2017 Acura RDX drivingOn the surface, the 2017 Infiniti QX70 RWD and the 2017 Acura RDX may look like relatively close competitors, but Chicagoland drivers won’t be deceived by first impressions. As it turns out, the 2017 Acura RDX offers a number of unique standard features, as well as superior fuel economy, for a much more reasonable price! Even the top-of-the-line Acura RDX—which offers dozens of standard features you won’t find on the QX70—is more affordable than the baseline trim of this Infiniti.

Standard Features of the Infiniti QX70 vs. the Acura RDX

The 2017 Infiniti QX70 and the 2017 Acura RDX share many features, but the RDX wins out in several key respects. 2017 Acura RDX models come standard with a two-setting memory function for its driver’s seat, a feature that is only available as an optional upgrade in the Infiniti QX70. This feature makes it easy for you and your partner to alternate between your preferred vehicle settings with just the push of a button. Likewise, in this competition, only the RDX comes standard with safety features like LED headlights, daytime running lights, and a radio theft-deterrence system.

When you take the RDX out on the road, you can drive with the confidence that come with standard features like hill start assist and front-wheel drive. Both of these performance-enhancing features require an additional charge in the 2017 Infiniti QX70. Additionally, the RDX also has the edge in terms of fuel economy. Acura RDX two-wheel drive models get an EPA-estimated 20 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway,* while the Infiniti only manages 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway.
