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

2017 Lexus RX Interior & Design 2017 Mercedes-Benz Interior Seating

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 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 .
