To help members understand the latest automotive technology so they can purchase vehicles that best suit their needs, the Automobile Club of Southern California's Automotive Research Center (ARC) began testing and reviewing vehicles over a decade ago

For the 2023 edition, we include testing and ranking cars and light trucks with the latest technology, including having at least one advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS) feature. In addition to vehicle evaluation, the guide covers a number of pertinent automotive topics in detail—for example, the latest advanced safety features, how to properly maintain your vehicle, and new vehicles coming to market in the next few years.

Overall Observations

Infiniti’s midsize, 3-row SUV took a year off in 2021 and returned, completely redesigned, in 2022. It’s far more stylish, both inside and out, than the previous generation. The 2020 QX60’s V6 engine carried over for 2022, but now it’s mated with a 9-speed automatic transmission instead of the previous CVT. Front-wheel drive is standard; all-wheel drive is optional. On the road, we experienced hesitation and surging from the throttle, and some folks may find the QX60’s ride too firm for a luxury SUV. Rear visibility is also poor. The QX60’s cabin is nicely appointed; we especially appreciated the top-level Autograph model’s wood-trim dash and comfortable, quilted leather seats. The cabin’s first 2 rows have good headroom and legroom, although getting into the third-row is difficult. Cargo space is quite good - 75 cubic feet with the second-row seat backs folded down. The QX60 has a strong complement of ADAS features. A notable downside, however, is that the infotainment system is nonintuitive, and the instrument cluster feels outdated.
