2017 LEXUS RX vs. 2017 Acura MDX | Call us at 954.972.2200
Which vehicle is right for you? The 2017 Lexus RX or the 2017 Lexus Acura MDX, both great luxury mid-size SUV’s that will provide safety, technology and a smooth ride. If you are familiar with past models, you may noticed an improved redesign on the 2017 Lexus RX that provides a much higher quality for your driving experience.
Interior & Design
The RX has always been known for its premium interior materials, such as soft, comfortable leather seats and luxurious trim. The 2017 RX adds a new dimension of comfort as its extra 5 inches of length adds a surprising amount of extra room in both the front and back seats. The interior of the 2017 MDX is also built with premium materials, though not quite as high-quality as the RX. The MDX offers an available third row of seating, something lacking in the RX, but this added convenience makes the MDX feel a bit more cramped for its front-seat passengers. Both the RX and MDX offer infotainment systems with 8-inch display screens and all the features you’d expect in 2017. The RX offers significantly higher quality sound with its nine-speaker audio system than the Acura’s system with eight speakers.
Technology & Safety
The all new redesigned 2017 Lexus RX350 comes with an optional 12.3 inch infotainment display screen, a 12-speaker Pioneer audio system, a 15-speaker Mark Levinson surround-sound system, pre-collision warning, lane departure alert, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, panoramic view monitor, front and rear parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert and navigation with Lexus’ Remote Touch system.
The 2017 MDX offers a single engine choice – a 290-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 – and a standard nine-speed automatic transmission. The 2017 RX has an eight-speed automatic transmission, but gives drivers two engine options with its standard 295-horsepower 3.5-liter direct injection V6 on base models or a 308-horsepower 3.5-liter hybrid V6 on the RX 450h. Both models of the RX and MDX offer solid fuel economy .
With a striking, chiseled body, an advanced 3.5-liter V6 and a stunning interior, the 2017 Lexus RX brings style into sharp focus for you while on the road. The 2017 Lexus RX and 2017 Acura MDX both are quality vehicles, but the fearless 2017 RX, with its leading-edge technology and safety features makes it the best choice to drive “aggressive luxury”.
