2016 Acura RLX vs. 2016 Infiniti Q70
2016 Acura RLX
2016 Infiniti Q70
Hybrids have been around for a while, but they’re not really known for being performance vehicles. That perception is changing as new high-end hybrids start to really compete in the affluent market. The Acura RLX is a great example of how you don’t have to sacrifice luxury and performance to have an eco-friendly vehicle. The RLX and the Infiniti Q70 are two examples of luxury vehicles that incorporate all the latest technology. But how do they actually perform? Let’s take a look and see how each one rates in a few different categories. We looked at the 2016 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid Base (A7) and compared it to the 2016 Infiniti Q70 3.7 Sport.
Efficiency is always an important consideration, no matter what kind of car you are looking for. Not only does the RLX Sport Hybrid offer start/stop for the gas engine to reduce power, but it gets an estimated 8.0L/100 km in the city and 7.5L/100km on the highway, for a combined mileage estimate of 7.8/100 km. This Q70 configuration only achieves 13.2L/100 km in the city, 9.7L/100 km highway, and 11.6/100 km combined. This is a huge difference between the two, and what it means is big cost savings at the fuel pump.
Luxury and Convenience
The RLX Sport Hybrid possesses several driver and passenger-oriented features that the Q70 does not. For example, the RLX Sport Hybrid has remote engine start, which lets you get the engine started to heat up or cool off your car before you get in. It also contains voice-activated air conditioning. There is a separate rear air conditioner and heated rear seats, plus three first-row LCD monitors for entertainment in the back. Your passengers will be more comfortable and in control of their riding experience in the RLX Sport Hybrid. To ensure that you don’t get lost no matter where you go, the Acura RLX Sport Hybrid also is equipped with a built-in compass. The competitor from Infiniti does not include those amenities at this trim level.
