The 2015 Acura MDX vs RDX: Which is Better for Detroit Drivers?

October 1st, 2014 by

2015 Acura MDX When you visit a Michigan Acura Dealer for one of our luxury crossovers, you’ve already made an excellent choice, but which of the luxury crossovers is right for you? In the choice between the 2015 Acura MDX vs the 2015 Acura RDX, there is only a right choice for you, as an individual driver, and we can’t make that decision for you.

But we can give you the tools you need to make the decision for yourself.

2015 Acura MDX

This seven-passenger luxury crossover is the epitome of high-tech, high-class, and high-power, embracing Acura’s aesthetics inside and out. The 2015 MDX is equipped with incredible in-cabin features including a touchscreen infotainment system, Bluetooth connectivity, and much more. And on the outside, you’ll have Acura’s Jewel Eye LED headlights and some of the most impressive styling we have ever seen on a crossover.

The MDX isn’t just looks, though. Under the hood is a 290-hp 3.5L V6 engine with 267 lb-ft of torque. And the 2015 MDX earns an EPA-estimated 28 highway mpg.*

2015 Acura RDX

Being Acura crossovers, the RDX and the MDX have a lot in common, with the biggest difference being that the 2015 Acura RDX has seating for just five. And the benefit of this smaller size is a sedan-like handling without sacrificing the spacious interior of a crossover.

The RDX even comes with a 3.5L V6 engine like the MDX, though the 2015 RDX’s 3.5L V6 engine is rated at 273 hp and 251 lb-ft of torque, earning it an EPA-estimated 28 highway mpg.*

Take One (or Both) for a Spin!

Both of these vehicles are great for families, with the RDX serving small Detroit families well while the MDX might better serve families with three or more kids. But to see if they are right for you, you should visit a Michigan Acura Dealer for a test drive. We can’t wait to put you in the driver’s seat.

Michigan Acura Dealers includes Acura of Troy, Ann Arbor Acura, Jeffrey Acura, Suburban Acura, Dave White Acura, and Fox Acura.
