7.9/10

The interior is an insane work of art. Everything inside feels opulent and magnificent inside this wonderful cabin which further helps it offer a profound driving experience.

2021 Infiniti QX60 Competition

6.0/10

2021 Infiniti QX60 vs 2021 Acura MDX:

Both these cars use the same 3.5-liter V6 engine but the Infiniti edges over the Acura in terms of acceleration owing to its wonderful engine. It hits 0-60 mph in 5.3 seconds. Whereas the 2021 Acura MDX does it in 6.6 seconds which is a tad behind. But due to the CVT transmission that comes standard for the Infiniti, it lags behind when it comes to top speed. The Acura, with its 9-speed automatic transmission, offers more usable power and it reflects in its performance. In terms of interior dimensions, the Infiniti QX60 clearly beats the Acura with more front and rear row space on offer. Moreover, the Acura MDX is a tad more expensive than the Infiniti and pretty much underperforms in every aspect except for the mileage.

2021 Acura MDX

2021 Infiniti QX60 vs 2021 Cadillac XT5:

The Cadillac XT5 comes equipped with a bit more huge 3.6-liter V6 engine and puts out more power than the Infiniti QX60. Although having more power it is not able to trump the Infiniti in the 0-60 mph test but it pulls only after that. In the quarter miles test, it clearly triumphs with a quarter-mile time of 15.2 seconds, and also it is the only car with the highest top speed of 155 mph. It also handles better than the QX60. Thanks to its power to weight ratio. The Cadillac weighs only 3985 lbs. Nevertheless, it offers a dismal fuel economy and interior dimensions. The interior is a bit crampy for the rear passengers.

2021 Cadillac XT5

2021 Infiniti QX60 vs 2021 Buick Enclave:

The Buick Enclave wins the competition when it comes to interior spacing. It offers the most generous cabin of the lot. It keeps all the passengers comfortable throughout the journey. On the downside, it offers the lowest mileage in its class. Moreover, it is also faster than Infiniti due to its power advantage. It even looks better than some of its rivals and happens to be one of the most affordable cars in its class. The technology and features that come with this car are really cutting edge. Buick has got it right with this eye-catching SUV.

2021 Buick Enclave

 

2021 Infiniti QX60 Final Verdict

The Infiniti QX60 seems to be a very good luxury family SUV when seen in isolation but loses to some of its rivals in some aspects. Nonetheless, it provides you with tons of luxury features on tap and the ideology of the interior is to make life grandeur once you step inside the car. The engine performance is not upto the mark when compared to its rivals. The interior space is on the mediocre side but it offers a spot-on interior with some best-in-class features. Moving on to the exterior, it could easily turn the heads of the people who love SUVs. In a nutshell, it is a good car but not the best and when it comes to buying decisions, we would suggest it for its luxury interior, best in class mileage and dashing looks.
