Whether you’re driving through the snowy city streets of Denver or cruising through Aurora down I-70, chances are you and your family require a quality crossover or SUV whose interior specs match its performance specs. And that’s why it’s worth considering whether the 2018 Acura RDX or 2018 Acura MDX is best for you. Take a look below at the two vehicles before scheduling a test drive today at Mile High.

Engine Specs and Fuel Economy

The 2018 Acura RDX, a muscular crossover, delivers:

  • 279-hp with 252 lb-ft of torque
  • 3.5L V-6 Engine
  • 23 MPG combined on Acura RDX Standard 2WD*

On the other hand, the Acura MDX is a family-friendly SUV that seats up to 7. Its specs include:

  • 290-hp with 267 lb-ft of torque
  • 3.5L V-6 Engine
  • 22 MPG combined Acura MDX Standard 2WD*

So while the Acura MDX has marginally inferior gas mileage than its crossover counterpart, its engine specs are, naturally, more powerful.

Seating Capacity and Cargo Space

The Acura RDX is ideal for small families, couples, or luxury-minded drivers who need more cargo space than a sedan, but who nonetheless need to parallel park in crowded Denver streets. This vehicle seats up to 5.

Since the Acura MDX is a three row SUV that seats up to 7, the Acura MDX is ideal for families or Denver businesspersons with cargo to haul or employees to drive.

Safety Smart Features

Only select Acura RDX vehicles offer the AcuraWatch™ suite, a tech-smart set of driver assistive technologies including:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Lane Keeping Assist
  • Color Multi-Information Display

However, in true family-friendly fashion, the new Acura MDX offers AcuraWatch™ standard on all trim levels.
