2014 Buick Enclave vs. 2014 Acura MDX Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Buick Enclave offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Acura MDX. The Buick Enclave will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Acura MDX.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Buick Enclave as you will with the Acura MDX, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Buick Enclave will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Acura MDX. 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 Buick Enclave and the Acura MDX have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Buick Enclave is much wider than the Acura MDX, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Buick Enclave, which is slightly longer than the Acura MDX.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Buick Enclave and the Acura MDX are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Buick Enclave has a larger turning radius than the Acura MDX, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Buick Enclave is clearly the choice over the Acura MDX for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Buick Enclave and the Acura MDX.

Utility
The Buick Enclave offers greater seating capacity than the Acura MDX, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the Buick Enclave, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Acura MDX.

Warranty
The Buick Enclave comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Acura MDX.
