The 2015 Lexus RX Features Don’t Compare

May 14th, 2014 by

Drivers looking for a family luxury vehicle in the greater Chicago area, we know that the features of the 2015 Lexus RX may have you intrigued, but we think you can do better. Have you seen the 2015 Acura RDX? Available now at Chicagoland Acura Dealers, the latest RDX combines the versatility of an SUV with the fuel efficiency of a small crossover, giving you the best of both worlds.

Let’s see how the Lexus compares.

Features Make the Difference

While some drivers might think that there’s not much that separates two luxury crossovers, that couldn’t be further from the truth. The new RDX is well-equipped from the get go, giving Chicagoans access to some of the best in modern amenities and luxuries without needing to upgrade.

Here are just some of the RDX’s standard features:

  • Memory adjustments for driver settings
  • Power moonroof
  • Rearview camera
  • Front heated seating
  • Paddle shifters

If any of those features sound appealing to you, we have news for you: none of them are found on the basic Lexus RX. You may be able to upgrade for a few, but features like paddle shifters simply don’t come on the RX.

If that’s not enough, the RDX also tops the Lexus in fuel economy. The 2015 RDX 6-Spd AT earns an EPA-estimated 28 mpg on the highway* while the Lexus RX only manages a 25 highway mpg fuel rating.

It seems like an open and shut case to us, but in the end, this is your luxury crossover, and you have to decide for yourself.
