2018 INFINITI QX60 VS. 2018 BMW X4 | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown

2018 INFINITI QX60 VS. 2018 BMW X4

The 2018 INFINITI QX60 is an impressive SUV with its classy cabin, excellent equipment, performance and space. But how does it compare to the 2018 BMW X4, an SUV praised for its handling, trim and automatic eight-speed transmission?

Design & Style

The BMW X4 is distinctive with its sloping roof-line and fenders. It has twenty-inch wheels, a sporty exterior, and an interior which is upmarket. Passengers can expect exotic upholstery options such as white style Nevada leather, and although the crossover resembles other BMWs, it is still unique. On the other hand, the first thing you’ll notice on the INFINITI QX60 is the puckered grille. It gives the SUV a refined look, especially when combined with the chrome accents and headlights. A kickback which is crescent-shaped is visible along the sides, and within the cabin, every surface is covered in top quality materials.

Technology & Safety

The INFINITI QX60 is highly regarded when it comes to protecting its passengers. It has been given a five-star rating from safety regulators due to its systems for control and traction, airbags, surround and rearview cameras, and protection against rollovers and frontal impacts. In the cabin, passengers will also enjoy amenities such as eight-inch infotainment screens, heated seats, Bluetooth support, and a power liftgate.
The BMW X4 is also well equipped for passenger protection. It has dual-stage airbags in front, along with a camera for the rearview, control systems for traction and stability, and the ability to detect injuries and provide notifications in the event a crash occurs. The cabin of the BMW X4 will also pamper passengers with its 6.5-inch touch screens (smaller than the ones found in the QX60), Bluetooth connectivity and soothing leather upholstery.


The X4 continues BMW’s tradition of providing outstanding performance to drivers. Standard models come with a turbo 4 engine that can produce a respectable 240 horsepower with 260 pounds of torque. However, it was not designed for off-road adventures. The INFINITI QX60 is powered by a V6, 3.5-liter engine that produces 295 horsepower, which is used in conjunction with a CVT or transmission that is continuously variable. For regions that receive cold weather during winter, the QX60 can be equipped with all-wheel drive to the best choice with inclement weather conditions.

The Bottom Line

Choosing between the INFINITI QX60 and BMW X4 is no simple task. Both SUVs are gorgeous, with upscale interiors and superlative handling. However, many consider the BMW X4 overpriced, especially when you consider the obscenely high cost of Apple CarPlay and the fact that the headroom in the back seat has been seriously compromised. That is why many car buyers prefer the QX60 over the X4.
