How Does the Acura MDX Compare to the Honda Pilot?

2018 Acura MDX Backseat

Finding an SUV that has it all gets easier every year! The 2018 Honda Pilot has plenty to offer the drivers of Kansas City, but when we compare it to a luxury option like the 2018 Acura MDX, it’s not hard to see why our friends and neighbors prefer the Acura. The Pilot won one of Consumer Guide Automotive’s Best Buy Awards because it possesses a “sporty driving character, a high level of cabin refinement, and a fine selection of high-tech features,” and when all is said and done, the Acura MDX’s standard features win out. We’ve compared each model’s baseline trim level to show you how they measure up.
