The 2016 Honda Pilot and the 2016 Acura MDX are two popular options for those looking for an SUV. While both are midsize SUVs, the Acura falls in the luxury vehicle class. So looking at the two vehicles, there are quite a few differences, but quite a few similarities as well.

Power and Performance
The 2016 Honda Pilot is powered by a 3.5-liter i-VTEC V6 engine with direct injection that produces 280 horsepower. This engine is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission and features Variable Cylinder Management.
In terms of driving dynamics, the vehicle offers an incredible ride and excellent pickup, especially at highway speeds. If you’re looking for a comfortable vehicle for daily use around West Palm Beach, Boca Raton, and Greenacres, the Honda Pilot is an excellent option.
The 2016 Acura MDX offers a comparable engine. The 3.5-liter 24-valve SOHC i-VTEC engine does produce slightly more power at 290, but the higher price tag may have you wondering if it’s worth the investment for such a slight power gain.
While the vehicle is more expensive than the Pilot, the vehicle’s ride quality is about the same. So if you’re looking for that smooth, confident drive while still maintaining your family’s budget, the 2016 Honda Pilot may be the best choice for you.
Standard and Optional Features
In terms of features, the 2016 Honda Pilot and the Acura MDX are surprisingly similar despite their starting price difference. The 2016 Honda Pilot comes standard with a 4.2-inch multi-information display, a multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines, push button start, and a 5-inch color LCD audio display system with the 200-watt audio system with seven speakers, including a subwoofer.
The 2016 Acura MDX offers a beautiful color touchscreen audio display comparable to the upgrade option of the Pilot. The vehicle also offers a standard multi-view rearview camera.
Overall, though, the 2016 MDX doesn’t really offer a lot more standard features than the Honda Pilot, leaving many prospective buyers wondering if it’s truly worth the larger investment.
