The 2018 BMW M4 and the 2018 INFINITI Q60 are sporty, dynamic and stylish vehicles which will impress all those who see them, and especially those who are fortunate enough to drive them. They incorporate an array of state of the art features with maximum performance, making it tough for buyers to choose one, but a side by side analysis will make the choice clearer.
Design & Style
Both cars offer an array of exterior colors and trim for the interior, as well as various seating options. The BMW M4 showcases itself as a true performance car and will be a joy to ride both on tracks and winding roads. The INFINITI Q60, on the other hand, is an ultra-luxurious coupe that simultaneously offers tremendous performance with looks that will create envy in neighbors and co-workers. Thus, it is hard to pick a clear winner in the style department, as the two cars are tied.
Technology & Safety
The INFINITI Q60 has better fuel economy, at 22 miles to the gallon versus 17 for the BMW M4. The two are practically tied in terms of passenger space, as the INFINITI offers more space in certain areas whereas the BMW offers greater space in others. Both cars hold a total of four people, with the BMW providing more cargo space at 11 feet versus only 8.7 for the Q60. Each vehicle incorporates a 4 wheel drive system, along with disc front brakes.
The INFINITI Q60 has a higher fuel tank capacity at twenty gallons versus only 16 for the BMW M4. Both cars utilize rack pinion steering, and the INFINITI is slightly heavier at 3,727 pounds versus 3,530 pounds for the BMW M4. The BMW uses a Premium Unleaded Twin Turbo I-6 engine with 425 horsepower at 5500 rpm, while the INFINITI Q60 is limited to an Intercooled Premium Unleaded Turbo I-4 engine at 208 horsepower at 5000 RPM. This indicates a significant performance difference between the two vehicles.
The Bottom Line
While the BMW M4 outclasses the INFINITI Q60 in terms of performance, this is largely due to its price tag, which is almost twice as high as the Q60. While buyers can get their hands on the INFINITI for just over $36,000, they’d have to shell out over $63,000 for the BMW, a difference of almost $30,000, which is enough to buy a brand new car. Furthermore, the BMW’s enhanced performance comes at the expense of its luxury features. Put another way, the INFINITI weighs more because it offers more comfort to drivers. So for those who prefer luxury and affordability over performance, the INFINITI Q60 is the better choice.
