2014 Acura RDX vs. 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Acura RDX than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Acura RDX, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Acura RDX as you will with the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. 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 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

Dimensions
The Acura RDX is about the same width as the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. When looking at overall length, the Acura RDX takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Acura RDX doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is clearly the choice over the Acura RDX for pulling heavy loads. The Acura RDX has a little less horsepower than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

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