Expert Quotes:

...the cabin proves it intends to be a luxury player with an eye-pleasing layout covered in soft-touch plastics where necessary, and wood trim where possible.
Winding Road

The [QX60] is all about having your cake and eating it, too. Want family-friendly features in your car but don't want to sacrifice style or drivability? The [QX60] mostly accomplishes both.

From the start, the 2014 Infiniti QX60 was designed to offer easier access to its third row than any other seven-seat vehicle on the market (except the Nissan Pathfinder, which uses essentially the same structure). As a family vehicle, it maximizes interior volume, convenience, sand safety, with comfortable, well-bolstered front seats and space for real-world adults in the second row.

That second seat slides 5.5 inches forward or back on tracks, letting all three rows of occupants negotiate the best blend of legroom and comfort. With the second row fully to the rear, there's class-leading legroom for rear-seat passengers. Sliding it forward makes the third row more hospitable for gangly teens. We did note, by the way, that if you choose the optional seat-cooling feature for the two front seats, the space underneath is entirely filled with the hardware--meaning there's no room left for the second-row passengers' feet.

Climbing into the third row is eased by the 14 inches of space between the door opening and the second-row seat back when it's folded forward. The second-row seat bottom cushion also articulates to tilt up when folded. Compared to the competition, it really is easier to clamber in and out--though like all third rows, it's best suited to kids and agile teenagers. Like many third rows, the cushion is low to the floor and older passengers may find the knees-up riding position uncomfortable for the long haul.

Infiniti salespeople will likely get used to demonstrating the QX60's family trick: the second-row seat can be folded forward to give access to the third row even if a child-safety seat remains strapped into it via Isofix anchors. No other luxury three-row crossover does this, Infiniti says--and grateful parents will likely value that ability highly.

The back of the second seat is split 60/40, and even the third row is split 50/50. The QX60 provides more total cargo room with both rows folded down, at 150 cubic feet, than either the Acura MDX or the Audi Q7. There's 15.8 cubic feet of space behind the third row, as much as a decent-sized compact sedan's trunk.

Conclusion

The 2014 Infiniti QX60 (nee JX) touts its third-row access, and justifiably so, but it's also got all the features and options you'd expect in a near-luxury brand.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
