Sleek, sporty, and stylish, the 2016 Acura MDX features dynamic handling that makes it intuitive and fun to drive, and  its attention to luxurious comforts makes it relaxing and unique. To highlight its stand-out characteristics, we’ve compared the MDX to its fierce competitor, the 2016 Lincoln MKX, to illustrate just how impressive the MDX is!

How Does Each Crossover Perform?

With a wide 111.0-inch wheelbase, the 2016 Acura MDX is incredibly stable, and it delivers a noticeably smooth ride. And with a 3.5L direct-injection V6, the MDX comes equipped with 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque. That robust power should make the ride as exciting as it is intuitive. The MDX achieves up to 19 mpg city* and 27 mpg highway*, according to EPA estimates, which makes it exceptionally fuel efficient for a crossover as well. See our inventory of 2016 Acura MDX vehicles for more information.

Comparatively, the wide 112.2-inch wheelbase of the 2016 Lincoln MKX means that it’s likely sacrificing stability at the expense of handling and precision. The same is true of its 3.7L Ti-VCT V6 engine, which puts out 303 hp. Those are certainly powerful numbers, but with the 200 to 400 additional pounds it has on the Acura MDX — depending on trim and features — the MKX needs that extra power to simply keep pace. That extra power and weight also come at the expense of fuel economy; the MKX earns an EPA estimated 17 mpg city* and 26 mpg highway*, meaning it can’t quite compete with the MDX.

What Features Does Each Crossover Offer?

Now that we’ve seen how both vehicles perform, let’s take a look at what features they offer and how they compare. To start, with the 2016 Acura MDX you can expect the following features and more:
