If you're looking to own a luxury SUV and have searched around for one, then you may have come across these two vehicles: the Acura MDX and the Lexus RX. Both of these premium vehicles have a lot to offer, and anyone would be lucky to own either one of them; however, there are a few key differences that make the Acura MDX stand out from its rival.

Available in five trims, the Acura MDX shines in performance. With a standard V6 engine that has 290 horsepower, the Acura MDX can satisfy most driving needs. And drivers near Griffin, GA, who need a little extra traction can upgrade the Acura MDX with Acura's Super-Handling All-Wheel-Drive system. This drivetrain increases the vehicle's maximum towing capability to 5,000 pounds. For even more power, the available three-motor Sport Hybrid powertrain generates 321 horsepower.

The design of the Acura MDX can best be described as practical and luxurious. The interior of this vehicle provides both space and comfort to you and your passengers. With seating for 6 or 7 depending on your package choice, the Acura MDX offers many features to help ensure cargo space doesn't hinder comfort or seating capacity. Thanks to its back passenger seats having a 60/40 split design feature, you can fold its seats down one at a time as needed to make more cargo space.

Technology in the Acura MDX includes the AcuraWatch safety technology package standard in every MDX model. This package of advanced safety technology is composed of five primary features: a Surround-View Camera, Acura's unique ACE Body Structure, Acura's Rear Cross Traffic Monitor system, AcuraLink, and Acura's blind spot information system.

Also offered in the Acura MDX near Milledgeville is a variety of infotainment technology to make your drive more pleasant. These infotainment technology features include an available second-row split-screen video screen, an available 10-speaker ELS Studio Premium Audio System, a USB Audio Interface, and an option to get SiriusXM Satellite Radio.

Moving on to the Lexus RX, its current model offers eight trim levels and various top features and modern technology. Its standard 3.5-liter V6 engine has 295 horsepower, and you have the option to upgrade to the available 308-horsepower RX Hybrid V6 engine. This upgraded engine falls a bit short of the best engine option for the Acura MDX, but it still offers a respectable amount of power. The Lexus RX has a max towing capacity of 3,500 pounds, while the Acura MDX has a max capacity of 5,000 pounds.

As for Lexus RX's design, it offers seating for 5, 6, or 7 depending on your needs. The third row of seats in the RX can fold to be almost completely flat when needed to make extra space for cargo. And like the Acura MDX, the Lexus RX also gives you the option to fold one seat down at a time.

Technology available in the Lexus RX includes Lexus' standard safety system: Lexus Safety System+ 2.0. This safety package is available in all new Lexus vehicles and comes with multiple advanced driver-assist features. Also available in the RX is Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Unlike the Acura MDX, the Lexus RX does not offer a theater screen for back passengers.

Overall, both the Acura MDX and Lexus RX are great vehicles to own; but it becomes clear that the new Acura MDX is the model to choose when looking closer.
