2013 Infiniti M56x vs. 2014 Acura RLX Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Acura RLX than the Infiniti M56x, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Infiniti M56x will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Acura RLX.

Convenience
With the Acura RLX you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Infiniti M56x, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). The Infiniti M56x will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Acura RLX, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Infiniti M56x and the Acura RLX have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Infiniti M56x is much slimmer than the Acura RLX, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Infiniti M56x takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Acura RLX.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Infiniti M56x does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Acura RLX.

Handling
The Infiniti M56x has a smaller turning radius than the Acura RLX, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Infiniti M56x has a much more powerful engine than the Acura RLX. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Infiniti M56x and the Acura RLX. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Infiniti M56x as you will in the Acura RLX.

Warranty
The basic warranty for the Infiniti M56x offers a little more coverage than the basic warranty of the Acura RLX in terms of months/miles.
