From my SUV hunt, I eliminated BMW X5 (too many friends got lemons or service problems)& Porsche (best looking but poor dealer attitude with too limited warranty for a fuzzy car):
Benz ML 350 vs Acura MDX Technology
1. Benz drives with a more solid & safe feel
2. Benz has a much better exterior front nose.
3. Surprisingly Benz holds better resale value when I checked from year to year going back to 2000. Plus I bought my premium 2007 Benz for much less than the MDX Technology
4. Better voice activated Navigation & traffic report in MDX
5. Much better looking gauges in MDX.
6. Bigger & roomier interior in MDX
I would have bought the MDX if I could tolerate the funky looking front nose from the side and from the front. Driving the Infinity FX35 actually gave me a german car feel- much better than the MDX, but the FX appearance and blind spots are even worse than the MDX.

It all depends on how you define "better" - what are your most important criteria?

My suggestion would be to first do some research (you can start here) on each of the vehicles that you are attracted to. Read some reviews, do side-by-side comparisons to narrow it down to 2 or 3. Then go out and test drive those on a variety of roads, and get a feel for the dealers and what kind of pricing is available in your area. Do not "fall in love" and buy until you have driven all of the models that you are interested in.
By the way, the BMW and the Lexus are not alike and appeal to different target audiences. You need to figure out which one you fall into.

Has anyone shopped the MB M-Class in relation to the MDX? What did you find notably different between the two? In your opinion, which would you prefer?
I am looking at both vehicles right now, and wanted to see if other shoppers/buyers compared these two vehicles in their research.

Hi. I am trying to make a final decision and having a hard time.
I have two kids so interior room is HUGE factor to me so the Lexus appears too small, is that what the rest of you think?
I love the ride and feel and gadgets on the MDX, but I think the BMW looks better outside.
The Mercedes is actually the LEAST expensive of them all I have found, can you believe it. I will be LEASING and they are running a Lease special for $525 a month so it's $125 less a month than the MDX so it's hard to decide.

I will also have the same dilemma when I plan to buy this year end, waiting for 2010 RX.
