High-tech driver assistance is an important selling point for the 2020 Infiniti QX60. First off, it comes standard with many common safety features. The QX60 then offers technology, such as automatic reverse braking, that is fairly rare. Infiniti also keeps you insulated from the rigors of everyday life with the QX60’s refined cabin.
The 2020 Infiniti QX60 is a midsize luxury SUV that seats seven. This year, Pure and Luxe trim levels are available with a standard V6 engine and a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Front-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is optional for both trims. The QX60 competes against SUVs such as the Acura MDX and Buick Enclave.
The QX60 carries over unchanged for 2020.
More than 200 inches long, the 2020 Infiniti QX60 has a relatively lean look thanks to its tightly skinned body. Flowing front fenders and streamlined headlights add a sleek, aggressive appearance up front. To unify the design, lines also roll back across the QX60’s flanks and connect with the wraparound taillights.
High-intensity signature-style headlights are standard with LED fog lamps, LED taillights, heated power-adjustable power-folding mirrors, mirror-mounted turn signals, a power moonroof, a power rear liftgate, front door-handle courtesy lights and 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels. Options include a panoramic moonroof, a hands-free liftgate, roof rails, mirrors with reverse tilt-down functionality and 20-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.
The 2020 QX60 gives off a sporty vibe in the cabin. For that, credit goes to a wraparound dashboard with a prominent hood over the instrument panel. A broad center stack with precision-look switchgear also splits the dash vertically. It’s a bit like you’re sitting in the cockpit of a plane. In the second row, a 60/40-split folding bench is standard. The foldable third-row seats are split 50/50. There’s 16 cubic feet of cargo capacity with no seats folded, 40.5 cubic feet with the second row down and 76.2 cubic feet with all rear seats folded.
Standard features include leatherette upholstery, an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, a six-way power-adjustable front passenger seat, a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel and tri-zone automatic climate control. The QX60 offers optional equipment such as leather seats, climate-controlled front seats, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel and maple wood accents.
The standard engine for the 2020 Infiniti QX60 is a 3.5-liter V6 that delivers 295 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. A CVT and front-wheel drive also are standard. All-wheel drive is available for both trims.
The QX60 achieves fuel economy ratings of 20/27 mpg city/highway with front-wheel drive.
Unruffled in daily driving, the QX60 provides a comfortable ride and is more nimble than you might expect from a three-row SUV.
The 2020 QX60 comes with an 8-inch infotainment display, a console-mounted controller, a six-speaker sound system, Bluetooth, satellite radio and multiple USB ports. Infiniti supplies infotainment options such as a navigation system, 13- or 15-speaker Bose audio systems and a rear-seat theater package with dual 8-inch drop-down screens.
Standard safety features include automatic forward emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection and a rearview camera. The QX60 is further available with adaptive cruise control, cornering assistance, lane departure warning, lane-keeping assistance, moving-object detection, a surround-view camera system and front and rear parking sensors. Blind-spot intervention and backup collision intervention are optional as well. The first can guide you back into your own lane if you try changing to another with a vehicle in your blind spot. The second is basically automatic reverse emergency braking.
