Vehicle Name

Shooting at becoming a more competitive luxury SUV, the 2017 Lincoln MKX has benefited from an extensive refit — however, it still fails to match established frontrunners like the 2017 Acura MDX. While the Lincoln was busy catching up, the Acura was busy leading the segment, and that’s evident across everything from safety features to comfort and convenience technology.

Standard Features

Few models can rival the standard features of the Acura MDX, and the Lincoln MKX is certainly not one of them. Creature comforts, such as a universal garage door opener, tri-zone climate control, and a power moonroof are missing from entry-level models, but the superiority of the Acura is most evident once you turn to its driver-assistance features.

The following amenities come standard with the new MDX, but you’ll have to pay extra for them with the Lincoln MKX:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control

  • Lane Keeping Assist System

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System

Available Features

The 2017 Acura MDX is noteworthy for included the features listed above as standard, and it further outpaces competitors like the 2017 Lincoln MKX when it comes to available technology.

Here are just two of the features you’ll only be offered with the Acura:

  • GPS-Linked Climate Control: Monitors the heat of the sun between different areas. If it shines a little hotter as you cruise between Oak Brook and Tinley Park, the system will adjust automatically.

  • ELS Premium Audio System: This ten-speaker system was designed by a Grammy award-winning recording engineer and producer.

Interior Space

Even lacking the advantage of its state-of-the-art technology, the 2017 Acura MDX’s generously proportioned cabin would tempt drivers away from the 2017 Lincoln MKX.

With room for 7 passengers vs just 5 with the Lincoln, the Acura MDX makes an ideal family vehicle, and it even provides up to 43.5 cubic feet for cargo behind the second row or 90.9 cubic feet behind the first row. The Lincoln offers 37.2 cubic feet behind the second row and 68.8 cubic feet behind the first row.
