Powertrains: Acura RDX vs Lexus NX

2018 Acura RDX Speedy and Reliable PerformanceHowever, although the Acura SUV clearly outmatches the Lexus SUV in terms of its cabin room, that’s not the only reason that you would pick a crossover – you also want something that has some kick to it.

With Acura’s 3.5L i-VTEC®, you’ll be pleased to discover that its RDX has more than its share of kick.

  • 279 Horsepower
  • 19 city MPG, 27 highway MPG, 22 combined MPG1
  • All-Wheel Drive (AWD) with Intelligent Control System™
  • 6-Speed Automatic Transmission with Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters

That’s without even mentioning its Grade Logic Control function, which will help that 6-Speed Auto Trans to shift as smoothly and efficiently as possible while you’re on a hill, either declining or inclining.

Of course, you could always go with a Lexus vehicle like their NX crossover but be warned ahead of time that its standard engine only produces 235 horsepower, which is almost 50 horsepower less than Acura’s.

That’s exactly what the Acura RDX is doing: crafting a new definition of luxury. Between the stark illumination of Jewel Eye® LED headlights, the sumptuous interior 2-tone dashboard (with aluminum brushed trim, mind you), and body paints like Fathom Blue, Majestic Black, and Performance Red, you (and your crossover) will be the talk of the town. Now, if only there was somewhere for a test drive.
