Overall Rating


For 2019, the Infiniti QX60 is available in only 2 trim levels which are; PURE and LUXE. It still vaunts a supple and comfortable ride quality and a commodious cabin, and now also features better driver-assistance specifications. With a base price of $44,350, it goes up against the likes of Acura MDX, Lexus RX 350L, and the Buick Enclave.

2019 Infiniti QX60 Features

The line-up for the 2019 Infiniti QX60 is unfortunately short. It is available only in two trim levels which are PURE and LUXE. The PURE is the base trim which costs $44,350. As it has to live up to its high price tag, the PURE trim is well-equipped. It includes automatic Xenon headlights, LED fog lights, 18-inch wheels, a sunroof, a power liftgate, 8-way power-adjustable front seats with heated functionality, an 8-inch touchscreen display paired with a 6-speaker audio system, tri-zone automatic climate control, simulated leather upholstery, and some driver aids.

Not impressed yet? Then the LUXE adds more to this list. It will cost you $46,150 to fetch you the additional features. Those are; an upgraded audio system which is a 13-speaker Bose audio system, roof rails, memory setting for the driver’s seat, heated steering wheel, and remote engine start. Another important point to take note of is that all the additional packages like the Essential, Theater, ProAssist, Sensory, Proactive, Limited, and tire package are available only on the LUXE trim. The 2019 Infiniti QX60 is available both as an FWD and AWD variant, giving the buyer the option to choose the drivetrain that best suits his/her needs.

Which Trim should you buy?

You can see for yourself that the LUXE trim doesn’t add a whole lot to the existing list of options of the PURE trim. Both have the same engine as standard and both are available in the AWD drivetrain option as well. However, the additional packages which we spoke of earlier are only available on the 2019 Infiniti QX60 LUXE which is why it is the more desired trim and our recommendation as well. Moreover, it is available at an additional cost of $1,800 only and would not burn a hole in your pocket.

2019 Infiniti QX60 Engine and Performance

7.8/10

The engine on the offer on the 2019 Infiniti QX60 remains just the one 3.5L naturally aspirated V6. As far as its performance goes, it sits in the middle of the 7-seater crossover segment. Infiniti has built the QX60 in such a way that it mends its way through the cities and highways with agility but remains calm and composed otherwise. It doesn’t produce heaps of power but it is enough to maneuver a car of its dimensions, easily.

The 2019 Infiniti QX60’s horsepower is rated at 290hp and it is the most torquey vehicle churning out 270lb.-ft. The CVT is the only transmission option available. CVT’s are generally swift, giving the car a smooth and quiet acceleration and this is exactly what happens with the QX60 as well. The upshifts and downshifts are smooth and are timed very well. However, it takes away the thrill and engaging driving experience. Both the trims are available in the AWD option with an FWD drivetrain fitted as standard. We feel that the AWD that bears a $2,000 premium, adds a bit more excitement to the driving experience but it affects the fuel economy a bit. 

The 2019 Infiniti QX60 sprints from 0-60 mph in 7.1 seconds, which is also the segment standard. However, it clocks 16 seconds to the quarter-mile mark, making it the slowest SUV in the segment.

All the cars mentioned above have a V6 engine as standard and have almost identical displacements. The 2019 Buick Enclave’s engine produces over 300 horses but it’s still not the fastest. The 2019 Acura MDX is the fastest off the line to 60mph. It takes only 6.3 seconds to achieve that and it completes a quarter-mile in 14.8 seconds, which in all seriousness is impressive for a 7-seater. While the 2019 Lexus RX350L and Buick have similar timings as the Infiniti in the acceleration test, they take a notable lead in the quarter-mile run. 

How well does the 2019 Infiniti QX60 handle?

The steering doesn’t exactly have a great feel to it. It feels like the wheels are trying hard to respond to the steering input which results in a slight lag. There’s lots and lots of body roll. The strut-type front and multi-link rear type suspension are not able to do their job properly. However the car with its full capacity, the suspension performs much better. 

The AWD option improves the ride quality by a certain factor but its off-road performance is subpar. We recommend you rather stay on-road. With the CVT, the car is fairly easy to handle. Being a car of big proportions, it is difficult to navigate through tight corners. While you expect an SUV in its segment to be off-road friendly, the 2019 Infiniti QX60 fails to impress with its capabilities and is something that the brand can work on with the upcoming models.

