2020 Lexus NX 300 vs 2020 Acura RDX

Serving Westmont, IL

Westmont drivers who are eager to drive home in a smaller luxury SUV understandably turn their attention to models produced by leading auto manufacturers. The Lexus NX 300 has been available for several years, and the 2020 model boasts modern appeal and desired technologies. The Acura line may also catch your eye. The 2020 Acura RDX is priced slightly above the NX 300, and it is also a compact luxury crossover SUV. As you continue to compare the NX 300 to the RDX, you will see that this is only one of many differences that SUV shoppers need to be aware of.


The 2020 Lexus NX 300 has a sharp, aerodynamic profile that gives it an immediate appeal. The smooth hood swoops boldly into the grille with tapered, crisp accents. The hourglass grille has horizontal bars that escalate dramatically upward. The turning signals, LED lights, and foglamp portals have sharp designs that highlight the center of the hourglass shape. The roof has modest curvature, and the sides are well-designed with a modern edge. In comparison, the 2020 Acura RDX's hood descends slowly into the grille. The pentagon-shaped grille rounds into the headlights, and this area sits over a segmented air vent. Compared to the NX 300, its wheel fenders are flatter.


Inside, the Lexus NX 300 has a smooth, contemporary feel with high-quality materials like leather and aluminum throughout. Both the center console and center stack have flat and angled sections, and this provides easy access to the mounted features. Some of its features are a 10.3-inch color screen, a navigation system, a heated steering wheel, smart device integration, a panoramic and powered sunroof, a Mark Levinson premium sound system, a wireless Internet hotspot, a digital instrumentation panel, and other items. The Acura RDX for 2020 has a thick center console that angles directly into the center stack. The RDX's features may include ambient lighting, a floating display screen, an electronic gear selector, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, smart device connectivity, and a few other items.


Lexus and Acura have outfitted their SUVs with several advanced safety features. The 2020 NX 300 is loaded with gear like road sign detection, a panoramic view monitor with reverse guidelines, intuitive parking assistance, a rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring, an advanced braking system, and other items. The Acura RDX for 2020 includes road departure mitigation, advanced cruise control, airbags, a multi-view camera, and several additional items.
