Powertrain and Performance

The Infiniti QX50 is known for optimizing both engine performance and fuel economy. Featuring a 2.0-liter four-cylinder variable-compression turbo engine, the QX50 is at the top of the Infiniti lineup in terms of overall technology and performance.

The Infiniti QX60 is equipped with a more powerful engine, the 3.5-liter V6 engine. Packing more power and torque, the QX60 is for those who want a sportier, reliable, and more exhilarating ride.

Interior and Exterior

The interior of the Infiniti QX50 is narrower and smaller than the QX60 but can comfortably fit 5 passengers. The QX50 prides itself with its hand-tailored leather seating and wood trim allowing drivers and passengers a luxurious drive.

The Infiniti QX60 is wider and can carry 7 passengers with the availability of the third row. Leather seating and maple wood accents make the interior feel cozy and modern at the same time.

The QX50 features softer and sleeker exteriors while the QX60 displays a more angular and tougher look. Both vehicles exude the distinct INFINITI design that is extremely sought after.

Technology and Connectivity

Since the QX50 is a more recent model, it is equipped with some newer technological features such as the ProPilot Assist, a sophisticated driving assistant from INFINITI. It also comes with an updated infotainment system that has support for Android Auto and Apple Car Play. The QX50 also has built-in standard Wi-Fi hotspot so you can be connected wherever you are.

The Infiniti QX60 has solid features as well such as adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, and lane departure prevention. It is equipped with INFINITI InTouch™ which allows you to connect with a wide range of apps and services. The QX60 is made for those long weekend trips as it also features 8-inch dual monitors to keep passengers entertained.

 

Both the QX50 and the QX60 are remarkable vehicles in their own right. Do you want more cargo space? Do you need extra seating? Are you more concerned about fuel economy? It all depends on your wants and needs. You can schedule a test drive at OpenRoad Infiniti and see for yourself which vehicle is right for you.
