2022 Porsche Macan vs. 2022 Acura MDX

Gifted with an athletic body, and upgraded engines, the 2022 Porsche Macan knows how to impress car buyers out there. This has the adept handling to back up those of its varied engine performances. The ride also has comfortable seats inside, with a first-rate interior awaiting its “guests”.

When it comes to the 2022 Acura MDX, you will notice that it has standard features that you will appreciate. The interior is impressive too, since it decided to refresh the look of its predecessor.

Design & Style

Carrying some of the most premium materials that define the luxury it offers, the 2022 Porsche Macan definitely has that modern vibe to it. The ride incorporates a great amount of space for its five occupants, regardless if they are tall or short, big or small. It also has ample space for cargo, leaving 52.9 cubic feet of space when only the front seats are in use.

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 2022 Porsche Macan has a user-friendly infotainment setup. This interface replies quickly to user inputs too. Included in the base package are tri-zone automatic climate control, wireless Apple CarPlay, Wi-Fi hot spot, Bluetooth, USB ports, satellite radio, 10 speakers, and a 10.9-inch touch screen. When talking about safety, it is gifted with lane departure warning, a rearview camera, and front and rear parking sensors.

Equipped with a bigger 12.3-inch display when compared to that of the Macan’s, one might be easily deceived by the 2022 Acura MDX. 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.


One of the things that the 2022 Porsche Macan updated is its engines for various models. The base variant now spruces off 261 horsepower with a turbo-four setup. That of the twin-turbo V6 in the S variant results in 375 horsepower, while the one under the hood of the GTS creates 434 horsepower. Using a sole V6 engine for all its models, the MDX 2022 version releases 290 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

The 2022 Porsche Macan proves that all its updates are well-worth it. The ride does not disappoint considering all aspects compared above. That of the 2022 Acura MDX needs some more polishing to make it run closely to that of the Macan.
