2014 Acura MDX Vs. 2014 Infiniti QX60 Vs. 2013 Lexus RX 350 F Sport Comparison Test

The QX60 Hybrid is Infiniti's first four-cylinder hybrid and, at the moment, the brand's only four-cylinder anything in the U.S. In front-drive form, the supercharged hybrid crossover is more efficient in the city than any other Infiniti SUV is on the highway. Until the QX30 compact crossover arrives in a couple years with a turbocharged four-cylinder under the hood, the QX60 Hybrid is a rolling statement that the Japanese luxury automaker offers at least one efficient SUV. The best-selling Lexus RX makes available a six-cylinder hybrid in the QX60's price range, but with only two rows of seating. That leaves the seven-passenger Infiniti to challenge the three-row Acura MDX and Buick Enclave, neither of which offers a hybrid. Ninety percent of all QX60 buyers go with the V-6, which left us wondering: How does performance of the QX60 Hybrid compare at the track?

Eschewing the 265-hp, 3.5-liter V-6 for the hybrid gets you a powertrain with 250 combined hp from a supercharged 2.5-liter I-4 and a 15-kW electric motor. On the road, the 2014 Infiniti QX60 Hybrid never feels like a slug. In fact, through 60 mph, the hybrid more than keeps up with the V-6 model (the JX35 became the QX60 for 2014). Compared to an all-wheel-drive 2013 Infiniti JX35 V-6, our all-wheel-drive 2014 Infiniti QX60 Hybrid is stronger from 0-30 mph (2.9 seconds to the JX35's 3.2 seconds), and just slightly to 60 mph (8.0 seconds to the JX35's 8.2 seconds). That 8.0-second time compares favorably to a 2013 Buick Enclave AWD (8.5 seconds) but not to the lighter 2014 Acura MDX AWD (6.4 seconds).
