Looking for a reliable new SUV in the Cherry Hill area? Consider the Acura MDX or RDX! These premium SUVs are both new for 2022, with spacious interior cabins, impressive performance specs, and plenty of luxurious features. They’re both great choices, but only one will ultimately best suit your driving needs. So, what’s the difference between the Acura MDX and RDX? Acura Turnersville has all the details in the guide below!



2022 Acura MDX vs. RDX: Starting Price

Price is often one of the first things that drivers look at when picking out a new vehicle. Right off the bat, you’ll notice that the Acura RDX is offered at a lower price tag than the larger Acura MDX. However, the Acura MDX compensates with six trim levels instead of five, and has more powerful performance specs to match. Both SUVs offer front-wheel drive as well as all-wheel drive, depending on how much traction you want on the road. Here’s the full price list:

2022 Acura MDX Price By Trim Level

  • MDX: MSRP from $48,000 (FWD) / $50,200 (AWD)*

2022 Acura MDX vs. RDX: Cargo Space

Cargo space is another area that’s often important to SUV drivers, especially those with large families that need to carry a lot of luggage or other gear in their vehicle. Fortunately, both the Acura MDX and RDX offer plenty of room inside the cabin, improved even further by folding down the rear seats. However, if you’re after maximum space, the Acura MDX is the way to go. It’s a three-row SUV that seats a total of seven passengers, and offers over 20 cubic feet more cargo room than the compact RDX. Here are the full dimensions for these two SUVs’ cargo space:

2022 Acura MDX Dimensions

  • 18.1 cubic feet of cargo space behind the 3rd row
  • 48.4 cubic feet of cargo space behind the 2nd row
  • 95.0 cubic feet of cargo space behind the 1st row

2022 Acura RDX Dimensions

2022 Acura MDX vs. RDX: Engine Specs & Performance

Both the 2022 Acura MDX and RDX sport powerful engines that deliver impressive performance specs on the road.

If you want peak performance, the larger Acura MDX offers more horsepower and torque with its 3.5L V6 engine.
