2015 Acura RDX vs. 2015 Lexus RX 350 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Acura RDX than in the Lexus RX 350. The Lexus RX 350 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Acura RDX, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Acura RDX as you will with the Lexus RX 350, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Clearly, the Acura RDX is a better financial choice over the Lexus RX 350, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Acura RDX and the Lexus RX 350 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Acura RDX is about the same width as the Lexus RX 350. The Acura RDX is slightly shorter than the Lexus RX 350, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Acura RDX and the Lexus RX 350 are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Acura RDX has the same turning radius as the Lexus RX 350, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Acura RDX will do just as well as the Lexus RX 350, since they have about the same towing capacity. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Acura RDX and the Lexus RX 350.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Acura RDX and the Lexus RX 350. The Acura RDX has significantly less cargo capacity than the Lexus RX 350.
