2018 Acura MDX with 2018 Honda Pilot

SUV drivers on the hunt for standard features have plenty of compelling options to choose from, but there are still significant differences between the segment’s top contenders. Although the 2018 Honda Pilot offers plenty of utility, drivers looking for high-end safety and technology features will find much more that excites them in the 2018 Acura MDX, one of Consumer Guide Automotive’s Best Buys! We’ve compared the baseline trim levels of each model, showing where the Acura’s offerings win out over the Honda’s Pilot’s standard features.

Safety Features You Can Count On!

Both the 2018 Honda Pilot and the 2018 Acura MDX are great options for families, but only one of these vehicles offers high-end protection right in its baseline trim level. Although both models have received comparable crash test ratings, drivers should note that AcuraWatch crash-avoidance technologies have been included as standard features in every single MDX. Similar features are only available in the Pilot’s EX-L, Touring, and Elite trim levels.

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System
  • Lane Departure Warning System
  • Lane Keeping Assist System

Both the Pilot and the MDX are spacious, well-apportioned, and capable of transporting the whole family while leaving plenty of room for cargo.
