2016 Acura MDX vs. 2015 Audi Q7 Review

Comparison Review

Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Acura MDX than the Audi Q7. The Audi Q7 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Acura MDX, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

With the Audi Q7, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Acura MDX, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Clearly, the Acura MDX is a better financial choice over the Audi Q7, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Acura MDX and the Audi Q7 have similar Destination Charges.

The Acura MDX is a little narrower than the Audi Q7, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Acura MDX is slightly shorter than the Audi Q7, which may make it easier to park.

The Acura MDX has much lower torque than the Audi Q7, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

The Acura MDX has the same turning radius as the Audi Q7, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

In terms of towing capacity, the Audi Q7 is clearly the choice over the Acura MDX for pulling heavy loads. The Acura MDX has a little more horsepower than the Audi Q7.

In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Acura MDX and the Audi Q7. The Acura MDX has less cargo space than the Audi Q7, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

The Acura MDX comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Audi Q7.
