2019 INFINITI QX60 vs 2019 Acura MDX

Serving Maple Shade, NJ

As entries in an extremely competitive market, the 2019 INFINITI QX60 and the 2019 Acura MDX manage to stand out with their bevy of standard tech features and an eye for high-level premium quality and comfortability. Indeed, for the 2019 model year, neither nameplate rests on its laurels. INFINITI renamed the QX60 trim levels and introduced more standard features, and Acura brought in an A-Spec package and made minor changes to the transmission and engine stop-start system on the MDX. As fine as both of these vehicles are, you should choose the 2019 QX60 over the 2019 MDX due to the following:


The 2019 INFINITI QX60 and the 2019 Acura MDX are appropriately armed with a 3.5-liter V6 to provide remarkable acceleration ability. You will never have to worry about merging into the highway or switching lanes in time. However, on the MDX, the V6 produces 290 horsepower and 257 lb-ft of torque, while the one on the QX60 generates 295 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. Thus, the INFINITI SUV produces 5 more horsepower and 13 more lb-ft of torque than its Acura counterpart. Also, while the MDX mates its engine to a 9-speed automatic transmission, the QX60 goes with a continuously variable transmission, or CVT, which provides a smoother ride than traditional gearboxes because it does not use gear shifting.

Seating Accommodation

The 2019 INFINITI QX60 and the 2019 Acura MDX are part of a growing number of midsize SUVs with three rows of seats instead of the standard two. The QX60 is designed as a three-row vehicle that can seat up to seven people, which is mainly due to having a second-row bench-style seat. On the MDX, however, you are assured of a seven-seater unless you go with the upper-level Advance trim, which replaces the bench-style seat in the second row with a pair of captain’s chairs to reduce maximum occupancy to six.

Interior Space

Although both the 2019 INFINITI QX60 and the 2019 Acura MDX are three-row vehicles, they differ in the amount of interior space they supply. On the QX60, you can expect a passenger volume of 133 cubic feet, as well as a 16 cubic feet of standard cargo volume (which is measured from the third-row seat to the liftgate). On the MDX, the most passenger volume you would get is 132.7 cubic feet (0.3 less cubic feet), and standard cargo volume is measured at 15 cubic feet (1 less cubic feet).
