2015 Infiniti QX60 Review

The 2015 Infiniti QX60 boasts a spacious third row and great fuel economy estimates. However, its dull handling and low reliability rating lead it to a somewhat low ranking.

Pros & Cons

  • Adult-friendly third row
  • Great gas mileage
  • Numb handling
  • Lower reliability rating than rivals

2015 Infiniti QX60 Overview

Is the 2015 Infiniti QX60 a Good Used SUV?

The 2015 QX60 isn't for everyone, but it’s worth a look if you want a comfortable, upscale daily driver. Its performance is balanced, with decent engine power and a cushioned, composed ride. The high-end cabin is fitted with loads of features, and the third row is roomy enough for adults.

Used 2015 Infiniti QX60 Performance and Interior

The base QX60 is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine, which has adequate muscle for daily driving. Hybrid models have an electric motor paired with the V6. The standard automatic transmission can be slow to shift at high speeds. The base QX60 gets up to 21 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway, which is above average for the class. The hybrid model only improves fuel economy slightly, getting 26 mpg in the city and 28 on the highway. The QX60 strikes a good balance between ride comfort and cornering composure, though the steering feels a bit numb. Front-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is available.

Top-quality materials like genuine wood, leather, and metal line the QX60's cabin. The build quality is excellent. There's plenty of room for adults, even in the third row. As an added bonus, the third row is easy to get into and out of thanks to the sliding second-row seats. The outboard second-row seats each have a full set of LATCH child-seat connectors, while the middle second-row seat and the passenger-side third-row seat each have an additional upper tether anchor.

Standard features include tri-zone automatic climate control, a moonroof, Bluetooth, and a USB port. It's particularly easy to adjust the physical climate and audio controls, but the features that are controlled with the touch-screen infotainment system are straightforward as well. A few features are available, including navigation and a Bose premium audio system.

Should I Consider Another Used QX60?

The QX60 debuted for the 2013 model year as the Infiniti JX. In the 2014 model year, its name was changed to QX60. Aside from the changed name, there are few major differences between the older model years – though the 2016 and 2017 models have more significant updates.

Which Used Infiniti QX60 Is Right for Me?

The Infiniti QX60 is only available in one trim, and you can choose either the V6 engine or the hybrid powertrain. The hybrid powertrain doesn't significantly improve fuel economy for the added cost, so you’re better off sticking with the V6. You may want to consider finding a model with added features, especially available safety systems like the 360-degree camera.

Infiniti covers some used QX60 models with its certified pre-owned program. The Infiniti certified pre-owned warranty has three levels of coverage based on the vehicle’s age and mileage. Vehicles with less than 15,000 miles receive a six-year/75,000-mile warranty from the original new-car purchase date. Vehicles less than four years old with more than 15,000 miles receive a six-year/unlimited-mileage warranty from the original new-car purchase date. Finally, vehicles more than four years old with more than 15,000 miles receive a two-year/unlimited-mileage warranty good from the CPO purchase date. Infiniti CPO vehicles must pass a 167-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read the Infiniti warranty page carefully.

2015 Infiniti QX60 and Other SUVs to Consider

Which Is Better: 2015 Infiniti QX60 or 2015 Acura MDX?

There's a lot to like about the Acura MDX, but the QX60 is a more practical SUV overall. The MDX's third-row seats are too cramped for adults, and the infotainment system is frustrating to use. The MDX has a rough ride on broken pavement as well. However, the MDX is more athletic and has a punchier engine, which you might prefer if you want more engagement behind the wheel.

Which Is Better: 2015 Infiniti QX60 or 2015 Lexus RX 350?

As long as you can live without the third row of seats, the Lexus RX 350 is a much better choice than the QX60. It's not the most thrilling SUV to drive, but it has a cloudlike ride and one of the highest reliability ratings possible. The cabin is chic, the fit and finish is excellent, and there's ample cargo space.
