We needed a bigger car for our growing family. The Q5 can only fit 2 baby car seats in the back. We looked at Yukon XL and Expedition, but realized that it is not a great car for daily drive since it is too big. Those cars are great for long road trip and can be rented at any time. Audi Q7 is a nice car but just way too expensive. Our choices came down to VW Atlas, Infiniti QX60, and Honda Pilot. What is nice about the Atlas and QX60 is the ability to get to the back seats without having to remove the baby car seats. The exterior styling is what sold the QX60 to my wife even through the Atlas has a nice panoramic sunroof similar to Audi's (QX60's is lacking...not as grand/nice). The other reason to go with QX60 is Infiniti's lease; they give really affordable leases that I don't think anyone can match. For zero down (only first payment of $479), we drove away in a 2018 Infiniti QX60 AWD Premium Plus that has remote start and heated steering wheel. Our lease is for 39 months with 12k miles/year. I don't think we could even lease a Q5 for that price. The ride and handling is not as nice as our Audis; however, it is pretty good. We are not fond of the CVT and don't really care since it is a lease. Overall, it is a great choice for our family. Great car with most of the things we wanted at a relatively affordable pricing.
While Infiniti QX60 was made for hauling seven. The second row seat head rests are in the way when children are sitting in the third row seats making it very difficult to see the entertainment screens that are placed on the back of the front seat headrests. And to put the kids in the second row seats so they can see the screen. Makes the Grandparents in the third row seating very tight especially with foot space! And talking over the entertainment going on in the second row. It just does not work! Try again Infiniti and actually have real people use!!!!
This vehicle have some great safety Technology, ride comfort, styling and value. So much room compared to other luxury 3rd row. Highly recommend to test drive it and Check offers. This is the 2nd QX60 lease and it’s been reliable.
Just bought 2018 qx 60 it’s been month had transmission problem cooling fan and some other problems that they can’t figure out where that new humming sound coming from it’s been over month sitting at dealerships think twice before buying INFINITI..
