Have you been craving a punchy and fun to drive SUV? St. Louis drivers will be pleased when they slide behind the wheel of the 2019 Acura RDX. Besides offering incredible amenities and a turbocharged experience, the RDX surpasses the Lexus RX in a number of ways.
The Acura RDX Crushes The Competition in St. Louis
No matter your expectations the 2019 Acura RDX is sure to exceed them. Powered by a 2.0L DOHC VTEC® Turbocharged I-4 engine, the RDX can pump out a surprising amount of horsepower, 272 to be exact, and delivers 280 lbs.-ft of torque. The Lexus RX does have more power but less torque which means it’s slower on the uptake and lacks the racing spirit that’s built-in to the 2019 RDX.
The RDX has recently been redesigned and restyled with an increased wheelbase that provides drivers not only with a more comfortable ride but also more interior space. All five passengers will have plenty of room to stretch out and enjoy the first-class cabin that comes outfitted with standard luxuries including heated front seats, Apple CarPlay™ integration, a panoramic moonroof, and underfloor cargo space. The 2019 Lexus RX offers similar convenient features but you’ll need to pay extra to enjoy them.
When it comes to technology and safety, the 2019 Acura RDX doesn’t make any sacrifices. The RDX features the industry’s most intuitive audio and information control system with the True Touchpad Interface™ and 10.2-inch display screen, and even comes loaded with standard safety and driver-assisted technologies. The Lexus RX model is missing a road departure mitigation system and its Touch Control System is neither intuitive or standard.
Perhaps the most enticing of all is the price point. The 2019 Acura RDX has an MSRP starting at $39,400 while the Lexus RX averages around $45,070, not to mention the long list of luxury amenities you’ll have to pay extra for.
