10. Acura MDX
Though the 2014 Acura MDX is the model that received the Top Safety Pick+ rating from the IIHS, Acura has recently announced that the 2015 model year is now available. Since it’s a carry over model, it’s likely that the 2015 MDX will also receive a Top Safety Pick+ rating. As for pricing, the luxury SUV starts at $43,460 including destination and in front-wheel drive form gets an EPA estimated 20-mpg city, 28-mpg highway rating. Available with the company’s Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) for $2,000 additional, that model gets 18 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. The Acura MDX is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine with 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque.
