2018 INFINITI Q60 VS. 2018 ACURA ILX | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown


The 2018 Acura ILX has an engine which is rev-happy with an outstanding transmission and host of luxury and safety features. The 2018 INFINITI Q60 is a real beauty, with a top of the line interior, world-class Bose sound system, and incredible acceleration when moving forward. Which of these should you buy?

Design & Style

The INFINITI Q60 has external accents which are subtle yet elegant. It has the classical shape of a coupe, which has been enhanced through an additional glass and a roof pillar in the rear that is kinked and capable of doubling back when needed. Its rear comes in the form of a decklid which has been shortened. With the Acura ILX, the beak fascia in the front which is common among previous models has been toned down. Those who purchase the A-Spec package will get an ILX that has a small spoiler on the trunk which gives it a sporty appearance. Inside you will find that most controls and switches are centrally located.

Technology & Safety

The Acura ILX incorporates a number of advanced features such as sound deadening, which gives passengers an experience which is refined. The seats are made from synthetic leather, with driver power seats and a moonroof. The ILX has been subject to both independent and federal safety tests and has done well on them. The INFINITI Q60 is extremely comfortable, especially in the front seats which can be adjusted extensively. It also has monitors for blind spots, speaker grilles with an intricate finish and touchscreens. In terms of safety, the Q60 has a wide assortment of features, including a camera in the rear view, rollover airbags, and control systems for stability and traction.


The INFINITI Q60 comes equipped with a standard turbo 4, two-liter engine that can produce up to 208 horsepower with 258 pounds of torque. It can also be upgraded to a V6 with 300 or 400 horsepower, which will allow it to go from zero sixty in about five seconds. Its engine is connected to a seven-speed automatic. The Acura ILX uses an inline 4 engine, which can produce up to 200 horsepower, meaning that the base model is evenly matched with the standard Q60 on paper. However, its engine and transmission are connected with a chassis that prioritizes comfort over acceleration and handling.

The Bottom Line

The Acura ILX and INFINITI Q60 have a number of similarities. They are easy on the eyes, packed with lots of safety and comfort features, and offer respectable performance. However, compared to the Q60, the interior of the ILX just isn’t classy enough, and because it is based on a previous Honda Civic design (space was ultimately compromised), so the INFINITI definitely has an edge over the Honda.
