Apart from vehicle size and price, engine specifications is where we see the next big differentiator in these two luxury SUVs. The 2020 Acura MDX rightfully boasts the larger of the two engines with a 3.5L 6cly 9A beast under the hood. This 6-cylinder engine gives you the pickup you crave when you press on the gas and is as fast off the line as it is down the stretch- it maintains a combined 22 MPG. The 2020 Acura RDX holds a slightly smaller engine that should be fighting up a weight class or two. The 2.0L 4cly Turbo 10A engine that comes standard under the hood in the Acura RDX does not mess around. This turbo engine is more than enough power for this smaller SUV, giving it lighten-quick acceleration and slightly better gas mileage at a combined 24 MPG. Lastly, we should note that both SUVs come equipped with all-wheel drive (AWD).
