Go the extra mile in the Acura MDX in Houston that offers an impressive fuel economy. The MDX with Start/Stop SH-AWD gets an EPA estimated 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway*. However, the Mercedes GL-Class only gets and EPA estimated 17 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway, which is quite a difference. In addition to better gas mileage, the MDX also comes with an engine control system that can shut down half of the engine’s cylinders to further improve fuel efficiency but the GL-Class doesn’t have a comparable feature.

You can never have too many safety features and the Acura MDX offers a wide variety to keep you feeling safe and sound as you travel to your destination.
