The 2014 Acura MDX is a Better Value than Audi’s 2014 Q7

October 23rd, 2013 by

If you’re looking at luxury SUVs like the 2014 Audi Q7, price is almost certainly a concern, and as Chicagoland Acura Dealers, we are familiar with the concept of affordable luxury vehicles. So it gives us great pride to say that the 2014 Acura MDX costs less than the 2014 Q7, while offering drivers a substantial value.

Let’s take a look at just what you can get when you sit in the driver’s seat of a new MDX.

Acura Offers More for Less

There are not many phrases we love hearing more than “more for less.” It’s great for you—you’re getting something extra while also saving money—and it’s great for us, as it reaffirms our belief in Acura as one of the best luxury car producers in the world. Truly a win-win, except perhaps for the Audi Q7.

Not only does the standard 2014 MDX come in at over $4,000 less than the Audi Q7, but when comparably equipped, the vehicles are separated by over $10,000. What would you do with an MDX and an extra $10,000?

What’s more, though, is that the MDX has a greater residual value—According to ALG, the 2014 MDX will retain 60% of its value after 36 months while the Q7 will only keep 58%.

For added confidence, too, the Acura warranty covers the vehicle’s powertrain for 72 months or 70,000 miles; drivers of the Q7 only have powertrain coverage for 48 months or 50,000 miles.

Here are just a few of the features of the MDX that you will be expected to pay extra for on the Q7, if they are even available:

  • Rear climate control
  • Multiple memory adjustable driver-side systems (including headlights, steering wheel, and seat)
  • Power moonroof
  • Universal garage door opener
  • Rearview camera system
  • Telematics
