2017 Acura RDXIf you’re in the market for a luxury crossover that is loaded with high-end amenities, you may wonder how the 2017 Infiniti QX70 standard features compare to the offerings of a rival crossover like the 2017 Acura RDX.

Will drivers get more of the prime amenities they want onboard the QX70—or does the Acura RDX offer much more for the money? Read on to find out.
