Finding the perfect luxury crossover vehicle is as easy as coming to Rizza Acura. Here at Rizza Acura, we’ve broken down the distinctions between the new 2015 Acura MDX vs. the 2015 Acura RDX models to give you a clearer idea of which SUV is right for you.

When it comes to finding the most sophisticated and refined SUVs, Rizza Acura offers everything you need. Whether you’re looking for the superior handling and interior comfort of the 2015 Acura RDX or the inspired power delivery of the 2015 Acura MDX, we’ve got you covered. Take a look at some of each of the models’ specific features.


The RDX is powered by an i-VTEC aluminum alloy 3.5L V6 with a Sequential Electronic Fuel Injected fuel system, putting out an impressive 273 hp and 251 lb-ft. of torque. If you want a little extra power, the MDX is loaded with a Direct Injection 3.5L V6 that delivers 290 hp and 267 lb-ft. of torque for some added boost. Both come with standard FWD but have All-Wheel Drive options.

They both also come standard equipped with front and rear Independent Strut Suspension with coil springs and shock absorbers, front and rear stabilizer bars, and P245/60HR18 BSW Performance All-Season tires that run strong on any road surface.


When it comes to sophistication, the 2015 Acura RDX interior is sure to impress. Its plush seats are ergonomically designed to provide you with the support and comfort of a luxury sport sedan. Modern accents like the leather trim and breathable perforated leather give added allure to the vehicle’s luxury. Like the MDX, the driver’s seat comes with power lumbar adjustment, and you can decide the perfect driving position with the 10-way power adjustable driver’s seat. The driver and front-passenger seats in the MDX feature side bolsters for extra support and cushion when taking sharp curves and maximize comfort for longer drivers.

The MDX has a passenger volume of 7 and slightly larger interior volume of 132.3 ft3 compared to the RDX’s 5-passenger capacity and 103.5 ft3 of interior space. The additional space in the MDX makes family trips a breeze, providing ample space for comfort throughout the car.
