2015 Acura MDX vs. 2015 Audi Q7 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
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.

Convenience
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.

Cost
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). When looking only at MSRP, the Acura MDX will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Audi Q7. 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.

Dimensions
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.

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

Handling
The Acura MDX has a smaller turning radius than the Audi Q7, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
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.

Utility
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.

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