Serving Novi, MI

Auto shoppers in Novi and throughout the Detroit area who are interested in buying a luxury car soon may understandably be focused on what INFINITI offers. For drivers who are searching for exceptional quality in a new vehicle that is loaded with class and innovative features, the 2018 Q50 and Q60 are excellent options to consider. These vehicles are both highly-rated in the area of performance, and some trim levels are available for less than $40,000. You may be inclined to think that these two vehicles are in direct competition with each other, but a closer look will reveal that they are unique and appeal to different buyers.


Notably, the same engine is found in the base trim levels and some of the more advanced trim levels for both the 2018 Q50 and the Q60. That is a V6, 3.0-liter twin turbo that packs a punch with 300 horsepower. A lesser engine that still delivers a great overall experience behind the wheel is also available in both vehicles. That is a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder turbo engine that provides you with 208 horsepower. A shiftable automatic transmission is standard equipment in both cars as well. If you demand even more power, keep in mind that you can choose advanced powertrains for the Q50 and Q60. Be aware that the Q50 is classified as a compact executive sedan in a four-door design while the Q60 has the same classification in a two-door coupe design.


One of the reasons why the INFINITI Q50 for 2018 and the Q60 for 2018 are closely related is because of the many similarities they share on an aesthetic level. They both have an elongated and gently sloping front end that gives the impression of regal power. They also share similar contouring on the side panels that provide the cars with a sporty, athletic look. The shade of the headlights is different in these two vehicles, and this gives subtle separation on the front end. The Q50 sedan has triangular headlights with the longest side of the triangle shape butting up against the hood. The Q60 coupe has a similar form and position, but the triangular shape is much more elongated. The primary difference in the exterior, however, relates to the number of doors. Because the Q60 is a two-door coupe with a roofline that bends sharply in the rear, it has a sleek, powerful profile. The interior of both models is similar. Both interiors boast the abundant use of high-end fabrics and have exquisite style.


The features in the 2018 Q50 and Q60 are designed to help you and your passengers to feel comfortable and even pampered on the road. Both vehicles have almost identical features at the base level, and these features jointly step up together as you advance to higher trim levels.
