A Good Criuser, But I Was Hoping For A Rocket. — Drove beautifully, but still didn't have much off the line punch.Had to get it rapped up to about 4000 rpm before real propulsion takes place. Maybe I am spoiled by american cars.

Pros: looks great, good seats.

Cons: lack of pick up

Bmw X5 3.0d — When BMW released the X5, it set the standards for European built SUVs. And it still does. The 3.0 diesel engine is fantastic. It has an amazing torque, making it very fast shifting between gears. The auto gear is a fantastic piece of work. Unique in its kind, making manual gearing obsolete to be honest. The car is very big and thus very heavy, yet this never turns out to be a burden. That is, keeping the car outside city area, of course.

Pros: Great engine, Spacious, Building Quality, Great Automatic Gearbox

Cons: Not Your Average City Cruiser, Expensive Option List, Soccer Mom Car

Bmw X5 - The Ultimate Driving Machine — I just purchased the BMW X5 last year. It brought a huge smile to my face when I went to go pick it up. The SUV serves its purpose. I've transported people, supplies, luggage, and I've even off-roaded with this vehicle, and it has proven to be worth its salt while maintaining style and image. I also chose the option of having heated seats and this has retained some good friendships for me in the winter. The panaramic sunroof is huge and is the largest I've seen in any vehicle. Bluetooth has been so helpful with handsfree. Basically, I'm loving my car...

Pros: Excellent ride, suspension, large gas tank, very spacious, large panaoramic sun/moon roof, luv the bluetooth

Cons: CD in rear, navigation system not easy/intuitive.

A Joy To Drive — Parking sensors are a big plus as is the privacy glass and roller sun shades. The huge glass moonroof is a really nice feature and it takes up less space in my garage than my E500 Mercedes. The tow package is great.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: Safe and powerful. Fun to drive, predictable.

Cons: Thirsty but it still gets 40% better fuel economy than a Lexus.

Handling Ranked 2019 INFINITI QX60 Luxe FWD worse.
"It is solid through and through. Sporty, fast, responsive and quiet. In traffic jams, I could cross a median and turn around, could drive off road in a pinch, no problem. Steering was just that, you knew how much to turn the wheel to make a turn; some might say it was stiff but Id rather it be so that hve a steering wheel that at 65 mph is loose and sloppy. Gas mileage was awesome, gas tank even bigger than QX60."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2019 INFINITI QX60 Luxe FWD worse.
"It handles all the needs we had. back row seats folded down and I have no need for a 3rd row seat. Have to keep them folded down to have the same cargo capacity I had with the BMW with 2nd row seating in place."
