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

By:

For 2018, the Mazda CX-9 delivers a handful of small but useful changes. Standard on all models is Mazda's G-Vectoring Control, a new electronic system that the company says improves steering and stability in turns. All trims offer new standard safety features and driver aids, ranging from blind-spot monitoring on Sport trims to front parking sensors on upper trims.

PROS
With sharp, modern style inside and out, the CX-9 feels richer than its cost
Sporty handling makes it fun to drive
Comfortable interior remains quiet on the highway
Top-level Signature trim is on par with some luxury-brand competitors

CONS
Third-row seats aren't especially accommodating
Cargo capacity isn't as generous as in competitors

By:
