The all-new Acura MDX has been chosen as the winner of the 2014 Utility Vehicle of the Year Award.

Offering room for up to seven in a luxurious and stylish package the MDX outshone its competition offering more for less.

“It’s never an easy decision to give an award to a luxury car because they obviously come with top quality finishings and plenty of high-tech features, but what impressed us about the MDX is just what you get for your money,” said AutoGuide Editorial Director Colum Wood.

“It’s a true rarity to find a luxury vehicle that also offers value, but Acura has done just that.”

AutoGuide Road Test Editor Mike Schlee seconds that notion. “People always ask us, ‘what’s the best all-around vehicle,’” he said. “The 2014 Acura MDX is certainly one of them.”

The all-new 2014 Acura MDX is powered by a 290 hp 3.5L V6 engine that delivers up to 28 mpg on the highway. Pricing starts at $42,290.
