2020 INFINITI QX60 Review

The Infiniti QX60 doesn't attract a lot of fanfare. It's a fairly non-distinct crossover SUV that, at least in automotive terms, has been around a while without any major changes. But there are still some solid reasons to give this 2020 QX60 a look.

For starters, the QX60's flexible seating arrangement lets you mix and match tall or long gear items with up to six other passengers. You can easily fold down the second-row seatbacks by pulling a lever. The third row is even easier — just push a button. A special feature of the second-row seats is that they have a flip-over mode that allows access to the third row even if there's a child seat installed in the second.

We also like that the QX60 goes down the road smoothly and ably absorbs most ruts and bumps. Its standard V6 engine doesn't possess particularly impressive stats for a luxury SUV — 295 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque — but it's effective and gets you up to speed when you need it to. Also notable is the QX60's continuously variable automatic transmission. This type of transmission often provides a slow and annoyingly elastic-like power delivery, but not here. The QX is well-calibrated for its mission and provides smooth, quiet power.

Still, there are downsides. The QX60's infotainment system isn't as flashy-looking as what you'll find in some competing SUVs. The same goes for the driving experience, which isn't particularly engaging. In general, European competitors such as the Audi Q7, BMW X5, Mercedes-Benz GLE, and Volvo XC90 are a little sportier and come across as more refined and up-to-date vehicles. But if you don't need the latest and greatest in luxury SUV design, the QX60 will likely satisfy.

Edmunds’ Expert Rating
Rated for you by America’s best test team

Our verdict

7.1 / 10
The Infiniti QX60 is the upscale twin of the Nissan Pathfinder and has the materials and build quality appropriate for the luxury segment. But instead of a rough-and-tumble SUV, the QX60 is more of a tall wagon or a minivan equipped with conventional doors. It's quiet, roomy, and easy to change up the interior to accommodate people and cargo.

How does it drive?

6.5
Some of Infiniti's sedans provide potent performance, but the QX60 is more focused on people-hauling and comfort. Its soft suspension and numb steering won't inspire anyone to take a sporting route to their destination, and they isolate the driver from the road. The suspension tuning is soft and sloppy, and that results in lots of body roll when going around turns.

The V6 and CVT automatic combination is smooth and quiet, though. In Edmunds testing, our test QX60 covered 0-60 mph in a respectable 7.3 seconds. Maximum braking power is also good, and the brake pedal is easy to modulate.

How comfortable is it?

8.5
The QX60 is a quiet and comfortable people-mover. We like the stadium-like second-row seating, and the front-seat coolers are among the best we've experienced. The rest of the climate controls also work phenomenally well and are easy to use thanks to the hard buttons and menu interface.

Most importantly, the QX60's ride quality is smooth and comfortable. The QX60 also does a good job isolating road and wind noise. Even on rough pavement, it's easy to carry on a conversation without raising your voice.

How’s the interior?

7.5
The QX60 has a luxurious and thoughtfully designed interior. Up front, you'll find plenty of headroom and very good elbow and shoulder room. The center armrest is nice and wide. The second row also has a good amount of knee room and slides back 5.5 inches, but it feels short on headroom. The third row has livable knee room and even reclines, a thoughtful touch.

The infotainment control knob is high on the dash. You'll need to make a deliberate glance and reach to use it. The touchscreen interface is a nice alternative, but it doesn't fully alleviate this issue. The menus are pretty intuitive to navigate at least.

How’s the tech?

6.5
Although the optional navigation system comes with 3D building graphics, the system looks a little dated. It works well, but the clarity of the graphics is a step behind its competition. Pairing Bluetooth is a little clunky, too. The optional 13-speaker Bose audio system does not disappoint, though.

The automatic braking system works smoothly. It's like an adaptive cruise control system without the cruise function activated. Blind-spot monitoring, front and rear object detection, and lane departure warning are available but in separate packages.

How’s the storage?

7.5
As with nearly all three-row SUVs, available cargo space is heavily dependent on how many passengers you're carrying. At 15.8 cubic feet, cargo room behind the upright third row is scarce, but it expands greatly with the seats folded. The button to bring the seats back up is a nice convenience. There's a decent amount of storage for small items within the cabin plus a bunch of cupholders.

For family duty, there are four lower car-seat anchors on the outboard seats of the second row and one set for the third row. Although you access the anchors between the seat cushions rather than under flip covers, there is plenty of room for seat installation and removal, with easy access to the third row.

How economical is it?

7.0
The EPA rates the QX60 at 22 mpg in combined city/highway driving, which is pretty much in line with the rest of the class.

Is it a good value?

7.0
In its basic configuration, the QX60 offers decent value. But add a bunch of option packages and that appeal wanes, especially since options are bundled into high-priced all-inclusive packages rather than available individually. At least the build quality and materials are worth the money.

Wildcard

6.0
The QX60 doesn't quite fit in as an Infiniti in the traditional way. Its positives include a smooth ride, comfortable interior and an utterly quiet driving experience. But it lacks the style that we've come to expect from the Infiniti brand. Then again, they all can't be sports cars, can they?

Which QX60 does Edmunds recommend?

Once you determine if you need all-wheel drive or not, the best setup for our money would be the Infiniti QX60 Luxe. It comes standard with an upgraded 13-speaker audio system, driver-seat memory settings, and a remote engine start system for not much more than the base model. Add in the Essential package for its upgraded seating material, navigation and surround-view camera system, and then opt for the ProAssist package to gain an excellent adaptive cruise control system, lane keeping assist, and front and rear parking sensors.

