2019 Toyota Highlander vs. 2019 Acura MDX Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Toyota Highlander offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Acura MDX. The Toyota Highlander will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Acura MDX.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Toyota Highlander as you will with the Acura MDX, 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). Clearly, the Toyota Highlander is a better financial choice over the Acura MDX, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Toyota Highlander will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Acura MDX.

Dimensions
Since the Toyota Highlander is much slimmer than the Acura MDX, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Toyota Highlander takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Acura MDX.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Toyota Highlander and the Acura MDX are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Toyota Highlander has the same turning radius as the Acura MDX, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Toyota Highlander is clearly the choice over the Acura MDX for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Toyota Highlander and the Acura MDX.

Utility
The Toyota Highlander offers greater seating capacity than the Acura MDX, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Toyota Highlander has less cargo space than the Acura MDX, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Toyota Highlander is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Acura MDX.
