2017 Acura MDX vs. 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Acura MDX than the Chevrolet Tahoe. The Chevrolet Tahoe 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
The Chevrolet Tahoe requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Acura MDX, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Chevrolet Tahoe. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Acura MDX carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Chevrolet Tahoe.

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

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

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Chevrolet Tahoe is clearly the choice over the Acura MDX for pulling heavy loads. The Acura MDX has a little less horsepower than the Chevrolet Tahoe.

Utility
The Acura MDX has less seating than the Chevrolet Tahoe, making the Chevrolet Tahoe the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Acura MDX has less cargo space than the Chevrolet Tahoe, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Acura MDX than that of the Chevrolet Tahoe.
