FUEL TANK SIZE
Your car looks great in your driveway and out on the road. No matter where you’re travelling, the 2022 Audi Q7 and the Acura MDX are ready for any adventure.
If you’re looking to upgrade your adventure with a trailer or a boat, turn to the Q7 with its maximum towing capacity of 3,493 kilograms (7,700 pounds). The MDX has a maximum capacity of 2,268 kilograms (5,000 pounds). Choose the Q7 and you can tow:
- A water ski boat
- A lightweight camper
- A heavily loaded utility trailer
When you’re out driving, the last thing you’ll want to do is have to stop to refuel. The 2022 Audi Q7 has a fuel consumption of 12.0 city/9.4 highway L/100 km, while the MDX achieves 12.6 city/9.4 highway L/100 km, which is sure to help you stay on the road.*
Such impressive fuel economy is bound to have you spending more time behind the wheel, so it’s important you stay engaged, connected, and comfortable in your ride. The 2022 Audi Q7 achieves that with advanced systems for infotainment and safety.
A 10.1-inch upper display for entertainment and an 8.6-inch lower touchscreen to manage climate controls in the Q7. Handwriting recognition is also available, so you can write destinations into your navigation system with ease.
The Acura MDX does have an expansive entertainment system to offer you, but dual screens are not available. Instead, you’ll need to toggle back and forth between screens to manage your controls. Additionally, while this display does have a touchpad interface, handwriting technology isn’t available.
The safety systems in the Audi Q7 and Acura MDX are closely matched. Both models feature a forward collision warning that can step in and apply brake pressure in an emergency. This could help mitigate the impact or possibly avoid it altogether at low speeds.
Three rows of seats in both the Audi Q7 and the Acura MDX means that you’ll be able to bring along all your friends and family for fun. The question is: Which SUV will keep you more comfortable on those long rides?
The Q7 has a comfort advantage, thanks to its standard leather-trimmed seats. The Acura MDX, on the other hand, comes standard with synthetic leather. The Q7 is also available with 4-zone climate control system, while the MDX only comes with Tri-zone front and rear synchronized automatic climate control.
On those long road trips, you can stream your favourite tunes with Apple CarPlay® in both models. Only the Bang & Olufsen Advanced Sound System in the Audi Q7, however, comes with 3D Sound, which completely immerses you.
The time has come for you to decide on your next ride. Will it be the 2022 Audi Q7 or the Acura MDX?
