2016 Lexus GX460 vs. 2016 Acura MDX in Houston

July 21st, 2016 by
Acura is leading the pack with its available SUVs, and the 2016 Acura MDX is proof of that! Rivals of the Acura MDX in Houston, like the Lexus GX460, try to steal the spotlight but the features of the Acura MDX are too good to beat! John Eagle Acura is comparing these two SUVs side by side to show you why the Acura MDX should be your top choice for a new SUV in Houston.
Passenger and Cargo Space
  • The Acura MDX offers more passenger volume than the Lexus GX460 so your passengers will be more comfortable on the drive.
  • Extra cargo space and a low lift-over cargo hatch design on the MDX allows you to haul more cargo and access it easier than in the GX460.
  • The MDX’s liftgate opens up in one piece but the GX460’s swing door blocks loading from both sides of the vehicle.
  • A standard power cargo door that opens and closes with the touch of a button comes with the MDX for easier loading and unloading. The GX460 doesn’t offer a power cargo door.
Fuel Economy
  • Go the extra mile in the Acura MDX 4WD that gets an EPA estimated 18 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway*. The Lexus GX460 only gets an estimated 15 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway.
  • The MDX has an optional system that will turn off the engine automatically when stopped in heavy traffic or at stoplights, and restart when moving again. This conserves fuel and reduces pollution.
  • The GX460 doesn’t offer this fuel saving feature.
Convenient Features
  • If you accidentally leave your windows down on the MDX, all windows can be raised using the key in the outside lock cylinder. Windows can only be raised or lowered in the GX460 with the ignition on.
  • The MDX’s standard speed-sensitive wipers do the work for you, but the GX460’s wipers will have to be constantly adjusted.
  • Power mirrors are mounted on the armrest for easy access in the MDX but the GX460’s controls aren’t as convenient.
