Infiniti is the luxury arm of Nissan and it’s a brand we’ve trusted for years to give us exceptional style and performance in vehicles that are perfect for the ride and offer us the dynamics we want. If you want comfort, quality and style in your luxury vehicle, the engineering inside an Infiniti vehicle can give you everything you want to enjoy on the road. As this brand advances and continues to make the improvements we want to see on the automotive market we may be in for a serious treat when it comes to what Infiniti has coming for us in the future.
When it comes to the luxury SUV market there’s a premium on the sport part of the equation. Many of the luxury automakers have chosen to focus on great driving manner and powerful engines to give us the precision and effective driving we want to have on the road. The Infiniti QX70 is the sport model in the Infiniti lineup to give the brand a great SUV for us to admire and drive. This SUV competes with the Porsche Cayenne and BMW X6 to be a vehicle that shows more for the ride than these two, but at a price that’s a lot easier to afford.
Those who either attended or read coverage of the Detroit Auto Show might be confused by what the Q60 is. Infiniti revealed a concept that has not yet been approved for production and since Infiniti went to new vehicle names the Q60 may be confusing, but it’s really the G37 just with a new name. This car still comes in a coupe and convertible to be a great luxury car for you to buy and shows up with a great engine and a six-speed manual transmission for the control freaks to enjoy.
Purchasing your new Q60 will bring a price that starts out at nearly $42,000 for the Journey coupe model. For those of you who want the Limited, the price is still reasonable in the luxury class at $50,500 and is equipped with an automatic transmission. The convertible model brings a starting price of $49,500 for those of you who want to enjoy the wind blowing in your hair, and the top of the line IPL convertible shows up with a price of $63,000 for the ones who feel they want, deserve and certainly need the best this car has to offer.
The Infiniti QX60 has something for just about everyone who is looking for a great crossover SUV to drive. With three rows of seats for up to seven passengers the whole gang can ride along for an adventure. This adventure can head off road when the all-wheel drive is on board. Drivers who want to enjoy some great fuel efficiency can have on the QX60 by opting for the hybrid powertrain and the overall towing capacity of this SUV comes in around 5,000 pounds, helping to make this a do-it-all, have it your way kind of SUV.
Competing in a category with the Acura MDX and Audi Q7, the QX60 shows off with a lot of room across all three rows, unlike many third row vehicles. Add the excellent on board safety system that offers a 360-degree camera system along with other safety features and the QX60 comes close to many of the Volvo models for bragging rights in the realm of safety features. As a newer, renamed model vehicle, the QX60 only has minor changes for 2015 including a Wheat interior color, a revised transmission and some new exterior color options.
