2018 INFINITI QX60 VS. 2018 AUDI Q7 | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown

2018 INFINITI QX60 VS. 2018 AUDI Q7

The 2018 Audi Q7 is a technological marvel with an interior that is comfortable, offers a sublime driving experience, and comes with detailed design. The 2018 INFINITI QX60 is classy both inside and out, with a second interior row that is roomy with gadgetry that is state of the arts. Below is a detailed comparison between the two, highlighting which is better.

Design & Style

The Audi Q7 reinforces the consistency which German cars have become known for. It is well balanced, with an exterior that is crisp, so much so… that some find it rather bland. However, it is the interior of the Q7 that really shines, with an outstanding wood finish, elegant leather upholstery, and lots of customization options. The INFINITI QX60, on the other hand, surpasses the Audi Q7 on the outside and rivals it on the inside. It has a grille in front that is puckered, with chrome accents which give it just the right touch. A kickback which is crescent shape can be seen on the side, making it resemble a sedan even though it’s an SUV. The inside of the QX60 features top of the line materials, such as matte leather and accented wood.

Technology & Safety

The Audi Q7 comes complete with an infotainment system which has seven-inch screens, Apple CarPlay, rear seats which are heated, and even a heated steering wheel. One of its nice features is MMI Navigation, which allows it to communicate with nearby infrastructure. The technology is in its early stages but is related to self-driving automobiles. The INFINITI QX60 also has heated seats, along with keyless ignition, a camera for the rear view, Bluetooth connections, and touch screens which are slightly larger than the Audi. Safety wise, both vehicles have systems for stability control, lots of airbags and traction mechanisms, making them evenly matched.


The Audi Q7 uses lots of aluminum so it doesn’t weigh much compared to other SUVs, at around 5,000 pounds. This gives it a driving experience which is both responsive and agile. It comes with a standard turbo 4 two-liter engine that produces up to 252 horsepower with 273 pounds of torque, which allows it to go from zero to sixty in just over seven seconds. The INFINITI QX60, however, has a slight advantage, with a V6 engine that is 3.5 liter and which is capable of producing 295 horsepower with an automatic transmission that is continuously variable.

The Bottom Line

While both these vehicles are world class, many car buyers still manage to point out major flaws with the Audi car. This is because Audi Q7 has a third row which is too tight, an insufficient four-cylinder engine, and many of its most advanced features are only available with expensive upgrades, so the INFINITI QX60 is the winner when you consider the luxury package you can get, even with the standard variation.
