Both the Acura MDX and the Audi Q7 are luxury SUVs, but that doesn’t mean you should pay an excessive amount. The Audi Q7 starts at $49,900 MSRP, while the Acura MDX starts at $44,200 MSRP*.

In fact, you can add the Technology Package or all-wheel drive capability and the Acura MDX still costs less than the Audi Q7. With that big of a difference, you might expect the Acura MDX to be lacking a few key features. In fact, the base trim actually includes many systems that aren’t found in the Audi Q7 Premium:

  • Voice Controls
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • LED Headlights
  • Adaptive Variable Suspension

These features can often be found at higher trim levels in the Audi Q7, but you’ll need to pay more.
