2019 Toyota Sequoia vs. 2019 Acura MDX

Toyota and Acura are two of the most renowned car brands in the market, known for their extensive range of models, including the likes of 2019 Acura MDX and the 2019 Toyota Sequoia. Let us do a brief comparison to understand the key highlights of these models.

Design & Style

The 2019 Acura MDX is a 7-seater car that comes with an optional second-row captain's chairs. The front seats are excellent, with ample support and comfort on offer, but the second row is equally disappointing. It looks good with plenty of soft-touch surfaces, but there are cheap looking plastic pieces as well. If you are expecting a jaw-dropping interior, you will be disappointed big time.

On the other hand, the 2019 Toyota Sequoia comes with a 7-seater space along with an optional second-row captain's chair. You can get ample support and space in both the rows, and unlike other rivals, the third row is spacious as well. The cargo space is enough to fit a dozen shopping bags.

Technology & Safety

The 2019 Acura MDX comes equipped with a dual-screen infotainment system featuring Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, satellite radio, 8-speaker audio system, Bluetooth, USB and 8-inch display. It may seem to be a high-tech system, but honestly, it is not as intuitive as other rival systems. You will need some practice to figure out things since two screens control different functionalities. In terms of safety, you have adaptive cruise control, a rearview camera, automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, road departure mitigation and lane departure warning.

The 2019 Toyota Sequoia comes equipped with an Entune infotainment interface that comes with an 8-speaker system, satellite radio, USB port and Bluetooth. Some of the available features included the rear-seta Blu-ray entertainment system and navigation system. Safety features include a rearview camera, blind-spot monitoring, rear parking sensors and rear cross-traffic alert.


Performance is a crucial talking point when we compare two cars. Speaking of which, the 2019 Acura MDX comes equipped with a 290-HP V6 powertrain. It has a solid engine, but not a spectacular one. It delivers ample acceleration and power for daily driving situations but doesn't feel energetic on highways. This is where Toyota Sequoia is a clear winner, with its 381-HP V8 engine

The Bottom Line

If you are in the market to buy a luxury midsize SUV, you have every reason to check out both these models. Toyota Sequoia deserves a special mention, as it is known to deliver strong performance, and a classy interior loaded with plenty of features. Acura MDX may be a good choice, but it misses out a few key features which you will find in Toyota.
