What Does the 2015 Infiniti QX50 Price Offer Chicagoland?
While many Chicago area drivers in search of a new luxury crossover know that luxury vehicles tend to offer a superior value to non-luxury ones, we have to ask if the 2015 Infiniti QX50 price is worth it. While the QX50 is certainly a fine automobile, we think that the 2016 Acura RDX is able to offer more to Chicagoland drivers… and does so at a lower entry-level price.
Let’s see how these two luxury crossovers compare with each other.
For True Luxury, Try the RDX
One of the biggest differences between the QX50 and the RDX will seem like a small one at first: the 2015 Infiniti QX50 price starts at $36,400 compared to the 2016 Acura RDX’s $35,270 (MSRP).* It’s a small difference, but when you add in the many advantages the Acura has over the Infiniti, it becomes quite revealing.
Drivers will save with every trip to the pump thanks to the RDX’s superior fuel economy:
- The 2016 Acura RDX 2WD earns an EPA-estimated 29 highway and 20 city mpg for 23 mpg combined.**
- The 2015 QX50 is only rated at 24 highway and 17 city mpg (20 mpg combined).
Despite costing less, the auto value experts at ALG predict the RDX will have a superior long-term value:
- Residual value estimated for the 2016 Acura RDX come in at 58% of initial value at 36 months and 43% of initial value at 60 months.
- The QX50’s ALG residual value scores are only 51% at 36 months and 36% at 60 months.
To top it all off, the RDX includes more standard features than the QX50, such as:
- Driver-side memory settings
- One-touch power moonroof
- Power liftgate
- Jewel Eye LED headlights
- Tinted privacy glass
- Steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters
With all of these advantages, that price difference seems even more remarkable, doesn’t it?
