What You Will Like

The 2016 QX60 competes among luxury SUVs, but it offers more luxury and refinement than many of its competitors. Standard luxury items such as leather seats and a panoramic sunroof immediately distinguish the QX60 from the run-of-the-mill minivan. The QX60 strikes a nice balance between space, luxury and price, adding a dose of clever design and state-of-the-art technology for good measure.

What's New For 2016

The INFINITI QX60 gets several updates to both the exterior and interior of the vehicle for 2016. A new grill is the most immediately noticeable change to the front fascia of the 2016 QX60, but look closer and keen observers will also take note of the new bi-xenon headlights, LED fog lights and LED daytime running lights. LED turn signals have also been added to the side mirrors. At the back of the QX60, a new chrome strip draws the eyes in, while giving the vehicle just a little bit more bling. Inside, new, expensive looking materials help keep the INFINITI feeling fresh, airy and comfortable. In addition, the chassis of the vehicle has been tuned for just a bit more handling prowess, making the 2016 QX60 more fun than ever before.

Loading Comparison...


The Infiniti QX60 seats up to seven passengers on three rows. The sizable midsize luxury crossover SUV competes against Acura MDX, Lincoln MKT, and Volvo XC90. When introduced as a 2013 model, it was known as the JX35. A switch to new model nomenclature took place the following year. QX means sport-utility. The QX60 shares its foundation with the Nissan Pathfinder.

Suspension changes for the 2016 Infiniti QX60 include stiffer springs and shock absorbers. The goal was improved dynamics; but rather than enhance agility, the change seems to have only impaired the ride. The styling of the 2016 QX60 was revised, led by a larger grille above an integral air intake.

Offered with either a conventional gasoline V6 engine or a hybrid powertrain, the QX60 is available with front-drive or all-wheel drive.

Infiniti QX60 comes standard with a 3.5-liter V6 engine, rated at 265 horsepower, and a continuously variable transmission (CVT).

The QX60 Hybrid uses a 2.5-liter supercharged four-cylinder engine that makes 250 horsepower, coupled with a 15-kilowatt electric motor.

Blending elegant design with abundant interior space, the Infiniti QX60 is more practical than stimulating to drive. Roadholding is respectable overall, but the body can lean significantly in turns. The length of the QX60 can be an impediment when parallel-parking, and when making your way through narrow urban streets.

Modern, spacious and stylish inside, the QX60 provides splendid third-row access. That’s not the case with Infiniti’s non-intuitive infotainment system, which tends to be confusing and appears outmoded.

Infiniti’s QX60 slips neatly into the central core of the luxury crossover market. In contrast, the shapely QX70 is sportier, while the huge, truck-based QX80 is considerably less thrifty with fuel.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gives the QX60 a five-star rating for side-impact, and four stars each in frontal-crash and rollover tests. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave Good ratings in all tests, plus Superior for the forward collision system.

Available safety systems include adaptive cruise control, blind-spot warning and intervention, and lane-departure warning and prevention. For 2016, the forward collision warning has added emergency braking and pedestrian detection. Backup collision intervention can automatically apply the brakes after alerting the driver to an object behind the vehicle, or to cross-traffic at the rear.


The 2016 Infiniti QX60 ($43,595) and QX60 AWD ($45,395) come with the V6 engine, leather upholstery, power front seats, heated front seats, tri-zone automatic climate control, keyless ignition, a power tilt/telescoping steering column, and rearview camera. Also standard are an auto-dimming mirror, HID headlights, LED foglamps, a power liftgate, moonroof, and 18-inch alloy wheels.

QX60 Hybrid ($53,045), QX60 Hybrid AWD ($54,445) contain the hybrid powertrain with a supercharged four-cylinder engine and electric motor. (Prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge.)

Six airbags are standard, including side-curtain bags in all three rows. An Around View Monitor is optional. Premium, Premium Plus, Driver Assistance, Deluxe Technology, and Theater packages are available.


A new front bumper and large chrome grille for 2016 give the QX60 a slightly more assertive look, but its identity as a spacious luxury crossover SUV remains evident. Headlights have been revised slightly, accompanied by LED foglamps. Modifications at the rear include the liftgate, bumper, and taillights. New 18- and 20-inch wheels are available, too.

Designers have adeptly integrated sedan-like styling touches into this large crossover vehicle, preventing it from looking like a tall, squared-off box. Straddling a long hood, the fenders ease gently into the bodysides. Rear pillars display Infiniti’s familiar crescent shape, below a smoothly sloped roofline.


Attractive and spacious, the QX60’s light, open-feeling interior is the foremost difference between the Infiniti model and the related Nissan Pathfinder. Each QX60 manages to convey quite a luxurious air. Door panels, seats, and the soft-touch dashboard exude a rich, if restrained, flavor, trimmed with wood. Two-tone interior treatments are especially appealing.

Overall, though, the cabin appears ready to fulfill family needs with an indisputably upscale flavor, as opposed to flaunting opulence.

Front and second-row seats are comfortable for adults, though the front pair could benefit from a tad more support. Second-row seats can tilt, fold, and collapse. Even if a child safety seat is mounted, access to the third row is unimpaired, as the second-row seat folds neatly forward.

Getting in and out of the front rows is easy, too. The second-row bench can travel 5.5 inches fore/aft, making it possible to maximize leg space for passengers. Like most third-row seats, the QX60’s are best for young, agile folks who can cope with low cushions.

With both rows folded down, cargo space totals a spacious 76.5 cubic feet. Behind the third row, volume is 15.8 cubic feet.

Driving Impressions

Retuning of the QX60’s suspension for the 2016 model year added firmness to the ride, without improving agility. Body lean can occur during turns. Electric power steering is short on road feel, but that’s a common complaint these days.

Performance of the gas-engine QX60 qualifies as adequate, if less than enthusiastic. Four drive modes are selectable: Eco, Standard, Sport, and Snow. Except on long, flat stretches of pavement, Eco mode can be annoying because the gas pedal pushes back against your foot. Sport mode causes the CVT to imitate gears in a conventional, 6-speed automatic transmission. This provides a more linear matchup between road speed and the engine’s speed.

Because the CVT generally keeps engine speed low, in the interest of fuel-efficiency, the QX60 is mostly quiet-running. Still, the V6 does get louder when full power is requested.

For such a large vehicle, visibility to the rear quarters is reasonably good, provided the third row is not in use. Headrests can be folded down.

Fuel economy is about on par. With front-wheel drive and the gasoline V6, the QX60 is EPA-rated at 21/27 mpg City/Highway, or 23 mpg Combined. All-wheel drive drops the estimate to 19/26 mpg City/Highway, or 22 mpg Combined.

The QX60 Hybrid uses a mild system. Therefore, it cannot pull away from a stop using electric power alone. With front-drive, the Hybrid is EPA-rated at 26/28 mpg City/Highway, or 26 mpg Combined; with all-wheel drive, 25/28 mpg City/Highway. Achieving these figures in real-world driving might not be so easy.


Both the Infiniti QX60 gas-engine and Hybrid models are well-equipped, but quite a few luxury features can be added as options, either individually or in packages. Most active-safety features are optional, too. So, it’s easy to escalate the total price considerably. Whether to pick a QX60 over the related Nissan Pathfinder is a matter of preference for luxurious interior fittings. We’re not too impressed by the Hybrid’s fuel economy.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
