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.
- 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.