Braking Performance

The brakes on the 2019 Infiniti QX60 play a major role in terms of safety. With automatic emergency braking now as standard, it is safer than before. Both the brake rotors are 12+ inches, 12.6, and 12.1 inches at the front and rear to be precise. The response is persistently good, which is evident in its halting distance of 120ft when decelerating from the 60 MPH mark. Panic braking situations bring about nose dips but braking distances are better than most of its competitors in this segment.

The 2019 Acura MDX is the lightest of the 4 cars mentioned above which does help aid its performance and it takes 116ft when coming to a halt. Weight has a negative effect on the braking distance but the Infiniti still manages to do better than the 2019 Enclave that takes 134ft. While the Buick’s brake size is not yet known, the 2019 Lexus RX350L sports the largest rotors that measure 12.9 and 13.3 at the front and rear, respectively.

2019 Infiniti QX60 Fuel Economy

7.1/10

As for the year 2019, the hybrid version has been discontinued which means the Infiniti QX60 is no longer the tree-huggerit used to be. The only option to consider now is the 3.5L V6. The figures given in the below table are for the standard FWD drivetrain. With a fuel economy of 20mpg in the city, 27mpg on the highway, and a combined fuel economy of 22mpg, it is not impressive. The AWD option does worse with fuel figures falling a notch across the board. However, its fuel tank of 19.5-gallons is the most voluminous unit on offer and helps directly in averaging an impressive combined range of 429 miles.

The 2019 Infiniti QX60’s rivals have similar fuel economies thanks to the similar-sized V6 engines. Only the 2019 Buick Enclave does worse than the QX60 in this matter averaging 21 MPG. As far as fuel tank capacities are concerned, there’s no considerable differentiation. All of them have 19-gallon fuel tanks with minimal difference. However, the car with the best driving range is the 2019 Acura MDX and manages to cover a combined distance of 448 miles, while the Lexus and Buick manage 422 and 399 miles, respectively.

2019 Infiniti QX60 Interior

7.9/10

The 2019 Infiniti QX60 is the perfect 7-seater crossover if you’re looking for a quiet and comfy cabin experience. The tri-zone automatic climate control is one of the best in the segment and adds to the relaxation. Speaking of relaxation, the leather upholstered seats are wonderful and offer much-needed comfort. There’s plenty of headroom and legroom in the first 2 rows of seats but the 3rd row, however, is a little cramped. On the flip side, accessing the third row is hassle-free which is something that the 2019 Infiniti QX60’s rivals are not able to achieve.

The dashboard, center console, and the overall design of the 2019 Infiniti QX60’s interior are luxurious. It definitely earns some brownie points for that. But that is only for the looks. The materials used are not of great quality. These materials include soft-touch wood and leather surfaces but a few pieces can be found in its sibling the 2019 Nissan Pathfinder as well. This prevents the 2019 Infiniti QX60 from standing out from its fellow competitors.

All three competitors provide a third row of seats and can accommodate 7 passengers each. The 2019 Lexus RX 350L has minimum space for rear seat occupants and feels restricted and constrained. It also falls short on cargo space and has a total trunk volume of 6.2 cubic feet. The car with the best cargo space behind the third row of seats is the 2019 Enclave with over 23 cu-ft of space.

Standout interior features:

  • 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat and 6-way power-adjustable passenger’s seat
  • Tri-zone automatic climate control
  • Synthetic leather upholstery
  • Heated front seats
  • Ventilated front seats (LUXE)
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel with heated functionality
  • 60/40 split-folding 2nd-row seats and 50/50 split-folding 3rd-row seats

What’s there to keep you entertained?

Both the trims of the 2019 Infiniti QX60 get the same 8.0-inch touchscreen display. The PURE trims get features like a 6-speaker audio system, 3 USB charging ports, Bluetooth connectivity with voice activation, AM/FM/CD audio, and HD Radio.

The LUXE trim amplifies a few of the features and gets all of the features that are there on the PURE. It comes equipped with an excellent 13-speaker Bose audio system, it has a push-button start availability, and an additional 120 V power outlet which is also optional.

