2019 INFINITI QX60 NEAR NEW ORLEANS, LA VS. LINCOLN AVIATOR: WHICH SUV DESERVES THE TOP SPOT?
The 2019 INFINITI QX60 near New Orleans, LA continues to ride on its tried-and-tested formula of practical luxury, but will this formula work against the 2020 Lincoln Aviator? Find out the answer in this head-to-head battle between two luxury SUVs.
The 2019 INFINITI QX60 performs well in crash tests but came up short in some areas. QX60 only received four stars out of five for front and rollover crash protection in government testing. The IIHS awarded the QX60 an “Acceptable” rating for its passenger-side small overlap crash protection, so if you plan to use this SUV to transport children, this rating might make you think twice.
Worse yet, the QX60 received a dismal “Poor” score for its headlights. This completely disqualifies it from achieving the top-level Top Safety Pick designation, a feat achieved by several Lincoln cars such as the Continental and the MKT.
From the buyer’s side, you should prepare yourself to spend much more if you’d like advanced safety features in your INFINITI. Base models are packed with blind spot monitors, making up for the poor outward vision on this large SUV. Otherwise, essential features such as adaptive cruise control, active lane control, and lane departure warnings – usually standard on luxury cars – will considerably inflate the price tag.
