What’s the Fuel Economy of the 2015 Infiniti QX50 Like?

November 5th, 2014 by

When you’re shopping for a luxury crossover, you basically have to sacrifice fuel economy, right? Well, not so much. The 2015 Infiniti QX50 falls in line with the idea that you can either have a stylish and powerful luxury crossover or you can have a fuel efficient one. Of course, if you know about the 2015 Acura RDX, you know that you don’t have to compromise on power, efficiency, or style on your luxury crossover.

Drivers Save in an Acura

The 2015 Acura RDX 6-Spd AT is the standard version of the luxury crossover, and without any upgrades or changes to the vehicle, you can enjoy one of the best fuel economies in its class: an EPA-estimated 28 highway mpg.* The Infiniti only manages to earn 24 mpg fuel economy on the highway.

You might expect that you’ll have to compromise quite a bit on power to earn a fuel economy so high, and yet the V6 engine of the RDX is capable of 273 hp and 251 lb-ft of torque!

But we’re not done yet. Not only can you save in the long term, the RDX is more affordably priced than the QX50 as well. The 2015 RDX 6-Spd AT is priced at just $35,095 (MSRP)** while the Infiniti comes in at $36,400.

Would you believe that the RDX comes with plenty of features you won’t find on the QX50 as well? Here are just a few of them:

  • Paddle shifters
  • Driver side memory settings
  • Power moonroof
  • Tinted privacy glass
  • Acura-exclusive Jewel Eye LED headlights
