Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 Infiniti QX60 has a rich look and excellent interior space, but it doesn't deliver the driving polish that it should.
Infiniti was fairly early to the three-row luxury crossover game with its JX, which has been continuously updated—and renamed—to become the 2017 QX60. Sharing its underpinnings with the Nissan Pathfinder, the QX60, like its less-luxurious counterpart, offers front- or all-wheel drive and a hybrid variant.

Pros
Elegant styling
Excellent third-row access
Comfortable for a family
Rear Collision Intervention safety system

Cons
Less polished on road than it should be
Infotainment lags rivals
Costly, ineffective hybrid

The 2017 Infiniti QX60 ranks 20 out of 22 Luxury Midsize SUVs. The 2017 Infiniti QX60 is the blue light special for luxury midsize 3-row SUVs, delivering a pretty good package for less money than most. It has great safety scores, an inviting list of included and optional amenities, and one of the most agreeable third-row seats you can find. But uninspiring performance and a few other hiccups cut into the QX60’s overall appeal.

Pros
Easy-to-use infotainment system
Adult-friendly third-row seats
Outstanding fuel economy

Cons
Steering feels vague

By: 
usnews.com

For 2017, the QX60 receives a revised engine with more power with no reduction in fuel efficiency. A larger multimedia screen, a hands-free liftgate and automatic high beams are now available.

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

Cons
Not as sporty as some other large luxury SUVs
Desirable features are all extra and bundled into packages
Off-road capability not part of its formula
Tight third-row legroom for adults

For 2017, the Hyundai Santa Fe returns with refreshed front and rear styling that's highlighted by new LED daytime running lights. Inside, there's a 7-inch touchscreen that's standard for even the base SE trim level and an available USB charging port for the third row. On the safety front, a 360-degree parking camera system, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and automatic emergency braking for forward collision mitigation are newly available this year.

Pros
Strong V6 engine provides quick acceleration
Plenty of standard features for the money
Interior features classy design and easy-to-use technology interfaces
Warranty coverage is generous.

Cons
Cargo capacity isn't as large as some competitors.

By:

The sharper-looking 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe is still a good value for families looking for a three-row hauler—but its powertrain is starting to show its age.
For 2017, the Hyundai Santa Fe has received a significant overhaul. The Santa Fe is the larger, three-row crossover SUV that's related to the smaller two-row Santa Fe Sport.

Pros
Better look for 2017
Still good value for money
Excellent cargo space
Standard models still well-equipped
Strong V-6

Cons
All-wheel-drive penalty is sharp
Could use newer transmission
Third-row seat space is slight, compared to rivals

By:

The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe ranks 3 out of 18 Midsize SUVs. The Hyundai Santa Fe has impressive safety, comfort, and infotainment features, and it delivers solid performance, though the Sport model's base engine is average at best. The Santa Fe's cabin is full of technology that will keep drivers and passengers safe, comfortable, and entertained.

Pros
Strong V6 engine in Santa Fe
Generous list of standard features

Cons
Weak base engine in Sport models
Underwhelming acceleration
