Do the 2016 Infiniti QX60 Features Fit a Luxury Vehicle?

April 26th, 2016 by

2016 Acura MDXNo two drivers will want the exact same things out of a luxury crossover, but if you are looking at the 2016 Infiniti QX60 features and finding them a little lackluster for a luxury brand, we have a suggestion. The 2016 Acura MDX is available now to Wisconsin drivers, and it offers one of the most comprehensive packages of comfort, technology, and safety features. This puts Acura’s three-row crossover into the hearts and garages of many of our drivers.

Let’s see how their features compare side by side.

Acura Has the Edge on Amenities

While the needs of drivers are all different, having the latest, most advanced features is a top priority for most luxury crossover shoppers. The 2016 Infiniti QX60 standard features are a step up from non-luxury vehicles, but when compared to a a true luxury crossover, we think they come up short.

The 2016 Acura MDX base comes with the following amenities, all of which are either unavailable or require an upgrade on the Infiniti:

  • Memory adjustments for driver settings
  • Voice-activated tech controls
  • AcuraLink Next Generation telematics
  • Noise and sound cancellation
  • Jewel Eye LED headlights
  • Remote-activated perimeter lighting
  • Steering wheel–mounted paddle shifters

Each MDX also has a 3.5L V6 engine under the hood, and while the Infiniti does as well, its specs don’t quite match up:

  • A 2016 MDX is capable of 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque, towing up to 3,500 pounds when properly equipped.
  • The Infiniti QX60 only manages 265 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque.

Those are differences you’ll notice when running behind in the morning or trying to merge or pass on the highway.

Test Drive an MDX

The 2016 Acura MDX not only beats the 2016 Infiniti QX60 standard features and engine specs, it is one of the few three-row luxury crossovers on the market. The Infiniti only has two rows of seating as standard, leaving room for just a small family at best. Let us show you all of the features of the 2016 MDX so you can see for yourself why so many Wisconsin area drivers choose it as their luxury crossover.
