Whose going to win?

For starters, the Acura RDX is able to offer a more spacious and well-designed cabin. The interior for the RDX is well done as it is finished with quality. The inside of the Lexus NX200t is smaller and the finish is not as good as the RDX.

Under the hood, the RDX runs on the 3.5L V6 naturally aspirated engine that can generate about 273hp and 251ft-lbs of torque. The setup allows the RDX to return up to 28mpg in fuel economy. The NX200t, on the other hand, runs on a 2L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that is packed with 235hp and 258ft-lbs of torque. The NX200t can return up to 28mpg in fuel economy.

It seems that both cars are on par on the performance front but we still have to side with the RDX in this contest. The SUV from Acura is simply better in every department and the V6 it runs on feels better than the 2L turbocharged engine.
Do you agree with the end result ? :eek:

I find the RDX to be a larger vehicle closer matched to a BMW X3. Pricing is closer matched to the NX and I find that the RDX is a very nice vehicle.
I do not like the heavy chrome grill and the dealer is too far away. I did look at the last version of the RDX and felt that it was too big and boxy. When it is time to replace the NX I will again look at a RDX and what ever else is available.
