The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Infiniti QX50 has the performance (and attitude) of a sport sedan, along with rich, warm cabin appointments and standout tech; but compared to almost any other crossover its interior isn't very useful behind the front seats. The 2014 Acura RDX offers a relatively sporty look and driving feel, as well as a quiet, comfortable interior and top-notch safety; but features or flair it's no standout.
