Buyers looking to get into a luxury vehicle cannot go wrong with a small luxury SUV. They offer the features, space, and performance that many drivers need, along with the luxurious features and comfortable cabin environment that they want.

The 2021 Acura RDX might be the smallest of Acura's SUVs, but it packs a powerful punch. Built with a peppy turbocharged engine, generous cargo capacity, and luxury features, it is an ideal SUV for those wanting five-passenger luxury without breaking the bank.

 

Starting at $44,505, the 2021 Acura RDX is offered in five models: RDX, Tech, A-Spec, Elite, and Platinum Elite. Every model of the RDX features a 272-hp 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine, 7-inch multi-information display, 10.2-inch multimedia touchscreen display, ambient lighting, dual-zone automatic climate control, remote engine starter, smartphone integration, 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth, and more.

Shopping for a small luxury SUV can be tricky with too many being too much like a hatchback or a truck instead of a true SUV. The 2021 Lexus NX fits right in the middle and offers occupants a spacious cabin and overall sense of luxury.

 

Starting at $44,600, the Lexus NX is only available in two models. The NX 300 is built with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine and features an 8-inch touchscreen display, Bluetooth capability, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, SiriusXM, and more. The NX 300h starts at $47,100 and features the Lexus Hybrid Drive engine that offers 7.6 L/100km combined fuel economy.

While very close in price, Acura blows away the Lexus in terms of engine capability and storage space. In addition, Acura includes many more standard driver-assist features on the RDX than the Lexus does on the NX, including lane departure warning, road departure mitigation, forward collision warning, automatic high beams, collision braking system, adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, and lane keeping assist.

 

While both cars offer style and luxury, the 2021 Acura RDX is the better vehicle in terms of value and features.
