2015 Acura MDX vs. 2015 Toyota Sequoia Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Acura MDX than the Toyota Sequoia. The Acura MDX will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota Sequoia.

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 Toyota Sequoia. 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 Toyota Sequoia have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Acura MDX is much slimmer than the Toyota Sequoia, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Acura MDX, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Toyota Sequoia.

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

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Toyota Sequoia is clearly the choice over the Acura MDX for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Acura MDX has a lot less horsepower than the Toyota Sequoia.

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

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