The 2018 Infiniti QX60 with its comfortable and roomy cabin is a simple yet elegant solution for families in search of a luxury crossover. There shouldn’t be any major changes to the 2018 Infinity QX60 from its previous model with it being a carry-over model.
The Infiniti QX60 underwent some major changes in the 2016 release of the model, undergoing both visual as well as mechanical updates. The key competitors and straightaway rivals for the 2018 Infiniti QX60 would be the BMW X5, Volvo XC60 and Acura MDX.
2018 Infiniti QX60 – Conservative and Classy Design
The design is marked with conservative and classy exterior and a rich and uncluttered interior. Its big doors facilitate easy entry and exit; particularly that one in the third row and its big hatch is just truly fantastic in swallowing gear. The materials used are indeed of supreme quality and provide fabulous comforting experience. Not depending much on trends and gimmicks the 2018 Infiniti QX60 originally looks good- both inside and out. It is ideally suited for a luxurious and a comfortable ride, just as one would expect from a good crossover.
Moreover, the convenience level is right up there as well. Although it looks akin to the Nissan Pathfinder from the point of view of space but not quite the same from the finishing aspect. Even the base versions are well-equipped with leather-finishing. Although Front-wheel drive is standard, however; all-wheel drive is also available on the QX60 for cold-weather states. The 2018 Infinity Q60 can potentially hold 15.8 cubic feet of cargo which is quite a decent capacity. It is endowed with the capability to tow up to 5,000 pounds if and when equipped properly.
The 2018 Infiniti QX6 is well-endowed with a moonroof, 18-inch wheels, keyless ignition, Bluetooth connectivity, power liftgate, USB port, leather upholstery, an 8.0-inch touchscreen for infotainment and power-adjustable heated front seats. In order to be equipped with further features, one would need to go with the Premium and Premium Plus Packages.
The Premium package has a remote start, heated steering wheel, 13-speaker Bose stereo and memory seats. The Premium Plus adds navigation and a surround-view camera system on top of the Premium package.
As far as safety features are concerned, the Infiniti QX60 comes standard with traction and stability control systems, airbags and a rear-view camera. A surround-view camera system is there as option as well. In an optional rear-seat entertainment package there are dual 8.0-inch screens for second-row riders. The driver assistance package includes front and rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitors, rear automatic emergency braking and adaptive cruise control.
The deluxe package goes all the way with an uprated 15-speaker Bose stereo, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, power-adjustable third row, 20-inch wheels, a motion-sensing power liftgate, active lane control, automatic high beams and maple wood accents.
