Comparison Review

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.

Convenience

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).

Drivetrain

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.
