Looked at the CX5. Very nice, and from experience, like Mazda's. Can't go wrong with either a Lexus SUV (had 3 of them), or a Mazda SUV. Can be happy with either. It's more about money management. Worth more to you to have a little extra luxury included with a Lexus, or buy a Mazda, and have a lot of money left over to spend on other things you like?

I was set to buy the 2019 Santa Fe but my wife falls into the “have extra luxury” camp so the Hyundai was denied...

I haven't really looked at other Makes because I have been treated so great with my current Lexus. It's been leaps and bounds better than the experience I had with Nissan (even after a loyal customer with 3 different vehicles). I'm afraid of going to another brand and not having the same level or better service.

I know it's a YMMV situation a lot of times but is there any SUV make and model on par with the Lexus NX that anyone here would recommend that's cheaper than the NX and worth looking at?

I was impressed with the redesigned RDX but no deals in my area.

Hate the center console set up with the RDX. And its way too overpriced. Rather get a RX at that price point.

Depends on the options and region. It does have a pano roof, more space, more powerful engine and 10 speed transmission. The RDX Advance is fully loaded with a $48k msrp. The NX F-Sport I just leased also has an msrp of $48k. The options are about the same.

I couldn't get any deals on the RDX in Minneapolis but buyers in other regions seem to fare better.

The 2019 is a huge improvement over the previous gen. It's worth a test drive.

I was also impressed with the Hyundai Santa Fe. $10k+ cheaper fully loaded. You likely won't get the same dealership experience as Lexus though.

You mean with Hyundai or Acura? I'm not a fan of Hyundai in general. I was a big Acura Integra fan when I was in high school. Always wanted one but could never afford it. Haven't looked at Acuras since then. I'll go test drive an RDX this weekend.

Even though you weren't able to get a deal, what kind of deals were others getting?

Anyone know of car forums similar to these, for Acuras? I know the Integra had a huge following wihw the Type R's and all the mods.

If they were to be believed, 10% off MSRP.

The Hyundai dealerships are pretty sparse, not the same experience as Lexus. If that's of any value to you. I can't say I'm a fan of Hyundai but the redesigned Santa Fe is nice. It's definitely a good value.

The Acura forum is called acurazine.
