2018 INFINITI Q60 VS. 2018 LEXUS LC 500 | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown

2018 INFINITI Q60 VS. 2018 LEXUS LC 500

INFINITI launched the 2018 Q60 with considerable press coverage, touting its many impressive features and performance. Lexus has continued tweaking its lineup, culminating in the release of the 2018 LC 500, which is highly anticipated by many. Those looking to buy a new coupe this year may be wondering which car offers the best value for their money? Continue reading to find out.

Design & Style

Each vehicle offers a very sleek, futuristic interior. However, the Lexus LC 500 is in a class of its own. This vehicle looks simply amazing, with sharp, powerful edges which convey a sense of power, speed, and predatory maneuvering. While the Q60 is without a doubt a great looking vehicle, in terms of looks, the LC500 has an edge here.

Technology & Safety

The INFINITI Q60 sports a seven-speed automatic while the Lexus LC 500 has a ten speed automatic. The INFINITI Q60, however, is superior when it comes to fuel economy, at 21 mpg versus a paltry 16 mpg for the Lexus. Both vehicles are tied when it comes to interior comfort, as each features power door locks, air conditioning, power windows, sun/moon roofs, and power seats as standard features. They also seat the same number of passengers, which is a maximum of four people. However, despite this, the INFINITI Q60 has a slight advantage in front seat space, offering greater leg room.


Both the Lexus LC 500 and INFINITI Q60 are equal when it comes to their safety features, with passenger, driver and side airbags, along with ABS brakes being standard. Both have also performed well in safety tests. Each features a gasoline-based engine yet the Lexus LC 500 is considerably more powerful, at 471 horsepowers @ 7500 rpm versus only 208 horsepower @ 5500 rpm for the INFINITI Q60. The Lexus also has eight cylinders whereas the INFINITI is limited to four.

The Bottom Line

The INFINITI Q60 and Lexus LC 500 are evenly matched in almost every area, except performance. For those who want maximum performance irrespective of price, the Lexus may seem like the better package, but for those who do not prioritize performance, the INFINITI Q60 is – without question – the better buy.
