Audi Q7: Pricing for the 2013 Q7 starts around $46,000. The base Q7 is not as powerful as the MDX, but the Q7 does come standard with Audi's celebrated Quattro all-wheel-drive, one of the best systems on the market today.
BMW X5: Starting at $47,500, the X5 carries one of the most expensive base sticker prices in this category. Yet the X5 remains one of the top sellers in the segment. With an 8-speed automatic transmission and a smaller engine, the base X5 xDrive35i gets 16 mpg city and 23 mpg highway, better than the MDX. The diesel-powered X5 xDrive35d gets 19/26 mpg.
Volvo XC90: Volvo's big luxury SUV starts at $39,500, but you'll have to fork over an extra $2,000 for optional all-wheel drive. If you don't need the added traction, save the money and stick with the more fuel-efficient front-wheel drive version.
Acura offers many wonderful options on the MDX, but these packages can quickly cause the sticker price to skyrocket, turning a $43,000 SUV into a $53,000 SUV. You'll be just as happy - and save a lot - if you stick with the base model
