The Acura RDX interior was designed with 104 cubic feet of passenger volume, while the interior of the Lexus NX is a bit more cramped with only 72 cubic feet of passenger space. If you need to haul bulky items, the RDX is the better choice. With the seats folded, you will have 58.9 cubic feet for cargo.
