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:

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

The 2018 Kia Sorento ranked #2 in Midsize SUVs. Currently the Kia Sorento has a score of 8.6 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 26 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Spacious interior with high-quality materials
User-friendly infotainment system and controls
Above-average fuel economy from four-cylinder engines
Quiet, comfortable ride

Cons
Less cargo space than most

By:

If you’re looking for a capable, convenient, and comfortable two- or three-row-crossover conveyance, the Kia Sorento is a solid choice. Once you’ve settled on the Sorento, however, the choices don’t end there. Seating for either five or seven, three engines, and both front- and all-wheel-drive variants mean there’s a Sorento for every taste.

Pros
Competent road manners,
Competent road manners,
attractive packaging.

Cons
Limited third-row access,

The 2018 Kia Sorento ticks all the crossover-SUV boxes, especially in turbo-4 form.

Pros
Upscale feel
Cabin is solid, quiet
Turbo-4’s responsive tune
Well-controlled ride

Cons
Second-row seats need more support
Turbo-4? No third row
Third-row seat has slim space
