2. More Spacious Interior

We know that you’re getting a compact SUV because of the car-like driving experience and the room it provides for you and up to 4 other passengers to sit comfortably. Did you know that the INFINITI QX30 gives you 4.5 more cubic feet of space inside? Every inch counts on long road trips!

3. More Accident Protection

When analyzing the INFINITI QX30 vs Acura RDX dual, the numbers don’t lie. And there are 2 more airbags in the QX30, which adds knee airbags for the driver and front passenger. These airbags help prevent your legs from getting crushed during a head-to-head or side collision, which will minimize the chances of an injury in a crash.

4. Additional Device Connectivity

Again, the numbers don’t lie. You may be a USB port in the Acura RDX, but you get 2 in the INFINITI QX30. That’s a better number if you like to keep all of your devices charged and go from phone to iPod to hear your favorite music while driving around town or on highways like 80, 287 and the Turnpike or Parkway.

5. Easier Parking Experience

Parallel parking can be difficult, no matter if you’re on your hometown’s Main Street or driving to an urban area. The Around View Monitor®, which is only available in the QX30, gives you a 360-degree view of your surroundings from above, so you can park your vehicle with ease in the tightest of squeezes. Moving Object Detection is included to alert you if something gets in your path as you back up.

6. Sportier Look

If you’re looking for a compact luxury crossover with a touch-of-aggression design, you should inquire about the INFINITI QX30 Sport (QX30S). The RDX doesn’t offer anything like the QX30S, which provides such exclusive appearance features as:

  • 19” Gun Metallic aluminum-alloy wheels
  • Sport brakes with cross-drilled front rotors
  • Unique front & rear sport styling
  • Sport seats with suede-like material
  • Flat-bottom sport steering wheel
  • Lowered sport suspension
