Lincoln MKX vs Acura RDX near Pittsburgh, PA


Compare the 2018 Lincoln MKX & the 2017 Acura RDX: Two Impressive Automobiles in the Competitive Luxury Compact SUV Segment!

The luxury crossover SUV market is becoming increasingly competitive, and two standouts surely are the 2018 Lincoln MKX and the 2017 Acura RDX. If you are considering which of these two vehicles are better suited to meet your needs, allow the comparison below to offer some guidance.

Power Under the Hood & Driving Performance

The 2018 Lincoln MKX finds a perfect balance of power and efficiency, while remaining remarkably quiet and comfortable at high speeds. Equip this SUV with the 2.7-liter GTDI V6 engine and you will have an exhilarating 335 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque ready to be unleashed with the push of the gas pedal! While the 3.5-liter engine of the 2017 Acura RDX may be slightly larger, it maxes out at 279 horsepower and 252 pound-feet of torque and simply cannot keep up with the Lincoln MKX.

Another aspect that cannot be matched is the superb driving control that the Lincoln MKX offers. Through the use of Electric Power-Assisted Steering (EPAS), Continuously Controlled Damping (CCD), Intelligent All-Wheel Drive and Active Noise Control, you will enjoy a combination of outstanding handling and reduced outside noise to provide for an overall better drive! While AWD is available for the Acura RDX, it fails to reach the same levels of precise control and agility of the 2017 Lincoln MKX.

Luxurious Features

You wouldn't be considering either of these automobiles if you were not interested in luxury. Below you can find some key differences in what luxurious features are and are not included with the 2018 Lincoln MKX and the 2017 Acura RDX.

  • You can equip the Lincoln MKX with an advanced built-in navigation system. This feature is not available on base level trims of the Acura RDX, and you have to upgrade to more expensive technology packages if navigation is a must-have.
  • Enhanced Active Park Assist will make parking easier than ever if you choose the Lincoln brand. A Rear Parking Aid feature comes standard for the Lincoln MKX, while it is an available optional upgrade for the Acura RDX.
  • The Lincoln MKX provides more head room, leg room, shoulder room and overall passenger volume in both the front and second row, when compared to interior room of the Acura RDX. This is certainly something to think about if you are concerned with comfortability.
