2018 Infiniti QX60

Pros: Genuinely upscale trimmings and features; simple, easy-to-use controls; availability of Hybrid model; surprisingly good handling; impressive passenger and cargo versatility

Cons: Some desirable options are available only in expensive option packages; plus-size wheels take a toll on ride quality

CG Says: The 2018 Infiniti QX60 gains a new Rear Door Alert that reminds drivers to check the backseat for passengers before leaving the vehicle. The hybrid version of QX60 has been dropped. Infiniti QX60 is a premium midsize crossover SUV that seats seven passengers and is based on the Nissan Pathfinder. The sole powerteam is a 295-hp 3.5-liter V6 mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Front-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is available. Available features include forward-collision warning, autonomous emergency braking, pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning and mitigation, blind-spot alert, surround-view cameras, adaptive cruise control, hands-free liftgate, and Wi-Fi. Urbane cabin appointments with simple (for the class anyway) controls and a serene driving experience are QX60 highlights. Less impressive is the QX’s handling and ride quality when equipped with the optional 20-inch wheels. Base prices are competitive, and though Infiniti requires the purchase of costly option packages in order to get some desired features, considering all the content, it’s not unreasonable.
