2016 Lexus RX 450h vs. 2017 GMC Acadia Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the GMC Acadia than in the Lexus RX 450h, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Lexus RX 450h will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the GMC Acadia.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lexus RX 450h as you will with the GMC Acadia, 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). The Lexus RX 450h will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the GMC Acadia, which has a much lower 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 Lexus RX 450h and the GMC Acadia have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Lexus RX 450h is a little narrower than the GMC Acadia, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Lexus RX 450h takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the GMC Acadia.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Lexus RX 450h transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the GMC Acadia.

Handling
The Lexus RX 450h has a smaller turning radius than the GMC Acadia, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance

Utility
The Lexus RX 450h has less seating than the GMC Acadia, making the GMC Acadia the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Lexus RX 450h has significantly less cargo capacity than the GMC Acadia.
