The 2018 INFINITI QX60: Performance And Space


Crossovers and SUVs are ubiquitous these days. More practical than a sedan, and available in a full range of price points, there is a utility vehicle seemingly for everyone. If a higher-end crossover with tons of space is more your speed, take a closer look at the 2018 INFINITI QX60, now in Victoria's favourite showroom at Campus Infiniti.

From cheap compact crosses to jumbo luxury SUVs with 3rd row seating for the nanny; the spectrum is wide. For those seeking a crossover with an emphasis on performance and space, there is the INFINITI QX60.  

INFINITI is well known for quality vehicles and the three-row, AWD QX60 is no exception. Priced below the $50k mark, it's a good transition vehicle for those flirting with the idea of a luxury vehicle. It boasts the quality and many of the features found in an import, but at a domestic price.

With only one model available in Canada so far, it's an easy decision, since it is packed with features. A 3.5L engine that produces an impressive 295 hp puts it firmly into import territory. INFINITI 's Intelligent All-Wheel Drive turns that power into an exhilarating driving experience. It comes standard with 18-inch, triple 5-spoke aluminium-alloy wheels, but an upgrade to the Deluxe Touring Package will see you riding high on a set of 20s.

The QX60 comes loaded with features usually only available on the highest trims of other vehicles, such as LED daytime running lights, LED fog lights and LED rear brake lights. Headlamps are automatic-on/off High Intensity Discharge bi-functional Xenon. Among the other standard exterior equipment you’ll benefit from: a power rear lift gate, rain-sensing wipers, power folding, heated outside mirrors and a hands-free lift gate.

Inside, drivers will enjoy a heated, leather 8-way power driver's seat with memory, while their front passenger also gets a leather, heated 6-direction power seat as well. The QX60's Tri-Zone Automatic Temperature Control will keep all occupants comfortable. The premium audio system is top-notch, and of course, all of the most current info-tech features are set up, including email viewing on an 8-inch screen.

One of the biggest reasons for choosing a vehicle of this size is for the space. The QX60 provides it in abundance, even in the rear. Its second-row seats tilt and slide to provide easy access to the third row. Seating and storage combinations are versatile. Owners can opt for seating for seven, fold down the second and third rows for an enormous cargo area, or any combination thereof.

On the safety front, the QX60 is no slouch. In fact it earned the highest possible safety rating from the IIHS for its superior collision prevention, and is loaded with semi-autonomous radar-based safety features. Furthermore, it comes with Nissan's Backup Collision Intervention, preventing drivers from accidentally colliding with obstacles located behind the vehicle.

An assortment of upgrade packages is available for the QX60; ranging from extra technological gadgets, to radar-based safety features or a slew of additional creature comforts.

Thinking about stepping up with your next vehicle? Consider the INFINITI QX60. It's everything you'd expect from a premium vehicle, without the price. Stop by Campus Infiniti in Victoria today and experience the difference that quality makes!
