Comfort and Convenience

Both models have a passenger capacity of 7 although when it comes to comfort and utility, the 2019 QX60 has a slight advantage over the 2019 MDX. This is because the new QX60 has an overall passenger volume of 149 cubic feet as compared to the MDX’s 132.7 cubic feet. This gives buyers of the QX60 an extra 6.3 cubic feet. The QX60 also has about 2.6 inches more front headroom, 8 inches of extra front legroom, extra 5.1 inches rear legroom, and 1.3 inches of extra rear shoulder room. When considering the third row, the QX60 has an extra 1.4 inches of hip room and 2.4 inches more for the shoulder room. Generally, the QX60 is more spacious and convenient for passengers with different heights as compared to the 2019 Acura MDX. The new 2019 QX60 also has 16 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row while the MDX has 15.8 cubic feet. The QX60 has a towing capacity of 5000 pounds against the 3500 pounds that the MDX gives you.


The 2019 INFINITI QX60 features a standard 3.5 DOHC V6 engine while the 2019 Acura MDX comes fitted with a standard 3.5 SOHC V6 engine. The new QX60 produces a horsepower of 295, which is 5 hp more than the horsepower delivered by the 2019 MDX that produces 290 hp. The new QX60 will also cost you less to fuel since it has a regular unleaded gasoline engine that is cheaper as compared to the premium gasoline used in the MDX. The EPA rate for the QX60 is also higher as compared to the MDX, thus making it a more environment-friendly model. The QX60 features a continuously variable transmission (CVT) without the need for ‘steps’ between gears. This allows you to drive at a more efficient speed while reducing fuel consumption and maintaining the horsepower optimally for maximum acceleration. The new MDX does not support CVT.


Although both models feature advanced safety features, the 2019 INFINITI QX60 comes equipped with more advanced safety and driver-assist technologies as compared to what is available in the 2019 Acura MDX. Some of the standard safety features for the models include standard driver and passenger front airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, side-impact head airbags, front side-impact airbags, plastic fuel tanks, height adjustable front shoulder belts, crash mitigation brakes, rearview cameras, daytime running lights, traction control, lane departure warning systems, electronic stability systems to avoid skidding, and all-around view monitors. The INFINITI QX60 features a height-adjustable front and middle and rear seat shoulder belts, thus allowing passengers with varying heights to customize them.
