Can the VW Atlas Measure Up to the Acura MDX?

Acura MDX

The drivers of Kansas City have heard quite a bit about the new 2018 Volkswagen Atlas, but at the end of the day, this VW just can’t compete with one of the best three-row SUVs on the market! According to the experts at The Car Connection, the “2018 Acura MDX should be atop many lists for luxury buyers looking for spacious family crossovers,” and it’s easy to see why. Across their available trim levels, the updated Acura MDX offers a whole lot more than this competitor.

The MDX Wins Out

To help drivers get a sense of how these three-row SUVs compare, we’ve taken a closer look at two similarly priced trim levels. The 2018 Acura MDX SH-AWD is priced at $46,200 MSRP*, while the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas 3.6L V6 SEL Premium 4MOTION is priced at $48,740 MSRP. For drivers who choose the MDX, the savings don’t end there. The MDX has received superior 3-Year and 5-Year Residual Value estimates, and it’s more efficient across all environments. Standard Paddle Shifters and Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive technology make the Acura MDX incredibly fun to drive—and they’re not the only standard features that set the MDX apart. We’ve listed its advantages below!

  • Adaptive Variable Suspension
  • Trailer Stability Assist
  • Noise/Sound Cancellation
  • Compact Disk Player
  • Speed Sensing Interval Wipers
  • Automatic Tilt Away Column
  • 2-Position Memory Steering Column
