Well-known as top luxury car brands, both Acura and Lexus offer popular crossover SUV models in the 2019 Acura RDX and Lexus NX 300, but St. Louis drivers may be wondering which of these two should be at the top of their shopping list. The answer? The 2019 Acura RDX! Redesigned and restyled for the new model year, the Lexus NX 300 simply can’t compete with the RDX SUV’s standard luxury and performance features.
The Acura RDX Sets The Standard For SUVs In St. Louis
The differences between these two luxury SUVs are clear at first glance. The 2019 Acura RDX exudes excitement and has a more powerful stance with an increased wheelbase, 19-inch alloy wheels, and stylish Jewel Eye™ LED headlights while the Lexus NX 300 falls behind with 17-inch wheels and conventional LED headlights. In addition to its appealing exterior, the Acura RDX also performs better than its competitor and is more fun to drive thanks to its powerful 2.0L DOHC VTEC® Turbocharged 1-4 engine that delivers 272 horsepower, four unique driving models, and available Acura Super Handling All-wheel Drive™ that gives it more agility and control on the road.
The devil is certainly in the details when comparing Acura and Lexus’s crossover SUV models as what comes standard on the 2019 RDX is going to raise your Lexus NX 300 price by thousands. Every 2019 Acura RDX model includes a lush cabin complete with a 10.2-inch center display, panoramic moonroof, 12-way powered heated front sport seats for premium comfort, and class-leading rear cargo space including compartmented underfloor storage for all your gear. Lexus NX 300 drivers can expect to pay extra for these great amenities or will need to settle with its busy cockpit, complicated touchscreen display, and cramped seating. Of course St. Louis drivers can save even more when they shop at Frank Leta Acura and utilize our new Acura specials to drive off in this stylish luxury SUV.
Better than the Lexus NX 300 in a number of ways, the 2019 Acura RDX is a great choice, but don’t just take our word for it. Be sure to visit our showroom in St. Louis to schedule a test drive and experience the powerful RDX for yourself.
