Performance Comparison

Under the hood of the 2023 Acura RDX lies a 272-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine. With a 10-speed automatic transmission and optional SH-AWD, the RDX ensures a balanced and responsive driving experience. Its performance is notable, delivering a mid-pack 0-60 mph time of 6.2 seconds.

The 2023 Infiniti QX50, on the other hand, is powered by a variable-compression turbocharged four-cylinder engine, pushing out 268 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. However, the combination of its engine and the continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) fails to deliver the anticipated performance and efficiency.

Exterior Comparison

The Acura RDX showcases a striking exterior design that brilliantly marries athleticism with sophistication. Its daring lines and sharply defined edges create a bold statement that is hard to ignore. The front grille, accented by the Acura logo, sets the tone for the aggressive yet polished design language that is consistent throughout the vehicle.

In contrast, the Infiniti QX50 adheres to a subtler approach, favouring a sense of restrained elegance. It presents a sleek silhouette that emanates an aura of sophistication. Its soft curves and fluid lines lend a luxurious aesthetic unmistakably Infiniti. The introduction of the new Sport trim further enhances its appeal. 

Interior Comparison

Once you step inside the Acura RDX, you're greeted with a sporty yet refined experience that caters to the modern driver. The interior is a well-conceived blend of quality, comfort, and functionality. The sport seats wrapped in premium materials provide supportive comfort, while the cockpit-style layout of the dashboard puts everything within easy reach of the driver, prioritizing ergonomics without compromising on style.

On the other hand, the Infiniti QX50 pampers you with a thoughtfully designed and luxuriously crafted interior that speaks volumes about the brand's attention to detail. One of the standout features is the semi-aniline leather upholstery that adds a touch of elegance and superior comfort. The cabin is spacious, with a particular emphasis on rear passenger comfort. 

Technology Features Comparison

Both vehicles are generously equipped with technology. The Acura RDX is home to a 10.2-inch touchscreen, offering standard wireless Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a Wi-Fi hotspot. For those craving more, the Technology package adds built-in navigation, rear-seat USB ports, and a 12-speaker ELS Studio audio system.

The Infiniti QX50, meanwhile, features a dual-touchscreen infotainment system, ensuring seamless connectivity with wireless Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a subscription-based Wi-Fi hotspot. There are also optional 12- and 16-speaker Bose stereo systems for a richer audio experience.

Safety Features Comparison

In terms of safety, both SUVs score high. The Acura RDX and Infiniti QX50 come standard with advanced safety features such as forward-collision warning, automated emergency braking, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control. The Acura RDX adds the Technology package with blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, while the Infiniti QX50 features standard blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert for enhanced protection.
