How Does the 2014 Audi Q7 Compare on Horsepower?

February 13th, 2014 by

Chicago drivers need to get the most out of their family vehicles, and that means when you look at a vehicle like the 2014 Audi Q7, horsepower should at least be something that’s on your mind, even if it’s not the first thing.

But when it comes to power, affordability, and equipment, we think that you’d do better with the 2014 Acura MDX. Available now at Chicagoland Acura Dealers, let’s take a look at how the MDX compares to the Q7 on power and more.

More Power and More Efficiency

Would you believe that you can get an engine with both more power and more efficiency? Acura engineering has made it so. The 2014 MDX 6-Spd AT with front wheel drive gets an EPA-estimated 28 highway mpg* and offers up 290 hp, letting you pass and merge with ease.

If you opt for the Audi, you’ll only be able to get up to 280 hp, and your fuel efficiency will take a pretty heavy drop down to 22 highway mpg. That’s not all that the Acura has going for it, though.

Not only is the Acura engine more powerful and more efficient, but it’s under warranty for longer as well. The MDX has a powertrain warranty of 72 months or 70,000 miles, giving you peace of mind longer than Audi’s 48-month/50,000-mile coverage.

When you add in all of the features that come standard on the MDX—rear heating and air conditioning controls, driver memory adjustments, a power moonroof, and more—it seems clear to us which makes for the better SUV.

The 2014 Acura MDX is a vehicle that can really only be experienced from behind the wheel, and we invite you to visit a Chicagoland Acura Dealer today and take one for a spin. Even if the MDX isn’t quite for you, we think that there’s an Acura for practically every driver.