INFINITI QX60 models

The 2019 Infiniti QX60 is available in two trims and with front- or all-wheel drive. The Pure is the base model, and it comes with enough luxury equipment to make buyers stepping up to the QX60 happy. Those looking for more features will go for the Luxe trim. Not only does it feature more equipment, but it is needed to add a variety of driver assist, luxury and entertainment options to tailor the QX60 to suit the buyer's sensibilities and budget.

The QX60 only comes with one powertrain: a 3.5-liter V6 (295 horsepower, 270 lb-ft of torque) paired to a continuously variable automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is optional.

Standard features on the Pure include xenon headlights, a sunroof, a power liftgate, keyless entry and ignition, simulated-leather upholstery, tri-zone automatic climate control, power-adjustable and heated front seats, a 60/40-split folding second row, and a 50/50-split folding third row. You also get an 8-inch central touchscreen display, a six-speaker sound system, blind-spot monitoring, and forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking.

Luxe models add a few extras such as roof rails, driver-seat memory settings, a 13-speaker Bose audio system and remote engine start.

When considering a QX60, the bulk of the decision-making comes down to option packages. All of them are only available on the Luxe trim. They include Essential, Theater, ProAssist, Sensory, ProActive, Limited, and a 20-inch wheel and tire package.

4 out of 5 stars, Great Value for the Money
Joe P,
LUXE 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl CVT)

Just bought a 2020 Infiniti QX60 Luxe. It comes standard with an upgraded 13-speaker audio system, driver-seat memory settings, and a remote engine start system for not much more than the base model. We added in the Essential package for its upgraded seating material, navigation and surround-view camera system, and then opted for the ProAssist package to gain an excellent adaptive cruise control system, lane keeping assist, and front and rear parking sensors. Innovative rear seating gives legitimate room to access 3rd row. This car is quiet, good looking inside and out, so so comfortable, a great drive and a great value. Appreciate the 6 cylinder for quietness and ample power. Drove all compeditors: Mecedes GLE (Priced over 10k more beautiful inside but 4 cylinder engine is like a sewing machine, 6 cylinder is another +10 more), Kia Telluride (too large and not as comfortable), BMW 5 series which is way more expensive and tighter cabin, Lexus RX (can't stand the nose on that car and much smaller inside and more expensive), Acura MDX ( Very nice and a competitor but it came down to price for a similarly optioned car, Infinity is better looking IMO). Infinity doing great deals as 2022 model is the next to come out in a year or so (will probably go the turbo 4 route like the QX50 though). Good warranty and bought 3 years service for about 1/2 price up front.

5 out of 5 stars, Great family 3 row SUV!

LUXE 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl CVT)

Bought 2020 Luxe with Essential package - great value. Beautiful inside and outside! Comfort riding, quiet and spacious cabin and a of safety features!

4 out of 5 stars, I love my new QX 60 but........
Mark in Atlanta ,
LUXE 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl CVT)

It's a great vehicle with a solid engine and the fact that I only have three cons. 1. The retracting side mirrors do not have an automatic setting which means you need to do it manually every time you're parking which is a pain. 2. I would put the side mirrors warning light in the mirror so you don't have to break eye contact. 3. It still has the old technology so no Apple or Android car play. QX50 has the new technology with an additional screen. Other than that it's a pretty awesome SUV!

4 out of 5 stars, 2020 Lux with AWD
Tommy D,
LUXE 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl CVT)

We crossed shopped and test drove between Hyundai Palisade, Subaru Ascent, Toyota Highlander, Mazda CX9 and QX60. Of all the car we drove, and given we purchased this suv in Dec,2019, we felt we got the best deal for a semi-luxury SUV for price that is in the range of other mid-range SUVs. This SUV has a decent interior design and quality even though its GPS is outdated and some trims materials are shared with Nissan parts. But given at this price point of around $40k, you are saving thousands comparing to Q7, RX350L, GLE350 and even Kia Tulleride (high dealer markup), this is the best combination of getting a semi- luxury brand vesicle, 4yr/60k full warranty, and other amenities.

Infiniti QX60 vs. the competition

Infiniti QX60 vs. Acura MDX

Both the QX60 and the MDX are crossovers with powerful V6 engines and smooth transmissions. The MDX has a stiffer suspension and larger wheels, moving it more toward the sporty side of the spectrum. On the flip side, the QX60 is roomier on the inside, with more legroom for the rear passengers. The QX60's softer ride complements its comfortable seats.

Compare Infiniti QX60 & Acura MDX features

Infiniti QX60 vs. Audi Q7

The Audi Q7 features a more advanced and comprehensive infotainment system and better smartphone connectivity while offering a stiffer, more sport-oriented ride. It also features a modern interior design. While the Q7 aims to keep you connected to the road, the softer QX tries to separate it from you. They're both functional for cargo and people but go about their mission in different ways.

Compare Infiniti QX60 & Audi Q7 features

Infiniti QX60 vs. Nissan Pathfinder

These two models share inspiration from each other, but the QX has more power and a much nicer interior. But if you're more into the outdoors and bringing along pets or muddy boots, the Pathfinder's durable interior may be more suitable for your needs. Both feature all-wheel drive as an option, but the lower price point of the Pathfinder makes it easier to option up.

Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
