2015 Acura MDX vs. 2015 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Acura MDX will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Porsche Macan. 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. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Acura MDX, which is slightly longer than 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 a smaller turning radius than the Porsche Macan, allowing you to more easily maneuver 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.
