Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Grand Cherokee L than in the Acura RDX, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Acura RDX offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Jeep Grand Cherokee L, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
With the Jeep Grand Cherokee L, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Acura RDX will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Jeep Grand Cherokee L.

Dimensions
Since the Acura RDX is much slimmer than the Jeep Grand Cherokee L, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Acura RDX, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Jeep Grand Cherokee L.

Handling
The Acura RDX has the same turning radius as the Jeep Grand Cherokee L, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

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

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

Utility
The Acura RDX has less seating than the Jeep Grand Cherokee L, making the Jeep Grand Cherokee L the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers.
