2017 Acura MDX vs 2017 Audi Q7 near Chicago, IL

Vehicle shown above (left) is the 2017 Acura MDX with Advantage package in White Diamond Pearl and accessory Berlina Black Alloy Wheels.

The competition among the vehicles in the three-row luxury SUV segment has always been fierce, and this year’s 2017 models are no exception. Find yourself behind the wheel of one that checks off every item on your list by coming down to McGrath Acura to check out this 2017 Acura MDX vs 2017 Audi Q7 near Chicago, IL, comparison. There will be no doubt in your mind that the MDX surpasses the Audi Q7 in almost every way once you experience the vast number of standard amenities in the MDX.

Let’s begin our comparison by seeing what’s powering both of these three-row luxury SUVs forward. The Audi Q7 already falls behind severely with its miniscule 2.0L engine, whereas the Acura MDX starts off with a standard 3.5L powertrain. Generating an impressive 290 horsepower, along with a fuel-efficient rating of 27 MPG hwy1, the MDX will take you far and get you to your destination in a hurry. The less thrilling engine of the Audi Q7 only manages to produce a mere 252 horsepower and has a fuel rating of just 25 MPG hwy2, which means your trips down Michigan Avenue will be halted by frequent trips to the gas station.

Space is another area that favors the MDX in this 2017 Acura MDX vs 2017 Audi Q7 near Chicago, IL, competition. Head out for a day at Oak Street Beach with your crew and put all of your towels and beachwear in the 15.8 cubic ft. of space3 that is available behind the third row in the Acura MDX. A couple of your passengers may be holding their wet clothes at the end of the day in the Audi Q7, as it only offers 14.8 cubic ft. of room4  behind its third row. If it’s just you heading to North Avenue Beach for a morning paddle-board ride, fold down both rear seats to access a generous 90.9 cubic ft. of cargo space3 for your board in the MDX. With only 71.6 cubic ft. of total cargo volume4 in the Audi Q7, you may not have room to bring some of your beach toys.

No vehicle would be complete without all of the technology integrated into it, which is why the Acura MDX not only features one 7-inch touchscreen in its center console, but also an additional 8-inch display screen above it for full connectivity on its base trim. The Audi Q7 only has one 7-inch central display screen on its base trim. With no less than five USB ports on its base model, the MDX lets both you and your passengers keep your devices powered up at all times. Passengers in the Q7 may feel left out on the other hand, as it only comes standard with two USB ports.

As the winner of this 2017 Acura MDX vs 2017 Audi Q7 near Chicago, IL, comparison the MDX has proven it is the better choice. Visit McGrath Acura as soon as today to check out more splendid features of the Acura MDX. We hope to see you soon!

I recently worked with Daniel Harrison at McGrath - great experience. We saw the car online, called to inquire, a visit later it was mine! Daniel is very knowledgeable about all the features of the MDX I purchased. Very informative, no pressure sales pitch either. He answered all my questions and was very easy to work with. We purchased on a Sat, so there was a small wait for financing but once inside the office it was so quick! He had all the documents ready and off we went. I would highly recommend working with Daniel.

As we all know car buying can be a tedious process when dealing with dealerships that claim their know how but fail at execution. My experience with McGrath Acura of Morton Grove was completely different and I was in and out with a car within ONE HOUR! Let me tell you that my previous car deal lasted 6 hours in the dealership! Every person down the line from sales consultant Daniel H (went above and beyond) to the sales manager Elson Y and finance manager Ronnie A was a pleasure to deal with. Everyone was professional and handled their role with know how. Whoever runs the training program across McGrath should get an award for customer service and training! Overall this experience was amazing and I am now a life long customer!

I came from out of state to look at a used car and didn't really expect much, but from the first inquiry off the website, McGrath stayed in contact and kept communications crystal clear. The car was clean and prepped and ready for me to check even though there was a winter storm in progress. Daniel Harrison was my sales person and he performed like a pro. He was friendly, informative and knew the answers to all my questions. From sales to finance to the guys who prepped the car,the whole team at McGrath made my purchase very comfortable and easy.

