The 2017 Acura MDX is a full-size SUV and the 2017 Acura RDX is considered a midsize SUV. The major differences between the size of these two stunning SUVs are the number of available seats and the maximum cargo space. The Acura MDX offers three rows of seating, allowing you to accommodate seven people and access up to 90.9 cubic feet of cargo room. Meanwhile, the Acura RDX is more compact while still providing plenty of space for your crew and your gear. More technologies come standard in the base trim of the MDX than you’ll find in the RDX base such as voice-activated controls, an adaptive cruise control function and noise cancellation technology. That being said, you can upgrade to higher trims of the Acura RDX to gain these systems. If you dream of hauling a trailer behind your SUV, you may want to opt for the full-size MDX, as this Acura can tow up to 3,500 pounds when properly equipped.
