Audi Q7 vs Acura MDX

When searching for a luxury mid-size SUV, it can be a little difficult to decipher which vehicle will work best for you and your family's lifestyle. That's why at Audi Devon, we've decided to do the research for you and compare two of the top luxury SUVs on the market: the 2017 Audi Q7 and the 2017 Acura MDX.

Drivers in Conshohocken, West Chester, and Devon will benefit from reading this vehicle comparison to get the details on what the Q7 and MDX have to offer.

Let's take a look inside the cabin of these SUVs to get started…

Inside the 2017 Audi Q7 and the 2017 Acura MDX

When looking for a luxury midsize SUV, what's going on inside the cabin matters for your and your passengers' driving experience.

Both the Audi Q7 and the Acura MDX seat up to seven, with plenty of adjustable leg room in the second row. The Q7 even offers electronic adjustable seating in both the second and third row, and 18-way power adjustable driver and passenger seats.

Style aligns with comfort in luxury vehicles, and both the Audi Q7 and the Acura MDX fill this expectation with standard leather seats and wood trim; however, the Q7's interior boasts a much softer, elegant quality than that of the MDX, calling on more soft touch surfaces and an intuitive placement of controls.

"Technically" Comparable

For longer trips or just to keep the kids entertained, technology is a major factor in deciding on which luxury SUV to go with. Fortunately, the Audi Q7 and Acura MDX are remarkable options in this department.

Both the 2017 Q7 and 2017 MDX come standard with a 7-inch touchscreen. However, the Audi Q7 offers a little more by way of entertainment, with its MMI standard infotainment system and available Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. Unfortunately, these features are not even options in the Acura MDX.

Staying Safe in the Q7 and MDX

Of course, with any SUV, you want to make sure you're looking for safety features to keep your mind at ease while on the road with your family. The Audi Q7 and the Acura MDX were both rated a 2017 TOP SAFETY PICK+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

The Q7 and MDX both come equipped with intelligent, standard safety features, such as a rearview camera and front and rear parking sensors. The Q7 comes standard with forward collision warning, so for those times you might get distracted on the road, the Q7 will have your back (or should we say, front?).
