Looks really good.. What is it? The Pomegranate Pearl from the RLX?







All in All looks really good. I wish the belt line a had a few degrees of slop to it (like the RDX's) and that the rear shoulder hump had more of a pronounced look to it like in the ILX, other wise the front end looks good. The Grill is still a tad too big and the Chrome trims in the fake Air intakes could use some Audi LED DRL love. I'm gonna miss the DRL's on the MDX BTW. And I think we wont be seeing any more separate fog light housings form Acura other then on the lower class cars (ILX, TSX/ TLX RDX) for a while. And then their are the missing exhaust tips.. sigh guess we better get used to not having them.

I hope it sales well for Acura, after all this IS their bread and butter vehical and looks like they just switched from country crock to can't believe its not butter. Lets hope no one belives or notices it.

The odd 290HP and 267LB-FT numbers still bother the F* out of me. It wouldn't bother me if that was for the FWD model only and we got 310/ 275LB-FT in the SH-AWD.

Maybe Neal and Jeff can dyno the RLX and MDX soon enough to tell weather or not the new DI ED engines out do their listed ratings like the Accord's J35 and K24 does.

If the MDX and RLX out perform their stated ratings then I can rest easy. haha.

I agree. They did a really good job with the redesign. They didnt go overboard with ruining a good product and improved in a few key areas, performance, space, and fuel economy.
What is bothering me is the fact that the lower max horsepower/torque rating is bothering people. Who Fucking cares!!!! its faster and more fuel efficient. what more do you want!
the new engine improves power available through out the entire revs vs getting a higher output in a smaller rev band. its almost comparable to a marathon runner vs sprinter in a race. The sprinter may achieve a faster speed but can only get it for a brief period of time vs the marathon runner.
the end is result is what matters and the MDX delivers.

Looks good... we need less grayscale in Acura.

While the exterior could do with a bit more aggression, it's well sorted IMO.

Those headlights look edgy and well integrated into the design compared to the tacky RLX's.

I have a feeling that red and blue are going to be the only "color" you can get on an MDX. Unless maybe the '13 RDX "Brownstone" comes over.
