In the battle for the midsize luxury crossover SUV, the 2017 Acura MDX and the 2017 Porsche Cayenne prove quite competitive. Both provide confident power from V6 engines, but the newest Acura MDX comes out ahead in terms of advanced technology from the start of the lineup, passenger and cargo space, and price. Find out the advantages of owning or leasing a 2017 Acura MDX from First Acura.

High-Tech, Luxurious Features


The introductory 2017 Acura MDX model comes generously equipped, especially when you examine its technological features. You can expect two dashboard displays—a 7-inch touchscreen and an 8-inch regular screen above it—along with five USB outlets and Siri Eyes Free voice controls. Plus, you’ll enjoy tri-zone automatic climate control and full leather upholstery throughout the cabin. On the first trim in the 2017 Porsche Cayenne lineup, you’ll have a singular 7-inch touchscreen and no voice-activated controls, and you’ll only have dual-zone automatic climate control. What’s more, it only comes adorned with partial leather upholstery.

Interior Dimensions

As a three-row midsize luxury crossover SUV, the 2017 Acura MDX has the capacity to seat up to eight people—or seven, if you go with second-row captain’s chairs. Standard cargo volume measures 15.8 cubic feet, but when you fold the rear seats flat, you’ll have 90.9 cubic feet at your disposal. Meanwhile, the 2017 Porsche Cayenne can only seat five people, and its cargo volume only reaches 62.9 cubic feet.



The greatest perk is that all of the 2017 Acura MDX’s clear advantages come at a lower price tag, yet it doesn’t compromise opulence. The 2017 Porsche Cayenne, on the other hand, costs thousands more and doesn’t offer quite as much as its Acura counterpart.

  • 2017 Acura MDX: MSRP from $44,050*
  • 2017 Porsche Cayenne: MSRP from $59,600
