The market is filled with opposing SUVs this model year as the consumer demand for them grows. Automakers are fighting to outdo one another and that is certainly true for Acura and Lexus, two fierce competitiors. While the freshly redesigned 2020 Lexus RX350 offers some nice changes from the previous generation, the 2020 Acura RDX nails it on technology, steering and handling, and the incredible performance.

Available Technology

The 2020 Lexus RX350 finally adds Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to its mix of standard tech features this year, but it still falls behind what you get on the 2020 Acura RDX. The RDX comes with a stunning new 10.2-inch HD dual-content center display with a connected True Touchpad Interface that allows drivers to interact with the display without having their attention stolen from the road. The ELS Studio 3D Premium Sound System is truly state-of-the-art, pumping out concert-like sound quality in the advanced RDX packages. The Acura also offers In-Car Delivery by Amazon to have your packages safely and securely delivered straight to your car.

Steering and Handling

The 2020 Acura RDX excels at steering and handling. Bodily adjustments and shifts are minimal while coursing and maneuvering through turns and everyday traffic conditions with this exceptional SUV. Getting the optional SH-AWD system makes powering out of turns even sportier on the RDX. Offering a 4-Mode Integrated Dynamics System (IDS), the RDX gives you an array of different driving options. These four options are: SNOW – which is ideal for maintaining traction and control on challenging surfaces, COMFORT – the “Just Right” mix of comfort and handling, SPORT – where power steering assist is reduced to increase steering feel and feedback, and SPORT+ – which adds a more aggressive, and fun, shifting algorithm. The 2020 Lexus RX350 has four driving modes options including: Eco, Normal, Sport, and Sport+.

Engine and Performance

The 2020 RDX showcases a 10-speed automatic transmission delivering great fuel efficiency with 22 city, 28 highway, and 23 combined mpg. The Acura RDX comes in either Front-Wheel Drive (FWD) or Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD). In contrast, The Lexus RX350 has an 8-speed automatic transmission that has a lower fuel-efficiency rating of 20 city, 27 highway, and 23 combined mpg. The Lexus RX350 is offered with choice of four different drivetrains: FWD, AWD, Sport FWD, and Sport AWD.
