2023 Acura MDX vs. 2023 Genesis GV80 Technology Comparison

As with their interior features and comforts, both models are generous in cabin technology, but the GV80 doesn't offer anything you won't find in the 2023 Acura MDX. Indeed, the latest MDX boasts a sprawling 12.3-inch HD infotainment display with built-in Alexa capability, seamless smartphone integration, and an available Acura Navigation System with Voice Recognition. Bluetooth connectivity, 4G Wi-Fi hotspot capability, and wireless smartphone charging come standard across the new MDX lineup, as does a premium audio system with perfectly placed speakers and a subwoofer. As for the GV80, this Genesis model offers varied connectivity technology, but its infotainment display is awkwardly positioned atop the dash and far from the driver's reach.

2023 Acura MDX vs. 2023 Genesis GV80 Performance Comparison

Acura has a reputation for designing models that are fun to drive, and its largest SUV is no exception. With a robust V6 packing 290 horsepower, a smooth-shifting 10-speed transmission, and an Integrated Dynamics System, the 2023 MDX is responsive, swift, and adaptable to your driving preferences. Acura's Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system is offered across the lineup for surefooted, all-weather performance, and if you're craving an even more dynamic drive, the Type S trim can oblige with a turbo V6 that packs 355 horsepower. The Genesis GV80, by comparison, comes with a robust turbo engine of its own and produces a quiet ride with reliable cornering, but it lacks the engaging performance of the more athletic MDX.

2023 Genesis GV80 Interior

2023 Acura MDX vs. 2023 Genesis GV80 Style Comparison

Both these upscale SUVs enter the 2023 model year with some elegant designs, although the Acura MDX gets the nod. While its Genesis rival goes for a more understated exterior, the 2023 MDX is both sporty and sophisticated at once. Indeed, this new Acura SUV boasts sculpted bodywork, chrome accents, and a striking front end with Acura's patented grille and Jewel Eye LED headlights. The Genesis GV80, by comparison, can certainly turn some heads with its mature exterior, but it lacks the welcome touches of style of the MDX.

On the inside, the Acura MDX has an edge over the GV80, as it offers standard three-row seating, while the Genesis SUV's third row is optional and a little cramped. Both these upscale SUVs offer refined materials and numerous cabin comforts, but unlike the GV80, the new Acura MDX boasts a variety of versatile seating configurations to ensure that all your passengers enjoy optimal comfort. You can line your MDX's seats with leatherette, Ultrasuede, or perforated or quilted leather, while ambient lighting, power front seats with power lumbar support, and climate-controlled front seats are just a few of the MDX lineup's many available cabin features.
