Infiniti QX60 Review

Previously known as the JX, the Infiniti QX60 has virtually remained unchanged ever since it got the new QX60 nameplate. This shouldn’t however be taken to mean that it hasn’t got some mild refreshments on several of its facets that have managed to keep it afloat in its class. While we are of the opinion that it has improved in leaps and bounds, there’re certain drawbacks that have perennially hindered it from becoming a top dog within the three-row luxury crossover SUV segment.

It is an all-rounded vehicle that won’t break the bank by luxury standards. Some welcome changes include LED lighting (running lights, foglights, and taillights), a redesigned grille, and minor exterior cues. Unlike its predecessor, the new model comes with abundant sound deafening materials that drastically reduce the amount of noise entering the cabin. The result of this is a serene ride quality devoid of the bustling environs. Also, the steering and suspension have seen some improvements as well.

But even with such seemingly refreshed facets, the Infiniti QX60 2017 will arguably still face an uphill task in trying to climb to the top of the trim ladder. Our top recommendation in the segment would undoubtedly be the 2017 Acura MDX. Other vehicles you can perhaps take for a spin around the block include the Volvo XC90, and the BMW X5.

There’s no doubt that Infiniti has come from a long way. The ‘long way’ has however not been easy and the automaker has had to make certain concessions in order to appeal to its buyer’s pool. While it has strived to offer premium features and equipment, the overall refinement is a serious concern especially considering the impressive spec sheet that its rivals offer. For 2017, Infiniti has uped up its game in order to match the cabin trim levels of its German and American rivals.

The interior, as shall be seen later on in this review, comes with impressive equipment. The overall ambience ia better than before and this adds to its elegant appeal. The options’ list also bundles an extensive amount of features in form of bundles that buyers will have to spend an extra to get. Although the availability of the options is welcome, it negates the price advantage that compelled buyers to choose it over the rest of its rivals. In overall though, it all comes down to your priorities.
