My point stands. Unless a driver has actually test-driven both vehicles, comments about the superiority of one over the other are just speculation based on prior experience with (presumably) only a previous generation MDX. With respect to torque vectoring, which is used by SH-AWD because of its front drive bias, my understanding is that the parallel process in a rear-wheel drive car (like the GV80) is handled via its limited slip differential and electronic stability program, so in my mind, that's a wash. To repeat: given that all vehicles have strengths and weaknesses, it's premature to promote on brand over another (even on an MDX forum) until a customer actually drives each vehicle and decides what "strengths" are most important to him or her.I can say I would know directly but I think air suspension is more for comfort than anything else. The torque vectoring SH-AWD would be the key to putting the MDX on top of the GV80. Whether in the base MDX or the Type S the SH-AWD should be better than the GV80. I just think as with most cars they all have their strengths and weaknesses. The MDX Type S with the 355 horsepower engine should be able to compete and in most cases top the entry level offerings from BMW Mercedes and Audi but of course not compete with the super car variants of the Germans. I think Acura is being shrewd with the MDX. I won’t be as luxurious perhaps as the GV80 but it should be able to outperform it and be a niche vehicle between the Germans and the GV80.
