2021 Porsche Macan vs. 2021 Acura RDX

The 2021 Porsche Macan is definitely a ride that will leave you in awe. Aside from having an upscale cabin, and a sporty exterior, it also has muscular engines to power up your adventure. It has a long list of reliable technologies as well.

In the case of the 2021 Acura RDX, there are really no major changes when compared to its predecessor. It promises athletic handling and the usual long list of standard features. There is plenty of room in the cabin too.

Design & Style

With two rows of seats to accommodate five passengers without any hassle, the 2021 Porsche Macan is sure to impress in terms of its interior. The ride has well-padded seats and offers plenty of room to stretch in. Taller passengers will find it a breeze staying at the back of this ride. There are power-adjustable front seats too. Also standard in this ride is its leather upholstery. With its well-crafted cabin, all road noise is filtered, thus making the trip even more enjoyable.

The 2021 RDX, on the other hand, is gifted with power-adjustable front sport seats. This allows passengers to find a comfortable position during the trip. The seating for the two rows is supportive throughout, with an abundance of legroom on both rows. It is quite disappointing, though, that it only has synthetic leather upholstery as a standard.

Technology & Safety

The 2021 Macan uses a 10.9-inch reliable touch screen infotainment system that quickly responds to user inputs, and displays colorful, crisp graphics as well. The setup supports Apple CarPlay, together with other features like the navigation system, four USB ports, 10 speakers, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi hot spot and satellite radio. Safety features found in the ride are the front and rear parking sensors, lane departure warning, and rearview camera.

The Acura RDX is equipped with a 10.2-inch touch screen for its infotainment system. Displaying sharp graphics and responding quickly to user inputs, this one also has a touchpad controller. Climate control buttons are included but they are too small, that it is difficult to locate them. Other features include two USB ports, a Wi-Fi hot spot, HD radio, satellite radio, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay. Driver aids include automatic high-beam assist, rearview camera, lane departure warning, and adaptive cruise control, among others.


There are four engine variations for the Macan. This comes with a turbo four-cylinder engine that can generate up to 248 horsepower. Another one is a V6 that stomps 348 horsepower. There is a twin-turbo V6 that generates 375 horsepower, and another one that results in 434 horsepower. In the case of the RDX, it only has up to 272 horsepower of results for its inline-four-cylinder engine.

The Bottom Line

The 2021 Porsche Macan is indeed a better ride when compared to the 2021 Acura RDX. The former has been designed to suit the taste of adventurers out there.
