Released early in 2021, the Infiniti QX55 is an SUV coupe that is intended as a replacement for the QX70 which ceased production in 2018. Since hitting the North American market, the Infiniti QX55 has become extremely popular with people looking to own luxury SUV coupes and is now a serious rival to other vehicles in the luxury SUV coupe sector. One of these vehicles is the Acura RDX, the premium sport crossover SUV.
If you are having trouble with your Infiniti QX55 vs Acura RDX purchasing decision, then we are here to help. Here we make an Infiniti QX55 vs Acura RDX comparison in the hope of discovering which, out of the two, is the better vehicle.
Our Exclusive Infiniti QX55 vs Acura RDX Comparison – Which Vehicle Comes Out on Top?
The Infiniti QX55 is a contemporary-looking ‘coupe style’ crossover SUV with a slick and sporty look. It has all the custom good looks you’d expect from any Infiniti vehicle and comes with all-wheel drive as standard (the Acura has RWD as standard, but AWD is available as an upgrade). When it comes to options you can ‘dress’ your QX55 in any way that you deem suitable, as you are not stuck with rigid package upgrades, as you are with the Acura RDX.
The RDX is tasteful with a spacious cabin and the kinds of premium build quality you’d naturally expect from Acura. This car though does not come with any hybrid option, and if you want to use your Acura RDX for towing, then you can forget it.
Both cars come with all the tech features you’d expect from any modern vehicle, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto (not wireless with the Acura RDX), plus a whole host of driver assistance aids.
Comparing the Infiniti QX55 vs Acura RDX in Terms of Power and Performance
The Infiniti QX55 was a stand-out on its release, and that has remained the case ever since. The QX55 can boast a 2.0L VC-Turbo 4-cylinder engine capable of generating a pleasing 268 hp. The Acura also has a 2.0L VC-Turbo 4-cylinder engine that generates almost identical numbers, maxing out at 272 hp. That makes the Acura RDX a slightly thirstier vehicle – 24 mpg all round in terms of fuel economy compared to the 25 mpg that the Infiniti QX55 can provide you with. There’s very little to choose between them but one item of importance – the basic warranty with the QX55 lasts for 60,000 miles which is 10,000 miles more than your Acura RDX is covered for.
