Comparison Review

Comfort
The Acura MDX offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Genesis GV80, with comparable head- and legroom. The Genesis GV80 will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Acura MDX.
