What is the Difference Between the Acura MDX and Acura RDX?

While both SUVs classify as luxury transportation, they differ in size. The Acura RDX is a luxury compact crossover with five-passenger seating. The luxury midsize Acura MDX comes more suited for families with an extra row of seats. Different interior layouts also mean different cargo capacities. The Acura RDX has 29.5 cubic-feet of standard storage and up to 58.9 cubic-feet without the second row.

By having a third row, the Acura MDX automatically offers a larger, more versatile cabin for Ohio families. With a seven-passenger capacity, you'll still have 15 cubic-feet of storage space. If you need more, remove the third row to get 38.4 cubic-feet. If you want the maximum cargo capacity, fold down the second row for 68.4 cubic-feet. The differences in seating and size should help you see which SUV would be better for trips between the areas of Fairfield and Hamilton.
