2022 Acura MDX vs. 2022 Cadillac XT5
The Cadillac XT5 is about $2000 cheaper than the MDX and can only carry five people while the Acura, on the other hand, is built to carry seven passengers. The Cadillac XT5 makes 310 hp which is 20 hp more than the MDX, but then it is quicker than the former on the straight line. In terms of fuel economy both the cars are similar while in terms of passenger space and comfort, the Acura feels more spacious and opulent.
The new MDX also offers better tech equipment than the XT5, and hence we think that the 2022 MDX has a slight edge over the XT5. For a few thousand dollars more, it has so much more to offer and if you have the budget, we would strongly recommend you to go for the MDX over the XT5.
2022 Acura MDX vs. 2022 Buick Enclave
The Buick Enclave is yet another mid-size, 7-seater crossover. It sports the same engine as the Cadillac XT5 and makes more power than the MDX. Despite having more horses under the hood, it doesn't translate well on the road. However, the Buick offers better passenger space than the MDX does. It offers more room to the passenger with a surprisingly practical and usable third row of seats when compared to the MDX.
Moreover, the Enclave is priced very competitively with prices starting at just $40,000. Now, if you do not bother about tech features and gimmicks and all that you want is a practical mid-size, 7 seater crossover then we would suggest you opt for the Buick. But then again, the Acura MDX is just a better proposition than Enclave if you’re ready to compromise a bit of passenger space.
2022 Acura MDX vs. 2022 Jaguar F-Pace
The Jaguar F-Pace is a driver’s SUV. It has a very lively 2.4 liter, turbo engine coupled to a very responsive gearbox that makes driving an SUV to feel like a sports car. Now, the Jaguar is a bit pricier than the MDX and has space for only 5 passengers. The F-Pace’s interior has a very sporty appeal to it and just offers the better snob value while it gets as many features as the Acura does.
Hence, we think the MDX is a more sensible and more value-for-money proposition than the F-Pace is. The Jaguar F-Pace is not a bad car but the latter has just so much more on offer at a lower price.
