5 Reasons To Buy
1. STANDARD, UPSCALE FEATURES
The Infinity QX60 comes with lots of standard features. That's in part because, until the 2019 model, the QX60 was only available in one trim. However, that means it's easier for you to know what you're getting, since leather seats, a moonroof, heated front seats, and a six-speaker audio system all come standard on all QX60s. Additional touches like easy access to the third row also contribute to the QX60's luxurious feel.
2. POWERFUL ENGINE
If you want a larger vehicle that still feels powerful, the QX60 is a good choice. The QX60 comes standard with a 295-horsepower V6 engine (model years 2017–2019). That means you'll have plenty of acceleration, despite the vehicle's larger size. The 3.5-liter engine gives the QX60 a 7.7-second 0–60 time, when new.
3. PLENTY OF PASSENGER SPACE
Many three-row SUVs, particularly in the crossover segment, have third rows that aren't big enough to be fully functional. That's not the case with the 2019 QX60. The third row has 30.8 inches of legroom, which is comparable to the legroom in the rear seat of a sedan.
Third-row passengers will also have 35 inches of headroom, enough for most adults to sit comfortably. In the second row, there are 41.7 inches of legroom. That means even when you're carrying seven people, everyone will have enough space.
4. AVAILABLE TECHNOLOGY
The QX60 has plenty of features to help drivers get where they're going. All models come with a back-up camera. The 2019 model comes standard with an array of driver-assist features, including forward collision warning, emergency braking, and blind-spot monitoring. These features and others, like adaptive cruise control, are available as package options on earlier models of the QX60. Just look for vehicles that have the Driver Assistance Package.
5. GOOD IN ALL WEATHER
The 2019 Infiniti QX60 is a great SUV for people in colder climates and others who are regularly navigating icy or snowy roads. It comes with standard front-wheel drive (FWD) but has AWD available on all trims. With those options, you can choose the drivetrain that best meets your needs. Optional AWD, along with standard automatic headlights and standard fog lights will give you peace of mind in all weather.

The Infiniti QX50 is a luxurious small SUV that has seating for five people. The QX50 was redesigned in 2019 after a hiatus during the 2018 model year. The 2019 QX50 comes standard with a turbo four-cylinder engine that produces 268 horsepower. Prior to that, model years 2013 to 2017 came standard with a 325-horsepower V6.

The Toyota Highlander has seating for seven to eight passengers, depending on whether you opt for a bench seat or bucket seats in the second row. Although it can hold more people than some other mid-sized SUVs, the third row in the Highlander is considered small, with 27.7 inches of legroom on the 2019 model. The 2019 Highlander (part of the generation that launched in 2014) comes standard with a 185-horsepower four-cylinder engine, but a 295-horsepower V6 is standard on all but the base trim. The Highlander is available in AWD. Leather-trimmed seats and a moonroof are available options.
The Honda Pilot also seats seven to eight passengers, depending on the configurations of the third row. In the Pilot, the third row is comfortable enough for adults, with 31.9 inches of legroom. The latest generation of the Pilot, which launched in 2016, is available with front-wheel or all-wheel drive and comes standard with a 280-horsepower V6 engine. The Pilot is available in five trims, which start off fairly basic. To get a moonroof you'll need to opt for the mid-range SE trim, while leather is only available on the two highest trim levels.
The Bottom Line
The Infiniti QX60 is a great choice for a practical SUV. It's a perfect fit if you're looking for space and performance but also want luxury. Standard features like leather seats, a moonroof, and driver-assist features on the 2019 model add to the Infiniti QX60's appeal.
