2019 INFINITI QX60 vs 2019 Buick Enclave
The number of available crossover SUV models has been growing for quite a while—and for good reason. Often, they offer better fuel economy than their larger full-size SUV relatives. They also have great safety features, retain ample seating and storage space, and generally have an engine powerful enough to please even the most performance-oriented driver.
This year, the debate between the 2019 INFINITI QX60 vs. 2019 Buick Enclave has already started on the road and at dealerships. That’s why the experts at Norm Reeves Cerritos INFINITI put this comparison guide together for the drivers in and around Cerritos, Mission Viejo, and Orange County.
We hope that this guide can help you make an educated decision and drive away with the vehicle that suits your needs!
INFINITI QX60 vs Buick Enclave: Power & Efficiency
The 2019 INFINITI QX60 and 2019 Buick Enclave have similar engine displacements. However, the QX60 produces 270 lb-ft of torque, which gives it an edge over the 266 lb-ft of torque the Enclave provides. Its higher torque output allows the 2019 QX60 to have more energy to fly up and down those steep and winding roads.
You might expect the fuel efficiency of the INFINITI QX60 to suffer with such a powerful engine configuration, but it has a steadfast EPA-estimated fuel economy of 20 city/27 highway MPG.* When compared to the lower fuel efficiency of the Buick Enclave, which only offers 18 city/26 highway MPG, it’s clear which vehicle will easily keep up with wherever your next adventure takes you.
Whether you take your 2019 QX60 on a highway or a country road, you’ll have the ability to go where you want without worrying about the fuel gauge for a while.
QX60 vs Enclave: Comfort & Interior Design
Both vehicles seat up to seven people comfortably. What we like about the INFINITI QX60, however, is that it has a bench seat in the second row and not the third like the Enclave. If you have children, then you understand what a hassle it can be to seat everyone comfortably if they’re crowding the third row. With only two seats in the rear of the 2019 QX60, everyone can enjoy their personal space.
You can enjoy increased legroom in the 2019 QX60 along with leatherette-appointed seating and an 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat. While both the INFITINITI QX60 and Buick Enclave have this feature, only the QX60 has a leather-wrapped shift knob and graphite weave trim to make your ride feel that much more polished.
One smaller design touch that isn’t present in the Enclave interior are the dual overhead map and rear-seat reading lights that come standard in the INFINITI QX60. This minute feature ensures convenience and comfort for you and any passengers.
INFINITI QX60 vs Buick Enclave: Safety & Driver-Assistive Features
The INFINITI QX60 and Buick Enclave have well-equipped driver-assistive suites and safety features. However, the 2019 QX60 has an available industry-first Backup Collision Intervention system to allow you to reverse with confidence in the tightest of spaces. In the Enclave, you will find other available safety features, such as Forward Collision Alert and Front Pedestrian Braking, but they do not come standard in all trim levels.
Only the QX60 has the INFINITI Safety Shield® Philosophy, which provides layers of protection for you and your passengers. This outer layer includes available technologies to help you avoid an accident, while the inner layer helps to protect you if one does occur.
