2019 Infiniti QX60: Luxury SUV Impresses the Most

By Autoreviewman

The 2019 QX60 is a sleek, three-row premium crossover utility vehicle that offers a good combination of luxury and versatility. The revised QX60 carries a modern look with a new grille, bi-xenon headlamps, LED daytime running lights and fog lights, integrated LED turn signals in the rearview mirrors, and new front and rear fascias there are suspension tweaks and upgraded safety. A plethora of electronic driving comfort, technology and luxury aids are now standard.

The 2019 Infiniti QX60 comes well-equipped at a base price of $48,695. Standard equipment is luxurious and generous with: Intelligent all-wheel drive, tri-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery with heated power-adjustable front seats intelligent key with push-button start, heated leather wrapped steering wheel, seven-inch colour display with rear-view monitor, automatic HID headlights, cruise control, high spec audio system, power tailgate and rear privacy glass. The QX60 is available as a V6 powered CUV, with a 295-horsepower 3.5L V6 mated to a CVT transmission, and comes standard with Infiniti’s ‘intelligent’ all-wheel drive.

Inside, the QX60 looks suitably luxurious and well designed with sharp leather seats and nice textures, materials and tight fitting panels. Soft-touch materials abound for driver and passengers, and   the overall ambience is very good. The sumptuous quilted seats are too die for and offer superb comfort. The dash and console feature plenty of technology accessed by a host of buttons and switches. The interior is extremely versatile with full sliding second-row seats that allow easy access to the third row.

On the road, the QX60’s V6 Horsepower is now rated at a robust 295, up 30hp from the 2017 version I last tested, while torque is up 22 To a healthy 270 lb-ft. Body roll is less evident, and the QX60 takes corners getter, still with its light steering and rather soft ride, the QX60 is more of comfortable cruiser, that a sporty handling SUV.

            Nothing much to gripe about, Canada Energuide fuel economy ratings are 12.5/9.0 L/100 km city/hwy. In closing there is much to like about the QX60. It is luxurious, comfortable, and roomy, and an excellent safety orientated family hauler. Downsides are few; buyers need to weigh up the premium price it commands when you option it out.  The QX60 is very impressive and nice to drive all day long. Highly recommended.
