2015 Acura MDX vs. Its Competition

2015 Acura MDX
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Senior Editor

The BMW X5 is a more handsome–albeit more carlike–crossover than it ever has been in the past, and offers a wider variety of engines, appearance packages, and interior trims.

The Lexus RX 350 is the segment's perennial best-seller, but it lacks the extra row of seats and much of the fun-factor behind the wheel.

The Lincoln MKT may look a little strange from the outside, but its interior is well-designed and equally useful by comparison to the MDX.

There's also the Buick Enclave, which offers an exceptionally quiet ride and gentle, smooth driving dynamics–as well as a long list of standard and available features.

Quick Specs
The 2015 Acura MDX continues to offer an attractive blend of content, comfort, and entertainment for the entire family–including the driver.
The 2015 BMW X5 is a handsome, capable, tech-filled vehicle for the shopper who wants a luxury SUV.
The 2015 Buick Enclave is one of the safest crossovers money can buy, and it impresses with its plus-sized chic styling and appointments.
Not everyone loves the unique look of the MKT, but if it's your style there's plenty to like, including a muscular available turbo V-6, plenty of infotainment tech, and a comfortable, spacious interior.
The 2015 Mazda CX-9 isn't as efficient as Mazda's latest offerings, but it manages to put the same kind of smile on the driver's face as the brand's smaller offerings.
