Buying the 2021 Infiniti QX60 is really a good option as it is a functional and practical mid-size family SUV. But to get all the features and technology on offer in the interior and safety sections, the Luxe trim, which is available on sale for a base MSRP of $46,150 for the FWD variant and $48,150 for the AWD variant, should be good enough. It comes with a plethora of features like Bose 13-speaker Premium Audio system, 8.0-inch touchscreen, heated and electrically adjustable seats, automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring, and many more as standard.
The 2021 Infiniti QX60, which is available for sale at a base MSRP of $44,350, comes with the FWD drivetrain as standard. However, an optional AWD system is offered for an additional $2,000. The transmission duties of the 2021 QX60 are handled by a CVT automatic transmission with multiple transmission modes and manual mode with paddle shifters.
Even though the performance is not the best of the segment, the 2021 Infiniti QX60 offers an excellent ride quality, be it on the freeway or during slow city speeds. The braking performance is also quite decent for the segment due to the impeccable hardware on offer. However, the 2021 QX60 is not meant to take the corners enthusiastically as the suspension is set on the softer side and the steering is a bit vague in operation.

However, both the 2021 Cadillac XT5 and the 2021 Buick Enclave offered a lower combined gas mileage of 22 MPG and 21 MPG, respectively.
"We did find the interior of the QX60 to be a bit too reminiscent of the Pathfinder, with cheap materials throughout and a plain-Jane design."- Caranddriver.com
The 2021 Infiniti QX60 retains the interior of the outgoing 2020 QX60 and sees no changes in the design and features front. Coming with the high contrast wheat leatherette/graphite color combination as standard, the 2021 QX60 also offers seven other optional interior color combinations. However, these are only offered if you opt for the Essential Package, which comes at an MSRP of $2,900.

Even though the 2021 Infiniti QX60's infotainment system offers all the required features, we were quite disappointed with the unpolished interface on offer. In comparison to the likes of the 2021 Acura MDX and the 2021 Cadillac XT5, the 2021 QX60's infotainment wasn't the most intuitive of the lot. It had occasional stutters and freezes too. Some of the infotainment and audio system features on offer with the 2021 Infiniti QX60 has been mentioned below:
8” touch screen with Infiniti InTouch with Navigation and INFINITI InTouchTM Services with Lane Guidance
SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link

8-way power driver's seat, 6-way power front passenger's seat

Some of the features offered as standard are automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring, forward collision warning, airbags, ABS with EBD, driveline traction control, stability control, and many more. However, some of the features like the 360-degree camera system, rain-sensing windshield wipers, lane-departure warning, backup-collision intervention, and adaptive cruise control are optional features.
With an impressive V6 motor under the hood which makes close to 25 hp more than the 2021 QX60, the 2021 Acura MDX managed to come out with much superior acceleration figures. It is also more fun to drive than the 2021 QX60. However, where the 2021 QX60 edges ahead is in the interior space, which is much better than the 2021 MDX. Coming in with a similar base MSRP of $44,400, the 2021 Acura MDX turned out to be a more value for money offering of the segment, due to a long list of infotainment, interior, and safety features on offer.

The 2021 Cadillac XT5, which is available on sale for a base MSRP of $42,680, is close to $2,000 cheaper than the 2021 QX60. However, the 2021 XT5 is much more powerful, offers more standard interior and safety features, and looks pretty great as well. The only downside is the slightly lower gas mileage on offer and a cramped interior in comparison to the 2021 Infiniti QX60.

SUV Well, QX60 has a hushed cabin with extra cushy seats. QX60 offers a comfortable and noise-free drive. Of course, there are a few things I wish were better but all those are small things and nothing worth thinking over. My major concern has been with the front cupholders in the center console placed vertically and not horizontally. As much as I would like to sugarcoat this, they’ve never run out of their elusive nature. Apart from this, the space between outboard seats could have been a little better. A little at least.
