2022 INFINITI QX60 vs 2022 Acura MDX

Reimagined for the new year, the 2022 INFINITI QX60 is the type of luxury mid-sized SUV that creates a sense of wonder when getting behind the wheel. A powerful engine and a cabin filled with premium features that modern Colorado drivers desire make the QX60 a gem in the SUV field. The transmission and several interior features have been changed for the new model year in the QX60. Compared to other luxury mid-sized SUVs like the 2022 Acura MDX, customers will appreciate the extra performance and other competitive elements that the QX60 has to offer. 


Under the hood of the 2022 INFINITI QX60 is the powerful and efficient V6 engine that its 2020 counterpart contained. This means that drivers get to enjoy 295 horsepower for their daily drives. New to the 2022 QX60 is a nine-speed automatic transmission that has replaced the previous CVT. FWD is the standard drivetrain for the INFINITI with AWD available. The 2022 Acura MDX also maintains the same engine it had in its previous edition. This is a 3.5L V6 engine that outputs a lesser 290 horsepower and is paired with a new 10-speed automatic transmission. Like the QX60, the Acura is equipped standard with FWD and has available AWD.  

Interior Features

Both the 2022 INFINITI QX60 and the 2022 Acura MDX hold similar interior features that solidify them as true luxury SUVs. Front seating with 12-way powered adjustability and heated functionality comes standard on both vehicles. For rear passengers, the 2022 INFINITI QX60 will offer better legroom than the Acura MDX thanks to its 140.6 cubic feet of passenger space compared to the MDX and its 139.1 cubic feet. The infotainment systems in both luxury vehicles are operated through 12.3-inch displays. The display in the QX60 is a touchscreen for direct manipulation, while the MDX features a touchpad instead. A Wi-Fi® hotspot and connectivity to both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto also come as standard infotainment features in both SUVs.  

Safety Features

INFINITI and Acura have loaded their luxury mid-sized SUVs with driver-assistance technology customers need to have confidence that they can tackle any road or weather condition easily.

Both SUVs also come with standard Lane Departure Warning and Lane Keeping Assist so that drivers can safely merge between lanes and prevent unintentional lane merging as well. When equipped with their respective AWD modes, both SUVs deliver the type of handling capability that Colorado drivers need for safely navigating the Rocky Mountains and wintertime roads.
