2015 Acura MDX vs. 2015 Buick Enclave Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Acura MDX than the Buick Enclave. The Buick Enclave will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Acura MDX.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Acura MDX as you will with the Buick Enclave, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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). The Acura MDX is somewhat more expensive than the Buick Enclave. 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 Buick Enclave have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Acura MDX is much slimmer than the Buick Enclave, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Acura MDX is slightly shorter than the Buick Enclave, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Acura MDX and the Buick Enclave are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Buick Enclave is clearly the choice over the Acura MDX for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Acura MDX and the Buick Enclave.

Utility
The Acura MDX has less seating than the Buick Enclave, making the Buick Enclave the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Acura MDX has significantly less cargo capacity than the Buick Enclave.

Warranty
The Acura MDX comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Buick Enclave.
