<span style=”color: #ffffff;”>Acura’s known for producing phenomenal SUVs in the form of the <span style=”color: #0000ff;”><a style=”color: #0000ff;” href=”http://www.acuraofchattanooga.com/models/acura-mdx/”>MDX</a></span> and<span style=”color: #0000ff;”> <a style=”color: #0000ff;” href=”http://www.acuraofchattanooga.com/models/acura-rdx/”>RDX</a></span>. Critics agree, with <span style=”color: #0000ff;”><em><a style=”color: #0000ff;” href=”https://www.kbb.com/acura/mdx/2017/” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”>Kelley Blue Book</a></em></span> praising the new MDX’s “standout safety features,” “long list of amenities,” and “plenty of power,” while<span style=”color: #0000ff;”> <em><a style=”color: #0000ff;” href=”https://www.edmunds.com/acura/rdx/2017/review/” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”>Edmunds</a></em></span> hails the RDX as “one of our top picks in the segment.” And to top it off, both models are available with all-wheel drive—but there are some differences between their AWD systems.</span>

    <h2><span style=”color: #ffffff;”>What the Difference Between the Acura RDX and MDX AWD Systems?</span></h2>
    <span style=”color: #ffffff;”>As we said, these two SUVs offer different AWD systems: The RDX can be had with All-Wheel Drive with Intelligent Control System, while the MDX offers the Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®) system. Here’s a look at each:</span>
    <li><span style=”color: #ffffff;”><strong>Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™</strong>: This system continuously directs engine power to match the vehicle’s weight distribution, traction, and other conditions. It also favors efficiency: when cruising in a straight line in ideal conditions, it can send up to 90% of the vehicle’s power to the front wheels.</span></li>
    <li><span style=”color: #ffffff;”><strong>All-Wheel Drive with Intelligent Control System</strong>: In normal cruising conditions, this system directs 100% of torque to the front wheels, but can split power 50/50 between front and rear wheels as conditions dictate.</span></li>
    <span style=”color: #ffffff;”>We think you’ll be thrilled with the RDX or MDX, but you really have to drive them for yourself to see which is right for you. To take a test-drive, <span style=”color: #0000ff;”><a style=”color: #0000ff;” href=”http://www.acuraofchattanooga.com/contact-us/”>visit our dealership</a></span> at 2131 Chapman Rd. in Chattanooga, TN.</span>
