2017 Acura RDXIf you’re shopping for a crossover SUV at the luxury end of the market, you may have wondered how far your gas dollars will go with the 2016 Infiniti QX70 mpg achievements.

Does the QX70 offer superior fuel economy? Or does a competing luxury crossover like the 2017 Acura RDX serve up greater gasoline efficiency (and thereby lighten its impact on the environment)? Keep reading, and we’ll compare the mpg ratings of both the QX70 and the RDX to reveal the gas-sipping winner.

Fuel Stats

Onboard the RDX, drivers will reap the benefits of an EPA-estimated 20 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway in the FWD models* and 19 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway in the AWD models*—both impressive fuel economy achievements that are more like the offerings of a car than an SUV.

In contrast, the QX70 RWD models offer only 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway, and the QX70 AWD models bring just 16 city mpg and 22 highway mpg.

The Acura RDX further achieves best-in-class efficiency with its mighty 3.5L i-VTEC V6 engine, which delivers 279 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque and features a variable cylinder management system and low-friction technology.

This engine is paired with a standard 6-speed Sequential SportShift automatic transmission. The available all-wheel drive with Intelligent Control helps boost the use of available traction in various road conditions while also reducing friction and power loss, thereby maximizing fuel economy.

The Infiniti QX70 models are powered by a 3.7L 24-valve V6 engine that generates 325 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque.
