2014 Acura MDX luxury crossover Drive Review and Road Test

Check out my other videos! http://vid.io/xqoB Who is Alex? Find out here! http://vid.io/xqoF You'd be forgiven for thinking little has changed by just glancing at the MDX, and that's the way Acura shoppers like it we're told. That statement makes me scratch my head just a little because the 2014 model still sports the Acura "beak," the most controversial style decision Acura has ever made. Admittedly Acura has toned down the proboscis just a little from last year with less chrome and a more upright hood that accentuates the toothy smile a little less. We do have to keep this in perspective however: nothing about the MDX is overdone, the only reason anyone complained about the beak in the first place is that Acura has long been known for conservative design cues. This love for conservative, evolutionary design is why the MDX is instantly identifiable as an Acura despite riding on an all-new MDX-exclusive platform and sharing little beyond some transmission parts with the outgoing model. Yep, you heard that right, the MDX is no longer platform buddies with the Accord, et al., although it still builds off of Honda's structural design portfolio. Bringing the MDX's signature shape up-to-date we have standard full-LED headlamps which (if I am not mistaken) will make the MDX the least expensive vehicle on the road with the snazzy beams. Since we only had a limited time with the car in the day I can't say how they perform at night, but the color temperature of the lamps is a pleasing neutral color rather than the harsh blue light some LED lamps are known for. While Acura is gettin' jiggy with the LEDs up front, the rear continues to use regular old incandescent lamps. Probably leaving Acura something to swap for a mid-cycle refresh. Acura continues to stick to their formula of traditional injection molded dashboards and plenty of convincing fake wood. I would be interested to hear your opinions on this choice, so be sure to sound off in the comment section below. While i like the look and the materials are premium in feel, it can't match the visual impact or feel of a stitched leather/pleather dash, something that the refreshed Buick Enclave does incredibly well. The MDX continues to do have a very uniform feel with perfect seams and gaps and a consistent quality level throughout, something that Buick's CUV continues to struggle with (the lower dash and door plastics in the Enclave are still a bit cheap.) The MDX's front and middle thrones still sport the Acura hallmark "Lady Gaga horny shoulders," a design cue frequently imitated but never duplicated to the same effect. Like Lexus and Infiniti, Acura still hasn't discovered seats that more in more than the same basic 8-10 ways as any $25,000 family sedan. Despite having only half the "ways" as BMW's sport seats, I find the MDX's redesigned thrones to be among the most comfortable in the segment for my body shape. The flip side of that is that I'm a statistical "average American male" at six-feet and 185, so if you deviate from the "norm" you may find the seats less to your tastes due to the lack of adjustibility. For 2014 Acura has swapped out the tried-and-true 3.7L V6 for their latest V6. The 3.5L "Earth Dreams" V6 trades displacement for direct-injection and "Variable Cylinder Management" which allow the V6 to drop to a 3-cylinder mode on the highway. To quell the inevitable 3-cylinder vibrations, the MDX score's Honda's unique active engine mounts which generate vibrations opposite to what the engine produces to cancel them out. (Think Bose noise cancelling headphones.) Despite the DI treatment, power is down from 300HP to 290 and torque takes a small drop from 270 to 267 lb-ft as well. The power reduction is all in the name of efficiency however since this is the same engine that Acura drops under the hood of the 310 horse RLX sedan. To counter the power loss, Acura spent considerable time shedding weight with the MDX dropping a significant 275lbs in the redesign. The weight loss and improved low end torque (thanks to the direct-injection) mean that performance is up even with the power down. We weren't able to verify this however since we didn't have an appropriate track to perform 0-60 testing, so be sure to check back when we get our hands on an MDX for a week.

Competitors: Mercedes ML, BMW X5, Audi Q7, Infiniti QX60 What Camerons Car Reviews has to say about the MDX: Wow MDX you were born in 2001 and now look at you, you're all grown up. Now in it's third generation for 2014 the Acura MDX continues to aim at the crossover luxury SUV buyers. The MDX was slightly getting outdated as new fresh competition was already out and this body style has been out since 2007. Power in the MDX comes in Acura's familiar and reliable 3.5 L V6 made into a 6-Speed Automatic with All wheel drive being available. On the interior of the MDX everything feels quite familiar in Acura's new design layout which doesn't disappoint and looks less cluttered with buttons this time around, however it might take some time to get used to. On the exterior you will find it to be much like the Acura's RLX notably on the front end with the LED jewel headlights which really clean and crisp and the whole car looks very much like an Acura. As far as the ride goes it's a nice clean and quiet ride and you will find it to be extremely comfortable. If you're looking to haul a family around in the MDX it won't disappoint, however make sure you only put children or small sized adults in the third row as space can get cramped. Cargo capacity can be an annoyance when the third row is up as the MDX limits with trunk space behind the third row, however with the third row being folded down cargo won't disappoint. Compared to it's competitors the BMW X5, Infiniti QX60, Audi Q7, and the Mercedes ML you will find that the MDX is a very nice luxury SUV that is pretty much in top of the class and should definitely be put on the test drive list if you're looking for a luxury crossover.

5,000hp Devel Sixteen - Crazy V16 Hypercar with 560km/h Top Speed
Crazy doesn't even come close, here's the Devel Sixteen, revealed at the 2013 Dubai International Motor Show. The car claims a bonkers 5,000bhp offering a top speed of 560km/h, 0-100km/h in just 1.8s via a machine that looks like a Lamborghini Veneno crossed with Pagani Zonda and Koenigsegg. What do you make of the claims? Are they wildly optimistic or is something like this possible? The car was revealed here in front of the Crown Prince of Dubai who showed some interest in what exactly it was all about by taking a look inside and out.

Competitors: Cadillac XTS, BMW 5 Series, Lexus GS, Mercedes E Class What Camerons Car Reviews has to say about the RLX: Some people say "Finally!" as to meaning Acura finally as a decent flagship on their hands replacing the terribly outdated RL. The new RLX now features more technology that's worth noting and the seats are very comfortable in the RLX feeling silky smooth like a Lexus. Acura's new signature jewel LED Headlights are also a new first to Acura and it should lure some buyers in. Compare to the new Cadillac XTS, they are both great cars however the XTS will offer better technology and the Acura will be the reliability king as well as the resale value king, A V8 is not available under the hood as well as the RLX does not offer Real Wheel Drive. Power comes from a 3.5 L V6 with 6-Speed Automatic with a Hybrid coming later this year. All in all great car from Acura.
