As far as volume goes, SUV's is where it's at, I think that's where they have most sales happening right now. So that being the case I guess it makes sense to further strengthen them. Still, those sedans need some work... only one that seems to be doing well is the TLX.

That is a understandable thought given the state of the market, but Acura has said that they are going to concentrate on sedans next. It's straight from the horse's mouth.

Quote:
Acura General Manager Jon Ikeda has said sedans are a priority that his team is working on right now. The first peek at what exactly this means could come as early as January's Detroit auto show.

"We've struggled, candidly, with sedans," Mendel said. Though the recent success of the TLX has been encouraging, he said, the flagship RLX needs fixing.

If anyone wants a matching crossover, the 2017 MDX will start at $43,950 and it'll come with the AcuraWatch safety suite. For a fully loaded all-wheel-drive, V-6 MDX you'll be paying $58,400.

While Acura does well with SUV's and CUV's (some of their best selling), I rather go the Toyota/Lexus route since the off-road capabilities really appeal to me, then of course you have all the luxury and technology to go with it.

You should be able to take the MDX onto dirt toads too, nothing extreme but it should be able to handle the same terrain as Toyota/Lexus SUV. What makes you dismiss the MDX?

They are probably more affordable depending on the trim and features you add but the MDX seems to have it all, fuel efficiency and amazing interior with 3 rows of seats.

I guess it depends on which Toyota and Lexus models you are looking at for comparison. The 2017 MDX starts from $43,950 and there are Toyota/Lexus SUVs and CUVs that are cheaper but you won't be getting the same interior seating or features.

You can, you can take an NSX off road but should you? I have no confidence in taking the MDX off road in the sort of conditions that you see people pushing the Lexus LX into which is quite extreme. Do research on the LX/Land Cruiser and you'll see how capable it is.
