A plush, quiet, and roomy interior helps place the QX60 among the serious players in the luxury SUV category and fills a gaping hole in Infiniti's lineup. This three-row crossover is powered by a smooth 265-hp, V6 engine mated to a continuously variable transmission. Our all-wheel-drive QX60 returned 19 mpg overall on premium fuel, slightly above par for the category.
But don't expect the typical sporty Infiniti driving experience. Driving the QX60 feels like you're herding an even larger SUV. Most competitors have it beat for agility, particularly its most direct rival, the MDX.
Comprehensive standard equipment makes the QX60's base price inviting, but options packages can quickly add up. Some options are innovative, however. A surround-view camera system displays a bird's-eye view around the car when parking, an advantage given the impeded rear view. And the QX60 can brake automatically when reversing to avoid hitting something behind it.
