2020 BMW 5 Series

Controlled Performance: BMW 5 Series vs INFINITI Q60

Harness your BMW 5 Series with an 8-speed transmission that puts 335 horsepower at the reins and uses 331 lb-ft of torque to do it. If you select the M550i xDrive trim, you achieve a whopping 523 horsepower with the force of 553 lb-ft of torque!

With the INFINITI Q60, you get 300 horsepower—an ample amount—backed with 295 lb-ft of torque that is issued from a 7-speed transmission. In the Red Sport trim, you get much less than BMW’s M550i xDrive trim, with 400 horsepower powered by 350 lb-ft of torque.

For efficient gas mileage, examine the 5 Series’ gas stats. It registers an EPA-estimated 25 city/33 highway MPG in its base trim for minimal time left leaving the road. The Q60 works with a little less efficiency, however. The Q60 gives you an EPA-estimated 19 city/28 highway MPG, which may require more refueling.

Inner and Outer Dimensions

2020 BMW 5 Series InteriorA bigger car may mean more room based on the way your vehicle is configured. Let’s take a look. The 5 Series spans 194.6 inches in length, stands at 58.2 inches high, and measures 73.5 inches wide.

If you choose the Q60, it reaches 184.4 inches in length, 54.5 inches from roof to ground, and is 72.8 inches wide.

Now examine the inside of both. Your BMW trunk holds almost 19 cubic feet of cargo volume to easily cart along enough gear for any trips you take. The INFINITI offers much less, with 8.7 cubic feet of cargo volume.

Both provide comfortable seating for any riders you ferry, but the 5 Series holds more with a passenger volume of almost 99 cubic feet. You still get plenty of space for passengers in the Q60, but it contains only 85.4 cubic feet of passenger volume.

Commanding Factors

As we mentioned before, you want control over your luxury sedan. You can accomplish this feat in the BMW 5 Series. Command your vehicle to do your bidding simply by using your voice with the standard Live Cockpit Professional system. If you drive the INFINITI Q60, operating your car by voice can be done, but only after an upgrade.

BMW ups the ante with their unique Gesture Control system, available in the Premium package. Quickly learn five gestures to direct your car, then crack your knuckles and get started. The INFINITI provides no comparable feature.

Driver-Assist Features

BMW’s standard safety system contains multiple driver-assist features in one package. The Active Driving Assistant5 system gives you five different safeguards to protect you and your passengers while you drive. Safeguard tools include Daytime Pedestrian Protection, Frontal Collision Warning with City Collision Mitigation, Lane Departure Warning, Active Blind Spot Detection, and rear Cross Traffic Alert. Each works in tandem to give you a driving safety shield.

INFINITI lets you choose each comparable safety feature individually. Forward Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Predictive Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Warning, and Backup Collision Intervention all offer you guidance and safety, but they are options. In order to get them to work together, you need to add each one to your vehicle.

Make Your Choice Between the 2020 BMW 5 Series or INFINITI Q60

Both luxury sedans—the 2020 BMW 5 Series and the INFINITI Q60—let you control your vehicle on the roads near Jackson, Clinton, and Ridgeland, MS. One, though, gives you more standard features to cede control to you. Take a test drive of the BMW 5 Series at BMW of Jackson to see how they work!
