2019 Acura RDX vs. 2018 Lexus RX 350

When entering the world of midsize luxury SUVs, there are many things to consider and review before making a purchase commitment. Is there enough cargo space? Can I truly fit 3 people in the backseat comfortably? What size wheels come standard? What kind of technology can I expect in both interior tech and drivetrain? Does it accelerate smoothly and quickly? What about its MPG rating? And more…

As a consumer, it’s always wise to check out the competition to see if they are pushing the envelope in aesthetics, engineering/design, safety, in cabin tech, comfort and driving experience. Today we will attempt to answer some of these questions through an analysis of the 2019 Acura RDX compared to the popular Lexus RX 350. You may already be an Acura loyalist, but allow us to take you out to the “Proving Grounds” to show you this match up against our Lexus counterpart.

Acura RDX Exterior Features Head to Head Against Lexus

View RDX Inventory

When it comes to the luxury class SUVs, today’s consumer expects beautifully sculpted lines and head-turning design with all the bells and whistles included. Lexus has done a nice job keeping to their expected design and includes a multitude of sharp lines and angles to exhibit an aggressive look.

Most recently, Lexus moved to lengthen and widen their grilles in a similar fashion like Audi to exist as a foundational design element that their models would be built around. Certainly not saying that it looks bad, it has its place.

In contrast, Acura has moved outside of their past RDX designs and has charted a complete overhaul with many surprise elements in the new 2019 design. the all-new Pentagon Grille is a striking new exterior element created by the Acura design team.

Much like the beautiful Jewel Eye LED headlights that were introduced years before which are still a foundational feature of the RDX, this new grille really pulls the front fascia together in a harmonious congregation of multi-directional micro-elements that truly give you a sense of movement.

When viewed from the front at an angle, your eyes will be carried all the way down the gorgeous character line that runs the entire length of the RDX and terminates at the beautiful led brake lights. Ever heard of love at first sight? That classic statement lives truly here.

Comparing Luxury Interiors of RDX to RX 350

View RDX Inventory
When it comes to comfort, the interior of any luxury vehicle should make you feel like you are sitting in a cloud – plenty of leg and headroom, a comfortable – supportive seat that envelops you from every angle and trimmed in the finest hand stitched leathers.

In addition, today’s interiors should be fitted with large led screens with easy to use navigation, intuitive interfaces, and seamless integration with our devices and associated media. Check out some of the highlighted features below in the table and check out the video tour of the interior.

INTERIOR FEATURES 2019 Acura RDX 2018 Lexus RX 350
Power Front Seats 12-Way (Both Driver & Passenger) 10-Way Driver / 8-Way Passenger
Center Display (in.) 10.2″ Display 12.3″ Display Available with Upgrade
Touch Pad Interface Standard – True Touchpad Positioning Available with Upgrade

The Lexus has a quiet, unassuming interior that falls in line with the expected luxury amenities. The interior is attractive but unfortunately lacks in standard features that the Acura has at its base level.

The RDX really shines in the interior category with their standard onboard tech, free-floating center console, standard 10.2″ dash display, incredible seating, cargo space, and so much more.

I found a car online on their lot. I went to check it out, loved what I saw. Very clean car looked new even-though it was two years old. Test drove it couldn't decide and they let me take it home to try out. Bought it the next day. Friendly staff, very helpful, environment was great and everyone was happy in the dealership, which made it a great experience for me. Thank You!!

Service was fast and the service rep was really courteous. I plan on continuing to use their service. I would recommend them to all fellow Acura owners.
