Changes to the interior are more substantial with the MDX adopting a lower, sleeker dash that provides excellent visibility out the front.

Thanks to a wheelbase that's been stretched nearly 3 inches, the MDX's second- and third-row seats are more spacious than before.

Working with the V6 is a new 10-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel-drive models return an EPA-estimated 19 miles per gallon in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.
