2015 Acura MDX vs 2015 Acura RDX: Which is Better for You?

February 10th, 2015 by

You might be surprised to find out just how many drivers make the trip to a Chicagoland Acura Dealer thinking that there’s a definitive winner when comparing the 2015 Acura MDX vs the 2015 Acura RDX. The truth is that they are both excellent luxury crossovers with quite a bit in common, but it’s their differences that will let you know which one might better suit your needs.

Are You Just Starting a Family?

If you are just starting a family or don’t expect that you’ll need a luxury crossover with seating for more than five people, the 2015 Acura RDX might be the right choice for you. Sleek and stylish, the RDX handles like a mid-size sedan while providing the spacious interior that has made crossovers one of the most popular family vehicles on the market.

Under the hood of each RDX is a 273-hp V6 engine, and 2015 RDX models with front-wheel drive earn an EPA-estimated highway fuel economy of 28 mpg,* making this crossover one of the most efficient vehicles of its kind.

Acura’s smaller crossover is also affordably priced, starting at just $35,095 (MSRP).**

Do You Need Three Rows of Seating?

The biggest reason many of our Chicago drivers choose the 2015 Acura MDX is its spacious interior with three rows of seating. It can be difficult to find a luxury crossover these days that even has a third row of seating available, but the MDX makes sure that full-size adults are comfortable back there too. With seating for up to seven, Acura’s larger crossover is a smart choice for the growing family.

Like the RDX, this model has a 290-hp V6 engine under the hood, and 2015 MDX models with front-wheel drive earn an EPA-estimated 28 highway mpg* (see what we said about them having a lot in common).

Because the MDX offers significantly more space than the RDX, it will handle a bit more like the larger vehicle it is; the 2015 MDX is priced starting at $42,565 (MSRP).**
