Acura vs. Infiniti: Which One is Right for You?

2018 Acura RLX

Infinity qx60

Over the last 30 years, Acura and Infiniti have both maintained their luxury panache, all while expanding product lines. Today, they seem neck-in-neck in the luxury car market.

Which brand is right for you?

Bahn-stormer vs. Boulevardier

USNews recently compared the two and found—in many ways—the decision comes down to what sort of driver you are.

Infiniti has honed their image as a performance brand. Infiniti makes powerful rear-drive sedans (and SUV’s) with a need for speed and the German marques squarely in their sights.

Acura, while not sedate by any means, tends to optimize their sedans and SUVs for relaxed cruising and practical use. That’s in keeping with the pragmatism of parent company Honda.

Expect knife-edged performance from Infiniti. Expect practical ease and comfortable travel from Acura. Which do you prefer?

Superb Safety

Both Acura and Infiniti score highly in crash tests.

However, Acura gets the nod from USNews thanks to their inclusion of advanced active safety features as standard on many models. Though Infiniti offers some of the same features (like Adaptive Cruise Control and Forward Collision Avoidance), most are available only in extra-cost packages.

The emphasis on safety is another element of Acura’s practicality.

Lower Cost

Finally, we have the issue of cost.

Infiniti offers great cars at a great price. However, that price is uniformly higher than corresponding Acura models.

The Acura ILX is a good example. The ILX is a full-featured small luxury sedan at a remarkably affordable price. Infiniti has no direct competitor.
