QX Sport Inspiration: A daring new SUV vision from INFINITI

  • Hints at future INFINITI mid-sized premium SUV
  • Latest interpretation of ‘Powerful Elegance’ design language
  • Design evolved for European premiere in Paris

Hong Kong / Paris – The INFINITI QX Sport Inspiration is an elegant and powerful expression of progressive SUV design. Laying down markers for future INFINITI QX models, the QX Sport Inspiration explores the brand’s vision for a next-generation, premium mid-size SUV. The concept makes its European premiere at the 2016 Paris Motor Show (Mondial de l’Automobile), and includes several new design elements.

The QX Sport Inspiration stands out in its segment with its taut lines, muscular haunches, high visual center of gravity, long bonnet and raked, coupe-like silhouette. Immediately recognizable as an INFINITI, the QX Sport Inspiration is inspired by INFINITI’s ‘Powerful Elegance’ form language and bears the brand’s design hallmarks – including the signature double-arch grille, focused ‘human eye’ headlamps, ‘crescent-cut’ pillar and masculine, fluid body sculpting.

Flowing lines and advanced craftsmanship characterize the spacious and beautifully appointed interior, which follows INFINITI’s ‘driver-centric, passenger-minded’ approach to cabin architecture. The interior’s color palette – predominantly black and white with flashes of the hide’s natural tan color, as well as new dark brown leather for the Paris Motor Show – is striking, yet harmoniously blended through careful use of line, form, and texture.

“The QX Sport Inspiration is a statement of intent from INFINITI, showcasing a daring design philosophy and a demonstration of our capabilities in the mid-size SUV segment.” Roland Krueger, President of INFINITI
