Opinions differ but I don’t see a loaded non-luxury car being really comparable to a base model luxury car (or whatever Acura is - im not bashing Acura I lease an MDX myself). The luxury car will usually have a better engine, better suspension, maybe more comfortable seats, better AWD in this case - basically better bones.
But you will not get the same features. You give up things like ventilated seats, a HUD, parking sensors, surround view camera, heated seats in this case, etc… So it depends what you value more.
I lease an MDX with tech package and wanted the better seats, good AWD and driving dynamics for family highway cruiser. But also own a 1.5 Accord touring. Family needs two cars and Accord is my city car. For that car I chose features (HUD, ventilated seats, parking sensors, wireless charging) over a base luxury car with a much better engine but fewer features. All depends on preference.
