2018 INFINITI Q60 vs. 2018 Lincoln Continental

The 2018 Lincoln Continental and 2018 INFINITI Q60 are both outstanding automobiles which have received praise from industry insiders. The Q60 is noted for its stunning looks and Bose sound system, while the Lincoln Continental has a cockpit which is glamorous with incredible performance, demonstrating that American luxury cars can compete and surpass their European and Japanese counterparts. Which of these two is the best?

Design & Style

The newest Continental has a shape which is both glitzy and subdued.  It has a mesh grille; door handles which are high mount and fender vents, with an appearance that commands respect. The cockpit in particular really stands out, with the artsy typeface and screen gauges which are black in color. The INFINITI Q60 is a real head turner, the type of car you want to drive when you want attention, and a little bit of envy. It is rich in chrome that surrounds key areas of the frame, with a classical coupe shape that is further enhanced by the addition of greater glass and a roof rear pillar that is kinked.

Technology & Safety

INFINITI takes the safety of its cars seriously, which means the Q60 is equipped with the latest safety mechanisms. This includes rollover airbags, side airbags, a camera in the rear view, and control systems for stability and traction. It also has emergency automatic breaks, LED lights, seats with synthetic leather, and connectivity for Bluetooth. The Lincoln Continental has scored well on crash tests, and has received praise from the NHTSA and IIHS. It would be well matched with the Q60 if it weren’t for the lack of key features such as warnings for forward collisions, as well as emergency automatic brakes, which are only currently available in the Black Label and Reserve editions. It does have a rear view camera, blind spot monitoring, and infotainment.

Performance

The performance of the Lincoln Continental is formidable. It comes with a standard V6 3.7 liter engine that is capable of producing up to 305 horsepower. Power is shuffled around via a six speed automatic. The INFINITI Q60 comes with a turbo 4 2 liter engine that can produce up to 208 horsepower with 258 pound of torque. The Red Sport edition has a V6 like the Continental but can produce around 400 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

The INFINITI Q60 and Lincoln Continental are well matched in a number of key areas. However, the Lincoln Continental lags behind a bit in safety and technological features, which is exacerbated by the fact that it carries a higher price tag without offering enough to justify it. Therefore, the INFINITI Q60 wins.
