The upcoming 2020 Infiniti QX60 is a practical combination of style, safety, and usefulness. Perfect for long distance travels, with a large and quiet cabin, this 7-passengers SUV is a sheer class. With the new model, Nissan delivers significant improvement in the interior and exterior design. Also, third-row seats are now easily accessible and the smooth transmission operation adds to the luxurious feel.
The redesign will definitely help this premium crossover to keep up with growing competition. Other models in this segment that might be interesting are Acura MDX, Buick Encore, or Lexus RX 350.
2020 Infiniti QX60 Redesign
The Infiniti QX60 generally keeps the elegant and exquisite shape that still look quite amazing. Some of the exterior features are added, the interior is notably upgraded, and the overall comfort is on a higher level. The profile is sprinkled by chrome strips and the roofline slanted towards the rear end. You may think that’s a little bit too aggressive, but these days it’s a three-row growing trend. The tailgate ends in the rear, making a very elegant and gentle curve. The very spacious interior comes with all kinds of knobs and switches but effectively arranged and easy to find.
The infotainment knob is on the central part of the dash, alongside the actual analog clock. A little bit of past era technology, just to break the monotony in this crossover. Furthermore, new Infiniti QX60 comes with heated outside mirror, heated front seat and power-adjustable driver seat for maximum comfort. All seats are upholstered with soft and tender synthetic leather to match-up with this overall posh interior.
Changes On The New 2020 Infiniti QX60
For 2020 Infiniti QX60 model, the Japanese automaker has prepared new safety equipment. That will include blind spot monitoring, forward emergency braking, and predictive forward-collision warning. Also, Infiniti’s ProAssist package is available with a lane-departure warning and assist, adaptive cruise control and rear sonar system. The 2020 Infiniti Qx60 will be accessible in two trim levels and in the front-wheel or all-wheel drive. Infiniti Pure is the base model but with a lot more features and luxury equipment. Luxe is the highest trim level, and we will give a more detailed description of both later in this review. The base version will have 18-inch wheels, five USB ports, and 8-0 inch infotainment display.
Comfort is the main word when it comes to the new model. In the front, you will have a lot of headroom and pretty decent elbow and shoulder room: The central armrest is broad and nicely designed. The second row now comes with more legroom and can be slid back 5.5 inches. The only problem of the second row is not so big headroom space. The third row provides more than enough space to put some of the chubby friends back and all can enjoy the ride.
