2018 INFINITI Q60 vs. 2018 Mazda 6 | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown

2018 INFINITI Q60 vs. 2018 Mazda 6

The 2018 Mazda 6 is gorgeous, offers outstanding value and performance and has extensive safety gear. But how does it match up against the INFINITI Q60, with its top of the line shelf interior, lovely shape, and superb straight line acceleration?

Design & Style

The Q60 has a fresh shape, with chrome surrounds in front that encapsulate the fog lights. The back of the car features a decklid that is punctuated via the lip spoiler which sits near the company logo. The tires in the rear have also been widened with exhausts that are dual outboard. Inside the cabin is spacious and inviting with premium material that covers every surface and which has been stitched to perfection. The Mazda 6 is also pleasing to the eyes, with its three box styling. It has alloy wheels which are 17 inches, LED lighting and Soul Red style paint. Within the interior the controls are placed beneath the vents for climate control with a dash that has been lowered. Those who choose the Grand Touring trim will get black headliners with nappa leather and authentic wood trim.

Technology & Safety

The Mazda 6 has outstanding grades when it comes to safety. Both the IIHS and NHTSA have given in favorable marks, largely due to features such as emergency automatic brakes, and cruise and lane control. It will also protect passengers in the event of rollovers, and within the interior, additional perks that buyers can look forward to include eight inch touchscreens, Bluetooth support, and an audio system with 6 speakers, USB ports and climate control which is dual zone. The INFINITI Q60 also offers substantial protection. Its standard safety mechanisms consist of rollover airbags, a camera for the rearview, controls for stability and traction, and a special feature called Active Trace, which allows it to brake imperceptibly near corners to maintain a line which is tighter. Inside, passengers will be treated to keyless ignition, touchscreens, Bluetooth support, leather seating, a moon roof and stereo system by Bose.


The Q60 has superb engines, making it one of the top performing coupes on the market today. It comes with a standard turbo 4, 2 liter engine, which provides 208 horsepower with 258 pound of torque, but can be upgraded to the Red Sport edition which provides up to 400 horsepower. The Mazda 6 comes with an inline 4, 2.5 liter engine that provides up to 187 horsepower with 186 pound of torque, and the Grand Touring version provides a turbo 4 with a maximum of 250 horsepower when one uses premium gasoline.

The Bottom Line

The Mazda 6 and INFINITI Q60 are impressive vehicles which bring a lot of the table. Unfortunately, the infotainment system housed within the Mazda is terrible compared to the INFINITI, and the trim leaves a lot to be desired. Furthermore, the INFINITI is much more fuel efficient, so the Q60 is a better choice here.
