INFINITI QX60 vs Lexus RX 350L - Real-World Family Comfort
We will get to standard features, technology, and driving below. But when it comes to choosing a large family vehicle, what most Dayton buyers want to know is how comfortable, practical, and luxurious their SUV will be for the family. So this section will look at the features and design of the QX60 and RX 350L that most impact everyday luxury and comfort for families.
The Third Row
Chances are, that if you're considering the INFINITI QX60 or Lexus RX 350L, having a third row of seats is a priority. Whether you need extra room for kids or the extended family, you'll want to know if the third row is spacious and convenient enough for your needs.
While minivans are still king of third row space in most cases, some three-row SUVs and crossovers are better than others. Comparing the third rows of the INFINITI QX60 and Lexus RX 350L, there are some significant differences. The most noticeable, is that the third row of the QX60 is more spacious. But one difference that Dayton families might not notice on a test drive is ease of entry.
It is significantly easier to access the third row of the QX60. This is partly due to the INFINITI's unique tilt-and-slide second row, which can tilt and slide forward even with a car seat installed. This has been a favorite feature among Centerville parents, and separates the QX60 from the three-row luxury competition. Meanwhile, the Lexus RX offers much narrower access to the third row, which is smaller overall. So if you plan to use the third row of your SUV often, the INFINITI QX60 is the better option.
Cargo & Utility
If you're a parent, there's a good chance you've had to do the math on fitting your family and luggage into your vehicle for a road trip, or even just the drive to the airport. And while the Lexus RX 350L is the brand's only three-row SUV, it comes up short in cargo capacity. Behind the third row, you only get 7.5 cubic feet of cargo room. Meanwhile, the INFINITI QX60 has more than double the cargo room behind the third row.
The INFINITI QX60 can also tow up to 5,000 lbs for active families, while the RX 350L tops out at 3,500 lbs. So if you have a boat or camper you plan to tow for camping trips, the QX60 offers quite a bit more wiggle room on weight. Both three-row crossovers offer AWD for inclement weather.
