discontinued in 1999. In 2003, the Honda MDX went on sale in Japan and Australia. Australian MDXs were all equipped with the 2001-2003 Touring ‘Kiwi’ style wheels and were all equipped with the Rear-Seat DVD entertainment system. Acura is currently creating a crossover to slot above the MDX.
