Making its debut at the Dubai International Motor Show in November 2017, the INFINITI QX80 further advances INFINITI’s market-leading presence in the full-size luxury SUV segment.
Introducing a more modern interpretation of upscale luxury to the full-size SUV segment, the QX80 takes INFINITI’s “powerful elegance” design language in a bold new direction creating a powerful, contemporary and commanding aesthetic. The QX80 will appeal to affluent, high-achieving entrepreneurs and business leaders, often with families, looking for modern design, space and utility, hand-crafted quality, and effortless on-road performance. Markus Leithe, Managing Director, INFINITI Middle East, said: “The new INFINITI QX80 has been designed and engineered to allow customers to travel everywhere in luxury. The world premiere of this vehicle in the UAE underlines the strategic importance of our flagship SUV for the region”
The QX80 has a refined and spacious cabin featuring high-quality materials, a hand-crafted finish and advanced drive-assist technologies. With a taut yet comfort-oriented suspension, and ample performance from its 5.6-liter V8 engine, the new QX80 aims to give drivers an assured feeling of control and confidence at the wheel.
The QX80’s entertainment system in the rear of the vehicle has also been upgraded. Higher-resolution screens provide the interface for connectivity and entertainment devices. The system also now supports 31 languages, up from three in the outgoing QX80.
The QX80 comes with a range of technologies to inform the driver of the surroundings, help avoid potential hazards and ease the monotony of driving in certain conditions. These technologies include: lane departure warning and prevention; intelligent cruise control; distance control assist; predictive forward collision warning; forward emergency braking; blind spot warning and intervention; and backup collision intervention.
Available across the Middle East, the manufacturer’s suggested retail price starts at AED 307,500 ($84.246) with the top grade at AED 334,550 ($91.657).
Headquartered in Hong Kong, INFINITI, has manufacturing facilities in Japan, the United States, the United Kingdom and China. Its design studios are located in Atsugi-Shi near Yokohama, London, San Diego and Beijing.
