Used Acura RDX vs. Used Lexus NX 300 Resale Value

When J.D. Power scored last year’s 2020 Acura RDX and Lexus NX 300 SUVs on resale value, they measured expected rates of depreciation for each model, given historical data of how previous years for each model had fared on the market. Mount Vernon drivers will be pleased to know that both models received a “Great” rating. However, the Lexus NX 300 took the edge, earning a score of “84” compared to the Acura RDX’s score of “80.” Regardless of which model you choose, rest assured that you’ve made a comparably good investment.

When it comes to reliability, J.D. Powers rated the NX 300 with an “80” and the RDX with a “71.” Again, we’re handing this one to the Lexus.

Used Acura RDX vs. Used Lexus NX: Performance

For our purposes, we’re going to use last year’s model again as an example to give you an idea of how you can generally differentiate the strengths of the Acura RDX from the strengths of the Lexus NX. Both the 2020 Acura RDX and 2020 Lexus NX were designed to compete with each other, however, New Rochelle drivers will see that the RDX takes the cake when it comes to power. Both models only featured one engine option in 2020. Here’s how their specs compared:

Fuel Economy:

  • Lexus NX (FWD): 22 mpg/city and 28/mpg highway
  • Acura RDX (FWD): 22 mpg/city and 28/mpg highway


  • Acura RDX: 272 hp 
  • Lexus NX: 235 hp
