INFINITI QX60 premium crossover: enhanced design, dynamics, comfort and convenience for 2016

  • Refreshed exterior design adds to premium look and feel

Hong Kong – INFINITI has comprehensively enhanced its versatile QX60 premium crossover for 2016, introducing a wide range of changes that improve the seven-seater’s exterior design and its driving dynamics, while showcasing new features and technologies that improve comfort, convenience and safety.

Reflecting an evolution of INFINITI’s stand-out artistic design, the 2016 QX60’s revised form accentuates its powerful elegance and craftsmanship. This is a premium crossover that continues to defy segment expectations by providing flexible and accessible seating for up to seven, while at the same time delivering superior standards of comfort and luxury.

The 2016 QX60’s new suspension components and settings combine to deliver superior levels of both comfort and agility, while a revised steering system delivers greater feedback for a more rewarding drive. Available in both front-wheel drive and optional Intelligent All-Wheel Drive versions, the QX60 is offered with a choice of powerful and efficient powertrains – 3.5-liter V6 gasoline or Hybrid.

Whichever engine is chosen, upgraded cabin sound insulation and revised engine mounts for the 2016 model reduce the ingress of noise, vibration and harshness, enabling occupants to better appreciate the uprated cabin materials and the feature-rich audio and connectivity systems.

Seven new equipment packages and a new range of exterior colors for 2016 allows customers to take a truly tailored approach in specifying the QX60 premium crossover to meet their individual needs and preferences. The personal touch is reinforced with thoughtful new assistive and intuitive technology features, such as the INFINITI Personal Assistant™, a 24-hour personal concierge service.

Global sales of the QX60 during the first eleven months of 2015 reached 48,684, year-on-year, representing a growth of 24%. The U.S. market alone posted a 32%increase compared to the same period in 2014. INFINITI expects the new 2016 model to attract even more premium buyers to the brand.

“The new QX60 will become an important part of INFINITI’s global growth strategy as the global premium crossover market continues to grow. The new model builds on the characteristics that have made QX60 an increasingly popular choice with premium buyers, offering enhanced design, driving dynamics and best-in-class levels of interior comfort and convenience.” Francois Bancon, INFINITI Vice President Product Strategy

The new INFINITI QX60 will go on sale in selected markets later in 2016.
