Performance

Winner: 2017 Acura MDX (Details Below)

Acura has made the performance of the RDX and MDX all about everyday driving situations, as opposed to the sporty performance drivers get from the German luxury brands. Only one engine is available in each model.

A 279-horsepower V6 engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission drives the RDX, offering strong power and smooth performance. It is available in front- and all-wheel drive.

Under the hood of the 2017 MDX is a powerful 3.5-liter V6 engine mated to a nine-speed transmission that yields 290 horsepower. Though it won’t win any races off the line, the MDX’s power plant offers muscle when needed and never feels lacking. Based on brute engine strength, the MDX has the best output needed to get the job done between the two models.
