Infiniti updated its mid-size seven-seater luxury SUV for 2016, bringing it in tune with its current design language.
In fact, the freshened up automobile’s new suave lines make it appear a little more aggressive, focused and premium. The car’s exterior styling remains easy on the eye, even though at a second glance one could spot complex details on its body – take for instance the redesigned double-arch grille, flanked by standard-fit bi-xenon headlamps.
Mechanical wise, the SUV comes with brand new shock absorbers and springs, which obviously improve ride comfort, but also reduce body roll at corners. The emphasis on dynamic is also set by the new electric power steering system – which was developed by the engineers to be more responsive, and now requires just 2.9 turns lock-to-lock.
A 265 hp, 248 lb-ft of torque 3.5-litre V6 comes standard, but a hybrid powertrain, made up of a supercharged 2.5-litre inline four-cylinder combined with an electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack, which offers 250 hp and 243 lb-ft torque is available as well.
For 2016, Infiniti has also added seven new equipment packages and a fresh range of exterior colors.
