The 2019 Lexus RX and 2019 Acura RDX rival each other in the luxury market for mid-size crossover SUVs. Both models offer reliable all-weather handling, but the RX is more powerful and efficient. Available with a 12.3-inch infotainment system and Mark Levinson speakers, this Lexus offers better digital technology in the cockpit.

Capabilities

The 2019 Lexus RX runs on a 3.5 L engine block that pumps out 295 horsepower. Producing a maximum compression ratio of 11.8:1, this V6 powertrain has a peak torque rating of 268 pound-feet. The valvetrain includes the VVT-iW technology for efficient combustion. You can also tow a 3,500-pound trailer with this powerful Lexus crossover SUV. Having a peak output of 272 hp, the 2019 Acura RDX's 2.0 L turbocharged engine is noticeably weaker than the RX's six-cylinder engine. However, the turbo powertrain has several fuel-saving features, such as the Idle Stop and VTEC valvetrain. A hybrid powertrain is also available in the RX trims that carry the 450 badge. Engineered for economical cruising in cities, these efficient models offer a maximum of 308 hp.

Handling

Equipped with an all-new AWD system that has the Active Torque Control technology, the 2019 Lexus RX offers a stable ride on different surfaces. In the hybrid editions, a rear electric motor precisely controls the delivery of torque to the axles. Under normal conditions, all of the torque is sent only to the front wheels. When equipped with the Super Handling AWD, the 2019 Acura RDX also gets adequate traction on slippery roads. Linked to an electronic system with dial controls, the Drive Mode Select optimizes the RX according to your preferences. For example, you may choose the ECO Mode to optimize fuel economy on the highway or in the city. The Sport S/S+ Mode is tuned for rapid acceleration in low-traffic conditions. Additionally, the EV Driving Mode uses only battery power to propel the hybrid trims. You simply won't find as many custom driving settings in the 2019 RDX. However, this Acura crossover SUV has 10 ratios in the gearbox that includes the Sequential SportShift technology. Featuring eight gear speeds, the RX's Electronically Controlled Transmission offers sporty handling.

High-Tech Features

Having a class-leading design, the 2019 Lexus RX's 12.3-inch multimedia system offers the ultimate connectivity. You can view maps and other graphics simultaneously on the split-screen menu of this high-end infotainment display. From weather and traffic to news and entertainment, the Lexus Enform suite delivers an array of applications. You can also download the Lexus Drivers application on your mobile device for enhanced remote connectivity. The Remote Touch provides an alternative way to browse the options in the Enform hub. This premium Lexus model also boasts the Mark Levinson Surround Sound System with 15 speakers. Your favorite songs on SiriusXM Satellite Radio will be played in clear quality by this 835-watt audio system. The RDX's ELS Studio 3D sound system just doesn't match the acoustics of the cutting-edge Mark Levinson sound system.
