Lexus NX vs RX

If you’re on the hunt for a luxury SUV near Bedford, Manchester, or Merrimack, you can’t go wrong with either the 2019 Lexus NX or 2019 Lexus RX. But while both vehicles come with lots of impressive features, one may be a better fit for you than the other.

We’ll help you decide which one that is—in our Lexus NX vs. RX comparison. See what the similarities and differences are between each model, and contact Ira Lexus of Manchester if you have any questions.


The biggest difference between these vehicles is that the NX is a compact SUV, while the RX is a midsize SUV. However, despite the differences in size, they have more than enough stretching room for five people.
Lexus NX vs RXIn the 2019 LEXUS NX, you get 42.8 inches of front legroom and 36.1 inches of rear legroom. Then in the 2019 Lexus RX, you have 44.1 inches of front legroom and 38 inches of rear legroom. With all this space in each row, even taller passengers will feel comfortable on longer drives.
These SUVs offer lots of cargo space, too. In the NX, you get 54.6 cubic feet when the rear seats are folded down. The RX, meanwhile, gives you 56.3 cubic feet behind the first row.
Both vehicles offer a hands-free liftgate. To use the Power Rear Door with Kick Sensor, just swipe your foot under the rear bumper. The liftgate will then automatically open, for quick and easy access.


While the 2019 NX and 2019 LEXUS RX vary in size, they both offer lots of amenities to help keep everyone on board happy.
These include heated and ventilated front seats, along with a heated steering wheel. When these optional features are in place, you can quickly warm up or cool down with just the touch of a button.
You also get dual-zone automatic climate control standard in each model. If you need to warm up, while your co-pilot wants to cool down, you can both adjust the cabin temperature. That way, no one needs to be too hot or too cold throughout any ride.

The Lexus NX and Lexus RX also have tons of technologies that can help keep you entertained and safe. For instance, they both come standard with:

Then, connect it to the vehicle’s USB port to listen to live radio, check sports scores, and more, without messing with your mobile device while driving. Plus, voice recognition makes it easier than ever to navigate through the app suite.
