2019 RLX vs 2019 GS Performance Specs

The 2019 Acura RLX and 2019 Lexus GS boast versatile engineering, allowing you to focus on performance, efficiency, or a mix of the two.

The RLX is a great example of this, as it’s a sporty hybrid. In fact, when you combine the standard 3.5L i-VTEC® V6 engine and 3-Motor Hybrid System, you can get up to 377 horsepower. Plus, the vehicle achieves an EPA-estimated 28 city/29 highway MPG,* which allows you to drive farther for longer.

Meanwhile, the GS isn’t a hybrid, and it achieves just an EPA-estimated 22 city MPG. With its standard 2.0L 4-cylinder engine, it’s also not as powerful, producing just 241 horsepower. Unfortunately, its available 3.5L V6 engine isn’t as strong as the one in the Acura model, delivering only 311 horsepower.

Finally, both vehicles are available in all-wheel drive, helping you stay in control on even the slickest road surfaces.

Acura RLX vs Lexus GS Interior Features

Acura RLX interiorSince the 2019 RLX and 2019 GS are luxury automobiles, you can expect them to each have sophisticated interiors. They certainly deliver, offering high-quality materials like premium leather along with wood-grain and metallic finishes.

Each vehicle is quite spacious for the driver and passengers alike. This is especially the case in the Acura RLX, as it offers 38.8 inches of rear legroom and 102.1 cubic feet of total passenger volume. While spacious, the Lexus GS falls a bit short, offering 36.8 inches of rear legroom and 99 cubic feet of passenger volume.

Both vehicles offer plenty of amenities, such as heated/ventilated front seats and heated steering wheels. However, the RLX also has heated rear outboard seats. With these, everyone on board can get cozy on especially cold nights.

RLX vs GS Technologies

The Acura RLX and Lexus GS have a lot of high-tech features, allowing you to stay connected and entertained throughout every commute. For example, they both come standard with Bluetooth® technology and SiriusXM® Satellite Radio. The latter gives you over 100 channels of music, sports, news, and comedy, so you can always discover a new song or show on your way to work.

They also each offer a navigation system with voice guidance and real-time traffic updates, so you can get from Point A to Point B easily. Plus, everything will be heard clearly in the RLX through its standard 14-speaker Krell® Audio System. Your audio may come in a bit crisper through the speakers of the Acura as opposed to the Lexus, though—the GS only comes standard with a 12-speaker sound system.
