Infiniti’s full-size QX80 may be one of those polarizing SUVs with its distinct, bulbous design including patches of chrome that seem a bit random.
But for 2018, this luxury hauler is redesigned with an exterior that’s now more refined and consistent, likely appealing to a larger market where competitors like the Navigator are thriving.
If you’re looking for something smaller, check out the all-new 2019 Infiniti QX50 crossover.
As Adam Paterson, managing director, INFINITI Canada, puts it, “The 2018 QX80 commands a heightened flagship presence within the INFINITI portfolio…the updated model provides upscale luxury for all passengers, as well as a suite of advanced technologies that elevate confidence and control on any road.”
What’s new for 2018
The front hood, fascia, fenders and grille and rear fascia and hatch styling are redesigned, now riding on 20-inch and 22-inch wheel designs. The cabin is completely reworked to include an updated shift knob and wrapped upper instrument panel with contrast stitching, a new leather wrapped and stitched horn pad, door trim and seat quilting on Deluxe Technology Package, along with a new Saddle Brown interior with new Charcoal Burl Trim.
