The competition in the luxury SUV market is fierce. It seems as if almost all the brands are trying to find a way to stand out and up the ante on their competitors. When you are shopping for your next SUV, you may be looking for ways to find out which of these behemoths really stands out in the fray. One name you'll find consistently popping out in each category is the 2020 Acura MDX. Against some of its main rivals, the Lexus RX 350 and the Infiniti QX6O, it comes out on top. You can find this impressive Acura SUV at Mile High Acura, Inc, located at 2799 Havana Street in Denver, CO.

Acura MDX vs Lexus RX 350

Lexus RX 350

Acura and Lexus are two of the more prominent names in the luxury SUV market, which makes them natural competitors. The Acura MDX is consistently matched up against the Lexus RX 350 and, while both are intriguing options, the Acura SUV overcomes the RX 350 in a variety of different categories. Some of the features that are standard on the 2020 Acura MDX that will cost you more with the 2020 Lexus RX 350 include:

  • Active Sound Control
  • Third-Row Seating
  • Power Moonroof
  • Multiview Rear Camera

In addition, the Acura model comes with the A-Spec trim level, which is of huge interest to drivers who want a sporty appearance and ride in their SUV. The Lexus doesn't have that option.

Acura MDX vs Infinity QX 60

It is understandable that drivers would find both the 2020 Infiniti QX60 and the 2020 Acura MDX as attractive options to consider, but going with the Acura MDX might be the better choice because it beats out the Infiniti model in many different ways. Some of these ways include the standard features that are only available, or not even, on the Infiniti QX60, like:

  • Smart Slide Third-Row Seating Access
  • Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ Smartphone Integration
  • Multi-View Rear Camera
  • Paddle Shifters

The 2020 Acura MDX also offers drivers 14.7 more cubic feet of cargo room than the Infiniti QX60. This means you'll actually have space for the golf clubs when you go on vacation this year.

Acura MDX vs Audi Q7

Standard Horsepower. The Audi Q7 comes standard with a 248-horsepower four-cylinder engine that has enough zip for most daily driving. However, people in Denver will be able to merge onto the freeway faster in the Acura MDX. It comes with a 290-horsepower V6 engine that has plenty of power for just about all situations.

Fuel Economy. Both the Acura MDX and the Audi Q7 are efficient midsize SUVs, but the MDX does better in highway driving. Thrifty Aurora, CO drivers will like that the MDX gets 19 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. The Q7 gets 19 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway.


Cargo Space. One of the main reasons people in Denver drive midsize SUVs is because of their roomy cargo holds. The Acura MDX has more than 71 cubic feet of cargo space with its back seats folded down. The Audi Q7 has a maximum of 69.6 cubic feet of space to put shopping bags or luggage.

Standard Tech Features. The redesigned Acura MDX is loaded with convenient standard tech features, including wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and wireless device charging. The Audi Q7 has a lot of standard amenities, but wireless device charging is just optional and wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are not available.

Even though the new Acura MDX has more standard features than the Audi Q7, its starting price is nearly $10,000 less. Mile High Acura has many MDX models available for sale or lease near Aurora, CO. Come see us and test drive one today.

Acura MDX vs BMW X5

  • Sharper handling. The new Acura MDX has responsive steering and a wide stance that keeps it planted around tight turns in Denver. The new BMW X5 also handles pretty well, but its steering feels a bit too numb.
  • Tighter turn radius. Despite being slightly longer than the new BMW X5, the new Acura MDX is easier to navigate through narrow lanes and crowded parking lots in Aurora, CO. It has a 40.5-foot turning diameter, compared to a 41.3-foot turning diameter for the X5.
  • Interior

    • Passenger space. The new Acura MDX has much more space for growing Denver families than the new BMW X5. It comes standard with three rows of seats that comfortably hold seven people. The X5 has only five seats in its standard configuration. Its optional third row is rather cramped and best suited for kids.
    • Cargo room. There's more space for Aurora, CO drivers to put their suitcases or sports gear in the new Acura MDX. It has 16.3 cubic feet of room behind the third-row seats, 39.1 cubic feet with the third-row seats folded down, and 79.8 cubic feet of cargo space with all the back seats down. The BMW X5 only has 72.3 cubic feet of total cargo space.
    • More standard tech features. Since the new Acura MDX and BMW X5 are both luxury SUVs, they're both loaded with standard amenities. However, the MDX has a few standard features that are better than those in the X5. The MDX comes with tri-zone automatic climate control, while the X5 only has dual-zone automatic climate control as standard. Also, the MDX comes with support for Amazon Alexa and a wireless device charging pad. Neither of those items are standard on the X5.

Acura MDX vs Mercedes-Benz GLC 300

  • Performance.

When cruising down the road or venturing the trails in Aurora, CO, you want as much power as you can get from your SUV. While the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 looks nice, under the hood, its base powertrain is only a turbocharged four-cylinder engine outputting 255 horsepower. The Acura MDX, on the other hand, sports a more powerful engine in the form of a 3.5-liter 290 horsepower V6.

  • Seating.

One of the big draws for buying an SUV is increased cabin space, which means increased seating for some Denver drivers. When looking at these two crossovers, we see that the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300, while spacious, only provides room for five passengers. Compare this to the Acura MDX and its seven-seat occupancy, and it's clear larger families will enjoy this vehicle more.

  • Amenities.

Both these SUVs offer an impressive suite of technology. The difference, however, is that the Acura MDX comes standard with features like an ultra-wide Panoramic Moonroof, Wi-Fi Hotspot capability, and SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, whereas the Mercedes Benz GLC 300 requires you to pay extra for these types of amenities.
