The Acura MDX and the INFINITI QX60 are fierce competitors, year after year. However, now that the Acura MDX has entered model-year 2022, the Acura MDX vs. INFINITI QX60 match-up has a very clear winner. If you’re looking for a three-row family SUV that satisfies your need for advanced safety features and spacious cargo capacities, the MDX is far and away the better option. We’ve covered everything you need to know.



Safety Features: Acura MDX vs. INFINITI QX60

If a three-row luxury SUV doesn’t provide a full suite of safety features, many National City and Carlsbad families are bound to find it lacking. The 2020 INFINITI QX60 comes standard with a rearview camera, a forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, and blind spot monitoring.  That’s great compared to other SUVs but it’s nothing compared to what you’ll find in the 2022 Acura MDX. The latter’s suite of safety features now includes:

  • Multi-View Rear Camera with Dynamic Guidelines
  • Driver drowsiness monitoring
  • Forward Collision Warning (FCW) System
  • Advanced Pedestrian Detection
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™)
  • Lane Departure Warning (LDW) System
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
  • Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) System
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow
  • Traffic Jam Assist (TJA)
  • Traffic Sign Recognition
  • Blind spot information (BSI) System
  • Rear Cross Traffic Monitor

You’ll need to upgrade the QX60 to access most of these features, and some are not available at all. If you upgrade the MDX, you’ll be able to access a head-up display, a surround-view parking camera, and front/rear parking sensors. Everything else you might need comes standard.

Overall Safety Scores: Acura MDX vs. INFINITI QX60 Reviews

The 2022 Acura MDX has not yet been rated by independent safety experts. However, if you’ve been comparing Acura MDX vs. INFINITI QX60 reviews, then you might already know a thing or two about the outgoing model:

  • In 2020, the U.S. News gave the MDX an overall safety score of 9.8.
  • The 2020 INFINITI QX60, on the other hand, received a score of 9.2.

Now, with the release of the 2022 Acura MDX, the gulf between their suites of safety features has only widened. If you’re looking for a safer three-row SUV for your San Diego adventures, it’s best to pass over the QX60 and choose the MDX instead.


Cargo Space and Versatility: Acura MDX vs. INFINITI QX60

Providing adequate cargo space, even with a cabin full of passengers, is one of the most important challenges for three-row SUVs like the Acura MDX and the INFINITI QX60. The QX60 comes close, but the Acura MDX has a clear advantage:

Acura MDX Cargo Space

  • 18.1 cubic feet behind the third row
  • 48.4 cubic feet behind the second row
  • 95.0 cubic feet behind the first row

INFINITI QX60 Cargo Space

  • 16.0 cubic feet behind the third row
  • 40.5 cubic feet behind the second row
  • 76.2 cubic feet behind the first row

Both models include fold-down second and third-row seats as standard, so you can easily access more cargo space when you need it. However, the MDX interior offers one advantage here that the QX60 can’t match:

  • In the Acura SUV, the second row’s middle seat can transform into a center console.
  • You can also remove it entirely and store it at home for later use, thereby converting the second-row bench seat into second-row captain’s chairs.
