Value Ranked 2019 Acura MDX FWD with Advance Package better.
"To me they are very competetive in handling, luxury, and power. The RDX is a little more adrenaline inducing and the x3 a little more refined."
Would Buy Ranked 2019 Acura MDX FWD with Advance Package worse.
"We did just buy a RWD 2019 x3, loaded with features, although we really liked the RDX a lot. The difference was a little more refined feel and the dealer was fantastic, extremely customer friendly. offered great extras—free servicing for 3,000 miles, and unlimited car washes, and was willing to take some $4,000 off MSRP. and was in our local area. Acura not willing to negotiate, apparently because the 2019 is a brand new and upgraded model from the 2018–although very friendly."
