The 2020 INFINITI Q60 and 2020 Jaguar XE are two very popular sports cars, and they often compete with each other. If you’re tossed up between the two, don’t worry, it’s only natural. We can help you decide which to choose with a side by side comparison.
When you’re comparing two luxury sports cars, the power and driving dynamics are one of the most important aspects to consider, especially in this matchup. The INFINITI Q60 is powered by a 3.0-liter twin turbo premium unleaded V6 with 300 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. In comparison, the Jaguar XE runs on only a 2.0-liter intercooled turbo premium unleaded I-4 with 247 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission. The fuel efficiency ratings in these two cars are similar enough that the extra power provided by the Q60 is more than worth it.
Looking inside the cabins of these two sporty cars, you’ll find even more differences in favor of the INFINITI Q60. First, the infotainment center in the Q60 has two large dual-screens and comes standard with smartphone connectivity via Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto. It’s a clean, easy to use design offering seamless connection on the road. The XE’s screens aren’t quite as intuitive. Additionally, the Q60 offers more headroom in the front row, as well as more front legroom to accommodate taller drivers.
Though the Jaguar XE technically offers seating for five, the middle seat in the rear row is quite small, and would offer a cramped ride for any adults attempting to squeeze three passengers into the rear row. Instead of forcing a third seat into the rear row of the Q60, INFINITI made wise use of the space and put a console with a small tray and two cup holders in the rear, allowing for thoughtful storage for rear occupants.
Driver assistance features are available in both the 2020 INFINITI Q60 and the Jaguar XE. The Q60 offers forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist, and a rear-cross traffic alert. The XE has automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, a rear cross-traffic alert, and a driver attention warning. Both vehicles require additional packages or upgrading to higher trim levels to access most driver assistance features.
