2014 Acura MDX vs. 2013 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Acura MDX than in the Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid. The Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid 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 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Acura MDX will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid. 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 Hybrid.

Dimensions
Since the Acura MDX is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid, 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 Hybrid, which may make it easier to park.

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

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

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

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

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