KBB Editor's Overview

By KBB.com Editorial Staff

In the 2019 Infiniti QX60, buyers will discover a 7-passenger luxury-crossover SUV with dynamic styling, a stunning interior and a robust yet fuel-efficient V6 engine. They’ll also discover a vehicle with exceptional handling, a comfortable ride and a price that severely undercuts similarly equipped competitors such as the Mercedes-Benz GLS and Land Rover Discovery. The QX60’s manageable size makes it easier to park and maneuver than a full-size QX80, yet its interior offers room for five adults with two kids sitting comfortably in the 3rd-row seat. Despite missing some luxury amenities, the QX60 hits the sweet spot in categories that matter most to buyers. However, with no hybrid or diesel option, the 2019 QX60 can’t claim to be perfect, but it comes awfully close.

You'll Like This SUV If...

If you’re looking for a 7-passenger luxury-crossover SUV big on style, comfort, reliability and safety, the 2019 Infiniti QX60 deserves your full attention. Its powerful V6 engine returns fairly decent fuel economy, and its ride and handling are a cut above most in this class.

You May Not Like This SUV If...

If you’re looking for the muscle of a V8 engine, a BMW X5 and Mercedes-Benz GLS 550 are two good options. Those seeking better fuel economy might look to the Acura MDX Sport Hybrid or the diesel-powered Land Rover Discovery.

What's New for 2019

For 2019, the Infiniti QX60 luxury SUV acquires the company’s newest trim designations of Pure and Luxe. Forward emergency braking, forward-collision warning and a blind-spot monitor are now standard on all trims, while a new ProAssist package further expands such driver-assist features as lane-departure prevention.

Driving It

Driving Impressions

The 2019 Infiniti QX60 is one of the better-handling luxury SUVs on the market, but it does sacrifice the softer ride and lighter steering input preferred by some buyers. We think it’s an acceptable trade-off so long as the road remains fairly smooth. Infiniti has taken a rather aggressive approach toward the QX60’s suspension tuning, a bonus when speeding through winding back roads and mountain passes, but a bit of a drawback when encountering rough or pothole-packed pavement. The 295-horsepower V6 is admirable in both its ability to move the QX60 and its fuel consumption. We find it odd that while driver-assist systems such as collision avoidance and lane-departure warning are now standard, adaptive cruise control and automatic high beams remain extra-cost options. We’d also like to see a few more features such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as more power adjustments for the front-passenger seat.

Favorite Features

PREDICTIVE FORWARD-COLLISION WARNING
Always one step ahead, or in this case, one car length, the 2019 Infiniti QX60’s Predictive Forward-Collision Warning system is able to detect sudden braking situations that occur two cars up. In doing so, the system can help increase the emergency-braking system’s activation.

DISTANCE CONTROL ASSIST
This useful feature works by keeping a safe distance between your vehicle and the one ahead. Not only does Distant Control Assist help prevent unwanted fender-benders, it also takes some of the stress out of dealing with stop-and-go traffic.

Vehicle Details

Interior

If you’re looking for a modern interior as handsome as it is comfortable, look no further than the 2019 Infiniti QX60. There’s plenty of room in all three rows, although the rearmost seat is still best suited for kids. Access to the third row is made a bit easier thanks to a 2nd-row seat that can be moved fore and aft. We’d really like to see more power adjustments for the front-passenger seat; however, at the very least power lumbar support. Leatherette seating surfaces look and feel like the real thing, but genuine leather can be had for an additional $3,000.

Exterior

The 2019 Infiniti QX60's rounded, sleek design wears the company’s signature headlight-and-grille design, which works well with the overall design. 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, so it comes as no surprise that even the least expensive QX60 Pure is nicely appointed. Included are heated, power-folding side mirrors, a power moonroof and a power liftgate. Inside, all QX60s come with a Leatherette interior with heated and power-adjustable front seats, acoustic front windows, Intelligent Key with push-button start, tri-zone temperature control, Bluetooth and USB ports, power tilt/telescoping steering column, rearview camera with 8-inch screen and 6-speaker AM/FM/CD audio. Standard safety equipment includes blind-spot monitoring, forward-emergency braking and predictive forward-collision warning.

Notable Optional Equipment

Stepping up to the Luxe trim opens the door to a bevy of option packages. Navigation is optional, as are a 15-speaker Bose audio system, leather seating, ventilated front seats, 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 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

Power for the 2019 Infiniti QX60 luxury-crossover SUV is provided by a 3.5-liter V6 teamed with a CVT automatic transmission. Infiniti’s D-Step logic allows the CVT to mimic the feel of gear shifts and also permits manual shifting when the driver wishes a more engaging experience. Offering better control over throttle input and transmission mapping is Infiniti’s Drive Mode Selector with settings for Standard, Sport, Eco and Snow. The QX60 is offered with front-wheel or all-wheel drive (FWD, AWD) and can tow up to 5,000 pounds.

3.5-liter V6
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)

Pricing Notes

The 2019 Infiniti QX60 Pure has a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) starting just under $45,000. Loaded with options, a QX60 Luxe AWD can reach close to $65,000. At its starting price, Infiniti's 3-row luxury SUV is more expensive than the Buick Enclave, directly in line with the Acura MDX and more than $10,000 below such rivals as the V6-powered Audi Q7 and BMW X5. To find out what others in your area are paying for the 2019 QX60, check out the Kelley Blue Book Fair Purchase Price. Like the above-mentioned Audi and Acura SUVs, the QX60's resale value is expected to be very good.
