In its current form, the Acura MDX does not have it for a very long time. A new version is expected in the next year. Reliable and versatile, the MDX struggles to stand comparison against the Aviator in embedded technologies, modernism or luxury. Less rewarding than the Aviator, the MDX is also more noisy and less well suspended.

This utility, whose output coincides with that of the Aviator, is based on an architecture common to other products of the American group (Cadillac XT5, Chevrolet Blazer, GMC Acadia). A guarantee of reliability compared to the Aviator, designed from a blank sheet. Although less powerful (V6 310 horsepower), the Cadillac is lighter and a bit more agile to drive. He can not, however, pull a load as heavy as the Aviator (1814 kg compared to 3039 kg).

Certainly a safe value (reliability and residual value), the RX-L still struggles to support comparison against the Aviator in several areas. The interior of the Japanese is narrower, less functional and less user-friendly (infotainment system) than the Lincoln. In addition, in terms of driving, the Lexus provides a muffled but uncompromising experience. In comparison, the Aviator appears more stable, more reassuring (shorter braking distance) and faster.