The 8.0-inch screen is intuitive and responsive. One major downside this infotainment system has is the unavailability of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

Standout infotainment features:

  • 8.0-inch touchscreen display
  • 6-speaker audio system (PURE trim)
  • 13-speaker Bose audio system (LUXE trim)
  • AM/FM/HD Radio
  • Bluetooth with voice activation
  • 3 USB charging ports

2019 Infiniti QX60 Exterior

8.0/10

Infiniti has styled the 2019 QX60 with sophistication in mind. The car doesn’t scream SUV or is not sporty looking either but its subtle styling is surely attractive. The big grille in the front with a chrome Infiniti logo in the middle, LED daytime running headlights, LED fog lights and a simplistic hood comprise the front fascia. The side profile looks like an estate on steroids. Its long profile of over 200 inches and a ground clearance of 6.5 inches characterize the look. There are some curvy body lines running over the fenders and it also has chrome accents below the windows which run up the window line in the back; a nice touch indeed. 

The 2019 Infiniti QX60 PURE trim is fitted with 18-inch alloys and the LUXE trim has an option of 20-inch wheels. Roof rails are standard on the LUXE trim only while a sunroof is standard on both. The rear end is just as good-looking as the rest of the car. LED taillights, rear lip spoiler, body-colored rear bumper, and single exhaust outlet are the highlights of the rear profile.

In terms of dimensions, the Infiniti QX60 is 200.1 inches long, 77.2 inches wide, and 68.6 inches tall. Despite having a ground clearance of 6.5 inches, the off-roading prowess of the SUV seems questionable. It weighs 4,390 lbs and sports a wheelbase of 114.2 inches.

The 2019 Lexus RX 350L, however, has the most ground clearance which is over 8 inches and is also the heaviest vehicle in the segment at 4,464 lbs. The Acura on the other hand is the smallest car in comparison but continues to look muscular and brawny.

Some of the features of the 2019 Infiniti QX60 are;

  • LED daytime running headlights
  • LED fog lights
  • Power liftgate
  • 18-inch alloy wheels
  • Shark fin antenna
  • Sunroof

2019 Infiniti QX60 Safety

9.1/10

Overall, the 2019 Infiniti QX60 has done exceptionally well in its crash tests. It earned a full 5-star rating from the NHTSA and the IIHS has given it an overall rating of “Good”. Both scores represent top-notch performance and are the highest possible ratings. The QX60’s headlights however didn’t qualify and have been given a “Poor” rating. However, in all other aspects, the SUV upholds the utmost reliability and dependability. The introduction of the blind-spot monitor and automatic emergency braking system as standard, help in improving the safety standards.

Standout safety features:

  • Forward collision warning
  • Forward automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection
  • Blind-spot monitoring
  • Rear cross-traffic alert
  • Lane departure warning
  • Lane keep assist
  • Surround-view parking camera system with moving object detection
  • Blindspot intervention
  • Backup collision intervention
  • Front and rear parking sensors
  • Adaptive cruise control

6.5/10

2019 Infiniti QX60 vs 2019 Acura MDX

Both SUVs, the Acura and Infiniti, head towards sophistication and composure. If you’re looking to buy an SUV that remains refined and premium, then these two should be on your list. The 2019 Acura MDX is a better value for money according to us. It includes more safety features than the 2019 Infiniti QX60 and in terms of driving experience, the Acura proves to be better with its improved stability and quick performance. 

2019 Infiniti QX60 vs 2019 Lexus RX 350L

The 2019 RX 350L doesn’t offer the 7-seater option as standard. You’ll be able to have that option as you go higher the trim levels. While the Infiniti does get an ascendancy in passengers, its cargo space is also better than the Lexus. In all other aspects, they are eerily similar, both the SUVs have V6 engines and almost identical performance figures and fuel economy and it is difficult to make a differentiation amongst them in the aspect. The Lexus, however, is quite a looker and definitely has an upper hand in terms of style.

2019 Infiniti QX60 vs 2019 Buick Enclave

The 2019 Buick Enclave is a massive car. Its dimensions are superior to all of its competitors. It offers better interior space and cargo space than the 2019 Infiniti QX60. Its powertrain feels all the more potent and offers an unmatched driving experience. However, it has a below-average fuel economy, a problem that Infiniti also suffers from partially. By performing marginally better in each aspect, the Buick is the better choice amongst the two.

2019 Infiniti QX60 Final Verdict

If you are trying to find the answer to the question, is the 2019 Infiniti QX60 a good car, we feel it is not a stand-out performer in the 7-seater crossover segment. It proudly sits in the middle of the pack offering good value for your money and delivers good all-around performance boasting a luxuriant and capacious cabin. However, it suffers from its internalized blemishes like A few below-average fuel economy, constrained cargo space, and underwhelming driving experience. Though the 2019 Infiniti QX60 can make for a smart and practical buy, we would rather go for the 2019 Acura MDX over it.
