When it comes to cars, there’s no doubt that Infiniti ranks high on performance, dependability and utility. Their offerings have always been distinguished by their precision, craftsmanship and superior experience and luckily for us, we experienced Infiniti’s new QX60 up close and personal.
Inviting BURO. Middle East on a ‘ride and drive’ around the unique and mountainous landscapes of Georgia, the whirlwind adventure allowed us to experience the QX60’s state-of-the-art features first-hand, along with sharing an itinerary encompassing a set of bespoke experiences to reflect key elements of the SUV.
Infiniti introduces a new edition of the QX60 for 2023, arriving with advanced technology, refined aesthetics, a sleeker appearance and a plethora of design standouts.
A standout design is one of the hallmarks of the QX60. Beautifully sculpted with an exterior that includes an origami-inspired mesh grille, lighting signatures evoking digital piano keys and an available contrasting roof, drivers can also choose from a selection of coveted grades to better suit their preferences. Infiniti has also revised accent colours for the lower bumper trim – think gloss black on QX60 Pure, as well as Luxe and dark grey on Sensory and Autograph.
Once inside the vehicle, you’ll notice that this is where elegance meets utility with an exceptional level of design and quality translated through semi-aniline leather seats, open-pore wood and ambient lighting which further elevates the experience.
The 7-seater is also home to a 3.5-liter direct-injected V-6 engine, producing 279 horsepower and 350 Nm of torque. With generous power that can be easily controlled, To further tailor the drive experience, every QX60 features a drive mode selector with five settings, including sport and the configurable personal.
The 2023 Infiniti QX60 also comes standard with the Intelligent All-Wheel Drive which can direct up to 50% of available power to the rear wheels to help optimize traction in varying circumstances. Impressive, right? The meandering drive in Georgia proved it.
And because it allows for 7 people, the QX60 is confident with its multiple safety technologies. In addition to buckling up, available safety features include Forward Emergency Braking with pedestrian detection, Predictive Forward Collision Warning, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Blind Spot Warning and Intervention, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Departure Intervention and Driver Attention Alert. Other available, advanced driver-assistance technologies abound, including ProPILOT Assist (with Lane Keep Assist), Around View® Monitor with Moving Object Detection, and Smart Rear View Mirror.
And as if that wasn’t enough to get you on board the Infiniti QX60, the final element of its appeal is the integration of technologies that enable productivity and connectivity. Empowering technology in-vehicle includes the Infiniti InTouch with a 12.3-inch display featuring wireless Apple CarPlay and USB-based Android Auto.
The newly standard wireless device charging mat is one way to keep devices charged, but the QX60 also features abundant USB ports (six in Luxe, Sensory; seven in Autograph for all three rows of seats, with both Type-A and Type-C ports.
