2019 Infiniti QX60

Starting Price: $44,995 | Price yours

Above Average: Reliable, stylish, a powerful V6 engine, and a collection of driver safety features that come standard on all trims.

Below Average:  Aging design, fuel economy leaves a bit to be desired.

Consensus: An opulent 7-passenger SUV that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. 
 

The recently redesigned 2019 Buick Enclave is the goldilocks of the 7-passenger SUV wars. The balance of luxury touches like the roomy cabin, soft touch materials, powerful engine, and enjoyable sedan-like driveability makes the Enclave a surprisingly competitive entry into this crowded segment. The Buick Enclave is solidly aimed at some of the luxury German models that can cost far more along with the Infiniti and Acura MDX. The 2019 Infiniti QX60, on the other hand, is getting a bit long in the tooth. It does offer a bevy of stylish touches and tech features that make it a joy to drive. The third row in the QX60 is usable but only by those that are under the age of 7 (or shorter than 5-feet) but its more compact size makes it highly maneuverable in tight parking lots.

Buick Enclave Advantages

Final Recommendation
