The 2020 INFINITI QX60 carries enough standard features to keep it aligned with the luxury crossover crowd, but large optional equipment packages quickly push up the price. No matter the equipment level, the QX60’s interior design feels ready for a freshening, yet there are no noteworthy changes for 2020.
Choosing Your INFINITI QX60
INFINITI offers the QX60 in just two trim levels: Pure, which starts at $45,345 including destination, and Luxe, which starts at $47,145.
The QX60 is only available with a 3.5-liter V6 engine, which generates 295 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque and can tow up to 5,000 pounds. It's fixed to a continuously variable transmission which can simulate fixed-gear ratios to vary the engine revs for a more engaging sound.
The front-wheel-drive QX60 achieves 20 miles per gallon city, 27 mpg highway, and 22 combined, according to the EPA. Those figures are reduced to 19/26/22 mpg (city/highway/combined) when equipped with INFINITI's all-wheel-drive system. AWD is offered on both trims for $2,000.
Passenger & Cargo Capacity
The QX60’s exterior size puts it on the larger end of the seven-passenger luxury crossover spectrum. The cargo area expands from 16 cubic feet behind the third row to to 40.5 cubes with the third row folded to 76.2 cubic feet with both rows folded flat. The interior delivers 41.7 inches of leg room for the second row (aided by sliding seat cushions) and 30.8 inches for the third.
The QX60 features automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, forward collision warning, and blind-spot monitoring as standard.
The Luxe trim offers additional active safety equipment through two separate packages. The Essential Package adds a surround-view monitor, while the ProAssist Package includes adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, high beam assist, and front and rear parking sensors.
The INFINITI achieves a five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA and is an IIHS Top Safety Pick.
The Pure trim features an 8-inch color touchscreen with satellite radio and Bluetooth connectivity. There are two USB ports for each of the three rows. The Luxe trim gains a 13-speaker (up from six) Bose audio system as standard. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are not compatible with the QX60 at this time.
Navigation is only available on the Luxe trim through the Essential Package, which also adds Amazon Alexa integration. The Luxe's Theater Package adds an 8-inch monitor to each of the front seat headrests, wireless headphones, and additional power outlets for $2,150.
The QX60 Pure is equipped with a moonroof, proximity entry, push button start, and tri-zone climate control. It shows off its luxury status with leatherette seating, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and gearshift knob, and heated front seats. Families will appreciate the 60/40-split second row, 50/50-split third row, and child-seat-friendly sliding second-row bench.
The Luxe trim gains a heated steering wheel, roof rails, and position memory for the driver's seat, steering wheel, and outside mirrors. From there, the newly optional packages bring additional luxuries.
The Essential Package really brings the vehicle up a notch for $2,900, adding navigation, leather seating, the surround-view camera system, and rain-sensing windshield wipers, among other things.
Heading this high up the price ladder likely means being lured into some of the offered luxuries like a leather interior and a level of autonomous motoring. Equip the 2020 INFINITI QX60 Luxe with the Essential and ProAssist Packages for a no-apologies-needed luxury crossover.
