Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Infiniti QX60 is an elegant, and simple, solution for families looking for a luxury crossover.

Pros
Conservative, and classy exterior
Good standard equipment
Spacious second row
Rich and uncluttered interior

Cons
Frustrating optional packages
Advanced safety is an expensive proposition

Rear end could use a lift

For 2018, the QX60 adds Rear Door Alert, a standard feature that can remind drivers of passengers, pets, or objects possibly left behind after switching off the ignition. Sensors can detect if a rear door was opened prior to driving and can issue an alert if a rear door isn't opened at the end of the drive

PROS
Quiet, comfortable cabin makes for a soothing ride
Offers easy access to third-row seats
Smooth transmission operation adds to luxurious feel
Plush ride quality makes long trips enjoyable

CONS
Third-row legroom is tight for adults
Off-road capability isn't part of its formula
Desirable features are all extra and bundled into packages
Not as sporty as some other large luxury SUVs

The Escape is fundamentally unchanged for 2018, but there are some tweaks to the lineup and to its standard-equipment offerings.The SEL comes standard with leather-trimmed seating, a power liftgate, heated exterior mirrors, an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and LED running lights.

smooth ride,
attractive and intuitive infotainment system.

turbo engines return mediocre fuel economy.

Pros
Tough-hatch lines
Ample cargo bin
Wonderfully taut handling
Tech options aplenty
Brisk 2.0-liter acceleration

Cons
Busy, space-robbing dash
Firm seats, if you’re not into that
Not much SUV, if you’re into that
Optimistic EPA ratings
