Hybrid gasoline-electric technology hasn’t really taken deep root in the three-row crossover class, but two of the current leaders are the 2019 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid and the 2019 Toyota Highlander Hybrid.
The Highlander Hybrid was one of the pioneers, first arriving as a 2006 model. Now in its third generation of production, the Toyota Highlander Hybrid soldiers on, happily reaching a new sales landmark last year. The MDX has been around since 2001, a luxury three-row crossover that shares a platform with the Honda Pilot. The Acura MDX Sport Hybrid joined the third-generation MDX lineup as a 2017 model.
The question today is which is best, the Acura MDX Sport Hybrid or the Toyota Highlander Hybrid?
