Audi Q7 vs Acura MDX: Powertrains

The 2019 Audi Q7 offers two turbocharged engines in its powertrain lineup, including a standard 248-horsepower 2.0L TFSI® engine and an available 329-horsepower 3.0L TFSI® engine. Both come standardly paired to an intuitive 8-speed Tiptronic® automatic transmission and a quattro® all-wheel drivetrain.

The 2019 Acura MDX also offers two different engines to choose from. However, no matter which one you pick, you'll max out at a power output of 321 horsepower. This model also doesn't offer a standard all-wheel drive system, so you'll have to upgrade to access that.

Audi Q7 vs Acura MDX: Capability

The 2019 Audi Q7 isn't just nice to look at-it also puts the pedal to the metal when it comes to capability. When equipped with its available 3.0L TFSI® engine, this model is capable of towing up to a whopping 7,700 pounds of trailer weight. Take your Audi Q7 for a weekend trip with the family, and bring the family boat or camper along with ease.

The Audi Q7 doesn't stop there, though. This model also comes equipped with an Audi drive mode select system. Customize your drive with seven different drive modes including Dynamic, Comfort, Auto, Individual, Offroad, Allroad, and available Offroad/Lift.

Unfortunately, the 2019 Acura MDX can only tow up to 5,000 pounds of trailer weight when properly equipped. So, you'll have to leave some belongings behind when you take a trip. Additionally, this model doesn't offer a mode selector feature like the Audi drive mode select system.

Audi Q7 vs Acura MDX: Technology

Inside the 2019 Audi Q7, you'll find some incredible technology features that you won't find anywhere else. For starters, this model comes equipped with an Audi smartphone display as well as a 7-inch color center MMI® infotainment display. Use the former to stay connected using Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ and use the latter to follow navigation directions and make hands-free phone calls with Bluetooth®.

The Audi Q7 also offers Audi connect® capabilities, which includes a built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi® hotspot as well as an MMI® all-in-touch pad with state-of-the-art handwriting-recognition technology.

As for the 2019 Acura MDX, you'll have access to a few features like you'll find in the Audi Q7, including a touchscreen infotainment system and Bluetooth®. However, you'll miss out on having a Wi-Fi® hotspot and the handwriting capabilities of the MMI® system.
