Featuring dynamic designs the large car will seat 7 adults and their belongings in comfort and style. The signature front double arch and wave pattern grille mirrors the bold style of the popular Infiniti Q50 sedan. The front fascia also features new LED high/low beam headlights that illuminate with Infiniti’s distinct ‘brow-and-eye’ daytime running lights.

Other exterior features include body coloured front and rear overfenders integrated with a full length running board, large yet lightweight 22-inch forged aluminum alloy wheels, large stainless rear bumper scuff protector and a power rear liftgate.

The 5.6-litre V8 engine combines the responsive acceleration of Infiniti’s VVEL (Variable Valve Event & Lift) technology with the efficiency of Direct Injection Gasoline (DIG) to produce 400 horsepower and 560 Nm of torque. The V8 engine is mated to a smooth 7-speed automatic transmission with Adaptive Shift Control (ASC) and manual shift mode with Downshift Rev matching (DRM).

The Infiniti QX80 is offered with standard four-wheel drive, featuring Infiniti's proven All-Mode 4WD system with Auto, 4H, and 4L modes. The system is designed to distribute torque to all four wheels when road conditions warrant (up to 50 percent can go to the front wheels on demand), helping to enhance traction. When off-road conditions become even more challenging, a multi-mode terrain switch comprising of Snow, Mud and Rock setting changes the engine torque, 4WD and VDC (Vehicle Dynamic Control) parameters.

A new piece of technology debuts with the QX80 - the Hydraulic Body Motion Control system helps reduce body roll while turning for a more comfortable ride. Hydraulic cylinders located at the shock absorbers adjust roll stiffness by allowing transfer of fluid between the left and right sides of the vehicle allow for variable body control that gives better ride and handling characteristics.

The Infiniti QX80's interior offers a comfortable space and personal controls for every occupant. Luxurious semi-aniline leather seating is standard for all 7 occupants. Heated and ventilated front seats are standard as well as heated second row seats. The second row comes with folding captain seats with remote release switches that offer tip-up function for easy access to third row entry/exit. The third row seat is a 60/40-split power folding design with reclining capability, allowing passengers to adjust their seating position electronically.

The Bose Cabin Surround sound system with 5.1-encoding, 15-speaker, single in-dash DVD/CD player with MP3 playback capability, USB connection port for use with iPod or other compatible devices and Streaming Audio via Bluetooth. It also includes an 8-inch high resolution colour touch-screen display, dual 7-inch colour headrest monitors, two pairs of wireless headphones, wireless remote control. The system allows playback of games or movies in the rear, while front occupants listen to audio all at the same time. The two 7-inch colour monitors include an auto-bright system that adjusts for daytime, clouds/evening and night/tunnel lighting.

To check out this exciting new premium SUV, head down to the Singapore Motorshow happening 14 - 17 January at Suntec Convention and Exhibition Hall.

Price at launch: S$389,800 (as at 6 Jan 2016).
