The 2020 Acura MDX and the 2020 Acura RDX are both strong options for drivers in the greater San Jose area. After all, they both offer impressive performance and capacities that our neighbors desire, while maintaining their value well over the years! Although you really can’t go wrong either way, you can probably only choose one for your Santa Clara and Monterey adventures!  If you’re comparing the Acura MDX vs. RDX, you’ll need to keep the following points in mind:

  • The main difference between Acura MDX and RDX models is that the MDX has three rows of seating, while the RDX has two.
  • Both models offer plenty of power and impressive fuel economy, but if you plan on doing much towing, you’ll want to go for the larger MDX.

Power, Efficiency, and Towing: Acura MDX vs. RDX

  • Starting Engines: The 2020 Acura MDX comes equipped with a 290-hp 3.5-liter V6 engine. The Acura RDX carries a 2.0-liter turbocharged I4, offering 272 hp.
  • All-Wheel Drive: Both models are available with Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive. However, only the Acura MDX offers Sport Hybrid Super-Handling SH-AWD®.
  • Fuel Economy: As standard, the smaller RDX is the more efficient model. However, the availability of Sport Hybrid technology allows the MDX to offer a higher maximum on city streets.
  • Towing Capacity: The 2020 Acura can only tow up to 1,500 pounds. While this makes it a capable contender in its own class, the MDX towers overhead with a 5,000-pound towing capacity.

If you’re comparing the Acura RDX vs. MDX on performance, you have plenty of reasons to consider both models. If you need to tow heavy cargo or you want to explore advanced performance options, you’ll probably lean towards the MDX.

Acura MDX vs. RDX: Dimensions and Capacities

  • Exterior Dimensions: The MDX measures 196.2 inches from bumper-to-bumper. The RDX, at 186.7 inches, is slightly easier to park and maneuver on the crowded streets of Santa Clara.
  • Interior Dimensions: Your passengers will want to compare the Acura MDX vs. RDX on legroom. While these Acura SUVs are nearly identical across the first two rows, the MDX offers a standard third row, and more shoulder room.
  • Cargo Space: When all seats are in their upright positions, the Acura RDX offers 29.5 cubic feet of cargo space. The Acura MDX offers 15.8 cubic feet under the same condition, but you can lay down two rows of seating to make more room. At maximum, the RDX offers 58.9 cubic feet, compared to 90.9 cubic feet in the MDX.
