Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Acura RDX than in the Lexus RX 350, due to its greater head- and legroom.

Cost

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