2021 Porsche Macan vs. 2022 Acura MDX

If you are looking for a ride that will give you that rewarding feeling, you will never go wrong choosing the 2021 Porsche Macan. The comfortable ride is gifted with an intuitive touch screen interface, ready to display crisp graphics for every user command. It also has a masculine physique, and powerful engines to equal that.

The 2022 Acura MDX, on the other hand, has a well-built interior that has plenty of standard features to offer. It is a completely redesigned version of the 2021 edition.

Design & Style

The 2021 Porsche Macan is a ride that has two rows to accommodate five passengers. This vehicle is well-padded on the front seats with plenty of room to stretch even for taller occupants. It has a quiet cabin that guarantees minimum road noise during a trip. It comes standard with power-adjustable front seats and leather upholstery. This is one sturdy compact SUV that will surely impress.

The 2022 Acura MDX is gifted with plenty of space especially in the cargo area. This space can expand to hold 71.4 cubic feet of cargo if the first two rows are not in use and are folded. Accommodating up to seven people, this one can be reconfigured to just sit six. It looks nice, but does not have the same modern and classy vibe as that of the Macan.

Technology & Safety

The 2021 Macan is equipped with an infotainment system that is paired with a user-friendly 10.9-inch touch screen interface. Its display quickly responds to user commands, plus it displays colorful and crisp graphics too. This supports Apple CarPlay, and all other technological features like Bluetooth, 10-speaker stereo, four USB ports, satellite radio, navigation system, and Wi-Fi hot spot. Safety wise, it has front and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera and lane departure warning, among others.

Gifted with a bigger 12.3-inch display when compared to that of the Macan’s, one might be easily deceived by the 2022 Acura MDC. This one, however, uses a touchpad controller which somehow makes it feel and look dated. Safety driver aids include automatic emergency braking, driver drowsiness monitoring, and pedestrian detection, among others.


The Porsche Macan gives users an option to choose from four engines, each found under the hood of the particular model that they will order. In the base engine, for instance, results register at 248 horsepower. That of the V6 in the Macan S delivers 348 horsepower. Stomping power for the GTS, on the other hand, is a V6 twin-turbo that can stomp up to 375 horsepower. Meanwhile, there is one more model that is gifted with an engine that results in 434 horsepower.

The 2022 MDX carries a sole V6 engine across all its models. This one gives off 290 horsepower, a number way lower than the V6 results for the Macan.

The Bottom Line

The 2022 Acura MDS may be newer, but it does not have the same flair, opulence, reliability, and power as the one exuded by the Macan. The Porsche is definitely a better choice over the Acura.
