2019 Lexus NX vs 2019 Acura RDX

SUVs are exceptionally in vogue for their capability, usefulness and sometimes their opulence. Two of the swankier luxury SUVs are additionally some of the smaller sized ones: the 2019 Lexus NX and the 2019 Acura RDX. The Lexus NX was introduced as a 2015 designation and due to its appeal has remained practically untouched since then. The Acura RDX was introduced as a 2007 model and recently introduced an all-new version for ’19. A brand new RDX vs. an unchanged NX does not feel like much of a reasonable comparison, yet taking into consideration that the NX has actually been outselling the RDX for many years, possibly not. Let’s take a look at both Sport Utility Vehicles and see what makes each one so fascinating.

 lexus nx vs acura rdx 2019 comparison


While Lexus concentrates on a high end feel, Acura tends to lean in the direction of sportiness, so this category ought to go to Acura and it does. Both SUVs feature a 2.0 L Turbocharged Inline 4-cylinder engine that averages the exact same Miles Per Gallon, yet the Acura has nearly 40 additional horsepower. The Lexus has a 6-speed automatic while the Acura counters with a 10-speed system. In cars that are roughly the same size and weight that added 40 horse power makes a mark. The one variation is that the NX can be purchased as a hybrid while the RDX can’t. So, if power is what you want the RDX is your option. If you desire solid fuel efficiency in a two row Sport Utility Vehicle then the NX triumphs.


Design is subjective, particularly when both Sport Utility Vehicles borrow greatly from the larger Sport Utility Vehicles in their respective stables. There is no mistaking either Sport Utility Vehicle for anything else, they are plainly a Lexus and an Acura and both are extremely attractive cars. The interior cabins are dealt with in a different way on these SUVs, however. The new Lexus NX includes a traditional gear shifter and a typical look while the 2019 Acura RDX includes push button drive selectors on a panel that appears to be curving out of control panel. It’s certainly a special appearance, yet it doesn’t really look the best. The Lexus interior cabin is the most welcoming and luxurious.


In an area that is hotly contested, it is not surprising that both Sport Utility Vehicles share some conventional equipment. Both cars provide Push Button Start, Premium Sound Systems, Apple CarPlay, and Wi-Fi capability. The RDX includes Jewel Eye LED Headlights and a Panoramic Sunroof as standard features. The NX starts with Amazon Alexa compatibility, Power Folding Outside Mirrors, Roof Rails, and Subscription-free Traffic and Weather updates by means of HD Radio. Include one-of-a-kind choices like Complimentary Maintenance services, stronger towing capability, Touch-Free Power Rear Door, and lower cost and it makes the 2019 NX a tough act to beat.
