Have you been taking a closer look at some of the segment-leading three-row SUVs? Although the 2020 Acura MDX is a luxury SUV, while the 2020 Honda Pilot is not, it still makes sense to compare the two. Although you’ll pay more for the Acura, a close comparison of the Honda Pilot vs. Acura MDX reveals that the latter is giving you a lot more for your money.  Take your Phoenix and Peoria drives to the next level by finding out where the MDX wins out!

MDX vs. Pilot: Performance and Drivetrain Options

Both the 2020 Honda Pilot and the 2020 Acura MDX come standard with a 3.5-Liter V6 engine. Although the MDX engine has been optimized to provide more power, the main difference between the base trims consists in the transmission you’ll find in each model. The Acura MDX gets a 9-speed automatic transmission as a standard feature, while the Pilot starts with a 6-speed automatic.

How do the MDX and the Pilot compare by the numbers? You’ll enjoy 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque in the Acura, but just 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque in the Honda. Both models get an EPA-estimated 27 mpg on the highway*, but with the improved transmission, the MDX wins out by 1 mpg on Scottsdale or streets*.

What if you’re looking at upgrades? Although the Honda Pilot is available with all-wheel drive, only the Acura offers its signature Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ as an available upgrade. For an even more engaging (and more fuel-efficient) drive, upgrade once again with the available Sport Hybrid SH-AWD® and enjoy up to 26 mpg in the city*.

MDX vs. Pilot: Luxury Features

There’s no way around it: the 2020 Acura MDX simply provides a lot more luxury for your daily drives and adventures, even if you’re comparing the Honda Pilot Touring or the Honda Pilot Elite!  Although both models offer a wide array of advanced safety features, standard, the Acura wins out with each of the following highlights:

  • Eight-speaker sound system
  • Standard Apple CarPlay™/Android Auto™
  • Standard Moonroof
  • Standard Power liftgate
  • Sports seats with a premium leather-trimmed interior
  • 12-way power front seats
  • Standard leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Tri-zone automatic climate control
  • Up to 90.9 cubic feet of cargo room (vs. 83.9 in the Pilot)

Take a look at the Acura MDX packages to find out what else you can expect! While you’re at it, compare the Acura MDX vs. Lexus RX to find out how it compares to a more luxurious rival.
