Here at Pohanka Acura, we know your time is valuable, and we have compared the 2016 Acura MDX vs 2016 Land Rover LR4 near Gaithersburg, MD, for you.

Both of these exciting new luxury SUVs bring you immense power from their V6 engines.

The V6 in the LR4 guzzles your fuel with a rating of 15/19/16 MPG city/hwy/combined1. However, the V6 in the MDX only takes sips of your fuel with a rating of 19/26/22 MPG city/hwy/combined2.

You expect state-of-the-art features within a new luxury SUV, and our look at the 2016 Acura MDX vs 2016 Land Rover LR4 near Gaithersburg, MD, makes it clear which choice gives you more. For starters, the brilliant LED Jewel Eye® headlights on the MDX create an elegant appearance. Not only are they stunning, but each of the five individual LED lights produce a whiter, brighter beam, lighting up I-370 once the sun sets. LED headlights are not offered in the LR4. During cold East Coast winters, the MDX keeps you warm with standard heated front seats, which only come in higher trims of the LR4. On the opposite end, during summer, the MDX keeps you cool with ventilated front seats, a feature not available at all in the LR4. Also, the Acura MDX comes with Rear Entertainment System, so your second- and third-row passengers are sure to be entertained on road trips to Harrisburg. Such a system is only available in top trims of the Land Rover LR4.

In the 2016 MDX, it’s all about control. For instance, control how much cargo you want to load inside, as the third-row seat comes with a standard split for versatility. The third-row bench in the 2016 LR4 comes standard as only folding flat, with a split in top trims. Your rear passengers can control the temperature in back of your MDX with standard rear seat air control, a feature only found in top trims of the LR4. Additionally, with the MDX’s voice recognition system, you can change the air conditioning, the song on the radio, update the navigation system3, and make phone calls using Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink4, all with a simple command of your voice. In the LR4, you can only use your voice to make a call using Bluetooth®4.
