Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Acura RDX is redesigned for 2019.The Technology package is the sweet spot for the 2019 RDX. In addition to this package's leather upholstery and premium audio, it adds navigation, parking sensors and additional driver assistance features. We recommend the all-wheel-drive variant for those drivers looking for improved handling and enhanced traction.

Pros
Sharp steering and handling
Roomy cabin and cargo area
Well-trimmed cabin

Cons
Options are bundled solely into packages
No choice of powertrain

By:

The first RDX to be entirely designed and constructed in the United States, the third-generation 2019 model is larger than the outgoing car in nearly every respect.

Pros
Content rich,
torque-vectoring agility of AWD model,
quiet interior.

Cons
Tight rear headroom,
10-speed needs a moment to think,
touchpad infotainment controls require familiarization.

The 2018 Lexus RX 350 ranked #9 in Luxury Midsize SUVs. Currently the Lexus RX 350 has a score of 8.5 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 33 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Coddling ride
Many standard and available features

Cons
Low safety scores for class
Less cargo room than rivals

By: 
usnews.com

The RX 350 is available in just two versions, and we think it's worth spending a bit more and upgrading to the F Sport trim. The F Sport, despite its name, isn't as sporty as some vehicles in the class such as the Porsche Macan, but it does bundle several desirable options together, including the adaptive suspension dampers and heated and ventilated front seats. The F Sport also gives the RX a more aggressive look and 20-inch wheels as standard.

PROS
Attractive cabin with top-quality materials and construction
Ride quality makes almost any road feel smooth
Advanced safety features come standard
Wide cargo bay makes it easy to load luggage and groceries

CONS
Less overall cargo capacity than competitors
Optional tech interface is distracting to use while driving

By:

The Lexus RX makes a style-conscious statement like never before, and it hasn’t lost its grip on good manners.

Pros
Bracing design
Swift acceleration
Broad range of road manners
Hybrid's high gas mileage
High-tech safety standard

Cons
That polarizing sheet metal
Gets expensive in a hurry
Firm F Sport ride
Gas-only mileage just average
