Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Grand Cherokee than in the Acura RDX, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Acura RDX and the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Convenience
With the Jeep Grand Cherokee, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Acura RDX, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Acura RDX or the Jeep Grand Cherokee, it's going to cost you about the same.

Dimensions
Since the Acura RDX is much slimmer than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Acura RDX is slightly shorter than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, which may make it easier to park.

Handling
The Acura RDX has a larger turning radius than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Acura RDX has a little less horsepower than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Acura RDX transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Acura RDX and the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
