2018 INFINITI Q60 VS. 2018 MERCEDES-BENZ CLA 250 | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown


The new Mercedes-Benz 2018 CLA 250 is a powerful, dynamic vehicle with a bold style. It offers a great combination of luxury and performance and will appeal to many drivers. However, the INFINITI 2018 Q60 is a real force to be reckoned with. Its sleek exterior combined with its elegant interior and handling will make it tough for buyers to choose, but below is a comparison that will make the choice easier.

Design & Style

Both of these cars look good and will capture the attention (and envy) of many of those who see them. One look at either the Q60 or CLA 250 makes it apparent that both are designed for sophisticated drivers with deep pockets. The CLA features an eight-inch touchscreen with a panorama roof, while the INFINITI Q60 is also packed with similar features. However, the Mercedes CLA 250 seats a maximum of five passengers while the Q60 is limited to just 4, so this is a strike against it.

Technology & Safety

In terms of technology and safety, the two vehicles appear matched, at least on the surface. However, the Mercedes CLA 250 lacks basic features such as fog lamps, which will be an issue for drivers who frequently find themselves driving through the foggy weather. Other than that, both vehicles are equipped with a lumbar that is driver adjusted, automatic headlights, satellite radio, keyless entry, and a climate control system.


Both the INFINITI Q60 and Mercedes CLA 250 are powered by a turbo premium unleaded intercooled I-4 engine. The displacement is identical, and both cars incorporate a direct injection gasoline system. The horsepower and torque are also identical, so when it comes to handling and performance the cars are evenly matched.

The Bottom Line

In terms of price, the INFINITI Q60 is considerably more expensive than the Mercedes CLA, at almost $50,000 versus $38,000. For many this will seal the choice, prompting them to buy the Mercedes, but there are other factors that should be considered. Although the two vehicles are well matched in a number of ways, the INFINITI has a clear advantage in interior amenities.

It costs more because it offers features such as A/C which is multi-zone, a state of the art security system, and unlike the Mercedes, it has AM/FM stereo support. Throw in the powered windows, MP3 player support and engine immobilizer, to name a few, and it is easy to see why the Q60 costs more, and this is because it offers more, so this is the vehicle we recommend when you are seeking the best luxury features in your ride.
