The 2017 Infiniti QX60 vs. the Competition

Luxury SUVs are some of the hottest properties premium brands have on offer these days, resulting in the QX60 being one of Infiniti's best-selling models. 

The QX60 is also one of the most popular dedicated seven-passenger luxury SUVs available in Canada, providing highly refined three-row comfort and convenience along with loads of cargo space. 

To help you figure out how the QX60 compares to premium-branded rivals, we put together a simple, straightforward, point-form list of key standard features and specifications from the base trim levels of a few top-selling seven-seat competitors in the QX60's class, including the Mercedes-Benz GLS, Audi Q7, Acura MDX, Volvo XC90, and Buick Enclave, therefore leaving it up to you to choose the mid-size SUV that best fits for your family's needs:

Value for money is by far one of the 2017 QX60's key standout characteristics, but don't think for a second its segment-best pricing means that it doesn't also offer impressive levels of performance, efficiency, features and interior roominess. 

Its standard V6 is one of the most formidable in this class yet its fuel economy is thriftier than most in the city and best on the highway. What's more, it's the only vehicle amongst these competitors with a combination of standard fog lamps, proximity keyless access, pushbutton start, tri-zone auto climate control, leather upholstery, a powered steering column, garage door opener, and a powered moonroof, while it also provides the most front and second-row legroom. Likewise cargo volume is equal to or better than most behind the rear seats.
