If you’re like most Kailua shoppers, you want a vehicle that not only promises maximum comfort and impressive performance but also greater peace of mind while you’re on the road.

MDX vs. QX60: Performance 

For many SUV shoppers, rugged performance and towing capabilities are musts. On the surface, both the QX60 and MDX appear to meet those expectations with equal vigor, but when you compare the numbers, the QX60 stands out as the more capable SUV: 

  • Engine: Both models are powered by 3.5L V6 engines, although the QX60 coaxes a bit more power from its engine. The QX60 generates 295 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque, while the MDX generates 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque. 
  • Transmission: The QX60 comes equipped with a 2-speed CVT transmission, while the MDX gets a 9-speed automatic transmission. 
  • Towing Capacity: The QX60 is the more capable tower, reaching up to 5,000 pounds. The MDX manages just 3,500 pounds. 

MDX or QX60: Safety Features

The 2020 INFINITI QX60 and 2020 Acura MDX have 5-star safety ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Both SUVs come equipped with safety features like collision warning with pedestrian detection, LED headlights, traction control, and automatic exterior light control. However, the INFINITI QX60 goes the extra mile by offering standard and optional safety technologies not available on the MDX: 

  • Standard Blind Spot Warning — detects vehicles entering the driver’s blind zones. 
  • Available Back-Up Collision Intervention — detects approaching vehicles and stationary objects and pushes back on the accelerator to help prevent a collision. 
  • Available Blind Spot Intervention® — uses radar monitoring to keep tabs of the driver’s blind zones, issues visual and audible warnings, and can apply the brakes if necessary to help prevent a collision. 
  • Available Active Trace Control — applies the brakes to each wheel automatically, keeping steering tight as the QX60 corners.
