The 2018 Infiniti QX60 3.5 AWD offers superior fuel economy without sacrificing interior space. For 2018, Infiniti decided not to release a hybrid model of this popular and highly-awarded crossover, instead opting to focus on updating the QX60 3.5 AWD model.
The 2018 QX60 3.5 AWD is powered by a 3.5-litre V6 engine capable of producing 295 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. Its estimated fuel economy is 12.5 L/100 km in the city and 9.0 L/100 km for highway driving. The QX60 3.5 AWD offers 4242 litres (149.8 cubic feet) of overall passenger volume and 447 litres (15.8 cubic feet) of cargo volume behind the third-row seats, as well as plenty of headroom and legroom for the driver and all passengers.
