2017 Acura RDX vs 2017 INFINITI QX50 near Milwaukee, WI

Taking the best two compact luxury crossovers and comparing them is no easy task. The 2017 Acura RDX vs 2017 INFINITI QX50 near Milwaukee, WI, competition was heated, to say the least, but when the dust settled, only the RDX remained standing as the champion. Acura of Brookfield boasts the RDX in stock, so visit our dealership today for a test drive in this one-of-a-kind winner!

Space is a key element with which the RDX pulled ahead, so we can’t underestimate both the interior and exterior dimensions of these crossovers. With the RDX’s 73.7-inch wide body, you’ll be able to fit passengers more comfortably inside than in the QX50’s 71-inch wide build. While the QX50 provides you with 37.7 inches of headroom, the RDX takes it a step further and accommodates even the tallest passengers with 38.1 inches of headroom. Back-row passengers will be happy with the RDX’s 38.3-inch legroom space, but the QX50 disappoints with only 35.3 inches of legroom. The QX50 is not recommended for towing at all, but the RDX can muscle a 1,500-lb. towing capacity1 easily, and is even pre-wired for hauling the heaviest cargo. With both back rows folded down to open up maximum cargo volume, the RDX triumphs again with 61.3 cubic ft. of space2 over the QX50’s 50.1 cubic ft. of room3.

Performance is a major category in the comparison of the 2017 Acura RDX vs 2017 INFINITI QX50 near Milwaukee, WI, and the RDX gets right down to it with standard Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters and a Drive-by-WireTM throttle control to make your ride even smoother. The QX50 merely provides you with an Adaptive Shift Control and snow mode throttle control. With Hill Start Assist as a standard feature in the Acura RDX, you’ll have maximum stability on those upward challenges, but without it in the INFINITI QX50, you could have a hard time finding that same level of durability on the roads. The RDX produces a fuel rating of 20/28 MPG city/hwy4, while the INFINITI QX50 only expels a fuel economy of 17/24 MPG city/hwy5.

In our comparison of the 2017 Acura RDX vs 2017 INFINITI QX50 near Milwaukee, WI, the interior and exterior amenities have endless differences. We find that the RDX boasts a 2-driver adjustment memory function, so you can easily configure the ideal position for you, and offers a height adjustment. The INFINITI QX50 neglects these features altogether. Though you can opt for the available automatic dimming rearview mirror and HomeLink system in the QX50, the RDX already has these amenities implemented in its cabin. With Jewel Eye LED headlights as standard features, the RDX immediately outperforms the QX50’s halogen headlights. Though both crossovers have a hatchback design, only the RDX allows you to open the liftgate remotely.

In a contest of compact luxury crossovers, the 2017 Acura RDX vs 2017 INFINITI QX50 near Milwaukee, WI, comparison puts the RDX in the lead. Come on down to Acura of Brookfield for a look at this crossover, and get behind the wheel for the ride of a lifetime before you take one home as soon as today.
