INFINITI Q60 vs. BMW 4 Series

What are you looking for in a new or used car? The Infiniti Q60 and the BMW 4 Series are a match-up that takes compact executive cars and asks what you value. Is it the potency and design of the BMW or the price and versatility of the Infiniti Q60? Here we have the breakdown of both and which compact is best suited for you.

Price And Used Potential Comparison

New generation BMW 4 Series are some of the highest-ticket luxury cars on the market. In contrast, the Infiniti Q60 brings a similar level of competition but is considerably less expensive. For the 2023 market, the BMW has an MSRP of $46,895, and the Infiniti is priced at $43,325. While the base price is only a marginal difference of around $3000, used vehicles of similar mileage see a stark discrepancy between the cars. The Infiniti has a much lower average price of roughly $6000 for baseline models and a further $9000 less on an estimate. (Estimates provided by iseecars.com)

Regarding price, the Infiniti is a surefire win for all model years released in the past five years. You will almost always pay less for an Infiniti compared to the brand marketing of a BMW.

Performance And Engine Comparison

The choice between the BMW 4 Series and Infiniti Q60 isn't a question of whose is better but one of which has what you want. The Q60 leads the Series 4 in power, torque, and engine size on paper. The newest Infiniti Q60 comes armed with a 300 hp, 6400 rpm 3.0L V6 Twin-Turbo. It delivers speed and power quickly and can hang with other high-performing luxury vehicles. However, where the Series 4 packs a more petite 255 hp 2.0L I4 Turbo, it is reported to feel more potent behind the wheel than the Q60. Furthermore, the Series 4 has a slightly better gas mileage of 25 MPG city and 34 highway than the 19 MPG city and 28 MPG highway on the Q60.

While the Q60 has a more robust engine size, the better gas efficiency on the Series 4 makes the engine race too close to call.

Other Considerations

  • The BMW 4 Series has a similar track record to the Infiniti Q60. Although, 2023 models have a slightly higher safety rating and features.
  • The Infiniti Q60 has a far more robust and comprehensive warranty with a 4-year 60,000-mile basic and 6-year 70,000-mile powertrain. This coverage far outstrips the Series 4's 4-year 50,000-mile basic and 4-year 50,000-mile powertrain.
  • Both vehicles share comparable infotainment and driver customization options.
  • Depreciation rates on the Q60 are roughly 6% lower than that of the past five years of the Series 4.

Which Is Better?

For its more robust basic engine, lower price, better warranty, and overall performance, the Q60 outpaces the BMW Series 4. While the optional features available on the Q60 fail to reach the heights of the Series 4, it has a level of consistency and a baseline that offers a greater deal alongside a similar package. However, you cannot go wrong with a BMW Series 4; it will cost you far more and requires a level of custom additions that are unneeded to make the Infiniti Q60 shine.

Infiniti Q60 is the Luxury Sport Coupe America Has Been Wanting and Waiting for

Expect another evolution in the perpetually fluid luxury sedan division that drivers will love more and more every time they take the wheel. Turn on the spotlight and get the orchestra warmed up; a gorgeous compact car carrying a ton of easily accessible infotainment capabilities and driver-assistance technology is ready to take center stage. Settle into your seat; this is a solo you're not going to want to be in the bathroom for. The Infiniti Q60 is the luxury sports coupe that America has been wanting and waiting for!

Daring, award-winning design

Infiniti has some of the best designed luxury vehicles on the market. You can see how well designed Infinitis are compared to the rivals – just look at an Infiniti versus a Lexus. It will be obvious. Edmunds reports that the Q60 is still one of the sharpest-looking models in the luxury coupe segment. However, if you want top designers’ and the organizations they belong to for a second opinion, there's a relatively comprehensive list that no other luxury car can match. The list is endless, but the Q60 won the prestigious IF Design Award (Germany) – a symbol of excellent design around the world.

Incredible, award-winning performance

Named in 2018 and 2019 Ward’s 10-Best Engines, the Q60 is powered by a VR-series 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6. This cements the Q60’s position as Infiniti's premier luxury coupe with performance potential. The high-performance Q60 RED SPORT 400 turns up the wick to 400 maximum horsepower at 6,400 rpm and 350lb-ft across the same slice of the rev range. Twin turbos that spin up to 240,000 rpm enable that performance and deliver on-demand response.

Advanced and exclusive technologies

The Simmons National Consumer study surveyed Infiniti buyers and found that Infiniti drivers are more than twice as likely as the average person to have the latest advances in car technology. Examples of these latest technologies include Infiniti InTouchTM infotainment system, Intelligent All-Wheel Drive, Infiniti Safety Shield®, and Intelligent Key.

Excellence in fuel efficiency

Infinitis have been known to show up on the top fuel-efficient publications regularly.  For instance, Autotrader named the Q60 one of the top 7 most fuel-efficient luxury cars you didn't know, having an average rating of 19 MPG city and 28 MPG highway.

Three comprehensive grades at affordable prices

The sleek Q60 coupe comes in three luxurious trims: PURE, LUXE, and RED SPORT 400. Edmunds reports that the Q60 is one of the most affordable vehicles in the luxury coupe segment, and that the Q60's PURE trim has an appealing starting price for a premium coupe. Pricing starts around $42,000 for the PURE trim. The mid-level LUXE retails for about $50,500. Performance driving enthusiasts will love the RED SPORT 400, priced around $58,500. TrueCar.com reports that few competitors can deliver the same value for the Q60's low price.

Infiniti ranked #1 in Customer Satisfaction Index

Infiniti earned top honors, ranking No. 1 in Customer Satisfaction with Dealer Service among Luxury Brands by J.D. Power 2018 Customer Service Index (CSI) Study. Overall, Infiniti achieved a CSI score of 876 on a 1,000-point scale, 48 points above the industry average and 14 points above the premium segment average. In every category within the study, Infiniti ranked in the top tier among premium brands.
