2017 Acura MDX vs. 2017 Porsche Macan Review

Comparison Review

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). Clearly, the Acura MDX is a better financial choice over the Porsche Macan, 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. The Acura MDX carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Porsche Macan.

Dimensions
The Acura MDX is a little wider than the Porsche Macan, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Acura MDX, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Porsche Macan.

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

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Acura MDX is clearly the choice over the Porsche Macan for pulling heavy loads. The Acura MDX has a little less horsepower than the Porsche Macan.

Utility
The Acura MDX offers greater seating capacity than the Porsche Macan, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the Acura MDX, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Porsche Macan.

Warranty
The Acura MDX comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche Macan.
