After the new car, I was left with a question.
Is it the car I would want?
Or is it a car that could use a few more modifications?
With the MDX, I knew that if I wanted a Cadillac I had to know the interior.
I’d also have to understand the cars history.
At the time of its debut, the new Acura was the first major crossover in the world.
It was the product of a company that had been building crossover sedans for a decade.
In its first five years, the company had produced more than 200 cars, but it was only a handful when it debuted in 2021.
The Acura is still a relatively new name for a crossover, but for all the time the company has been making them, it was the model that had the most crossover appeal for me.
I remember being in the Acuras sales office with my brother and sister-in-law, who were all about the Acurans, and we were looking at the new MDX.
As we got closer to the car, it seemed that the new model would be the car of the year.
We were looking forward to a better interior and more room, but in my mind I wanted the new one, too.
My family has always been about cars, and my mom always said that cars were her favorite thing.
I love cars, so it made sense that the Acuuras interior would be my favorite, too!
The first thing I noticed was the leather upholstery.
The MDX is all about interior design.
It’s very upscale.
There are a lot of little details that are very subtle, but they really matter to the buyer.
When I saw the leather and the chrome accents on the new seats, I couldn’t help but think of my mother and father.
They both have leather seats and it’s really the only thing that gives them that comfort.
Another highlight was the new headliner.
It is completely redesigned.
I had never seen anything like it, but that’s the way I like it.
I like the look of the front end.
The black leather has a bit of a black stripe on it and it is very much in line with the rest of the Acumas interior.
All of the interior has been updated, and the center stack is completely revamped.
It has a new look, which is great.
The whole interior feels a bit more upscale, which I love.
The seats are a little more comfortable and the new leather accents are great.
On the inside, there is a lot to like about the new design.
There is more of a sculptural feel to the instrument panel and the stitching on the doors.
I loved the way the seat belts were integrated into the seats.
They feel very secure and comfortable.
There also are more options to change the lighting.
You can get a great look at the interior by watching a video.
It looks like it will be the perfect way to relax and enjoy the drive, especially if you’re on the road.
Overall, I’m really impressed with the interior of the new 2017 Acura.
It is so much more luxurious than any other car I’ve ever driven.
There aren’t many other crossover cars with that many interior choices.
One thing that really impressed me is the sound.
I have always loved the sound of a Cadillac, and this is a very high-end sound system.
I didn’t think it would be that big of a deal.
It sounds great.
There’s also very little distortion, which makes it even more enjoyable to drive.
For me, the highlight is the audio system.
It reminds me of a vintage Voodoo.
The speaker cabinets are made of real wood and they feel incredibly well balanced.
There isn’t a single bass or treble sound, and I like that about this system.
There are a few minor things I’d like to see.
For one, there are three audio outlets on the dash, which would be nice.
They also look really good, which means they will get used by lots of people.
Finally, there’s a very good infotainment system.
The navigation system is very good and is the one that makes the Acurus unique.
If I was going to buy a new car and had to choose between a luxury sedan and a crossover I would definitely choose the crossover.
