2015 Acura RDX vs. 2015 GMC Terrain Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the GMC Terrain than in the Acura RDX, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Acura RDX and the GMC Terrain.

Convenience
The GMC Terrain 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 GMC Terrain. 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 RDX and the GMC Terrain have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Acura RDX is a little wider than the GMC Terrain, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Acura RDX takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the GMC Terrain.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Acura RDX does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the GMC Terrain.

Handling
The Acura RDX has a smaller turning radius than the GMC Terrain, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Acura RDX will do just as well as the GMC Terrain, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Acura RDX has a little less horsepower than the GMC Terrain.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Acura RDX and the GMC Terrain. The Acura RDX has less cargo space than the GMC Terrain, 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 GMC Terrain.
