Don’t You Dare Look at Another SUV

The 2022 INFINITI QX60 embodies everything that moves you and presents it in SUV form. Offering timeless style, superior connectivity, and a state of the art cabin experience, there’s no other SUV that should ever cross your mind. Still and yet, the 2022 Acura MDX swears it can hold its own against the INFINITI. Dive in with us as we put these two SUVs against one another and see which one reigns supreme. If you simply can’t wait to get behind the wheel of the champ, make your way down to South Motors INFINITI and get behind the wheel of the 2022 QX60.

Power and Performance that Outdoes the Stiffest Competition

Ensuring that power is always on tap, the 2021 INFINITI QX60 offers power from a 3.5-liter V6 engine that delivers 290 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. Driving power to the front wheels through a 9-speed automatic transmission sourced from the renowned ZF, performance is invigorating and lively.

Move over to the 2022 Acura MDX and you’ll find an eerily similar displacement and power rating, yet the 2022 MDX still falls short. Generating 290 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque, and sending power through a 10-speed automatic transmission, performance should be on par with the 2022 QX60 right? Wrong. Though similar on paper, when it comes to real world driving performance, there simply is no comparison.

In addition to the 2022 Acura MDX’s fuel economy remaining mediocre at an EPA estimated 26 MPG on the highway, it can only tow up to 5,000lbs– that’s 1,000lbs less than the 2022 QX60.

Simply Excellent Outside and In

The 2022 INFINITI QX60 embodies style and sophistication, taking cues from the Monogram Concept. Effortlessly incorporating forward styling that employs an oversized origami inspired grille and sleek LED headlights with kimono folds, the 2022 QX60 gets more attractive the longer you stare at it. Add in available 20-inch wheels and you simply can’t turn away. Though it evokes emotion with its folds and creases, the 2022 QX60 remains sophisticated, never appearing as if its trying too hard.

Climb aboard and you’ll find an array of first class features, like diamond stitched semi-aniline leather and authentic open-pore wood trim. The three-row SUV features available second row power adjustable captains chairs for total comfort. Pleasantries like tri zone automatic climate control, and available climate controlled front seats spoil front passengers while letting you take advantage of up to 75.4 cubic feet of cargo space. When it comes to tech, you’ll love the intuitive 12.3 inch touchscreen infotainment system along with the available 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster that provides customizable readouts of vitals and other information in a brilliant show. The available 10.8 inch head up display is not only highly intuitive, but incredibly helpful at providing the information you need without forcing you to take your eyes off the road.

The same praises cannot be said about the 2022 Acura MDX. Though it also employs similar styling cues as the INFINITI, like sleek LED headlights, and a bold, oversized grille, it is not nearly as sophisticated. Featuring an abundance of character lines and creases, along with the use of “in your face” color choices, the 2022 Acura MDX clearly tries too hard.

Inside the 2022 MDX, you’ll witness a modern approach that, once again, clearly tries hard. Though black leather seats attempt to draw more sophisticated drivers, the available bright red seats kill the chances of the Acura earning an award for sophistication. In the tech department, rather than offering an intuitive interface, the 2021 MDX falls short, employing a True Touchpad controller. Not only does the system employ a steep learning curve, the system is all but intuitive, forcing drivers to focus to get tasks done; not the best thing to do while you’re driving and trying to do things like command media, or adjust settings.

Safety You Can Count On

The 2022 INFINITI QX60 brings an impressive list of driver assist and safety features, including automatic emergency braking to prevent frontal collisions and Blind Spot Intervention, which not only uses radar technology to scan your sides for obstacles while you drive but actively intervenes should you wish to change lanes. Make an attempt while your path is obstructed and the system will provide an alert and steering assistance to avoid a collision.

The 2022 Acura employs its own list of safety and driver assist features like automatic emergency braking and lane change alert, yet peace of mind comes complete in the INFINITI thanks to intuitive features like the available Enhanced Smart Rearview Mirror that gives you a live feed of what’s behind via live camera feed instead of forcing you to look over to two rear rows.
