Acura Goes Toe-to-Toe with the Lexus RX

June 11th, 2013 by

When it comes to luxury autos, Chicagoland drivers are likely pretty aware of the many different brands that are available, but few can come close to what Acura offers in the realm of amenities, practicality, and affordability. When it comes to luxury crossover vehicles, there is a reason that the Acura MDX is a go-to choice for many drivers, and the 2014 MDX (pictured) looks to be comfortable taking on the competing Lexus RX.

Why Drivers Choose Acura

If you haven’t driven an Acura before, you might be wondering just what it is that sets the MDX apart from the RX, and while we encourage you to take a test drive, we’ll give you some tips as to what it is that makes the MDX such a standout crossover. One of the biggest perks may not seem immediately obvious, but it is well-appreciated by families: a third row of seating.

It surprises us to find vehicles trying to compete with the MDX that don’t offer three rows of seating, and yet here we are. If you don’t need that extra row of seating, of course, you can always fold it down and increase your cargo capacity, but having the option to seat up to seven is incredibly helpful, especially when the kids start playing sports or wanting you to take their friends along when the family heads somewhere.

Consumer Reports has praised the MDX for improving overall ride quality and cabin noise levels as well as improving fuel economy with the help of electric steering. Available in the base model or in the SH-AWD trim, drivers will be able to customize the MDX to fit their needs without breaking the bank.

Some standard amenities on the MDX include:

  • Automatic LED headlamps
  • Tri-zone climate control
  • Twin console displays
  • Eight-speaker sound system
