Compact Crossover Duel: INFINITI QX50 vs Acura RDX


You’re probably comparing the INFINITI QX50 vs Acura RDX if you’re shopping for a new luxury compact crossover SUV. Both give you the feel of a car with the body of a small SUV, as well as an advanced feature suite.

However, there are a few key differences between the RDX and QX50 that you should know about.

INFINITI QX50 vs Acura RDX By the Numbers

QX50 vs RDXFront Legroom

The INFINITI QX50 offers up 44.3” of legroom for the front row. This is over 2” more than the Acura RDX’s 1st row, making the QX50 a great choice for taller drivers or those who want a little space for added comfort.

Premium Audio System

The Bose® 11-speaker Premium Sound system is available in the QX50, while the Acura/ELS Studio® Premium Audio System only has 10 speakers. That means you get 1 more speaker to enhance your music-listening experience.

RDX vs QX50Basic Warranty

Both the RDX and QX50 have basic bumper-to-bumper warranties that cover the vehicle for 4 years. However, Infiniti’s 60,000-mile limit is 10,000 miles more than Acura’s maximum coverage. We know that every mile counts since you think about the mileage more than the number of years you’ve driven your vehicle.

V6 Engine Power

The INFINITI QX50’s V6 is capable of producing 325 hp & 267 lb/ft of torque, while the Acura RDX’s V6 delivers just 279 hp & 252 lb/ft of torque. That means you have more oomph for every drive, which makes riding on the highway and driving in the winter that much easier.


19″ Tire & Wheel Package

New for the 2017 INFINITI QX50 is the 19″ Tire & Wheel Package, which gives you 19” split 5-spoke aluminum-alloy wheels with 245/45R19 all-season performance tires that give you the traction you need no matter what time of year it is. Nineteen-inch wheels are not offered for the 2017 Acura RDX.
