2022 INFINITI QX60 vs 2022 Audi Q7

With the 2022 INFINITI QX60, the luxury brand reimagined what they wanted their premier mid-sized SUV to be. The result is a driving performance that is both impactful and elegant at the same time. Taking a relaxing drive around Denver or going across the state on the highway are both met with poise and reliability that only INFINITI can provide. A powertrain that can handle the demands of performance-minded Colorado drivers rounds out the functionality of the new QX60. With other luxury options like the 2022 Audi Q7, drivers do not get the same overall quality that makes the INFINITI a standout performer.  


Despite the redesign of the 2022 INFINITI QX60, the SUV maintains the excellent V6 engine it had from its 2020 version. This means that drivers will get to appreciate 295 horsepower that is effortlessly channeled through a new automatic nine-speed transmission. The result is a ride that is thrilling, but smooth. Standard QX60 models are FWD, with AWD being available for drivers who want more grip and handling performance from their luxury SUV. The 2022 Audi Q7 keeps its standard turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder from previous versions. At 248 horsepower, the overall performance of the Q7 lacks the satisfying upside of the QX60. An automatic eight-speed transmission handles gears shifts for the luxury SUV. Every 2022 Audi Q7 comes with quattro® AWD as the standard drivetrain.  

Interior Features

Interior spaciousness and deluxe comfort features help set the 2022 INFINITI QX60 apart from the 2022 Audi Q7. With 140.6 cubic feet of total passenger space, the QX60 gives passengers in every row plenty of head and legroom to comfortably stretch around in. The adjustability of the front seating in the standard trim of both SUVs swings in the favor of the INFINITI as well. While standard heated functionality is shared between the two, the QX60 sports 12-way powered adjustability compared to the eight-way adjustability of the Q7. For infotainment purposes, both SUVs have integrated Wi-Fi® hotspots and compatibility to both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for applicable devices. Both SUVs give drivers 12.3-inch displays for clear visibility of the various media menus.   

Safety Features

Standard driver-assistance systems such as Automatic Emergency Braking help make the 2022 QX60 and the 2022 Q7 reliable vehicles for the safety-minded consumer. Both SUVs also share Lane Departure Warning and Lane Keep Assist as additional standard safety features to help keep the driver aware of what is going on behind them on the road. When equipped with AWD, the handling and grip that these two SUVs offer Colorado drivers make them highly competent winter options for confidently tackling snowy and icy conditions.
