The 2015 Lexus RX MPG Falls Short

May 14th, 2014 by

When you want a dependable, affordable, and versatile family vehicle in the Chicagoland area, you have quite a few choices available to you. The 2015 Lexus RX might sound appealing, especially for drivers looking to get the most mpg for their money. But if fuel efficiency is important to you, we suggest you take a look elsewhere: the 2015 Acura RDX.

Acura’s Fuel-Efficient Crossover

One of the best parts about the RDX is that it’s not only well-equipped and stylish, but it saves on fuel too. Acura’s engineering has made it possible for drivers to get a vehicle with the versatility of a full-size SUV and the fuel economy of a family sedan.

The 2015 RDX 6-Spd AT earns an EPA-estimated 28 mpg on the highway and 20 mpg in the city.* While the Lexus RX’s mpg ratings aren’t bad, they come up short: 25 highway mpg and 18 city mpg.

That’s not the only place where the RDX comes out ahead, either; far from it.

Plenty of Standard Features

Acura has made a name for themselves by giving drivers affordable luxury vehicles for years, and the RDX is no different. While the Lexus brand carries luxury-level pricing, you might be surprised to find out that there are features on the RDX that you simply won’t find on the basic Lexus RX, including:

  • Power moonroof
  • Rearview camera
  • Speed-sensing wipers
  • Driver-adjustable seat height
  • Front heated seating
  • Paddle shifters

Although Lexus does make many of these features available to drivers, they require upgrades to be put on par with the RDX. We think you should be able to get what you want in a luxury crossover without the need to upgrade; don’t you?
