Default Acura RDX VS. MDX VS. Infiniti EX?

Don't know about the EX (FX?)However, the RDX can be likened to a Honda CRV on steroids...it's a small SUV. It sports ACURA luxura upgrades, and is the only Acura/Honda to use a turbocharger. It's drivetrain is similar to the TSX, but again, it's got a turbocharger. It makes lots of torque, and the car's Super All Wheel Handling & sport tuning enables it to handle & perform quite well. The MDX might be likened more to a Honda Pilot on steroids. And in addtion to luxury refinements, it sports the new J37 motor, that cranks 300HP. The car, like the RDX, has Super Handling All Wheel Drive.Cars purchases are a lot about personal preferences. Personally, I've stayed with Honda/Acura products...they're a fine company, a world leader in engineering, inovation, performance and build quality. IMO, you won't go wrong should you select either the RDX or the new MDX.

The FX ,while a fine vehicle, has a very cramped rear seat. If I were to chose of the 3, I would go with MDX because it has the most room and gets mileage similar to the RDX.

The Infiniti EX is superior and lacks only in rear occupant room.

I know seat size is important to your family, but remember to check mileage. A friend of mine had an EX and the mileage was horrible - something close to 10mpg in the city. She loved the car, but wasn't happy with the mileage.

The EX is way too new to compare, but it is similar to the Nissan Rogue. The MDX is the biggest vehicle, can hold 7, but if there is only the 3 of you, I'd say the RDX. Lots of space both front and back, very nice inside, the only downside, with the Turbo, fuel economy really suffers. If you want a less fancy version with much better fuel economy get the Honda CRV.

see link for comparison between, RDX, MDX, EX and FX ... if you want a more sporty ride and more compact vehicle you may want to lean toward the RDX and the EX. The MDX is larger and more family oriented vehicle- but still handle well. The Infiniti FX differs from the EX as it is a bit higher off the ground, a bit bigger, and has a harsher-sportier ride ... think you are pretty much winning any direction that you go. It might just come down to price, looks, and options... good luck ...

The RDX is most fun to drive and smallest.The EX is about the same size, but the cheapest.The MDX is most popular. Biggest. Has the best reviews. Has the smoothest ride and quietest ride.If you only have 3 family members, just get a small sedan with a big trunk or a hatchback like a VW Golf/Rabbit or a Stationwagon.

Well overall MDX is like the best out of all but also the most expensive. RDX and EX are both around their 30,000 range. MDX is around the 40,000 range. MDX is a great car I would recommend it. It has 300 horsepower which is incredibly crazy for an SUV but if it is a Family Luxury car I'd still go for the MDX. The MDX is wide which is nice and you won't be cramped up. Very luxurious nice interior. And a very nice exterior. Definately it would beat the two cars but if you want to go for something cheap then I'd say you go for either the EX or RDX. MDX would be my go. Just a special note for Spammer (Below my post) These cars would be the best for a not extremely expensive family luxury car. Sure Toyota could go there but he didn't. If you're talking about Mazda's then thats a whole different story (Mazda's suck really bad). BMWs, Audis, and Mercedes are a whole different story. Lexus GX is horrible its thin as hell. No kidding you will get cramped up. All the land cruisers again another story. And Range Rovers another story.
