You also need a crossover that can accommodate more passengers and cargo on all your trips. The 2023 Acura MDX has a cabin that measures up to 139.1 cubic feet and seats up to seven passengers. You’ll find the same maximum seating offered in the 2023 BMW X5, but the MDX takes the lead once again with more storage space. In the MDX, you can take advantage of up to 95.0 cubic feet of cargo space compared to only 72.3 cubic feet of cargo room available in the BMW X5, so you may have to leave a couple things behind.
