2017 INFINITI QX60 KBB Expert Review
The 2017 Infiniti QX60 luxury SUV offers buyers all the style, comfort and power for which Infiniti is known, then tops it off with impressive safety technology, a sumptuous interior and room for seven passengers. The 3-row QX60 offers sportier handling than the softer-sprung Buick Enclave or Audi Q7, yet this same advantage can become a detriment over less-than-perfect pavement. Stern ride aside, the QX60 offers a powerful V6 engine, choice of front- or all-wheel drive (FWD, AWD) and styling that truly stands out from other luxury SUVs. The QX60 Hybrid offers slightly better fuel economy with similar performance, but as gasoline looks to remain cheap for the near future, we’re not certain the extra cost and technology are worth the added premium.
You'll Like This Car If...
If you’re seeking a 3-row luxury SUV that features sporty handling, a unique look plus a full range of technology and driver-assist features, Infiniti’s QX60 for 2017 checks all the right boxes. Attractive pricing makes the QX60 more appealing than similarly equipped models from Mercedes-Benz or BMW.
You May Not Like This Car If...
If you want more than 300 horsepower under the hood, you’ll need to look to the BMW X5 or Mercedes-Benz GLS. Those needing lots of cargo space or the ability to tow more than 5,000 pounds might be better off with a larger Cadillac Escalade or Infiniti QX80.
What's New for 2017
The 2017 Infiniti QX60 gains gasoline direct injection for an additional 30-horsepower bump. A motion-activated power liftgate joins the options list, as do an improved rear-seat entertainment system and Wi-Fi.
Ride comfort is always a subjective topic, but in the 2017 Infiniti QX60 luxury-crossover SUV we can safely attest this is a vehicle for those who prefer sharp handling and responsive cornering to a soft ride and light-touch steering. Infiniti has tuned the QX60’s shocks and springs for aggressive driving, which is fine so long as the road remains smooth. Venture over expansion joints or the odd pothole, however, and the ride can become noticeably jarring. Fuel economy is respectable in this class, although you can find nearly identical numbers in a more powerful Audi Q7. Inside, the QX60’s visually pleasing cabin is filled with contrasting colors, soft-touch surfaces and supportive seating including a third row that is actually workable for two adults. Safety features like collision avoidance, lane-departure warning and adaptive cruise control are all available, but are not standard.
PREDICTIVE FORWARD-COLLISION WARNING
While many cars offer collision warning and intervention systems, the 2017 Infiniti QX60’s system has the ability to look at the car beyond the one in front of you, thus anticipating situations in which the driver directly ahead will likely respond.
DISTANCE CONTROL ASSIST
Bumper-to-bumper traffic is now a part of everyday life, which is why the QX60’s Distance Control Assist can make the drive a little less stressful. Should you become momentarily distracted, DCA keeps an appropriate space between your car and the car ahead, eliminating the possibility of a minor fender-bender.
The midsize-luxury-crossover SUV segment has plenty of 3-row vehicles, but Infiniti’s 2017 QX60 luxury SUV stands out because its plush, leather-lined cabin is comfortable in all seven spots. The comfortable front seats make highway miles go by in a flash, and climate, audio and navigation controls are easy to reach and use. The third row is surprisingly accommodating for two adults and, thanks to a second row that slides fore and aft, getting there is easy. Infiniti makes the interior even more pleasing with ample soft-touch materials, and by using laminated glass to make the interior quieter.
The 2017 Infiniti QX60's rounded, sleek design has been recently updated with redesigned headlights and grille, and new fog-light surrounds. The side view shows a gently sloping roof, but that design doesn’t negatively affect the QX60's impressive interior room. One of the key styling cues of the QX60 is the bowed window frame at the back of the side windows. A smaller version of this design detail can also be seen on Infiniti's stunning Q60 coupe. In back, the power-operated tailgate, which comes standard, makes it easier to load and unload gear and groceries.
Notable Standard Equipment
Buyers expect a luxury SUV to come equipped with a bevy of standard features. And even the least expensive QX60 is nicely appointed, with features like heated, power-folding side mirrors; moonroof, and a power liftgate. Inside, all QX60s come with a leather interior with heated and power-adjustable front seats, tri-zone temperature control, Bluetooth and USB ports, power tilt/telescoping steering column, rearview camera with 7-inch screen and 6-speaker AM/FM/CD audio. Some optional features in the regular QX60 are standard in the Hybrid, which also has a system that emits a sound to notify pedestrians that the otherwise hushed vehicle is there.
Notable Optional Equipment
You can choose gas or hybrid, and front- or all-wheel drive, but many of the other options are bundled into packages. Navigation is optional, as are a 15-speaker Bose audio system, heated seats in the second row, a motion-activated power liftgate, Wi-Fi, auto high beams, heated steering wheel, a moonroof over the second and third rows and a rear-seat entertainment package. There are also a lot of available safety features, including blind-spot monitoring, intelligent cruise control, lane-departure warning and prevention, and systems that can automatically apply the brakes when traveling in both forward and reverse.
Under the Hood
The 2017 Infiniti QX60 is powered by a smooth, 295-horsepower V6 linked to a CVT automatic transmission. This Infiniti has a Drive Mode Selector, which offers four modes -- Standard, Sport, Eco and Snow. The transmission also has a manual mode that simulates shifting gears. Under the hood of the 2017 QX60 Hybrid, you'll find a 2.5-liter supercharged 4-cylinder engine that, in combination with a 15kW electric motor, has a net power output of 250 horsepower. It, too, is fitted with a continuously variable transmission. Whether you are looking at the V6 version of the QX60 or the hybrid, you can choose between FWD and AWD. Towing capacity is rated at a laudable 5,000 pounds for V6 models and 3,500 pounds for the hybrid.
295 horsepower @ 6,400 rpm
270 lb-ft of torque @ 4,400 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 20/27 mpg (FWD), 19/26 mpg (AWD)
2.5-liter supercharged inline-4/15kW electric motor
250 net horsepower @ 5,600 rpm
243 lb-ft of torque @ 3,600 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 25/27 mpg (FWD), 25/27 mpg (AWD)
Note: Due to changes in EPA testing to more effectively reflect real-world conditions, some 2017 models show slightly lower fuel-economy scores than their 2016 versions.
The 2017 Infiniti QX60 has a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) starting just over $44,000 when equipped with a V6 and front drive, while the QX60 Hybrid begins at just over $53,000. Loaded with options, the QX60 can reach close to $60,000, and the hybrid SUV can top $63,000. At its starting price, Infiniti's 3-row luxury SUV is directly in line with the Acura MDX and more than $10,000 below such rivals as the Audi Q7 and BMW X5.
