Already having been a great crossover vehicle, Infiniti’s QX60 has received some minor upgrades for the 2016 model year.
Upgrades to the QX60 include a revised fascia, improved insulation for reduced cabin noise and an updated steering and suspension systems to improve handling and performance. For 2016, Infiniti has emphasized improving the QX60’s performance, and it shows.
In previous years, the QX60, despite having many attractive features to offer, had fallen a bit short in connecting the driver with the ride.
Reviewers noted that the QX60’s handling left a lot to be desired and Infiniti listened, fitting this year’s QX60 with an improved steering and suspension for a more responsive ride.
The QX60’s biggest selling point however, is its interior. When looking for a spacious crossover that has plenty of legroom for up to seven passengers, the QX60 should be on the top of your list. Its comfortable, spacious ride is its best feature and now with added noise-canceling insulation, the QX60 is remarkably quiet. Additionally, the QX60’s roomy interior is easy to navigate through — the second row seats fold to allow for ease of access to the third row.
Much like the QX60’s revised exterior, which includes an updated fascia and end, you will find its interior to be clean-lined and modern. For the 2016 model year, the QX60’s interior has received some minor upgrades such as added padding on the dashboard and refined stitching throughout that give the QX60 a more upscale appearance. Additionally, the 2016 QX60 also comes with several standard features, which include, but are not limited to: power rear liftgate, leather-appointed seats, moonroof, three USB charging ports, RearView Monitor, Infiniti Intelligent Key, push to start button ignition, Bluetooth, MP3 playback capability, AUX input, seven-inch color vehicle information display, Infiniti Vehicle Immobilizer System, RearView Monitor, a six-speaker audio system, power rear liftgate and heated front seats.
When toting around up to seven passengers, safety is of the upmost importance. According to government crash tests, the 2016 Infiniti QX60 has earned a five out of five stars as an overall score. Side crash tests for both front and rear seats have also earned a five out of five rating.
As for the QX60’s performance gear, it is fitted with a 3.5-liter V6 engine that boasts 265 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque. For a car of it’s class, the QX60 has a decent fuel economy of 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.
For 2016, Infiniti has given the QX60 a refresh both inside and out. To improve handling, which was one QX60’s previous shortcomings, Infiniti revised its suspension and steering systems. However, you just can’t beat the QX60’s comfort and space as it provides plenty of wiggle room for up to seven passengers. The 2016 QX60 is a remarkably quiet and safe ride wrapped in a modern and sleek exterior.
With the 2016 QX60, you can say goodbye to the minivan option and say hello to a much more stylish ride with all the practicality you may need.
The MSRP for the 2016 Infiniti QX60 is $44,400.
