Beautifully crafted to command attention, the 2023 INFINITI QX60 and 2023 Acura MDX both stand out on the road. The muscular QX60 boasts a larger-looking grille than the MDX, but the two are comparatively speaking very similar in overall size — each measuring just over 198 inches long. Standard LED lighting, available motion-activated liftgate, and a panoramic moonroof adorn both models. However, the Acura comes with LED fog lights and the INFINITI with available adaptive front lighting, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and an available Obsidian Black contrast roof.
The INFINITI QX60 and Acura MDX are both powered by a standard 3.5L V6 engine. The MDX Type S is also available with a 3.0L turbo V6. The standard powertrain in the INFINITI SUV makes slightly more horsepower and torque than the standard engine in the MDX, and operates with slightly better fuel economy around town than the Acura. The INFINITI QX60 can also out-tow the MDX by 1,000 pounds.
Equip either model with all-wheel drive (AWD) — intelligent AWD in the QX60 or Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ in the MDX. A drive mode selector with Sport, Standard, Eco, Snow, and Personal modes give you further control over the performance in the INFINITI QX60.
See the accompanying table for engine performance specs.

Blending form and function inside their spacious cabins, the QX60 and MDX can accommodate seven people with three rows of seats. With the rear two rows folded down, the MDX can hold up to 71.4 cubic feet of cargo while the QX60 boasts a maximum cargo volume of 75.4 cubic feet. In both SUVs, you’ll find tri-zone climate control, easy third-row access, premium upholstery options — including quilted, semi-aniline leather in the QX60 and Milano leather in the MDX — and massage, heat, and ventilation for the front seats.
Other available features in the QX60 include:
Large, easy-to-navigate screens and advanced driver assistance technology characterizes the 2023 INFINITI QX60 and Acura MDX. Interact with your key vehicle performance information on a 12.3-inch instrument panel screen and command your navigation, communications, and entertainment with a 12.3-inch center display in either SUV. You can equip a large head-up display on either model as well.
When it comes to safety, there’s zero compromise from either model. In the MDX, you’ll find features like a road departure mitigation system, forward collision warning, and Collision Mitigation Braking System™. For easy road trips the MDX features adaptive cruise control and the QX60 LUXE trim and above includes ProPILOT Assist with Navi-link, which blends adaptive cruise control with a variety of driver assistance technologies and navigation data.
