To find out more, compare their standard Acura MDX vs Audi Q7 on:

  • Power and Performance
  • Efficiency Scores
  • Safety Technology

SUV Comparison: Power and Performance

The Acura MDX might provide seating for seven across three spacious rows, but it still offers fleet-footed performance and effortless cruising when you put your foot down. All models fit a 3.5L V6 that thoroughly outperforms the Audi Q7’s outdated four-cylinder.

  • Acura MDX: A 3.5L V6 makes up to 290 hp.
  • Audi Q7: A 2.0L four-cylinder makes up to just 248 hp.

The Acura MDX is also significantly lighter, with the standard model coming in at a curb weight of just 4,032 lbs. vs. a ponderous 4,927 lbs. with the Audi Q7.

MPG Ratings & Fuel Economy

It would be easy for Acura to fit a thunderously powerful engine that delivers exceptional performance without considering efficiency scores. Instead, they’ve equipped the new MDX with cutting-edge powertrain technology, including a sophisticated 9-speed automatic transmission to achieve:

  • Up to an EPA-estimated 20 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway (base trim level).**

Despite offering less power, the Audi Q7’s 8-speed automatic transmission fails to match those ratings. Standard models make:

  • Up to an EPA-estimated 19 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.
