Honda Pilot vs. Acura MDX: Starting Price

First off, we should talk about the starting price and how that impacts your Methuen drive. Pilot drivers can tell you that they got a great deal on their SUV, and it shows in the starting MSRP, which is much lower for the Pilot than the MDX. Pilot drivers can get the best without going over budget, and that difference in price gives you plenty of room to equip the Pilot with available features and accessories. Take a look at the starting prices of the Honda Pilot vs. the Acura MDX:

2021 Honda Pilot Starting Price

  • Starting MSRP of $32,550*

2022 Acura MDX Starting Price

  • Starting MSRP of $44,500

Honda Pilot vs. Acura MDX: Interior

These two SUVs have made quite a splash with Haverhill drivers because they have ample room and a technologically advanced interior. However, the Pilot offers seating for eight as opposed to the MDX, which only offers seating for seven. Moving things in and out is a lot easier because the Pilot has customizable 60/40 split-folding 2nd and 3rd-row seats while the MDX has a 50/50 split 3rd row and 60/40 split 2nd row, making the cargo job just a tiny bit more difficult.
