The 2019 INFINITI QX60 is a remarkable machine that has received praise for its standout style, an array of safety countermeasures, and composed driving experience. But it faces a true rival in the 2019 Cadillac XT4, an American made SUV which has a gorgeous exterior, highly efficient fuel economy, lots of comforts inside and a formidable engine. Which one wins?
Design & Style
The Cadillac XT4 is sold in three trims, which are Sport, Premium Luxury and Luxury. It has LED lights that can operate during the day, with a broad grille and metal that is creased. The metal along the side is pinched and extends down the flanks in a manner that is elegant, with overhangs that have been shortened to enhance its appearance further. Inside, the cabin uses accents made of wood and carbon. The INFINITI QX60 has 3 rows for passenger seating, which are covered in leather soothing to the skin and other surfaces made of natural wood and metal. The exterior is defined by extended chrome strips that give it a graceful, crescent appearance with a tailgate that is complete with a gradual curve.
Technology & Safety
The QX60 has been given a five-star safety rating, due to the presence of many safety countermeasures under the hood. These include protection against rollover, driver assist, numerous airbags, blind area monitoring and control over stability. It also has a suite that can alleviate fatigue in drivers that need to travel long distances. Additional comforts include infotainment with eight-inch touchscreens, a steering wheel that can be heated, sunroof with dual panes, heated/cool seats, and a power liftgate. The Cadillac XT4 also does an outstanding job of protecting its passengers, with 8 airbags, a camera for the rearview, blind area monitoring, and a control system for traction. It also has reverse automated brakes, parking assistance and headlights which operate automatically, and passengers will be treated to perks such as infotainment screens, USB support, climate control which is dual-zone, Android Auto, and seats that can be power adjusted in many ways.
The Cadillac XT4 is one of the top-performing SUVs in its class. It has a turbo 4 engine that is 2 liter and wedded to an automatic nine-speed transmission. It can produce 237 horsepower with 258 pounds of torque. The INFINITI QX60 comes with a V6; the 3.5-liter engine can produce 295 horsepower and works in conjunction with a CVT, or continuously variable transmission.
The Bottom Line
Visually, both of these SUVs are fabulous and are almost tied when it comes to safety features and interior comforts. However, the INFINITI QX60 has a significant performance edge, which makes it the winner.
