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

2017 Infiniti QX60

Best Luxury Mid-Size SUV/Crossover:
2017 Infiniti QX60

The Infiniti QX60 has clawed its way to the top of the podium, claiming its first 5-Year Cost to Own Award. One of just two 3-row crossover SUVs offered by Japanese luxury makes, in our full review we said the QX60 "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."

Helping to put the QX60 over the top was an update for the 2017 model year that includes a new 3.5-liter direct-injected V6 developing 295 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque, plus available niceties like a motion-activated power liftgate, upgraded rear-seat entertainment system and onboard Wi-Fi. And this is just one year after the QX60 was updated with sportier driving dynamics and a softer, quieter interior. Continuous improvement is indeed a mark of champions.

Inside, the QX60 features plenty of soft-touch surfaces and comfortable seats including a third row that will actually accommodate two adults. Safety features like collision avoidance, lane-departure warning and adaptive cruise control are all available. There's also a Drive Mode Selector with four modes -- Standard, Sport, Eco and Snow -- as well as a manual "shift" mode for the continuously variable automatic transmission.

The 2017 Infiniti QX60 offers plenty of creature comforts at its starting price of $44,095, and will gladly accommodate the most feature-happy buyers up towards $60,000.
