2020 Infiniti QX60 Review

The 2020 Infiniti QX60 ranks in the middle of the luxury midsize SUV class. It has a robust engine and good fuel economy estimates, but many of its rivals have more premium cabins, sharper handling, and more-modern tech features.

Pros & Cons

  • Robust engine
  • Good cargo room
  • Affordably priced
  • Less sporty than rivals
  • Some cheap-looking interior materials
  • Oddly placed infotainment controls

Is the Infiniti QX60 a Good SUV?

Yes, the 2020 Infiniti QX60 is a good SUV. With its capable engine, it is slightly more fuel-efficient than many competitors. There’s also a decent amount of cargo room for a three-row SUV. However, while the QX60 is good, many rivals are great, offering more-upscale build materials, athletic handling, and newer tech such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Should I Buy the Infiniti QX60?

The Infiniti QX60’s below-average starting price helps make it a decent value proposition in the luxury midsize SUV class. However, you could spend less money for a similar vehicle such as the Nissan Pathfinder, which is the nonluxury version of the QX60. If you care more about having a luxury vehicle than having plenty of passenger and cargo space, consider the Infiniti QX50, which is a bit like a compact QX60.

Should I Buy a New or Used Infiniti QX60?

The Infiniti QX60 debuted as the JX for the 2013 model year. Infiniti changed the name from JX to QX60 for 2014. Since then, it has seen a few notable changes. It was lightly refreshed for 2016, with suspension tweaks and a restyled exterior. A stronger V6 engine became standard in the 2017 QX60, and the hybrid model was discontinued for 2018.

Infiniti added a pre-collision warning and braking system with pedestrian detection to the 2019 QX60's standard features list. The 2019 model also saw the lineup expanded from one to two trims: Pure and Luxe. There are no major changes for 2020. If you're open to a used QX60, the 2017 model makes a good choice. You'll get an SUV that's nearly identical to the new model for much less money.

Infiniti QX60 Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: Infiniti QX60 or Nissan Pathfinder?

The Nissan Pathfinder is essentially the nonluxury version of the QX60. Its main advantage is price – the top-trim Pathfinder Platinum with four-wheel drive retails for almost the same as the base QX60. That higher trim model also has more standard features than the base Infiniti, such as adaptive cruise control and an 8-inch touch screen. The Nissan has a bit more cargo space too. However, the Infiniti has a gentler ride and a more upscale cabin. Choosing between these two is a matter of preference.

Which Is Better: Infiniti QX60 or Acura MDX?

The Acura MDX and Infiniti QX60 sit neck-and-neck in our luxury midsize SUV rankings. The Infiniti has a higher predicted reliability rating and more cargo space, but the MDX has sharper handling and more modern tech features, including standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Both vehicles have similar horsepower specs, fuel economy, and retail prices. Personal taste will be the key in choosing one over the other.

QX60 Interior

How Many People Does the QX60 Seat?

This luxury three-row SUV seats up to seven people. Power-adjustable and heated front seats, synthetic leather upholstery, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel are standard. Available upgrades include ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, and genuine leather upholstery.

Legroom is good in the first two rows. Knee- and headroom can feel a bit pinched in the second row and more so in the third. However, accessing the third row is easy thanks to the sliding second row.

QX60 and Child Car Seats

There are two complete sets of LATCH car-seat connectors for the QX60’s second-row outboard seats, as well as two tether anchors for both third-row seats.

QX60 Interior Quality

This luxury crossover's cabin has a mix of stylish materials and cheap-looking plastics. Several rivals – including the Mercedes-Benz GLE and BMW X5 – have more elegant interiors.

QX60 Cargo Space

The QX60 has 16 cubic feet of space behind the third-row seats, which is good for a luxury three-row SUV. Its 40.5 cubic feet behind the second row and 76.2 cubic feet behind the first row are typical for the segment.

QX60 Infotainment, Bluetooth, and Navigation

Standard equipment includes the InTouch infotainment system with an 8-inch screen, eight USB ports, Bluetooth, satellite radio, HD Radio, and a six-speaker stereo. A moonroof is standard too.

Available equipment includes an 8-inch touch screen, Amazon Alexa, navigation, a premium 13- or 15-speaker Bose sound system, a rear-seat entertainment system with dual 8-inch screens, and a second- and third-row moonroof.

