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.

It supports both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

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

The base powertrain is a 3.5-liter V6 good for 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque, mated to the buyer's choice of front-wheel or all-wheel drive.
