Is the 2013 Acura MDX a Safe Car?

The 2013 Acura MDX features numerous standard active safety technologies that help reduce the risk of collision, including Vehicle Stability Assist, Electronic Brake Distribution and Brake Assist. Included in the optional Advance Package is the Collision Mitigation Braking System, which alerts the driver to potential collision situations and activates the brakes if the system determines a collision is imminent.

Along with the rest of the Acura lineup, the MDX has Acura's exclusive Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure technology, which is designed to enhance occupant protection, particularly in frontal crashes. ACE's network of connected, high-strength structures distributes crash energy evenly over the front of the vehicle. This reduces the force transferred to the passenger compartment and can also even out forces transferred to other vehicles in a crash. So the MDX is designed to keep its own passengers safe as well as passengers in the vehicles around it.

2013 Acura MDX vs the competition

Audi Q7: Pricing for the 2013 Q7 starts around $46,000. The base Q7 is not as powerful as the MDX, but the Q7 does come standard with Audi's celebrated Quattro all-wheel-drive, one of the best systems on the market today.

BMW X5: Starting at $47,500, the X5 carries one of the most expensive base sticker prices in this category. Yet the X5 remains one of the top sellers in the segment. With an 8-speed automatic transmission and a smaller engine, the base X5 xDrive35i gets 16 mpg city and 23 mpg highway, better than the MDX. The diesel-powered X5 xDrive35d gets 19/26 mpg.

Volvo XC90: Volvo's big luxury SUV starts at $39,500, but you'll have to fork over an extra $2,000 for optional all-wheel drive. If you don't need the added traction, save the money and stick with the more fuel-efficient front-wheel drive version.

AutoTrader Recommends

Acura offers many wonderful options on the MDX, but these packages can quickly cause the sticker price to skyrocket, turning a $43,000 SUV into a $53,000 SUV. You'll be just as happy - and save a lot - if you stick with the base model
