The 2020 INFINITI Q60 combines a commanding presence with an interior that is well-appointed and engine power that is substantial. But how does it compare to the 2020 Volvo S60, a classy car that is notable for its smooth yet potent powertrains, all-wheel drive and world-class cabin?
Design & Style
The Volvo S60 is a four-door that comes in 3 different trims, which are R-Design, Momentum and Inscription. In front, it shares a number of similarities with the larger S90 sedan but maintains its own distinction with its extended wheelbase, hammer style headlights and maw grille. The cabin is a real pleasure to sit in, due to its digital screens, light leather surfaces and essential controls which are easy to access. The INFINITI Q60 also comes in 3 trims, which are Red Sport, Luxe and Pure. They all look great, as the vehicle has been updated with open glass that produces an airier cabin with greater outward vision. Its long and sharp frame sits on sexy nineteen-inch wheels and the cabin is full of elegant materials and electronic touchscreens that are well organized.
Technology & Safety
The INFINITI Q60 is rich in safety tech, which allows the driver and passengers to use the vehicle with peace of mind. They will be protected by Active Trace Control, numerous airbags, headlights that are adaptive, lane departure notifications, rear collision alerts, a camera with surround view, emergency automated brakes and the ability to monitor blind areas. Perks within the cabin include 2 USB ports, Bluetooth, and seats that can be power adjusted 8 ways with keyless ignition. The Volvo S60 has received good safety scores via the IIHS overall, but its headlights were described as being “Marginal” which cost it the prestigious Top Safety Pick award. That being said, it has many of the same safety features as the Q60, including driver-assist, blind area monitoring and lane control, and its cabin perks include heated/cooled seats, a sunroof, satellite radio, Android Auto or Apple CarPlay and an audio system from Harman Kardon.
Volvo has built a reputation for performance and speed, and in the S60 it shows. The car comes with a turbo 4, 2-liter engine that can produce up to 250 horsepower. The INFINITI Q60 comes with a V6, 3-liter engine that can produce 300 horsepower with 295 pounds of torque.
The Bottom Line
The INFINITI Q60 outclasses the Volvo for a number of reasons. Aside from the fact that the S60 has inferior performance and headlights, those who have test driven it have also complained about the steering, which they reported lacks feedback.
