Acura RDX 2015 Vs Acura MDX 2015

The SUV vehicles from Acura definitely look great and are so comfortable. The top 2 models offered by Acura in the SUV market are definitely the MDX and the RDX so we do need to compare them for a better choice. If you do not know which one of these high-end vehicles will meet your personal requirements, here is what you have to know.

Exterior And Interior

Both SUVs include various modern features and suitable levels of luxury. The 2015 RDX and MDX bring in great features like power door-locks, moonroof and power windows. Headed front seats are included, just as satellite radio and leather wrapped steering wheel area. Acura MDX has some small advantages in the interior as there are 3 front power outlets while RDX just offers 2. At the same time, we see that the front passenger seat can be adjusted 8 ways as opposed to the Acura RDX\s 4 ways.

When looking at the exterior, both of the SUVs will come with body colored exterior mirrors, heated, speed sensing interval wipers, automatic headlights. The MDX only has a marginal edge due to the fact that a multi function remote operates the liftgate.

Engine Performance

Every single SUV buyer needs to look at the gas mileage and gas specs that are offered by the considered vehicle. The Acura RDX 2015 and the Acura MDX 2015 standardly equip the V6 3.5 L engine. MDX has a little more HP but we do see the same fuel economy in both of the SUVs: 20 in the city and 28 on the highway. The SUVs include front wheel drive. However, Acura MDX 2015 includes a bigger tank.


Size is definitely a really important factor to consider when you compare SUVs. The Acura MDX 2015 is definitely bigger, offering 7 seats as opposed to 5 on the RDX. The maximum cargo volume of the MDX is higher and even if the RDX does have an interesting advantage when looking at some of the interior dimensions like headroom and legroom, the MDX is not at all uncomfortable.



Both of the SUVs are impressive so choosing one over the other is definitely not a problem as choice is always subjective at the end of the day. However, if we are to choose one, we have to go for the Acura 2015 RDX 6 speeds automatic since it is a little better. Having said that, if you do like how the RDX looks more, you can easily go for it or choose it if you just need a 5 seater instead of a 7 seater.
