Upscale, But Intuitive. Last year’s full redesign for the INFINITI QX60 saw the midsize SUV benefit from a far more upscale design. The same look carries into the 2023 model year, which is a good thing in our eyes. The 2023 QX60 features a restrained, but high-end look that won’t be mistaken for anything but a luxury SUV.

The cabin has the same upscale focus but isn’t as restrained as the exterior. The way the dashboard flows into the transmission tunnel and the air vents hug the curved dashboard result in a stunning cabin. But we’re also fans of how logically placed all the controls are. The dashboard features intuitive controls that are easy to reach from the driver’s seat.

Family-Ready Cabin. Unlike most luxury SUVs in the segment, the QX60 is one of the few options to come with three rows of seats as standard. Having a standard third row makes the QX60 far more family-friendly than most of the other available midsize SUVs.

The QX60 has front seats that are just as comfortable as they are luxurious. They offer a generous amount of support and have well-cushioned bottoms to remain comfortable on long drives. The second row has similarly comfortable seats, though the majority of trims come with a bench-style seat. Disappointingly, only the high-end Autograph trim comes with captain’s chairs. It’s a shame because the seats offer a wide range of movement and are nearly as comfortable as the front seats.

Adults will find the QX60’s third row uncomfortable with only 28 inches of legroom and a tight amount of headroom. Kids and small teens should fare much better. Cargo space is competitive for the segment, as the QX60 has 75.4 cubic feet of total cargo space. With the third row in place, the SUV only has 14.5 cubic feet of space, making it a strict two-row SUV for drivers looking to go on a road trip.

Attractive Tech Features. Despite having a starting price tag that undercuts the majority of its competitors, the QX60 comes with a great list of tech features. The dashboard features a generous 12.3-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay, but Android users are stuck with wired Android Auto. Shoppers that stick to the base model also get a wireless charging pad, Wi-Fi hot spot, nine audio speakers, Bluetooth, satellite radio, and an HD Radio.

The QX60’s roster of available equipment includes a 17-speaker Bose audio system, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, navigation, and a 10.8-inch head-up display. These features may not be as high-end as some rivals, but they help the SUV feel plenty upscale.

Every one of INFINITI’s QX60s comes with a lengthy list of standard features. One of the more impressive safety features of the QX60 includes the available ProPilot Assist system that can act as a semi-autonomous system on the highway. A more advanced version of the system that utilizes the navigation system to automatically slow down for upcoming curves is also available.

Pathfinder-Derived V6 Engine. Some people will compare the QX60 with the Nissan Pathfinder, which makes sense. Both SUVs share the same platform, features, and powertrain. The latter includes a 3.5-liter V6 engine and a nine-speed automatic transmission. The engine makes 295 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque, which is an impressive amount for a standard engine.

Most midsize SUVs in the segment are available with turbocharged four-cylinder engines as standard but can be equipped with powerful V8 engines in high-performance models. INFINITI only offers the QX60 with a V6 engine, which could disappoint some looking for the better fuel economy figures that a turbo-four brings or the performance of a V8.

With smooth power delivery and a zero-to-60-mph time in the mid-seven-second range, we think most drivers will be happy with the QX60’s V6 engine. The only downside is fuel economy, which is rated at up to 23 mpg combined. The good news is that the SUV can tow up to 6,000 pounds.

Final Thoughts. The 2023 INFINITI QX60 may not have the pizzazz, cutting-edge tech features, or brand recognition as some of its rivals, but it fits in with the luxury segment. With its handsome styling, upscale cabin, generous list of standard features, and roomy seats, the QX60 is more than just a value-oriented choice.

The Genesis GV80 feels like a special SUV with its stunning look, refined driving dynamics, opulent cabin, and available twin-turbo V6 engine.

The BMW X5 is a performance-oriented SUV with an optional V8 engine with mega performance, a deluxe interior, athletic handling, and high-tech features.
