NVH/ Road Noise Comparisons
I have been doing quite a bit of research, and have finally zoomed in on MDX as the best handling, 7 seater SUV in case of emergency SUV. I would like to call myself a car enthusiast, and care a great deal about performance and handling, but cant sacrifice a quite ride for that. Purely based on research I have heard some negative feedback from consumer reports about MDX road noise, of course consunerreports tends to say all hondas suffer from road noise, but I have no way of testing that. I currently own an 07 BMW 530i. The reviews threw me off a little, I obviosly dont want to spend 50k on a noisy ride. I just wanted to confirm based on enthusiast feedback how true are the rumors about road noise creeping the cabin, a good engine roar or a hum is always welcome, any actual data comparing the roadnoise levels would be even better. Also, I am wondering how good is the adaptive suspension (sport suspension) is controlling actual body roll in this car. Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
My other choices are in no particular order, audi q5, mazda cx9 and porsche cayenne base manual.
