2018 INFINITI Q60 VS. 2018 TESLA MODEL S | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown


The 2018 INFINITI Q60 is a gorgeous vehicle with an interior that is top shelf with an amazing Bose sound system. Tesla, although a newcomer to the luxury automobile market, demonstrates exceptional craftsmanship with the Model S, offering outstanding acceleration, an interior that is quiet, and a network that is supercharged. Which of the two is superior? Check this comparison out now!

Design & Style

The INFINITI Q60 is a coupe with two doors, yet offers generous amounts of space. The touch screens in the interior are high in quality and come with lots of fantastic features. The exterior of the car features subtle accents which are attractive, giving it a well-balanced proportion. The Tesla Model S has a fastback look that is sleek and low but comes with minimal changes in comparison to previous editions. It is a sedan designed for comfort, and it does this well with door handles made of chrome which can extend when needed as the driver enters, retracting once the car begins moving.

Technology & Safety

The INFINITI Q60 comes with a lot of safety equipment, such as airbags for rollovers, airbags for every passenger, and a camera in the rearview. It also has sensors for blind spots, a warning for rear collisions and emergency brakes. Throw in the cruise control system which is adaptive, a warning for lane departures and adaptive steering which is direct, and the Q60 is one of the safest coupes available on the market today. The Tesla Model S has also earned stellar safety ratings overall, but the Autopilot system it utilizes actually requires passengers to watch what they’re doing, more so than in the past. Additionally, the Tesla Model S only earned an “Acceptable” rating for front overlap tests, which is not very thrilling – given its high price tag.


The INFINITI Q60 is a real beast when it comes to performance, especially in the Red Sports edition, which comes equipped with a V6 engine that can produce 400 horsepower. The standard model uses a turbo 4 two-liter engine, which is still impressive nonetheless. The Tesla Model S is an electric car but still formidable in its own right, with a motor that is 193 kilowatts (or 259 horsepower) with multiple electric control mechanisms. It can go from zero to sixty quickly but is still sluggish compared to the INFINITI Q60.

The Bottom Line

Both of these cars are well designed and will provide a wonderful driving experience to anyone fortunate enough to own them. However, Tesla has some work to do if they want to match the bar set by INFINITI. The cabin of the Model S is rather stark, its top variants are overly expensive, and it doesn’t provide the same level of performance as the INFINITI, making the Q60 the easy winner here.
