Sinister Infiniti QX70S Design Headed to Paris

Since its inception in 2002, the Infiniti FX stood out among performance luxury crossovers with its bold aggressive styling, and that holds true for the current model, now known as the QX70. The problem is that rivals like the Porsche Cayenne and BMW X5 are coming off big updates, while the Infiniti is likely nearing the end of its second generation, which is now 5-years old.
To bide a little time until the next-gen QX70 can break cover, Infiniti has spiced up its aging crossover with a new blacked-out appearance package. Ahead of its debut at the Paris Motor Show next month, the Infiniti QX70S Design gives an even meaner presence to the already sinister QX70 with an abundance of dark trim, and while we’ll have to wait a bit longer to see the entire vehicle, Infiniti has released several teaser shots showing some of the details.

On the outside, this includes black chrome used on the grille, fog lights, side scoops and rear license plate frame. Adding to the darkened appearance are the black 21-inch, six-spoke wheels and the black roof rails and mirror caps. Inside, the QX70S Design gets black lacquer finish on the center console, and the rest of the interior is finished in black leather with purple accent stitching throughout.

For now, Infiniti says that the QX70S Design will only be sold in Western European countries following its debut in Paris, so there’s no word as to whether or not it will be offered in the U.S. While we’re daydreaming about the QX70S Design being sold in North America, it would probably be even cooler if Infiniti developed a new styling sub-brand and applied a similar S Design to a broader range of models like the Q50.

The Infiniti QX70S Design will be unveiled during the press days at the Paris Motor Show, which runs from October 2-14.
