2018 INFINITI Q60 VS. 2018 CHEVROLET IMPALA | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown

2018 INFINITI Q60 vs. 2018 Chevrolet Impala

The 2018 INFINITI Q60 has received praise for its acceleration, luxurious interior and exceptional sound system. However, Chevrolet has responded with the release of the 2018 Chevrolet Impala, which has also received acclaim for its sharp looks, superb infotainment and outstanding drive quality. Which of them should you buy?

Design & Style

The newest edition of the Impala has been substantially reworked. It is much more sleek and sculpted than its predecessors, with an assortment of panels in the exterior that merge crisp lines with eye catching shapes. The grille in particular is handsome, as is the racy roofline and creases which are pressed smartly. The INFINITI Q60 is also stunning, with its miniature decklid, lip spoiler and satin chrome outside. The interior is what you would expect from such a prestigious brand, which every surface being covered in upmarket materials.

Technology & Safety

The Q60 utilizes state of the art technology to ensure passengers are protected at all times. One such example is Direct Adaptive Steering, which consists of lane and cruise control combined with high beams that are automated. Inside, passengers will be comforted by soft leather, Bluetooth support, a camera for the rearview, dual touchscreens, keyless ignition and a Bose sound system. The Chevy Impala has done well with the NHTSA, receiving a Good rating for most tests, with a five star grade overall. In particular, its rollover protection is extremely advanced, and other safety measures include blind zone monitoring, notifications when departing lanes, control for stability and traction and frontal collision alerts. Within the cabin, passengers will be treated to eight inch touchscreens, air conditioning, seating that can be power adjusted, Bose audio, a sunroof and ability to charge smartphones.


The Impala comes with a standard inline 4, 2.5 liter engine, but can be upgraded to a V6 which is 3.6 liter. Base models produce 196 horsepower, and their engines are capable of canceling noise. The V6 variant produces 305 horsepower, and can accelerate from zero to sixty in about 7 seconds. The INFINITI Q60 comes with a turbo 4, 2 liter engine for standard models, but can be upgraded to a V6 which is twin turbo and capable of producing a whopping 400 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

Both of these vehicles are lovely to look at, fun to pilot and offer exceptional performance and amenities. However, the Chevy Impala lacks a hybrid powertrain, its cabin is much too busy, and the lack of head room in the back seat might be a problem for taller passengers, so the INFINITI Q60 wins.
