Although the car length of the new QX60 is shorter than that of the previous generation, it still has a very spacious and comfortable passenger space under the car length of 5047mm and the wheelbase of 2900mm. More spaciousness and relaxation. First of all, let’s start with the double front seats. Not only are the seat backs wide and the seat cushion long enough, but the support and coverage are also quite good. In addition to electric adjustment, the double front seats also have heating, ventilation and electric massage functions. , the ventilated seats can be said to win my heart in the hot summer test drive, and the massage function can also slightly reduce the fatigue of long-distance driving.

The dual front seats, which are quite comfortable and comfortable to sit on, not only have heating and ventilation functions, but also have a three-mode pressure-relieving massage function, which is very considerate for the front seat occupants.

The second row of seats with a 6/4 separation design, in addition to sliding back and forth, the seat back also has multi-stage angle adjustment.

Of course, if there is no third-row occupant and the second-row seats are pushed to the end, the performance of both leg and head room is very spacious and abundant. In addition, in order to facilitate the entry and exit of passengers in the third row, there are one-button quick retract buttons on the outside of the second row of seats and on the backs of the seats, which can be said to be labor-saving and convenient to operate. In addition, in front of the second row of seats, an independent thermostatic air conditioner control and a three-stage electric heating function button are also set, and there are also AC power sockets and dual USB charging jacks below. As for the second and third rows The air-conditioning outlets are set on both sides of the roof. The original factory emphasizes that this arrangement can enhance the degree of convection of the indoor air and accelerate the cooling effect.

As for the space performance of the third row of seats, due to the sufficient longitudinal space in the cabin, a 175cm adult can still get acceptable knee space, and the head space will not be oppressive. It can be adjusted in multiple stages, so that the occupant's sitting position can be much more relaxed and comfortable.

It can reach 2135 liters, plus there is a hidden storage space with a capacity of 54 liters under the tail compartment floor, so it can definitely meet the daily load needs.

The electric panoramic glass sunroof is definitely a plus point for the SUV.

Delicate, full and stable output of V6 engine

In the power system part, the new QX60 still uses the 3.5-liter V6 naturally aspirated engine of the previous model, and maintains the maximum horsepower and torque output settings of 295hp and 37.3kgm, but the transmission system is replaced with a new 9-speed manual automatic transmission. To replace the old CVT continuously variable transmission system. Although the tax is higher due to the larger displacement, after all, the car weighs 2.1 tons, and the fineness and stability of the V6 engine output can also meet the QX60's product requirements for comfort performance, plus The output data on the book is not bad, so the power performance at low speed is still full and smooth, and the acceleration power at high speed is more readily available, especially the 9-speed manual automatic transmission is quite smooth for power connection. In order to be excellent, let the driving have a delicate and gradual acceleration process. Even in the Sport mode, the release of the entire acceleration force will not be too aggressive and violent, which will affect the overall driving texture and comfort performance. This is a luxury SUV that is designed for family comfort.

Comfortable handling without soft feet

The QX60, which takes family cars as its main appeal, will naturally focus on comfort performance in the suspension adjustment settings, which also makes this car very capable of handling road crushing shocks The vibration of the road surface is effectively suppressed, so the rear passengers will not feel the obvious bouncing feeling, and the quiet performance of the cabin after the sound insulation is strengthened is quite good, so that the passengers can be immersed in a relaxed and comfortable cabin environment. When the scene was replaced with winding mountain road bends, the inertial influence of the huge body shape and the more comfortable suspension adjustment still affected the flexibility and neatness of the QX60 when entering and exiting the bends, but fortunately, The soft-tuned suspension still maintains a certain degree of support in the corners. Although the body roll is still obvious, there will be no unstable phenomenon of soft feet or four-wheel sinking, especially the body swing when the center of gravity is shifted. Within the predictable range, coupled with the excellent tracking and stability performance brought by the AWD four-wheel drive system, the QX60 can also show a reliable sense of handling in mountain bends.

Under the comfortable and quiet driving texture, the QX60 still has a good head directivity in mountain bends, coupled with sufficient suspension support and excellent tracking performance of AWD four-wheel drive, so even if the car height brings the body roll, However, it still provides a smooth and stable handling experience for driving.

Although it is a bit too much to describe the remodeled QX60 as "reborn", it is undeniable that the product strength displayed by the new generation QX is indeed enough to compete with European competitors. Whether it is the trendy design of the exterior or interior, the luxurious texture mastered by the LSUV, or the higher standard performance at the level of safety technology, they are all highly appreciated and affirmed. The advantages of flexible passenger space brought by the three-row seats, and the more affordable price setting compared to European counterparts, make the new generation QX60 a highly competitive and value-for-money seven-seater in the market. The luxury LSUV, especially for Infiniti, is undoubtedly a boost to the brand.
