The updated 2018 Infiniti QX80 has arrived in Australia, priced from $110,900 before on-road costs.
Key changes for the extensively revised SUV include the refreshed exterior, which includes new headlights, bumpers, grille, bonnet, wheels, and tail-lights.
Infiniti says the bonnet is 20mm higher than before and 90mm longer – lending a more muscular stance.
The facelifted QX80 sports the company’s new signature LED headlights with ‘eyebrow’ daytime-running lights signature, along with LED fog light strips.
Meanwhile, the interior has been updated with a revised upper instrument panel, along with redesigned door panels, centre, and rear-centre consoles.
The shift knob is new, as is the seat and door trim quilting, while there’s also refreshed stitching and piping. Infiniti says the seats and headrests have been updated too.
As before, there’s leather-accented surfaces throughout the interior contrasted with “wood grain inspired finishes”.
In terms of driver technology, the updated QX80 gets features like autonomous emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, lane-departure warning, and an intelligent parking system.
Under the bonnet is a carryover 5.6-litre V8 generating 298kW of power and 560Nm of torque. Shifting gears is a seven-speed automatic coupled to the company’s ‘All-Mode 4WD’ system.
Rounding out the specifications list are 22-inch forged alloy wheels in a new 18-spoke design, along with a 3500kg braked towing capacity.
Seven exterior colours are available – including the new Champagne Quartz (pictured) – with metallic hues asking for $1500 extra. Interior options are limited to graphite quilted leather with Espresso Burl accents.
The new QX80 is available to order now.
