2020 QX60 vs 2020 MDX: Performance & Capability

2020 INFINITI QX60Elegance and power combine in these luxury SUVs, giving you a driving experience like no other. This is thanks to progressive equipment under each of their hoods engineered to impress.

The INFINITI QX60 is powered by the robust 3.5L V6 engine that generates 295 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. This powertrain is melded to an electronic continuously variable transmission that is equipped with a manual shift mode for tailoring your drive when you see fit. Additionally, AWD is available for this model for extra traction.

On the other hand, the Acura MDX sports a 3.5L V6 engine that produces slightly less oomph with 290 horsepower and 257 lb-ft of torque. AWD is also available for this model, but its 9-speed transmission does not offer the lightning-quick acceleration that its competitor has.

Additionally, because of the extra strength found in the INFINITI model, it can tow up to 5,000 pounds when properly equipped. Unfortunately, the Acura maxes out at 3,500 pounds standardly.

QX60 vs MDX: Technology

Such impressive performances should be paired with high-end technologies, giving you the ultimate commute every time you’re behind the wheel.

The 2020 INFINITI QX60 does this with its standard 8-inch infotainment system. This allows you to integrate your smartphone, access your favorite apps, and receive streamlined directions with its advanced navigation system. You can also opt for two 8-inch dual screens in the back as well as a 15-speaker Bose® Centerpoint® sound system to really amp up entertainment.

The Acura MDX also comes standard with an 8-inch multimedia system that offers similar features. However, it’s the upgrades that differ in this model. Instead of giving your backseat passengers two screens to entertain themselves, they offer one overhead display. Plus, their advanced ELS Studio® audio system offers five fewer speakers.
