Do 2016 Infiniti QX60 FWD Standard Features Compare to an Acura?

September 20th, 2016 by

2017 Acura MDXAs a luxury crossover, the 2016 Infiniti QX60 FWD standard features give it an advantage over a typical family SUV or minivan, but is that enough for it to compete with other luxury vehicles? Chicagoland drivers have a wide range of luxury cars and crossovers available to them, and you should weigh all of your options before deciding to settle on a vehicle like the Infiniti. We compared the QX60 to the 2017 Acura MDX to give you an idea of what we think Chicago drivers deserve in their luxury crossovers; read on to see the differences in detail.

Acura’s Advantages

Not all drivers are going to want the same things out of a crossover, but we’ve found that many have some similar expectations: namely that a luxury crossover should have the latest in comfort, technology, and safety features. We saved you the struggle of squinting at the 2016 Infiniti QX60 FWD standard features and comparing them to the long list of MDX amenities.

You’ll find each of these features as standard on the 2017 MDX, but Infiniti would have you upgrade for them (if they are available at all):

  • Driver-side memory adjustments for seat position, mirrors, steering wheel, and more
  • Voice-activated controls for technology features
  • AcuraLink Next Generation telematics
  • Noise/sound cancellation
  • Perimeter exterior lighting
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Collision Mitigation Braking
  • Lane Departure Warning

We wanted to give a bit more attention to one feature that we think drivers expect from a crossover: a third row. Unlike many luxury crossovers, the MDX has seating for up to seven passengers as standard; Infiniti would have drivers upgrade for that third row.

The MDX isn’t just a tough competitor for the 2016 Infiniti QX60 FWD standard features; it leaves quite a few competing crossovers looking plain and unimpressive—see for yourself with our direct comparison tool. Just select the MDX on the left and a competitor on the right to see how they stack up.
