2015 Acura MDX Real-World Cargo Space

IMG_2651

It's easy to blow a fuse while researching sometimes-confusing cargo specifications. Acura lists two maximum cargo specifications (68.4 cubic feet and 90.9 cubic feet) for the 2015 MDX — redesigned in 2014 — which are measured with a new standard not comparable with the previous generation's cargo specs. The maximum 90.9 cubic feet includes floor space between the first and second rows as well as the front seats slid forward. Read more about that here, but in practical use the 2015 Acura MDX continues to make good use of its cargo area no matter which cargo specification you look at.

With all rows folded, the cargo area is now at a uniform pitch instead of three separate angles like the previous generation. The MDX's third row folds in a split 50/50 configuration while the second row is 60/40, slides fore/aft 5.9 inches and reclines in five positions. There's also a large underfloor storage bin behind the third row that Acura says is large enough for folding bag-type chairs or two laptop computer cases. See how well common cargo items fit in the MDX below.

This is so amazing! You can actually use it and not worry about space when you happen to do Costco shopping. Such an amazing car.
