If you’re in the market for a new SUV, Acura gives you two great vehicles to choose from. While the three-row MDX can seat up to seven people, the five-passenger RDX is sized just right for the average family. Should you buy the 2019 Acura MDX or the 2019 Acura RDX?
Growing families will love the Acura MDX’s spacious accommodations. Everyone can look forward to experiencing a comfortable ride. While heated front seats come standard, front-seat ventilation is able on the upper trims.
All versions of the new MDX come loaded with popular features. An available 10-speaker ELS Studio premium audio system takes your music-listening experience to the next level. Meanwhile, your family will especially enjoy the optional rear entertainment system, which includes a 16.2-inch display screen. Most importantly, an AcuraWatch safety package comes standard.
You’ll love the Acura MDX’s powerful performance. Its 3.5-liter, i-VTEC V6 engine develops a muscular 290 horsepower. An EPA-estimated highway fuel economy rating of 27 mpg* makes the MDX an even more rewarding family hauler.
Super Handling All-Wheel Drive is available as an option. Not only does this dynamic AWD system improve wet-weather traction, but it also enables the MDX to deliver especially sporty handling.
Like the Acura MDX, the Acura RDX provides a lot of passenger room. It actually provides even more legroom for your second-row passengers. There are also some exciting technologies inside the new RDX. Acura’s all-new True Touchpad Interface with a 10.2-inch central display comes standard. You also have access to a dazzling 16-speaker ELS Studio 3D surround-sound system. A customizable head-up display is available as well.
When checking out the new Acura RDX, you’ll notice it shares many styling cues with the MDX. Jewel Eye LED headlamps and a standard tailgate spoiler accentuate the RDX’s sleek profile. Drivers who desire an especially sporty look will enjoy the racy A-Spec package, which is also available on the MDX. It outfits the SUV with high-performance exhaust outlets, unique 20-inch wheels, and a more aggressive front fascia.
Under the hood of the redesigned RDX sits a new turbocharged four-cylinder engine. It pushes out a satisfying 272 horsepower while returning up to 28 mpg*. You can also get the new RDX with Acura’s famed Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system.
