2020 Acura MDX vs. Its Competition

2020 Acura MDX
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

Among premium crossovers, the Acura MDX competes well despite its relative age.

The Volvo XC90 is a tech powerhouse and offers a plug-in hybrid version for efficiency-minded buyers.

The Buick Enclave is similarly premium, with good interior space in all three rows.

The Cadillac XT6 is new this year and impresses buyers with its exterior.

The Audi Q7 is a conservative pick in the class, with good tech and a quiet ride.

The BMW X5 can be very expensive, but it’s also very luxurious.
