What are the Best Luxury SUVs of 2014?

February 8th, 2014 by

While the “best” luxury SUVs of 2014 are going to vary from driver to driver, we think that there’s a pretty reasonable consensus when you look around that the 2014 Acura MDX and 2014 Acura RDX are both models that deserve some extra attention.

Let’s take a closer look at each of these SUVs and figure out which one might make a great addition to your family.

The 2014 MDX

Built to be one of the smartest vehicles in its class, the MDX was reinvented from the ground up for 2014 and is getting all of the attention from critics and drivers. An elegant vehicle designed with modern families in mind, you get power, comfort, and a spacious and versatile interior.

In short, you get an amazing luxury SUV with room for seven.

As if that weren’t enough, Acura engineers have developed an incredible powertrain, getting 290 hp out of the i-VTEC V6. And the EPA-estimated fuel economy for the 2014 MDX 6-Spd AT with front wheel drive is 28 mpg on the highway.*

The 2014 RDX

Looking for something a bit smaller than the MDX? Then you want the RDX! Imagine getting the spaciousness and versatility of a full-size SUV with the handling and comfort of a sedan. That’s what Acura designers brought to us with the RDX.

This five-passenger SUV is great for families on the go, getting 273 hp from its V6. As with the MDX, it’s an efficient vehicle too: the 2014 RDX 6-Spd AT with front wheel drive gets an EPA-estimated 28 mpg on the highway.*

Choosing between the MDX and RDX is not usually an easy choice. Unless you know you’ll need more than the five seats of the RDX, that is. They are both incredible, affordable luxury SUVs, and the best way to decide for yourself is with a test drive.
