Three-row luxury SUVs like the INFINITI QX60 and Acura MDX have grown immensely in recent years. Providing the practicality of more mainstream SUVs, but with greatly improved luxury and driving dynamics, it's easy to see why more and more Centerville families are choosing luxury crossovers.
The INFINITI QX60 and Acura MDX are two of the most popular vehicles in their segment, and are frequently compared due to their similar size and mission. But which of these luxury three-row SUVs comes out on top for Dayton families? We're going to compare features and design of the QX60 vs MDX to help Ohio shoppers decide which one should be their next family SUV.
INFINITI vs Acura - Features Comparison
Both the INFINITI QX60 and Acura MDX are three-row luxury SUVs, and offer a wide range of interior luxury features, as well as refined driving experiences. While some of their features can seem similar, there are some important differences that separate the QX60 and MDX.
For Ohio families shopping for a family SUV, interior space and convenience are two of the most important considerations. Both the QX60 and Acura MDX have third rows for extra seating, but the INFINITI's is easier to access. That's due to their unique tilt and slide second row, which allows the second row seats to tilt forward and slide, even if there's a car seat attached. For parents who have had to juggle multiple car seats while accessing the third row, this feature is a major favorite.
Standard features on the base INFINITI QX60 include automatic xenon headlights, LED foglights, heated mirrors, sunroof, power liftgate, keyless entry & ignition, simulated leather interior, tri-zone automatic climate control, power heated front seats, an 8-inch touchscreen, satellite radio, blind-spot monitoring, and forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking.
Moving up to the Luxe brings premium sound and other luxury upgrades, and allows Centerville buyers to equip the QX60 with INFINITI's suite of advanced driver aides, bundled in the ProAssist and ProActive packages. With available stop-and-go adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, drive by wire, and other features, it's never been easier to cruise the highway or deal with your commute. INFINITI's semi-autonomous driving has been widely praised by reviewers and owners alike.
Meanwhile, the base Acura MDX comes standard with automatic LED headlights, power liftgate, sunroof, keyless entry & ignition, power heated front seats, leather interior, tri-zone automatic climate control, auto-dimming rearview mirror, Android Auto & Apple CarPlay, 7-inch touchscreen & secondary screen, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane and road departure warning and mitigation, and adaptive cruise control.
As you can see, both the INFINITI QX60 and Acura MDX come with plenty of tech and safety features to keep Dayton owners satisfied. However, Acura's driver aides don't quite rise to the level of the INFINITI system. Both vehicles offer a variety of packages to add luxury and technology features, but the Acura's price quickly outpaces that of the INFINITI QX60.
