Buying a luxury vehicle is a process that should be completed methodically and with great attention to value and features. Two of the most popular vehicles in the luxury sedan market are the 2014 Acura RLX and the 2013 Lexus GS 350 RWD. If you are a prospective car buyer trying to choose which of these vehicles is right for your driving necessities, it is important that you compare their features and included options so that you can pick the right ride.
Climate control is one of the most important elements of comfort for those in the car driving. Although both vehicles come with automatic climate control, rear seat heating and air conditioning controls come standard on the RLX, while the GS 350 only has the option for them. When it comes to safety features, both vehicles have standard traction control systems, brake assistance, and active head restraints. However, the 2014 Acura RLX includes a standard accident avoidance system, while the Lexus GS 350 RWD has this feature as an option.
For those that want to have a vehicle that is large enough for all their family trips and outings, dimensions and cargo capacity are important. The 2014 Acura RLX offers 14.9 cubic feet of cargo volume compared to the GS 350’s 14.3. The RLX also has more rear legroom than the GS 350 RWD, offering 38.8 inches in comparison to the GS 350’s 36.3. For any long trip, the cost of gas is also a concern. The 2014 RLX provides 20 city mpg, 31 highway mpg, and a 24 combined mpg fuel economy in comparison to the GS 350’s 19 city mpg, 28 highway mpg, and 23 combined mpg, which gives an edge to the RLX.
Lexus and Acura are two of the premier luxury auto manufacturers today. People that are trying to purchase a new vehicle may find both the 2014 Acura RLX and the 2013 Lexus GS 350 RWD acceptable. However, the 2014 RLX has an advantage over the GS 350 because of better gas mileage, greater cargo volume, and more legroom.
