2015 Acura RDX vs. 2014 Infiniti QX50 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Acura RDX than in the Infiniti QX50. The Infiniti QX50 will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Acura RDX.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Acura RDX as you will with the Infiniti QX50, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Acura RDX will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Infiniti QX50. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Acura RDX carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Infiniti QX50.

Dimensions
Since the Acura RDX is much wider than the Infiniti QX50, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Acura RDX takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Infiniti QX50.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Acura RDX doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Infiniti QX50.

Handling
The Acura RDX has a larger turning radius than the Infiniti QX50, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Acura RDX has a little less horsepower than the Infiniti QX50.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Acura RDX and the Infiniti QX50. With the Acura RDX, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Infiniti QX50.

Warranty
The Infiniti QX50 offers a little more coverage in its basic warranty than the Acura RDX.
