Audi Q7 vs. Acura MDX: Top Performance Specs

Two engines are found on both the MDX or Q7, including an available 3.0L V6 engine. Choose to upgrade to these top-tier engines though, and you won't get the same performance specs: 

  • 2021 Audi Q7 - 335 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque produced by the available 3.0L V6
  • 2020 Acura MDX - 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque produced by the available 3.0L V6

While the top trim engines leave the MDX lacking, the standard drivetrains also have the MDX coming up short. While the Q7 provides the enhanced control and power offered by Audi quattro® all-wheel drive, only FWD is offered standard in the MDX.

Audi Q7 vs. Acura MDX: Interior Touches

If you're looking for premium features like power seats with lumbar support, tri-zone climate control, or Bluetooth® capabilities, they can be had in either the MDX or Q7.

These standard Q7 features will cost you more in the MDX SUV.
