Space & Utility

If you’re in the market for a three-row SUV, you want a luxurious vehicle with plenty of space for you, your family, and any cargo you may need to carry. Space is the defining aspect of a three-row SUV, so it’s important to note that the 2018 Acura MDX offers substantially more of it than the 2018 Lexus RX 350L. Its total passenger volume is a roomy 132.7 cubic feet, putting the RX 350L’s 114.9 cubic feet of passenger volume into sharp relief. And when you have a lot of cargo to carry, you won’t have to worry about whether the MDX can fit it all in—its 90.9 cubic feet of cargo volume behind the first row ensures that you can. But the RX 350L will drastically let you down, offering a mere 58.48 cubic fee

Acura MDX Space


The greater space in the 2018 Acura MDX is especially striking when you consider how much more affordable it is compared to the 2018 Lexus RX 350L. A FWD MDX has a base price of $44,200*, which is over $3,000 less than the FWD RX 350L’s base price of $47,670. This discrepancy remains much the same when you upgrade both to their AWD models, so you’ll always be saving money when you opt for the MDX.

Acura MDX Value


In terms of performance, the 2018 Acura MDX and the 2018 Lexus RX 350L are neck and neck, each capable of delivering 290 hp.
