2020 Acura MDX vs 2020 Audi Q7

Serving Memphis, TN

As midsize luxury crossovers, the Acura MDX and the Audi Q7 have vied for the attention of Memphis drivers for years. However, a quick review of the models reveals that the MDX’s starting price is substantially more affordable than the Q7’s base price. What other differences will you discover when you thoroughly compare these popular models?


The 2020 Acura MDX’s style balances its blend of modern, crisp angles with toned contours. The nose trends into a defined point that runs through the pentagon-shaped grille. The chrome accents on the grille and around the fog lamps highlight the LED headlights’ bejeweled quality. The MDX’s exterior is enhanced by dual exhaust tips with a metallic finish, a power liftgate, and a chrome bar that connects the LED taillights. The Audi Q7 has a much larger grille that sits on a thin skid plate. The segmented LED headlights point toward the grille to draw attention to its size. Like the MDX, the rear has dual exhaust tips and a metallic bar connecting the brake lights.


The MDX’s interior is refined and modern with leather materials and advanced technologies. The captain’s chairs in the second row easily slide forward to grant access to the third row. The center stack has a sharp look that dramatically flows down toward the center console. The stacked display screens offer access to the navigation system, smart device apps, sound system, and more. This crossover also comes with two-seat memory functions, voice recognition, a tri-zone climate management system, and other equipment. The 2020 Audi Q7’s interior has bench-style seats in the second row. The second and third rows fold flat for a touch of functionality. You can access the SUV’s sound system at the front of the cabin, a navigation system, heated steering wheel, and other items.


You can choose between a gas-powered engine and a hybrid engine for the 2020 MDX. The 3.5-liter gas engine produces 290 horsepower, and it is offered with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. The 3.0-liter sport hybrid engine is only available with all-wheel drive, and it delivers 321 net horsepower. The base trim level for the 2020 Audi Q7, on the other hand, has a 2.0-liter, I4 engine.
