If you’re in the market for a sporty luxury SUV, you’ve probably considered both the 2022 INFINITI QX50 and the 2022 Acura MDX. Both of these models provide upscale amenities, advanced technology, and top-of-the-line ride quality — but the 2022 INFINITI QX50 has an edge over the competition. It offers better fuel efficiency, a more spacious interior, better value, and even a superior warranty program. Here’s a look at why the 2022 INFINITI QX50 comes out on top.
If you’re looking to save on gasoline, the 2022 INFINITI offers better fuel economy than the Acura MDX. No matter how you slice it, the INFINITI QX50 comes out on top. On the highway, the QX50 earns up to 29 mpg; on city streets, it offers an estimated 26 mpg.  On the other hand, the Acura MDX provides 26 mpg on the highway, and 19 mpg in the city. This advantage holds up even when the INFINITI QX50 is equipped with all-wheel drive — an AWD-enabled QX50 earns 28 mpg on the highway and 25 mpg in the city.
Room to stretch out
Don’t want to feel cramped in your luxury vehicle? The INFINITI QX50 is the right pick for you — it offers more front and rear headroom than the Acura MDX. These dimensions make the QX50 more comfortable for tall passengers and drivers. Unlike the Acura MDX, which offers three cramped rows of seating, the INFINITI QX50 is a five-seat model that’s roomy enough to accommodate adults and teens in the backseat.
Compared to the Acura MDX, the INFINITI QX50 makes better use of its space. It offers 31.4 cubic feet of storage room with all of the seats in place, while the Acura MDX provides 18.1 cubic feet of cargo space behind its rear seats. If you fold down the rear seats, the QX50 offers up to 65.1 cubic feet of space. With the rearmost seats folded flat, the MDX only offers 48.4 cubic feet of storage space.
Advanced safety features
When it comes to keeping you safe on the road, the INFINITI QX50 and the Acura MDX both offer a range of standard driver-assist technologies. However, the INFINITI comes out ahead in terms of collision protection — it comes standard with rear-side airbags, which aren’t offered on the Acura model.
Get more for your money
Despite all of these advantages, the INFINITI QX50 is significantly more affordable than its Acura rival. When it comes to comparing the starting price of both models, the entry-level QX50 costs nearly $10,000 less than the Acura MDX.
Every INFINITI QX50 comes standard with front and rear performance tires for better handling and driving dynamics. Tires like that are only optional on the Acura MDX. And when it comes to expressing your style, the QX50 offers eight vibrant exterior color choices. The Acura MDX only offers seven options.
The benefits of buying INFINITI
When you choose an INFINITI QX50, you’ll get a vehicle that’s backed by a better warranty than Acura offers. The QX50 comes with a New Vehicle Warranty that covers your SUV for 60,000 miles or 48 months, whichever comes first. Acura also offers 48 months of coverage, but only a 50,000-mile limit. In addition to that, the QX50 boasts a 6-year/70,000-mile powertrain warranty, along with a Federal Emission Performance and Defect Warranty, which covers your vehicle for 96 months or 80,000 miles.If you’re looking for a luxury SUV that delivers style, versatility, safety, and value, choose the 2022 INFINITI QX50 over the competition.
