5) 2018 Acura MDX

Base Price: $44,200

Overview (U.S. News Overall Score: 8.4/10): Acura’s MDX is efficient, smooth and comfortable, and has easy handling. Additionally, the MDX has a good mix of standard and optional features. Though the MDX is a solid value, several key competitors offer more to choosy families.

Safety (U.S. News Score: 9.7/10): The MDX’s crash test scores should reassure anxious parents, with a five-star overall rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and all Good scores from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Standard safety features include a rearview camera, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, road departure mitigation, forward collision warning, and automatic emergency braking.

Reliability (U.S. News Score: 2.5/5): The 2018 hasn’t been rated for reliability yet, but the mechanically similar 2017 model has. It earned a score of 2.5 out of a possible five, which means that J.D. Power has identified this model as having below-average reliability. However, with one notable exception, this score is the norm for this class.
