Interior

Flexible seating is one the 2018 Infiniti QX60 excellence. The second row sliding 5.5 inches forward and back, allowing passengers to in and out the third row easily, even with a child seat mounted in the second row. The third row offers ample headroom for 6-foot passengers, but the leg room is a bit tight. The second and third row seats also recline.

With a rich accent of wood, leather and metal accents, the 2018 Infiniti QX60 offers a classy interior in every way. Unfortunately, the QX60 touchscreen interface is somewhat out of date, not as large and lacking in features of smartphone app integration found in some of the newer rival systems. But the combination of touch screen, physical button and rotary knob greatly simplify common tasks.

Although the 2018 Infiniti QX60 offers plenty of space for passengers, but the maximum cargo capacity is only 76.5 cubic feet with second and third row seats folded. It’s not bad, but some rivals will give you more space, like the Buick Enclave or Acura MDX. The QX60 also has only 15.8 cubic feet of space behind the third row seat.
