How Does Each Vehicle Perform?

With a 3.5L direct-injection V6 engine, the 2016 Acura MDX delivers 290 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque. And with its four-wheel independent MacPherson strut front and multi-link rear, the MDX has a wonderfully designed chassis to go along with that power. It offers a thrilling experience that has both the finesse and nuance to match its strength. And with an available 27 mpg* highway rating from the EPA, that power and performance doesn’t come at the expense of fuel economy!

With its 3.6L V6, the 2016 Buick Enclave can only come close the MDX, offering a maximum 288 horsepower. With 270 lb-ft of torque, the Enclave barely edges out the MDX by mismatching its torque and horsepower, which means it may drive aggressively and its accelerations won’t be smooth. And with a maximum EPA rating of 22 mpg* highway, the Enclave suffers from poor efficiency.

What About the Features?

  • Leather upholstery
  • Automatic climate control
  • Power tailgate
  • Voice recognition