I have an aversion to car dealerships, but this review is specifically for the service department here at McGrath Acura in Morton Grove. I have an Acura MDX that I didn't buy from them, yet because it's a luxury car, I'd prefer to take it to the dealership for major work and repairs rather than using aftermarket parts and going to other places. Yesterday, after only having her for a month, my vehicle wouldn't start and I was distraught. Since I work downtown, I had the choice of towing it to the Acura dealership near my office, or to this one in Morton Grove, which is closer to my home. I decided to try this one, so I called but got voicemail of Bob Sisk, who's the Service Director. I thought that was odd that I got him directly, yet I left a message and he called me back within 30 minutes. I described the problem and Bob told me what it could be. He said to tow it there and they would diagnose and get back to me soon. They absolutely did...much quicker than I expected. First I got a text, then my assigned service advisor was Andrew, who called and explained what was wrong...and what it would cost me. The price was much better than I was imagining from a dealership. Not much for labor at all! Andrew told me they would let me know when she was ready. Later in the day I got another text and a call from Andrew. He answered the questions I had about future servicing and met me when I arrived to get my car. They washed and vacuumed her and the porter even turned on the heat and seat warmers for me since today of all days the temperature decided to finally drop. Andrew walked me to the cashier and I was even offered coffee as I went to pay my bill. I was out in minutes and couldn't be happier. No issues at all. (They did mess up the date and time on my dash but I will read the book.) McGrath of Morton Grove has gained a customer!

OMG, we walked in the door and were immediately greeted by Jasmin! What a wonderful young woman who loves people and is engaging, warm, and friendly! After detailed explanations, patiently addressing our concerns and test driving this incredible car, we received the numbers from Elson, the Sales Manager! What a wonderful man. He, too, was warm, friendly, considerate, and respectful. We have never met a Sales Manager with those attributes. We have been to several car dealerships in the past couple of days and I would not say that they had a personality. Elson, is McGrath's angel and Jasmin is right next to him! My husband and I were treated like family. Aimee, the finance person was also warm and friendly. McGrath Acura in Morton Grove is the very Best! We LOVE our new car and our new friends at McGrath!!!!!!!!!!!!

They inspected the car, looked up my warranty and cleaned it. They were happy to help. I will definitely be returning.

Patrick O'Day is the backbone of McGrath Acura - Westmont. Patrick is a true treasure - a throwback to serious salesmen of my parents' generation. Patrick does everything humanly possible to make the deal happen and is honest with you if he can't. Patrick knows all the incentives out there and isn't afraid to use them to make the deal happen. In addition to Patrick, the support staff, which included Henry Rose (Deliver Specialist) and Wally Sanham (Finance Manager) were courteous, upfront and attentive throughout the whole car buying process. All of the staff exhibited exceptional courtesy and product knowledge, which was impressive. My overall impression of McGrath Acura - Westmont was 'impressive'. I would highly recommend this dealership to anyone looking for professionalism, courtesy and a great deal. I can't imagine finding a dealer that will treat me better than McGrath Acura - Westmont and I'm just not limiting my comparison to only Acura dealers. Thank you once again to the McGrath Acura - Westmont staff. You guys truly are the best!

Dan is a genuine good guy and someone that I would highly recommend to work with for all of your future car needs.

I am from Westmont and there is a McGrath here in my town upon going there I am sad and disappointed to say that their sales staff was second rate and substandard at best. As a result I made my way to Mcgrath of Morton Grove to see a few vehicles that I had looked at online. I set an appointment and came in Syed greeted me I soon found a vehicle, an Acura TLX ASPEC!! Amazing car!! After negotiations and a deal was made with the help of Rashad who is also an Acura ASPEC owner shook my hand upon the completion of the deal and said welcome to the club! I am more than happy and pleased with how Syed and Rashad and all of the staff were with taking their time to assure all my needs, concerns, and questions were met. They have already reached out to me and have let me know that they will help with anything in the future regarding my new Acura! They were very accommodating and I would recommend anyone to go there to purchase a car before anyone else! Especially if you're from Westmont! They separate boys from men in Morton Grove!! -Francis Piotrowski
