INFINITI QX55

Technology & Safety

Multiple safety and driver-assist systems occupy both crossovers, but the differences surface when examining standard and available features. For example, Blind Spot Warning comes standard with optional Blind Spot Intervention® in the INFINITI QX55, while the Acura only offers a single blind spot information system.

Also, both Rear Automatic Braking and Rear Cross Traffic Alert are equipped in every INFINITI QX55 trim. An available Rear Cross Traffic Monitor can be found in the Acura, but Rear Automatic Braking is not available. You’ll be able to add Traffic Sign Recognition to either the INFINITI QX55 or Acura RDX for added confidence on the open road.


INFINITI QX55

Comfort

Many amenities emerge in both cars, but you do receive more upscale features in the INFINITI QX55. For instance, you’ll have the standard 2-driver memory system with the opportunity to upgrade to climate-controlled seating. For individual temperature settings, look toward the available Tri-Zone Automatic Temperature Control system for personalized adjustability.
