2018 INFINITI QX60 VS. 2018 LAND ROVER DISCOVERY | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown


Both INFINITI and Land Rover are highly regarded for their SUVs, and as such, many anticipate the release of the 2018 Land Rover Discovery and 2018 INFINITI QX60. Both vehicles offer stellar performance combined with a decadently comfortable interior and cutting edge infotainment. Continue reading to find out which one offers the bigger bang for your buck.

Design & Style 

The QX60 has an interior which is very classy. While its exterior has elegant curves, the Land Rover Discovery by contrast is more angular, yet no less impressive. It is difficult to pick a winner when it comes to style, as the designers at both Land Rover and INFINITI know what they’re doing.

Technology & Safety

The Land Rover Discovery has been criticized for its infotainment features, which lags behind that of the QX60. However, the optional packages offered by the INFINITI are not as extensive as they could be. The QX60 does have better fuel economy, at 20 mpg versus 16 mpg for the Land Rover Discovery. Another major difference between these two vehicles is in the seating capacity. While the Land Rover Discovery carries a maximum of five passengers, the INFINITI QX60 can carry 7, which is a significant difference. The INFINITI also has an edge in overall interior space. Both vehicles incorporate a 4 wheel ABS system, yet the Land Rover Discovery has a greater capacity in its fuel tank, at 23.5 gallons versus only 19 for the QX60.


The Land Rover has a much higher capacity for trailering, at 8201 pounds versus only 5000 pounds for the INFINITI. Both SUVs come equipped with rack pinion steering and aluminum wheels, yet the Land Rover surpass the INFINITI when it comes to the power of its engine, at 340 horsepower at 6500 rpm versus 295 horsepower at 6400 rpm. This explains the Land Rover’s greater trailering capacity, since it uses an Intercooled Premium engine which is supercharged, while the INFINITI uses a V6 Premium Unleaded.

The Bottom Line

Each SUV has its advantages and disadvantages. While the Land Rover Discovery shines with its powerful engine, trailering capacity, and automatic eight speeds, the INFINITI QX60 excels with its more spacious interior, greater seating capacity, and superior infotainment. The Land Rover costs more, however, this is largely due to the performance of its engine. When you consider the fact that most people don’t buy SUVs purely for performance, this is a problem for the Land Rover, as it has inferior seating capacity, interior space, and infotainment, which means that for most car shoppers, the INFINITI QX60 is the better bet.
