2017 5-Year Cost to Own Awards: Best Luxury Full-Size SUV/Crossover

2017 Infiniti QX80

Best Luxury Full-Size SUV/Crossover:
2017 Infiniti QX80

The Infiniti QX80 is the largest, cushiest and most comfortable SUV in Infiniti's lineup. It's also projected to be the least expensive luxury full-size SUV to own over a five-year period. There's something to be said for the seemingly contradictory combination of smooth opulence and truck-like capability that's found in the QX80. As KBB explains in the expert review, "With each mile you feel coddled, cradled and comfortable, but most of all, you feel invincible. This full-size SUV has a body-on-frame construction and a truck-type chassis, yet it handles and rides exceptionally well."

Powered by a 400-horsepower V8, you can tow up to 8,500 pounds behind a QX80, carry up to eight people on board, and, as the expert review explains, "The big QX80 really thrives on the highway where the interior is extremely quiet and the ride defines 'smooth.'" Some of that smoothness can be attributed to its Hydraulic Body Motion Control System, which improves cornering and smooths out motions over bumps and potholes.

Infiniti offers highly practical tech features that make the QX80 even easier to live with. While parking lots and smaller spaces are more challenging for the QX80, Infiniti wisely added its excellent Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection. Other tech aids include adaptive cruise control, and Distance Control Assist, which can automatically slow the QX to a crawl in heavy traffic.

This 5-Year Cost to Own Award winner starts at about $65,000, and while there's only one engine and two trim levels, there's plenty of room to get as extravagant as you like with the already plush interior.
