John Eagle Acura – Comparing the 2018 Acura MDX in Houston to the Audi Q7

February 28th, 2018 by

What sets a vehicle apart from its competitor?  Is it design?  Features?  Acura vehicles set themselves apart by being engineered around you while offering superior command of whatever path you’re on.  One such vehicle is the 2018 Acura MDX in Houston, which tops the competition such as the 2018 Audi Q7.  You’ll find the Acura an easy choice because of its…

Better Transmission Options

What lies under the hood is just as important as how the vehicle looks.  For a more powerful and efficient engine system, the 2018 Acura MDX has a standard nine-speed automatic transmission which gives better acceleration and lower engine speed on the highway.  The Audi Q7 only has an eight-speed transmission.  The MDX also offers an available sequential manual gearbox (SMG).  This system has no clutch pedal to worry about along with it being in a fully automatic mode.  This gives the vehicle better efficiency and is easy to drive.  The Q7 does not offer this kind of feature,  

Built-in Efficiency

The Acura MDX has built-in efficiency features to not only make your vehicle go further but your wallet as well.  The MDX has an engine control system that can shut down half of the engine’s cylinders which can improve the MDX’s fuel efficiency.  One thing to take into consideration is that this feature is not factored into the EPA gas mileage of the MDX.  Another feature the MDX has is regenerative brakes on the Acura MDX Sport Hybrid.  This system can convert inertia from braking back into energy instead of wasting it.  The Audi Q7 does not have any of these features.  

Active Noise Cancellation

While driving, road noise can be one of the most annoying aspects.  Luckily, the 2018 Acura MDX has computer-generated active noise cancellation to help get rid of that pesky noise in the passenger compartment.  Even better, the active-noise cancellation works on low-frequency noises.  This way, your drive can be about the experiences and conversations or the thrill and excitement with the wheel in your hands.  The Audi Q7 does not have this feature either.

There’s so much to love about the 2018 Acura MDX in Houston.  If you are looking to learn more, or test drive one, come see us at John Eagle Acura today and experience the amazing 2018 Acura MDX.
