2018 INFINITI Q60 vs. 2018 Volkswagen Arteon | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown

2018 INFINITI Q60 vs. 2018 Volkswagen Arteon

The 2018 Volkswagen Arteon has been described as an evolution in coupes. Its outstanding looks and performance are testament to the exceptional workmanship which was put into its manufacture. However, how does it stack up against the 2018 INFINITI Q60, a car praised for its beautiful exterior, refined interior and superb straight line acceleration?

Design & Style

The INFINITI Q60 is gorgeous in a subtle way, largely due to the accents in its exterior. The fog lights in front are surrounded by chrome, and the sides are refined by the pillar at the rear of the roof which is kinked. A decklid which has been shortened can be seen in the back, which is attached to the lip spoiler. Inside, the cabin is spacious and relaxing, ensuring that passengers will be transported in comfort. The Volkswagen Arteon features a grille with six blades which are connected to LED lights which are slim yet dominant in the front of the vehicle, pronouncing its width. Within the cabin the trim is high end, with an assortment of tech designed to give drivers maximum control.

Technology & Safety

The INFINITI Q60 comes with standard rollover airbags, a camera for the rearview, and control for stability and traction. Its Active Trace system ensures that the brakes and wheels perform seamlessly when moving around corners so that a tighter line is maintained. Additional countermeasures include blind spot awareness, notifications for rear impacts, and emergency automatic brakes. Within the cabin, additional comforts which have been added include keyless ignition, Bluetooth support, multiple touchscreens, and a powered sunroof and Bose sound system.

The Arteon, like previous Volkswagen models, has outstanding safety features. Aside from the standard airbags and emergency brakes, it has multiple cameras and warnings for blind spots. The cockpit is completely digital, showcasing TFT screens along with a display that is heads-up.


The Volkswagen Arteon has decent driving mechanics, and this is due to its usage of the MQB modular architecture, which gives it a platform that is dynamic and light in weight. It has an inline 4 engine which is turbocharged, and can produce between 188 and 276 horsepower depending on the variant. It also has all-wheel drive, front wheel drive and 4MOTION. The INFINITI Q60, however, is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to handling, acceleration and power. Its standard engine is a turbo 4 which is 2 liter, which produces 208 horsepower with 258 pound of torque, but the Red Sport edition offers a mammoth 400 horsepower due to its V6 engine.

The Bottom Line

Both of these vehicles look great and are fun to drive, so choosing between them is no easy task. While they are well matched in multiple areas, the Q60 still comes out on top when comes to performance, so the INFINITI wins.
