What You Will Like

The 2017 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.

Loading Comparison...


The Infiniti QX60 is a front-wheel-drive luxury crossover that seats seven. Competitors include the Acura MDX, Volvo XC90, and Audi Q7.

The current-generation model was launched as a 2013 and was called the JX, then renamed QX60 for 2014 as part of an Infiniti nomenclature overhaul. Styling was freshened and suspension stiffened for model year 2016.

The 2017 Infiniti QX60 brings more power, and a standard 8.0-inch touchscreen with Bluetooth and streaming audio, although the infotainment system remains a weak point.

The 3.5-liter V6 in the 2017 QX60 makes 295 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque, a significant increase from 2016. The aging engine now has high-tech direct injection. It’s mated to a continuously variable transmission that’s not great.

We find the Infiniti’s look and feel equal to the Acura but below the Volvo and Audi whose designs are more imaginative. All-wheel drive is available, as is a Hybrid model, but that’s a low-volume vehicle that most dealers don’t stock, and has to be ordered.

Inside, the QX60 is spacious and stylish. We think the interior looks too much like the much cheaper Nissan Pathfinder, whose platform it shares, but the interior trim is of a higher level. Its aura is upscale, but it doesn’t match the feel of a Mercedes-Benz or BMW, although those vehicles do cost more. And the QX60 doesn’t deliver the driving polish we think it should.

The QX60 earns the Top Safety Pick+ rating from the IIHS, but that’s only if it’s equipped with the expensive packages that include all the safety systems such as automatic emergency braking. The 2017 QX60 is EPA rated at 21/27/23 miles per gallon City/Highway/Combined. The QX60 Hybrid gets 26/28/26 mpg.


Infiniti QX60 comes in standard and Hybrid versions. Option packages include Premium, which adds a Bose 13-speaker sound system, power lumbar support, heated steering wheel, remote starting, and roofrails. Premium Plus adds navigation, surround-view cameras, and Infiniti Connection telematics.


The QX60 doesn’t look as big as it is. It’s relatively sleek and nicely detailed, tastefully modern, a successful adaptation of sedan styling cues to a big crossover. It has a long hood and tapering roofline that makes it look softer than slab-sided SUVs like the Acura MDX. Its profile is distinct from the Nissan Pathfinder on which it’s based.

The front end leads with a large, puckered chrome grille, while the fenders swell gently into the body. The rear pillar features Infiniti’s signature crescent shape that adds distinction to the brand.


Inside, the Infiniti QX60 feels mostly luxurious. The QX60 cabin may be too much like the Pathfinder, for us, but the interior quality is noticeably higher. The dashboard, door panels, and seats are rich but restrained, with contrast stitching on the leather. The two-tone treatments keep the roomy interior light and airy. Base trim is matte silver, while wood comes only with the way expensive Deluxe Technology Package. The analog clock is a signature that’s past its time.

The infotainment display is crisp and clear, but the system is flawed. The menus are convoluted, and the mix of dials, knobs, commands and controller demands learning and sometimes defies understanding. We ended up learning a couple and avoiding the rest.

The layout of the seats is family friendly, with a 60/40 split second row that folds, tilts, collapses, and allows child seats to stay in place during access to the 50/50 split third row. It’s a flexibility you don’t find in many seven-seaters.

The front and rear seats are comfortable for adults, although bolstering in the front light. The third row is just for kids, even though it’s easy to reach. The cushion is low and the padding is thin.

The QX60 Hybrid’s compact lithium-ion battery pack is stashed under the third row, so it doesn’t cut cargo space, nor does it prevent the third row from folding flat.

The doors open wide and the step-in height is relatively low, so it’s easy to climb in and out of the QX60. The rear seat slides to and fro 5.5 inches, affording good legroom. Front-seat cooling is available, but the hardware under the seats gets in the way of rear passengers’ feet; skip it if you want more rear-seat comfort.

With both rows folded flat, there’s a sizeable 76.5 cubic feet of cargo space, and with both rows up, there’s still 15.8 cubic feet in back. That’s more than the trunk of many midsize cars.

There’s a good amount of sound insulation, so it’s pleasantly quiet inside, also because the CVT keeps engine speeds low for fuel efficiency. However, it gets louder under acceleration.

Driving Impressions

When the shocks and springs were stiffened for 2016, the idea was to improve the dynamics and make the QX60 more agile, but now the ride is too firm for a luxury crossover. Meanwhile the roadholding remains just adequate, with notable lean in the turns and understeer when it’s driven hard in corners. Of course, it wasn’t exactly designed to be driven like that, but it was upgraded to be more capable of it. The electric power steering, employed to improve fuel economy, isn’t crisp and doesn’t transmit much road feel.

The 2016 CVT transmission is sub par; it does the car few favors in the refinement department. There are four modes: Eco, Standard, Sport, and Snow. In Eco, the pedal feel is lame, and pushes back, so it’s only satisfactory on long, flat stretches of road, where you might save some fuel. Sport mode makes the CVT behave like a conventional 6-speed automatic, while in any other mode it drones under hard acceleration.

The hard-to-get QX60 Hybrid uses a supercharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, paired with a 15-kilowatt electric motor with clutches on each side, and attached to an adapted version of the CVT. It makes a combined gas/electric 250 horsepower. Unlike hybrids from Toyota, Ford, and others, it can’t pull out on just electric power. It gains about 4 miles per gallon, for about $10,000 more.

Both powertrains are available with all-wheel drive. The system sends its power to the front wheels until they slip, then up to 50 percent can go to the rear. It’s for winter traction, not off-roading.

The V6 is rated to tow up to 3500 pounds. Infiniti says that maybe 20 percent of QX60 buyers might tow.


Infiniti QX60 offers seven-passenger seating in a near-luxury crossover SUV, but it doesn’t offer any compelling advantages over the many vehicles that compete with it. Special pricing and deals may make it more attractive.

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.
