Infiniti adds that the SUV “strengthens the brand’s position in the full-size SUV segment”.

“The QX80,” the automaker says, “has a refined and spacious cabin with high-quality materials, a hand-crafted finish and advanced driving assistance technologies.

“With a taut, yet comfort-orientated, suspension and ample performance from its 5.6-litre V8 engine the new QX80 gives drivers an assured feeling of control and confidence.”
