2018 5-Year Cost to Own Awards: Best Luxury Full-Size SUV/Crossover

2018 INFINITI QX80

Best Luxury Full-Size SUV/Crossover:
2018 INFINITI QX80

Opulence meets rugged capability in the Infiniti QX80, an SUV that's anticipated to have the best 5-Year Cost to Own of any luxury full-size SUV. The QX80 lets you tow up to 8,500 pounds and carry eight people in style - and that style was helped with a recent redesign inside and out. Balancing comfort and capability can be a challenge, but the QX80 succeeds, thanks in part to Infiniti's Hydraulic Body Motion Control suspension system, which smooths out the ride and reduces body roll.

While the QX80 is no lightweight, it's powered by a 400-horsepower V8, which, as explained in KBB's expert review, offers plenty of get up and go. "Mash the accelerator, and this big beast moves with an authority we'd even call `quick.' Yet it's not dramatic. The only time you hear the engine is if you gun it. In fact, that's about the only noise you'll hear, as the QX80's hushed cabin is one of its strongest points."

The interior of the QX80 is filled with luxury touches, such as comfortable quilted leather seats with piping, 15-speaker Bose audio, and new infotainment. It also contains practical features, including the company's fantastic Around View Monitor, which makes it easy to park this large SUV; adaptive cruise control; and Distance Control Assist, which can slow the QX80 as needed in rush-hour traffic.

The 2018 5-Year Cost to Own champ in the Luxury Full-Size SUV/Crossover category starts at nearly $66,000. While there's only one engine available, you can add all-wheel drive and a wide variety of options to make your QX80 even more lavish.
