2015 Acura RDX vs. 2015 Infiniti QX50

When it comes to luxury crossover sport utility vehicles, you are paying for the highest quality. At the top of the list is the competition between the 2015 Acura RDX and the 2015 Infiniti QX50. Both vehicles offer the performance and high-end features of a luxury brand, but one must come out the winner in the pursuit to buy the finest vehicle. The Audi RDX continues a long tradition of offering best-in-class efficiency and superior room over the Infiniti QX50.

Efficiency and Effortlessness

The 2015 Acura RDX is a clear front-runner in terms of fuel economy, since it has earned a best-in-class rating for its 27 mpg highway fuel efficiency. With city and combined ratings of 19 mpg and 22 mpg, respectively, it outshines the QX50. The Infiniti only offers 17 mpg in the city, 24 mpg on the highway, and 20 mpg combined. When you are tacking on miles for your adventures, you want the best gas mileage you can get. Driving is also made easier in the RDX by the addition of steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters and hill start assist, both of which are unavailable on a similarly equipped QX50.

Room for the Whole Family, Gear, and More

If you are hunting for a crossover, you probably want a balanced combination of performance and space, which is why the segment is big on numbers. In fact, the Acura RDX leads this area overall, offering a longer, wider vehicle with more cargo and passenger capacity than the QX50. When you need to carry, haul, and tow more, the RDX is a thing of beauty and workhorse all rolled into one. Numbers compare as follows:

Features RDX QX50
Length 183.5 182.3
Width 73.7 71.0
Ground Clearance 8.1 5.7
Maximum cargo volume 61.3 47.4
Standard cargo volume 26.1 18.6
Passenger volume 103.5 91.7
Max tow capacity 1500 Not Recommended

Features and Comfort

For the avid traveler, comfort features will be at the top of the list. Both the 2015 Acura RDX and the 2015 Infiniti QX50 provide a lot in the way of standard features, thanks to their status as luxury vehicles. However, the Acura edges out the Infiniti again in this department, offering dual memory adjustments for the driver, including lock settings, headlight, exterior mirrors, seat, and seat height preferences, while the QX50 does not. Likewise, the QX50 does not offer a universal garage door opener, which comes standard on the RDX and helps welcome you home every time you pull up the driveway. An auto-dimming interior mirror takes the guesswork out of ambient lighting conditions, while standard tinted and privacy glass keep peering eyes away from your interiors. Again, these features come standard on the RDX but are not on the QX50.
