Gossips say that will 2018 Infiniti QX60 is a last season of providing the sophisticated SUV for your family. Later following year it would replaced just by all-new QX50 product, based with concept vehicle shown with Detroit Motor unit Show 2017.
Nevertheless, you still are able to purchase among the best looking prime SUV available. Despite a comparatively old beginnings (first JX35 product debuted with 2012), following your last season facelift, your car is nevertheless relevant.
No wonder than Infiniti bosses hasn’t change QX60 much for years – it simply doesn’t need to. The overall styling is a bit out-of-time, unlike many other rival SUVs. Last year update bring just a minor tweaks, like redesigned stuffing of the headlights and rearlights, new design of wheels, while the major features of design remains the same. It’s not a drawback – 2018 Infiniti QX60 still looks stunning.
It is designed not only to be pretty, but also a comfortable – thanks to a wide doors, it is easy to entry even to the third row; the trunk is spacious enough to handle weekend shopping and long trip.
It doesn’t look big though – thanks to sleek lines.
Hybrid is no longer available
One of the major change in QX60 for 2018 model year is the discontinuation of hybrid-powered modification. We can’t say it is a big loss, since the QX60 hybrid wasn’t so popular, but the only choice now is a good-old 3.5L V6 with 295 HP output, which you couldn’t name fuel efficient enough – 22 MPG in EPA combined cycle. Average numbers, but MDX hybrid goes 27 MPG, as well as new hybrid Volvo.
The car comes with front wheel drive or all-wheel drive layout.
Comfort is everything
What we like most in QX60 is a comfort level. Despite being made on the basis of Pathfinder and shares some element with this Nissan SUV, the Infiniti 3-rower feels just incredible, not like $100K+ premium SUV, but way better than most of competitors. High-quality materials, huge load of legroom, and unbelievably comfortable front and second row seats. The third row, despite being easy accessible, is suited only for kids and mainly in short trips. But we cannot call it a drawback – if you need a proper passenger carrier, better looking for bigger SUVs or even better any sliding doors minivan in a market.
