The standard 2017 Infiniti QX60 comes with 18 x 7.5-inch, triple 5-spoke aluminum alloy wheels with 235/65R18 all-season tires. There is also an option available for 20 x 7.5-inch, 15-spoke aluminum alloy wheels with 235/55R20 all-season tires instead but that’s your call, depending on your choice and affordability. As for the spare tire for emergencies, it comes with a temporary T165/90D18. We all know what that means: Yes, more space. Unlike the 2017 Infiniti QX50, the new 2017 Infiniti QX60 comes with two rows of foldable seats! It is the perfect family car for all seasons.


The 2017 Infiniti QX60 is entirely driver-oriented. The interior makes sure that the vehicle is connected to the driver at a personal level. This means that throughout your drive, your steering wheel is part of your arm.  The dashboard has graphite line design with optional maple accents.  For a comfortable night or dark drives, all gauges, buttons, and knobs have a violet glow to assist you instead of having you fumble around in the dark. As if that were all, all controls are positioned for easy access and instinctive reach!

The center console maple has been preserved by Fuki-Urushi, a Japanese craft consisting of layers of lacquer across the wood to keep the natural patterns intact. Not only is a long term approach taken towards the center casserole but all places of frequent contact like the armrests, the door handle area etc. have a leather designed not only endurable but pleasant to the tactile sensation.

The beauty does not end at the interior material. All three rows have a clear view outside the moonroof, keeping all seven passengers connected to the world outside. What’s more is, there are optional dual 8-inch screens, placed statistically keeping the view ranges in mind. Each screen has the option to play a separate movie or audiovisual file. They come with their headphone or earphone ports, wireless earphones and storage for any extra entertainment you might want to bring along!  Alongside this, the front passengers can still listen to the music of their choice from the fantastic Bose cabin surround system!

Furthermore, the backup collision intervention (BCI) assists in the prevention of possible collisions with approaching vehicles or other things while backing out of your parking space or any space whatsoever. It alerts the driver using visual and auditory warnings and even goes a step further to automatic brakes if deemed necessary. The forward emergency braking system monitors all vehicles nearby and their speeds, predicting any possible collisions.

This system again intervenes slightly if brakes are not applied in time, although a full brake is still necessary. The final protection technology comes from its layered protection which monitors the surroundings and alerts the driver. The inner layer providing the necessary protection in case an accident does appear. Being the perfect family car it promises to be. The 2017 Infiniti QX60 provides protection, comfort, and beauty, all packaged in one.