Outside of some awkwardly placed physical controls, the Infiniti InTouch interface is relatively easy to use. However, the available navigation system features some outdated graphics.

QX60 Performance

QX60 Engine: Strong and Capable

The QX60 is only available with a 295-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine mated to a continuously variable automatic transmission. Acceleration is more than sufficient for driving around town and cruising on the freeway. The transmission operates smoothly and doesn’t cause the engine to drone, unlike many other CVTs.

QX60 Gas Mileage: Not Infinite but Still Pretty Good

The QX60 gets an EPA-estimated 20 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway, which are slightly above average for the class. Adding all-wheel drive lowers each estimate by 1 mpg.

QX60 Ride and Handling: Somewhere in the Middle

This luxury crossover gets mixed reviews for its handling. Some critics claim it is too firm, while others say it’s too soft and complain that the steering is oversensitive. Front-wheel drive comes standard; all-wheel drive is available.

Which Infiniti QX60 Model Is Right for Me?

Infiniti offers the 2020 QX60 in two trims: Pure and Luxe. All QX60s comes with a 295-horsepower V6 engine and a continuously variable automatic transmission, so the main difference between the trims is features. The Luxe trim is the better bet because it’s the only trim with available packages for adding comfort and safety features.

All-wheel drive can be added to either trim for $2,000.

Infiniti QX60 Pure

The QX60 Pure has a base MSRP of $44,350. It comes with the Infiniti InTouch infotainment system, an 8-inch screen, a six-speaker stereo, eight USB ports, HD Radio, satellite radio, Bluetooth, proximity keyless entry, push-button start, tri-zone automatic climate control, synthetic leather seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, power-adjustable front seats with heating, alloy wheels, a pre-collision warning and braking system, blind spot monitoring, and a rearview camera.  

Infiniti QX60 Luxe

Retailing for $46,150, the QX60 Luxe trim gains a 13-speaker premium Bose stereo, remote start, a heated steering wheel, and entry and exit assist for the driver’s seat. Most of the QX60’s add-ons come as packages or options.

The Essential package costs $2,900 and comes with an 8-inch touch screen, a navigation system, Amazon Alexa, leather-appointed seats, rain-sensing windshield wipers, front and rear parking sensors, and a surround-view parking camera. Note that to get any other package, you must also purchase the Essential package.

For $1,950, the ProAssist package adds more front and rear parking sensors, blind spot intervention, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, a following distance indicator, Active Trace Control, rear automatic braking, automatic high-beam headlights, and adaptive cruise control.

The Theater package costs $2,150 and features a 120-volt power outlet and a rear-seat entertainment system with two 8-inch monitors. You can also get the Sensory package. Costing $3,500, it adds a hands-free liftgate, a 15-speaker Bose stereo, a second- and third-row moonroof with a power sunshade, an air purifier, ventilated front seats, heated second-row outboard seats, larger alloy wheels, and upgraded interior seating and accent trim. Note that the Sensory package requires both the Essential and ProAssist packages.

Finally, Infiniti offers the ProActive package for $3,400. It has the same features as the ProAssist package but unlike the ProAssist, you can also pair it with the Sensory and Essential packages.

The Final Call

The 2020 Infiniti QX60 is a good luxury vehicle in a class full of great ones. It has a powerful and fuel-efficient engine, but it lacks some of the modern convenience features of rivals. Many competitors have nicer cabin materials and livelier handling too. In the competitive luxury midsize SUV class, it's best to shop around.

Don’t just take our word for it. Check out comments from some of the reviews that drive our rankings and analysis.

  • "The 2020 Infiniti QX60 is a luxurious 7-passenger crossover SUV with attractive styling, a handsome interior and a proven V6 engine aided by direct injection. The overall handling of this Tennessee-built crossover SUV is excellent, but it does not come at the expense of a comfortable ride." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "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." -- Edmunds
  • "Not as large as the massive QX80, but still capable of carrying seven passengers, the midsize 2018 Infiniti QX60 is the perfect luxury SUV for those looking for a more car-like driving experience in an easy to maneuver package. With an elegant exterior and sumptuous interior, the QX60 is distinctive enough to stand out in a crowded parking lot full of Audi and Lexus SUVs, yet not so over the top that its appearance becomes polarizing." -- Autotrader (2018)
