Compare: 2022 Acura MDX vs. 2022 BMW X7

The Acura MDX has entered its new model year with a reimagined design, a bevy of comforts and safety features, and a formidable powertrain. This upscale Acura SUV more than holds its own against the competition, and we've decided to prove it by comparing the 2022 MDX to the new BMW X7. If you're eyeing a new SUV and based in Maple, Mississauga, Vaughan, or North York, Ontario, find out how the latest Acura MDX stacks up against its BMW rival below before visiting our Maple Acura dealership, where it's proudly featured in our new inventory.

Comfort & Convenience Comparison:

This year's Acura MDX boasts a full redesign both inside and out, and we're ecstatic to report its cabin has it all. Indeed, this upscale SUV comes with loads of room for up to seven passengers over three rows of supportive, comfortable seating, while its stunning dash design is available in refined, French-stitched leather for an added touch of class. The 2022 Acura MDX's style also offers various luxury materials, from open-pore wood to piano-black accents to metal trim. As for its creature comforts, this upscale Acura SUV has everything you could want and then some, with the lineup including your choice of leatherette or genuine leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats with both lumbar support and a memory function, and standard tri-zone automatic temperature control for a personalized experience.

The 2022 BMW X7, by comparison, comes with various luxury materials and comforts of its own, but enjoying them can be frustrating. Not only is this SUV's third row tight on passenger space, but its power-operated middle row also adjusts very slowly, making it difficult to clear the way for rear row passengers.

Performance Comparison

The 2022 Acura MDX is as generous in power as it is in comforts and amenities. A base 3.5-litre V6 engine boasts a solid 290 horsepower, while an available 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 is even more robust with 355 horsepower. Acura has treated the new MDX to a smooth-shifting 10-speed automatic gearbox that replaces the old nine-speed offering, with a patented Integrated Dynamics System coming standard to give you a personalized ride with several different drive settings that can meet your needs, habits, and mood. The 2022 MDX also comes with a standard Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system that maintains a composed ride with enhanced traction, as well as crisp, agile handling and responsive acceleration that will steal the hearts of driving enthusiasts.

As for its BMW rival, the 2022 X7 offers several peppy powertrain options, including a base turbocharged V6, and treats drivers to quick acceleration while keeping engine noise to a minimum. That said, this BMW SUV's composure is a little shaky when braving uneven stretches of road, and it tends to lean too much when cornering. If you're craving a more powerful motor, you'll also have to break your bank, as the new X7's brawnier models come at a far heftier price tag than the MDX.

    Safety Features Comparison

    The latest MDX can hang with the best of them in the safety department, as it offers a vast and extensive lineup of features and driver-assist functions. Indeed, the 2022 Acura MDX's safety suite includes valuable features like a Collision Mitigation Braking System that comes with pedestrian detection, Traffic Jam Assist, a Lane Keeping Assist System, and a Blind Spot Information system that helps you change lanes safely. This new SUV also comes with Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow, which keeps your MDX at a set distance from vehicles ahead and ensures that you're always cruising in total comfort. The new BMW X7, by comparison, is generous enough in safety and driver-assist technology, but there's nothing in its lineup you won't find in the MDX's standard suite for a more affordable price.
