Which MDX - Same mileage and price but different year and package

I live in San Diego and trying to decide between 2 MDX's:
1. 2014 certified pre-owned MDX with Tech package, 37K miles, Exterior color grey, FWD, leased with 1 owner, priced around $35k
2. 2016 base model MDX, 34K miles, Exterior color Graphite Luster Metallic, FWD, 2 owners (corporate fleet and personal), priced around $34K, through a BMW dealership.

The 2014 has the longer warranty since it's certified pre-owned and it has the Tech pacakage, but the 2016 is newer. I'm leaning towards the 2014. Is that the better choice?

    Kind of a coin toss eh?

    When these kinds of questions come up I tend toward the newer model "just because". The 2014 CPO's warranty would offer a lot of peace of mind though and a one year old car with two owners raises questions too. Like, why is it being dumped so young?

    Basically they are the same car. The MDX is getting a face lift for 2017. The only downside I see to the 2014 is if you try to resell it in the near future, you'll have a 3 year old car's depreciation to deal with.

    Sounds like the 2014 would be a good choice for the long-haul buyer but the 2016 for the one who tends to change cars quickly.

    one more factor to consider, the 2014 has the traditional 6spd stick shifter, 2016 has the new 9spd push button. this 9spd is a love or hate affair, a lot likes it and gotten used to it in a couple of weeks, but there's also a lot that hated it.

    if you plan to drive it for the next few years, i'd say the CPO 2014 is a better choice with the added warranty.
