The 2019 QX60 and 2019 Q7 have plenty of high-tech features to help make your drives more pleasant. For example, they both come standard with heated front seats to stay cozy on chillier nights. However, the QX60 also offers available heated second-row outboard seats, along with a heated steering wheel.
For connectivity and entertainment, each SUV comes standard with SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, as well as Bluetooth® technology to stream audio or make hands-free phone calls.
In addition, the INFINITI QX60 offers a rear-seat entertainment system to keep the backseat passengers happy. It comes with dual 8-inch screens, wireless headphones and remote, and storage for movies or video games. Unfortunately, the Audi Q7 doesn’t have a rear-seat entertainment system in any trim level.
INFINITI QX60 vs Audi Q7: Performance Specs
The QX60 comes with a 3.5L V6 engine that puts out 295 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. It’s known for accelerating easily and smoothly with an electronically controlled Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). It’s also known for being easy to drive and park, thanks to its lightweight steering.
The Q7 is also known for having a smooth and composed ride. However, its standard 2.0L 4-cylinder engine isn’t quite as powerful, delivering 248 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque.
The Audi vehicle is also not quite as fuel-efficient. When equipped with an 8-speed Tiptronic® transmission, it can achieve an EPA-estimated 19 city/25 highway MPG. The QX60, on the other hand, can achieve an EPA-estimated 20 city/27 highway MPG when equipped with the CVT.*
INFINITI QX60 vs Audi Q7: Verdict
