Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the INFINITI QX60 than in the INFINITI QX50, due to its greater head- and legroom. The INFINITI QX60 will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the INFINITI QX50.

Convenience
The INFINITI QX60 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the INFINITI QX50, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the INFINITI QX50 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the INFINITI QX60. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the INFINITI QX50 and the INFINITI QX60 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the INFINITI QX50 is much slimmer than the INFINITI QX60, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the INFINITI QX50, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the INFINITI QX60.

Handling
The INFINITI QX50 has a smaller turning radius than the INFINITI QX60, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The INFINITI QX50 has a little less horsepower than the INFINITI QX60.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the INFINITI QX50 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the INFINITI QX60.

Utility
The INFINITI QX50 has less seating than the INFINITI QX60, making the INFINITI QX60 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The INFINITI QX50 has less cargo space than the INFINITI QX60, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The INFINITI QX50 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the INFINITI QX60.
