Although BMW was technically the first brand to offer a compact luxury SUV in America, Acura and Lexus continue to be the top sellers in the segment. For 2019, Acura hopes to steal the sales crown from the Lexus NX with a completely re-engineered RDX. Lexus fights back with significant updates to the NX for 2017. Both of these small crossover cost a hair under $50,000 but which one is the better buy?

      I drove a RX350 for several years and just bought a 2020 Acura RDX. The new RX350 is one UGLY car. That grill is horrible looking and definitely one of several reasons I didn't return to Lexus when buying. Very excited about my new Acura!! It's my 4th one!!

      Great review as always! You are among the top out here. I just purchased a 2019 NX 300 F Sport. It's an awesome SUV! The Acura is a very nice looking vehicle, but with the Lexus ranking so high for dependability and resale value for the F Sport, I chose it. $47,000.00 minus incentives, GREAT value. I have NO issues using the track pad for the infotainment system. To each is own, I guess.

      Redline Reviews, I wish you'd do any update review of both of these vehicles for these same 2020 Models. I'm looking at both of these vehicles.

      I agree on the infotainment center. Lexus really shafted us with this horrible system. It makes me beyond angry and not willing to get another Lexus. Plus my NX F Sport has been stripped of lots of standard equipment like automatic wipers.

      2018,2019 and 2020 no Android Auto and even Lexus. Are these car companies nutts? 50 K just so you can use you phone screen to navigate
      Both are bad for a Luxury car. and to be honest both are junk as far as the touch pad. . They need to be designed with minimal driving distractions.

      I got the Acura RDX A-Spec in Apex Blue Pearl. Super attractive car! Definitely a head-turner! But overall, the ride, handling and power is simply amazing! The surround sound stereo system also was huge for me because I love to play my music all the time and crank the volume and it sounds incredible! I think Acura did an amazing job with the RDX!!

      13:00 no the Acura dealer cannot add Android software, even now. It is just Apple friendly. The Advance trim is not “ a couple thousand dollars” it is $4,900. Good review though. Watch out for price increases since this was filmed.

      Realistically, the rx350 f sport is the competition from Lexus.. though that's about 12k more expensive for the non f.. 8k more.

      Both Acura and Alexus need to step it up. The Korean manufacturers have stepped up considerably. The Lexus IS disappointing. The interior looks OLD

      Being a Lexus loyalist and have driven both of these cars extensively I would say Lexus has a lot of work to do. I’m definitely switching out of Lexus and into something else. The RDX is one of the cars and I’m looking at. Definitely won’t be buying another Lexus for my next car and if Lexus doesn’t step up their game they will lose me for the one after that too.
