 2017 Acura MDX

Are you stuck trying to decide on the next perfect vehicle to add to your life? Sterling Acura of Austin is here to help you in the decision-making process. If you’re interested in a stylish and performance-oriented SUV, let us show you the differences between the 2017 Acura MDX SH-AWD® (with Advance Package) and the 2017 Audi Q7 Quattro Prestige, one of its toughest competitors.When it comes to performance, the 2017 Acura MDX really outshines its competitor. With a much lighter curb weight, the Acura MDX can boast a better power-to-weight ratio. That means that you’ll be delighted with the improved handling that comes with its lighter weight. You’ll also be impressed by the beautiful integration between car and driver, as the outstanding handling puts you at one with your new ride.

Let’s talk about the interiors of the cars. The Audi Q7 Premium Plus interior will cost you more but give you less. The Advance Package on the Acura MDX comes with natural wood accents that must be purchased at additional cost on the Audi Q7. The Acura MDX also offers second-row captain’s chairs that are not even available on the Audi Q7. If that doesn’t knock your socks off, how about the 20 extra cubic feet of storage space in the Acura MDX?

Things get even better in the technology department. The Advance Package on the Acura MDX offers you three times as many USB ports (guaranteed to satisfy not only you but your passengers as well) and a surround-view camera that costs extra on the Audi Q7.

Want to be convinced even more? The 2017 Acura MDX comes standard with a very impressive list of AcuraWatch™ features, including Collision Mitigation Braking System™, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Assist, and Road Departure Mitigation. Can you find similar features on the Audi Q7? Yes, but they will cost you more.

Put all that together and you’ll see why Sterling Acura of Austin is convinced that the best choice for your new luxury vehicle is the Acura MDX. Stop by our Acura dealership at 4801 South IH 35 in Austin, TX, Monday through Friday 9:00am – 8:00pm and Saturday 9:00am – 7:00pm. We’d love to show you the exciting new 2017 Acura MDX!
