2019 Lexus NX vs 2019 Acura RDX

Sport Utility Vehicles are incredibly popular for their capability, usefulness and in many cases their luxury. Two of the better high-end Sport Utility Vehicles are additionally some of the smaller sized ones: the 2019 Lexus NX and the 2019 Acura RDX. The Lexus NX was introduced as a ’15 designation and because of its popularity has continued to be essentially untouched since then. The Acura RDX was announced as a 2007 version and recently announced a brand new version for 2019. An all-new RDX vs. an unmodified NX does not appear like much of a reasonable match up, yet considering that the NX has been outselling the RDX for several years, possibly not. Let’s consider both Sport Utility Vehicles and see what makes them so engaging.

2019 lexus nx vs acura rdx comparison


While Lexus concentrates on opulence, Acura often tends to shade in the direction of performance, so this segment should go to the Acura and it does. Both Sport Utility Vehicles feature a 2.0 L Turbo Inline 4-cylinder that averages the very same MPG, yet the Acura has virtually 40 extra horse power. The Lexus has a six speed automatic while the Acura counters with a 10-speed transmission. In automobiles that are approximately the same size and weight that extra 40 horsepower makes a mark. The one variation is that the NX can be acquired as a hybrid while the RDX can’t. So, if power is what you want the RDX is your choice. If you desire strong gas mileage in a 2-row Sport Utility Vehicle then the NX triumphs.


Style is subjective, specifically when both vehicles draw heavily from the larger SUVs in their corresponding stables. There is no misinterpreting either SUV for anything else, they are clearly a Lexus and an Acura and both are exceptionally eye-catching automobiles. The interior cabins are treated in a different way on these SUVs, however. The ’19 Lexus NX includes a standard gear shifter and a conventional layout while the all-new RDX includes push button drive selectors on a panel that seems to be arching out of control panel. It’s certainly a special look, however, it does not actually work. The Lexus interior is the most inviting and lavish.


In an area that is hotly disputed, it is not unexpected that both vehicles share some standard technology. Both cars have Apple CarPlay, Wi-Fi capability, Push Button Start, and Premium Sound Systems. The RDX features a Panoramic Sunroof and Jewel Eye LED Headlights as the standard technology. The NX begins with Amazon Alexa compatibility, Power Folding Outside Mirrors, Roof Rails, and Subscription-free Traffic and Weather updates by means of HD Radio. Add in unique choices like Touch-Free Power Rear Door, Complimentary Maintenance, stronger towing capacity, and lower cost and it makes the new Acura NX a tough act to defeat.
