As you consider your next luxury SUV in Sioux Falls, the Acura MDX should be on your shortlist. While you shop, we bring you a side by side comparison of the Acura MDX vs. Audi Q7. The Acura MDX will surely turn heads when you drive in Sioux Falls with the three-row luxury SUV. Driving an Audi Q7 isn’t too shabby, either, but when compared head-to-head against Acura’s 3rd-row SUV we know you’ll see why the new Acura MDX comes out on top.
Starting with what comes standard on board the Acura MDX vs. Audi Q7, we outlined all the areas where the new MDX comes out on top:
When comparing horsepower, the MDX’s standard V6 engine produces a total of 290 hp versus the Q7’s 252 hp. Having more power means you’ll be able to accelerate more efficiently from a stop and you’ll also have more towing strength.
Paired with this impressive horsepower is the MDX’s equally remarkable fuel economy. To help improve fuel efficiency, the MDX has an engine control system that is capable of shutting down half of the engine’s cylinders, a feature missing on the Q7. The MDX also reduces pollution with its capless fueling system. No gas cap means you don’t have to unscrew anything when you fill up at the pump; the fuel filler automatically opens when a nozzle is inserted and closes when it’s removed. Here are the fuel economy results from the EPA test cycle:
City: 19 MPG
Highway: 25 MPG
City: 19 MPG
Highway: 26 MPG
City: 26 MPG
Highway: 27 MPG
Being smaller and weighing less gives you an advantage in the world of motorized vehicles, and the MDX proves this by being more efficient and having better acceleration and handling than the Audi Q7 because it weighs about 600 to 700 pounds less. It’s also shorter by about 3.5 inches which makes parking in tight spaces a breeze. When comparing both cabins, the MDX is significantly quieter due to the computer-generated active noise canceling technology. This removes excess noise and vibrations from the passenger side of the vehicle, and it’s another feature the Q7 doesn’t have. A test conducted by Car and Driver deduced that the MDX interior produces 36 decibels and the Q7, 43 decibels.
