Even the base model, starting at $42,290, gets a long list of luxury features.
New standard equipment includes keyless access with push-button start, LED lighting inside and outside, and second-row seats with an extended slide length and one-touch operation to make it easy for third-row passengers to climb inside.
All those things combine to make it a great value, especially for a luxury SUV with three rows of seats. You'd have to pay $10,000 more for the BMW X5 or $20,000 more for a Mercedes-Benz GL, for example.
Considering the new MDX is more efficient, faster and has more technology than before — and comes with a base price that's $990 less than last year's MDX, to boot — it looks like one of the best luxury values on the market today.
