2017 Acura RDX vs. 2016 Ford Edge Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Edge than in the Acura RDX, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Ford Edge will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Acura RDX.

Convenience
The Ford Edge requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Acura RDX, making it more convenient to drive.

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). The Acura RDX is somewhat more expensive than the Ford Edge. 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 RDX will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Ford Edge.

Dimensions
Since the Acura RDX is much slimmer than the Ford Edge, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Acura RDX is slightly shorter than the Ford Edge, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Acura RDX and the Ford Edge are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Ford Edge is clearly the choice over the Acura RDX for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Acura RDX and the Ford Edge.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Acura RDX and the Ford Edge. The Acura RDX has less cargo space than the Ford Edge, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Acura RDX than that of the Ford Edge.
