Acura MDX vs. Audi Q7

Which Three-Row SUV Will You Choose?

The 2018 Acura MDX and the Audi Q7 are both popular options, but the MDX comes out ahead. Your family will enjoy advantages in the following areas:

  • Lower starting price
  • Better base trim features
  • More room for cargo

Explore the Approachable MDX

Both the MDX and the Q7 are luxury SUVs, but that doesn’t mean you should pay an excessive amount. The 2018 Q7 starts at $49,900 MSRP, while the 2018 MDX starts at $44,200 MSRP*. In fact, you can add the Technology Package or all-wheel drive capability and the MDX still costs less than the Q7. With that big of a difference, you might expect the MDX to be lacking a few key features. In fact, the base trim actually includes many systems that aren’t found in the Q7 Premium:

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

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

Make Room for More Cargo

With room for up to seven passengers, the Q7 and the MDX are both well-equipped to handle the demands of a large family. However, when you compare their cargo capacities, a big difference begins to emerge:

Behind 2nd Row

43.4 cubic feet

37.5 cubic feet
Behind 1st Row

90.9 cubic feet

71.6 cubic feet

As you can see, the new Acura MDX simply offers more cargo room no matter how you configure your seating. Whether you’re loading up a big load of groceries at Garden Fresh Market in Naperville, or picking up the whole team from practice, the MDX is the stronger choice.
