2017 BMW 4-Series


2017 Infiniti Q60


If you are in the market for a coupe or convertible, then you cannot go past the 2017 INFINITI Q60 or BMW’s 4-Series. Car buyers in St. James, New York, often are unsure which vehicle to choose, so at COMPETITION INFINITI, we are going to give you a little help. Read how INFINITI pips the BMW as the car of preferred choice.

Design & Style
The INFINITI Q60 has an absolutely stunning profile, with its beautifully sloped roof and sharp lines and angles, making it a beautiful looking coupe. Inside the cabin, it is all luxury and comfort, with shades of red and white leatherette (vinyl) on the eight-ways power adjustable seats with lumbar adjustment. There is dual zone automatic temperature control and a 13-speaker premium Bose sound system. The INFINITI InTouch system has voice guidance, lane guidance, and 3D building graphics. Heated seats and a heated steering wheel will keep you warm in winter.

The BMW looks sleek and sexy, as would be expected, while its interior is comfortable. The one real issue with the BMW is that its basic version… is very basic. The interior trim has a lot of hard plastic, while the seats are vinyl and are manually operated. BMW’s iDrive is fitted which takes a while to master and there are packages to upgrade for more technology.

Technology & Safety
The BMW has standard safety features, such as stability control, adaptive brake lights and anti-lock brakes. It is fitted with Automatic Collision Notification, but no rearview camera. Upgrade to get that and a surround-view camera system, park-distance system, blind-spot monitoring and lane-departure warning. The Q60 has the standard complement of safety features, while it is also fitted with Active Trace Cover, blind-spot monitoring, and lane departure warning. It also has Direct Adaptive Steering, which makes constantly and automatically makes adjustments to your steering.

The Q60 comes with a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-4 engine that pulls 208hp with 258 lb-ft of torque. The twin-turbo V.6 3-liter engine pulls 400 horsepower, w with 350 lb-ft of torque, while it can hit 96 km/h in five seconds. There is seven-speed automatic transmission on rear wheel drive. The BMW has a 2.0-liter turbo-4 engine that pulls 248 hp with 258 lb-ft of torque. The 3.0-liter version pulls 320 hp and 330 lb-ft of torque. Rear wheel drive has eight-speed automatic transmission to run it, while there is a six-speed manual option.

The Bottom Line
When it comes to purchasing a car, you should make sure you do your own research. Areas to think about are comfort, technology, and performance, while safety is paramount. It is fairly easy to see that the INFINITI Q60 scores better in all these departments than the BMW, and should be your go-to car.
