2020 Acura MDX vs. Lexus RX


Whether you’re carting your family to the beach or heading to work solo, you want a vehicle like the 2020 Acura MDX or the Lexus RX that can keep you comfortable and entertained. While you could get that in either SUV, one may work better for your lifestyle near Egg Harbor, Atlantic City, and Vineland, NJ.

We’ll help you find your ideal match in this 2020 Acura MDX vs. Lexus RX comparison. Discover the similarities and differences between these midsize luxury SUVs, and feel free to contact Boardwalk Acura if you have any questions.

Acura MDX Performance

MDX vs RX Passenger & Cargo Room

The 2020 Acura MDX and Lexus RX are midsize SUVs, which means you’ll have plenty of room for both people and belongings. However, the MDX gives you more space in both of those categories.

Three rows of seats for seven people comes standard in the MDX, and it has 132.7 cubic feet of passenger volume. Meanwhile, the RX provides three rows as an option only. Plus, in its standard configuration with two rows, you’ll get just 99.8 cubic feet of passenger volume.

As far as cargo room goes, the Acura offers more in that department, too. You’ll get up to 90.9 cubic feet, which is ideal for grocery bags, beach gear, and more. Plus, with 60/40 and 50/50 split-folding second- and third-row seats, you can easily fit as many people and items into the MDX as needed.

The Lexus has 60/40 split-folding rear seats as well. Unfortunately, its maximum cargo room is just 56.3 cubic feet, and as a result, you may not be able to pack in as many items as you could in the MDX.

Acura MDX Interior

Amenities Inside the Acura vs Lexus

Whether you opt for the 2020 MDX or RX, you’ll get a vehicle that’s filled with features to keep everyone happy.

These available features include:

  • Ventilated front seats
  • Heated second-row outboard seats
  • Heated steering wheel

You’ll also find heated front seats standard in the Acura. To get them in the Lexus, you’ll need to add them as a separate option.

Another amenity that comes standard in the MDX is tri-zone automatic climate control. With this feature, you, your co-pilot, and the backseat passengers can each adjust the cabin temperature, so no one remains too hot or too cold on any ride—everyone stays comfortable. Like the heated front seats, the comparable 3-zone climate control is only available in the RX on a higher trim level.

Acura MDX Interior Technology

Cutting-Edge Technologies

In either vehicle, you’ll find technologies that’ll help keep you connected and entertained. This includes features like the available HD Radio® and standard SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, which you’ll find in the Acura, and which give you hundreds of additional stations to listen to.

Look at the dashboard displays in the Acura MDX and you’ll never lose sight of both your audio and climate controls with the On Demand Multi-Use Display™ (ODMD™) 2.0, which you can view simultaneously. If you want to see your audio and climate settings at the same time in the Lexus RX, you need to upgrade to the split-screen multimedia display.

Furthermore, the MDX offers an Acura Rear Entertainment System. With it comes either a 9- or 16.2-inch screen that’s lowered from an overhead console. With the latter screen, you can watch one movie on a wide view or two separate movies at once, keeping everyone in the back happy.

2020 Acura MDX vs Lexus RX: The Verdict

While the 2020 Lexus RX is an impressive vehicle, the 2020 Acura MDX came out on top in every category we covered. If you want to experience this midsize SUV for yourself near Egg Harbor, Atlantic City, and Vineland, New Jersey, don’t wait—schedule a test drive at Boardwalk Acura today!
