Serving Ridgeland, MS

Over the past few decades, SUV’s have become more acceptable as daily use cars, unlike in the past where they were most commonly used in the countryside and for off-roading purposes. With the emerging acceptance, many manufactures have been designing SUVs that are more elegant, spacious, and comfortable and more fuel-efficient for use on the open road and cities today.

In the market today, you might be spoilt for choice when shopping for a new car, this is why we at the dealership have taken it upon ourselves to help you find an SUV that fits your personality and services your needs without having to dent your bank account. The Acura MDX and the Honda Pilot have both build a reputation for themselves as affordable 3-row luxury crossover SUVs designed to fit you and your family’s lifestyle needs. The Acura MDX boasts more spacious and luxurious interior and smart tech features that give it an edge over the 2020 Honda Pilot.


The base MDX trim comes with a powerful 3.5 Liter V6 engine that puts out up to 290 horsepower, taking the car from 0-60 in just 6.8 seconds. The Honda Pilot is also powered by a 3.5 Liter V6 that’s linked to a 6-speed automatic transmission, producing 280 horsepower.

The MDX offers the available Active Damper System and Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) that maximizes the SUV’s handling and stability on the road. If you are looking to get more power out of the MDX, the Sport Hybrid trim is the perfect option; it comes with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission with paddle shifters and a 3-Motor sport Hybrid power train that allows the car to put out 321 horsepower quickly.
