Driven: Infiniti QX60


Infiniti’s best-selling vehicle in the U.S., the QX60, has been updated with a new design and refined driving dynamics

The Infiniti QX60 is a three-row crossover redesigned for 2022 with a new 9-speed transmission and added improvements for more comfortable driving. Americans can’t seem to get enough of roomy SUVs, and the QX60 is Infiniti’s top selling vehicle, competing in a crowded field. But while some challenger brands attempt to lure buyers with copycat designs, gaping maws, or sharp, polarising lines, Infiniti aims for streamlined, understated elegance.

Car Design News had the opportunity to drive the QX60 in California’s wine country, on a route that stretched from Napa to the Northern California coast. While Infiniti (and parent company Nissan) strives to introduce several electric vehicles by 2030, this QX60 is powered by a 295 hp, 3.5-litre petrol V6 — and endangered species that nevertheless provides more than enough power to tackle winding country roads and highways alike.
