Comparing the engines of the BMW X5 vs. INFINITI QX60, it’s clear the INFINITI QX60 can’t compete with the power the BMW X5 churns out.

What extends the gap even more between these engines is that the INFINITI QX60 is only offered in one engine configuration, while the BMW X5 has four different engines to choose from. If you want lots of hair-raising power, choose the 4.4L BMW M Performance TwinPower Turbo V8 engine and you’ll get 523 horsepower fueling your every throttle.

BMW X5 vs INFINITI QX60 Capabilities

BMW X5 CapabilityWhile power is an important factor of your new luxury SUV, what’s more important is what that power is capable of doing.

To ensure you can experience the full power of your SUV even in the pouring rain, you can choose to equip both vehicles with all-wheel drive capabilities. You’ll also be able to explore Florida as long in the INFINTI QX60 as you will in the BMW X5 since they have similar fuel efficiencies—that is, unless you drive the hybrid X5 model.

With this hybrid model, you’ll have an EPA-estimated 400-mile driving range with a combined 50 MPGe rating. With the X5, not only will you leave the QX60 behind because of your power, but you’ll also be making far fewer stops.

Comfort Features

BMW X5 InteriorKnowing you can travel for the long haul means you’ll want an inviting interior that supports your need for comfort. Cue the 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat in the INFINITI QX60. With this feature, you’ll be melting into your leatherette-appointed upholstery and relaxing throughout your commute. How can it get any better than that?

The BMW X5 heard this challenge and doubled your comfort with the standard 16-way power-adjustable front seats with premium SensaTec upholstery.

Just when you thought melting into pure relaxation was enough, the BMW X5 comes along and creates unprecedented comfort—especially if you upgrade to the available 20-way power Multi-contour front seats with added shoulder and thigh support.

BMW X5 vs INFINITI QX60: Which Will You Choose?

While both vehicles offer premium features sure to enhance your Tampa and South Tampa travels, as you can see in our BMW X5 vs. INFINITI QX60 review, the QX60 doesn’t hold a candle to the top-tier performance, capability, and comfort of the X5.
