Exploring the 2016 Infiniti QX60 Trims

July 20th, 2016 by

2017 Acura MDXNo one likes paying for upgrades they don’t want just to get the features that they desire, and oftentimes, the trim options available on luxury SUVs require you to do just that. We want to make sure that you get exactly what you’re looking for out of your next luxury vehicle, so we’ve organized a comparison between the 2016 Infiniti QX60 and the 2017 Acura MDX, its competitor on the rise. Overall, choosing the Acura will allow you to get exactly what you need in your luxury SUV without becoming bogged down by unnecessary features.

Trims of the QX60

There are four models available for the 2016 Infiniti QX60, each of which comes equipped with the features you’d expect in a luxury SUV. Starting at $42,600 MSRP, the 265-hp QX60 3.5 reliably sticks to segment norms. The QX60 3.5 with all-wheel drive is available for only a little more, at $44,400 MSRP.

If you’re looking for something a little bit further outside the norm, you might look toward the QX60’s available hybrid trim, priced at $52,050 MSRP. Prepare to be disappointed: This SUV sacrifices power for a relatively small gain in fuel economy. (In this hybrid, your city mileage will jump from 19 mpg to 26 mpg, but your highway mileage will only increase by 2 mpg!) The AWD model of the hybrid is available for $53,450 MSRP.

Upgrading Your MDX

Acura, as you might expect, does things a little differently. Priced at $43,950 MSRP,* the base-model 2017 MDX has a 3.5L, 290-hp drivetrain. Although that number is slightly higher than the base price of the Infiniti, Acura makes their top features more accessible by including them in packages. This way, you only have to pay for the features that you want.

Acura’s offerings include Technology, Advance, and Entertainment packages, all of which are available on both front-wheel drive models as well as Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive models, which are priced at just $45,950 MSRP.*

The 2017 Acura MDX continues to separate itself from the pack with its key features. By offering AcuraWatch smart driving technology in every MDX model, Acura shows that they know how to separate important features from inessential flash.
