2017 INFINITI QX60 vs. Its Competition

2017 Infiniti QX60
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

The Infiniti QX60 squares off best against the Acura MDX, a model that isn't as stylish and has inferior third-row access.

However, the MDX delivers more driving excitement and boasts a superb optional all-wheel drive system.

The QX60 undercuts rivals like the Audi Q7 and Volvo XC90 in terms of pricing, but the gap isn't quite as big as you might expect.

Buick and Lincoln haven't been traditional Infiniti rivals, but their Enclave and MKT, respectively, may have what it takes to sway some buyers.

The Enclave feels especially nice and it offers a great value alternative to the QX60.

As Infiniti has learned with the QX60 Hybrid, this segment doesn't respond all that well to hybrids—but the Toyota Highlander Hybrid stands out as a successful, if less luxurious, high mpg competitor.

Quick Specs
6.8
The 2017 Infiniti QX60 has a rich look and excellent interior space, but it doesn't deliver the driving polish that it should.
7.5
The 2017 Acura MDX is one of the best-driving, most technologically advanced three-row luxury crossovers, and a new Sport Hybrid model and active suspension should only add to that reputation.
8.0
The 2017 Audi Q7 gets a rakish new sport-wagon look, a finely detailed, tech-savvy interior, and serious chassis advancements underneath—including a dramatic weight loss, available rear-wheel steering, and a plug-in hybrid version.
7.2
The 2017 Buick Enclave is a good-looking SUV for families and one of the better-aging GM cars in recent memory.
6.0
The styling may be polarizing, but the comfortable, spacious interior and muscular turbo V-6 still make the MKT an outside pick against luxury crossovers.
7.3
The 2017 Volvo XC90 is comfortable, capable, and only whispers its virtues—reinterpreting the Volvo brand as quiet sophistication in comfort, style, and efficiency.
