Luxury cars are designed to meet high expectations, and they have to be ready for everything from a casual drive around Roanoke to miles of highway on lengthy road trips. That’s why the INFINITI Q60 and Volkswagen Arteon were designed to complement broad versatility with lasting luxury comfort. It can be tough to choose between these two dynamic cars, so let’s compare some key qualities to pick a winner.
While both cars demonstrate responsive handling and a smooth ride, there’s more to performance than pleasant cruising. Your car needs to provide all the energy you need to accelerate with confidence, and when you’re ready to merge onto busy highways, it pays to have a powertrain you can count on. That’s why the Q60 compliments its sporty looks with a spirited powertrain, and a 300-horsepower V6 engine comes standard. You can also opt for the available Q60 Red Sport 400 model, which runs on a twin-turbocharged V6 that cranks out 400 horsepower. Volkswagen only offers one engine for the Arteon – a 268-horsepower 4-cylinder that doesn’t match the Q60’s brisk acceleration.
The luxury designation should set certain expectations about these car’s interiors, and the Q60 does not disappoint. This stylish coupe is generously appointed with high-quality furnishings throughout the cabin, with standard leatherette upholstery and cushioned seating for everyone onboard. While the Arteon does sport some quality furnishings and features, its overall style and feel have underwhelmed critics, and its cabin doesn’t present the same premium feel that class rivals offer. Reviewers also warn that the steep roofline can cut into rear-seat head space.
