The biggest news for the 2018 model year, though, is a redesigned infotainment system.

The infotainment system still sports a complicated and occasionally annoying two-screen setup, but there's a new 7-inch capacitive touchscreen with a 30-percent improvement in response time.

Safety fans will be happy that the MDX comes standard with AcuraWatch, Acura's suite of passive and active safety systems.
