The car is a seven-seat CUV and has received new exterior styling, more technology and improved driving dynamics and comfort. Infiniti’s QX60 now has a sharp front end, with a large grille and new head and rear lights.

The profile of the three-row family car hasn’t changed so much, but the rear of this Infiniti lost some chrome trim for a more clean look, while the rear bumper got a different air diffuser. The car is available in new colors and can be ordered with more alloy wheel designs.

While its platform brother, the Nissan Pathfinder, lost its hybrid variant, Infiniti will still offer a hybrid version of the QX60. Other improvements brought by the facelift include liquid-filled active engine mounts, a reconfigured suspension, a revised steering system, and several tweaks to improve handling, stability and comfort. The crossover is available both in front-wheel drive and all-wheel-drive variants.

Regarding technological features, the QX60 got a Forward Emergency Braking system with pedestrian detection, marking the brand’s first system of this kind. Furthermore, the car comes with Infiniti’s Predictive Forward Collision Warning system.

The Infiniti QX60 has also received some interior revisions meant to raise the comfort level available for its passengers. The car features improved sound proofing, uprated cabin materials and new connectivity solutions.

The cabin’s insulation has received specific attention and the manufacturer claims its QX60 CUV brings class-leading noise, vibration and harshness levels at a constant speed.

The new QX60 wasn’t the only novelty from Infiniti shown at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show. The Japanese brand also displayed the new Q50, QX30 and the Q60 sport coupe. Nissan’s premium branch is going through an important product offensive to increase its sales. Last year marked excellent sales results for this brand, but it’s far from the three German premium carmakers that top sales charts in the segment.
