The 2017 Honda Pilot and 2017 Acura MDX are similar three-row crossover SUVs—both sitting on similar platforms, both offered with all-wheel drive, and both coming standard with a 3.5L V6 engine. There are a number of differences to consider, though, and for many folks throughout Montana and Wyoming, the new Honda Pilot will likely prove the smarter choice. Find out how the two crossovers compare when placed side by side, and make it to Underriner Honda in Billings, MT when you’re ready to check out the new Honda Pilot.


The 2017 Honda Pilot and 2017 Acura MDX are both offered with a host of premium features, from leather upholstery and power adjustable and heated front seats to a premium infotainment interface with smartphone app integration. However, when you’re looking to save more money, the 2017 Honda Pilot is clearly the way to go. The Pilot has an MSRP starting at $30,745* for the base trim, while the Elite trim level comes in at $47,220* MSRP. Compare that to the Acura MDX, which starts at a much more expensive $44,050 MSRP and goes all the way up to $56,500 for a fully loaded model with the Advance and Entertainment Packages.

Passenger and Cargo Space

If you’re looking for the vehicle that will be able to satisfy your demanding driving needs in terms of passenger and cargo space, the Honda Pilot is again the way to go. The Pilot has standard seating for up to eight passengers inside a vehicle with a total interior volume of 170.2 cubic feet. You’ll also get 16.5 cubic feet of dedicated cargo space in back and a max cargo volume of 83.9 cubic feet. The Acura MDX, by contrast, only has standard seating for seven and a total interior volume of 147.6 cubic feet. Behind the rear seat, the MDX tops out at 14.9 cubic feet for storage, and even when you fold the seats down you can’t get more than 68.4 cubic feet for storage.
