Crossover Buying Guide

If you can’t decide whether you want a car or an SUV, get the best of both worlds with a crossover. The crossover category is hot in California and across the U.S. right now thanks to the versatility and adaptability of its offerings. Crossovers provide a slightly higher ride than a sedan and have more hatch cargo space, but give you the driving dynamics of a car. If that sounds like what you’re looking for, then a crossover might be right for you. Kearney Mesa INFINITI in San Diego has several award-winning crossovers on our showroom floor that we’d love to show you.


The 325-horsepower, 3.7L V6 engine and strong acceleration of the 2015 INFINITI QX50 make it one of the most powerful SUVs in its class. It handles with a sedan-like ease, maximizing its responsive steering and strong brakes for a smooth, stable ride. The premium cabin materials in the QX50 exude the luxury that INFINITI vehicles are known for. It seats five on standard leather upholstery with enough head and legroom for most adults. Standard features include a rearview camera, USB port, satellite radio, push-button start, and a six-speaker radio. We here at Kearney Mesa INFINITI are proud that the 2015 INFINITI QX50 was a finalist for the Best Luxury Compact SUV for the Money by U.S. News & World Report.


Accolades abound for the 2015 INFINITI QX60. Not only was it awarded the highest safety rating of five stars from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, but it also was named one of the Most Popular on for midrange luxury SUVs. It also received a Motorist Choice Award in the “People Mover” and “Kid Friendly” categories, likely thanks to its easily accessible third row. Behind that third row is 15.8 cubic feet of cargo space that expands when the second and third rows are folded down. The standard powertrain consists of a 3.5L V6 engine that can produce up to 265 horsepower and comes with front-wheel drive, with the option for all-wheel drive. You’ll be well connected in the cabin of the QX60 with Bluetooth phone connectivity and a USB port. Music is available via streaming Bluetooth that pumps through a 13-speaker Bose system.


The agile 2015 INFINITI QX70 has great road handling capabilities thanks to its nimble steering and responsive 3.7L V6 engine that produces 325-horsepower when paired with the seven-speed automatic transmission. Geared for the driver, the interior of the QX70 is filled with premium cabin materials such as leather upholstery and aluminum and wood trim. It seats five with standard power-adjustable seats in front and available heated and ventilated front seats. While a rearview camera is standard, the optional Around View Monitor is available and offers a 360-degree view to accurately maneuver the QX70 in tight spaces. Other standard features include satellite radio, Bluetooth phone connectivity, a USB port, sunroof, proximity key, and push-button start.
