Okay, so I just got back from test driving the MDX. Of course, everything is relative, and I have not test driven any other vehicles yet, but, I see what skinny is saying about the acceleration. It is a bit underwhelming. I think my expectations weren't realistic though.
I'm 6' and I sat in the backseat, and yeah, it sure is cramped. I looked a bit ridiculous, it wasn't comfortable, bit it would do in a pinch. And I think y'all are right, in that smaller people and children would probably be perfectly fine back there.
While I was there, I checked out the latest RDX and the newly released RLX - they really do make the MDX tech feel a bit dated. The worst thing for me though, and perhaps this is sad, but...those front center cup holders... Shame on them... My wife's 2003 Honda Accord had cup holders that were 10x nicer than these. What's the deal?
The sound system was wonderful. It was extremely comfortable. Those seats were so soft, supple yet supportive. Very nice car... but... those cup holders?!?!
Thanks again for all of the info!
