New large luxury Infiniti QX80 SUV priced from $110,900.
The SUV market in Australia has another new contender with Infiniti launching the new Infiniti QX80 today.
Based on the Nissan Patrol (which has been price-adjusted to accommodate the sibling model), the Infiniti QX80 seats up to eight people and will take on the upper-spec models of the Toyota LandCruiser, as well as the significantly more expensive, LandCruiser based, Lexus LX 570.
Launched with special drive-away pricing from $118,529 and fresh from being named winner of the Luxury/Large SUV segment at the 2015 AutoPacific Vehicle Satisfaction Awards for the third year in a row, the new Infiniti QX80 is powered by a 298kW/560Nm 5.5 litre V8 petrol engine.
Infiniti claims the big all-alloy power plant will use a combined 14.8L/100kms and the Infiniti QX80 comes with a 100 litre fuel tank.
While inside the Infiniti QX80 cabin owners will enjoy;
- Premium semi-aniline leather upholstery
- Heated/ventilated and power adjustable front seats
- Tri-Zone Automatic Temperature Control
- Nine cup holders
- Push-button ignition
- 15-speaker stereo system
- Dual seven-inch colour monitors for rear passengers
- Reverse camera
Rear cargo area comes in at a generous 470 litres, that’s with the third-row seats in position. The Infiniti QX80 also boasts a 3,500kg braked towing capacity.
Jean-Philippe Roux is the boss of Infiniti Cars Australia; he says the Infiniti QX80 has been tailored to meet the specific needs of premium SUV buyers.
“The QX80 is among the most luxurious and generously appointed SUVs available in the world,”
“It is spacious, elegant and has an incredible presence, and it positions Infiniti squarely in this important vehicle segment.”
