Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Acura RDX than in the Toyota 4Runner. The Acura RDX offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota 4Runner, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Acura RDX as you will with the Toyota 4Runner, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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). The Acura RDX is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota 4Runner.

Dimensions
The Acura RDX is a little narrower than the Toyota 4Runner, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Acura RDX takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota 4Runner.

Handling
The Acura RDX has a larger turning radius than the Toyota 4Runner, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Acura RDX and the Toyota 4Runner.

Powertrain
With similar torque, the Acura RDX and the Toyota 4Runner are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Utility
The Acura RDX has less seating than the Toyota 4Runner, making the Toyota 4Runner the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers.
