You have two great options when shopping for a new Acura SUV: the 2023 Acura MDX premium performance SUV and the 2023 Acura RDX premium sport crossover. So how will you choose? The difference is in the details.

Size and Power

The Acura MDX has a higher starting MSRP because it is larger and more powerful. It has three rows of seating to fit seven people comfortably. In addition, it boasts 95 cubic feet of cargo volume and a highly impressive 5,000 pounds of max towing capacity.

Some people don’t need that much space or power. The Acura RDX can still seat five people and tow up to 1,500 pounds while having a smaller and more streamlined profile. Both SUVs are available in forward-wheel drive or super handling all-wheel drive. For speed lovers, the Acura MDX offers a power-packed Type S trim option with a 3.0-liter turbo V6.

Safety Features

Both SUVs offer an impressive list of driver-assistive technologies. Some are available on upgraded trims, but the vast majority come standard.

  • Lane Keeping Assist System
  • Pedestrian Detection
  • Traffic Sign Recognition
  • Road Departure Cruise Control
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System
  • Adaptive Cruise Control

Versatile and Premium Interiors

The Acura RDX delivers nearly 80 feet of max cargo volume, even with a smaller profile. In addition, without the third row of seats, there is room for a clever underfloor storage compartment. Combine the underfloor storage and the ability for the 60/40 split rear seats to fold, and you’ll have plenty of room for any adventure.

Both SUVs offer a premium cabin experience by using high-quality, authentic materials. Both come standard with an expansive panoramic moonroof. And finally, both offer deluxe upgrades such as full-grain leather trim and ambient cabin lighting.
