I think only features that are similar are similar vendors like indmar, boat mate, etc. However, the products from the vendors maybe different. I'm pretty sure this is the case with every boat made in Tennessee or even in the US.
The wedge is a feature on the malibu and axis.
As far as hull design goes, they are different. The MXZ is 2" wider. You could say that it is a tweaked version of the A22, VLX, LSV, or any other boat in Malibu's line,
Climb around both boats and you'll see the differences. Example, Malibu's tower speaker cans are built in house. Axis' aren't. Both are great buys and hold their values just as good if not better than any boat out there.
