When it’s time for Naperville drivers to buy a luxury SUV that’s perfect for taking the gang to the best places for Chicago sports fans, it makes sense to compare Acura’s SUVs and crossovers. If you decide the Acura RDX is a good fit but you want to shop around, compare it to the 2020 Lexus RX 350. McGrath Acura of Westmont has the details.

Performance: 2020 Lexus RX 350 vs. 2020 Acura RDX

Both cars feature powerful 3.5L V6 engines, but the Lexus has slightly more horsepower – 295 hp compared to the Acura’s 290 hp. The Acura RDX makes for a smoother ride, though, thanks to its 9-speed automatic transmission with sequential SportShift paddle shifters, compared to the Lexus RX 350’s 8-speed automatic electronically controlled transmission. The sequential SportShift paddle shifters give you more control over when to shift gears, similar to a manual transmission, but without the work of using a clutch for easy, more enjoyable driving from Elmhurst to Downers Grove.

Cargo: Acura RDX vs. Lexus RX 350

SUVs are all about intelligent use of space. The Acura beats the Lexus with more total cargo space: 58.9 cubic feet vs. 56.3 cubic feet. In addition the Acura includes a hidden under-storage compartment where you can stow more cargo safely out of sight.

Interior Features: Acura RDX vs. Lexus RX 350

Both crossover SUVs are well-loaded with luxury amenities you’d expect from Acura and Lexus. The Lexus has a standard 8-inch touchscreen that operates the car’s infotainment system. Acura goes a step further with the 8-inch On Demand Multi-Use Display™ touchscreen. Not only does it have all the features drivers love in an infotainment system, but it’s even safer and easier to operate thanks to the True Touchpad Interface conveniently located on the center console. The panoramic moonroof comes standard on the Acura RDX. Lexus RX 350 drivers will pay extra for their sky views.
