Which Is Better: Lexus RX 350 or Acura MDX?
With only $930 separating the Lexus from the slightly more expensive Acura, the edge goes to the MDX. Both share lots of technology features (but lack Apple CarPlay and Android Auto), and their V6 engines are only 5 horsepower apart (290 for the MDX and 295 for the RX 350). The MDX gets the nod because of its practicality. It has seats for seven in three rows. The MDX’s cargo capacity is 90.9 cubic feet overall compared with the RX 350’s 56.3 cubic feet. With all the seats up, however, the RX 350 has more room (18.4 for the Lexus vs. 15.8 for the Acura). You may not be able to carry seven people and all their luggage in the MDX, but at least you can accomplish one or the other. That’s not something that can be said of the RX 350.
