This is the new Infiniti QX70 Limited, a more premium version of the company’s familiar crossover, revealed at the NY Auto Show.
It’s the second Limited model we see from Infiniti after the 2016 QX80 Limited and features a ‘unique’ front fascia, LED daytime running lights replacing the standard fog lights and a new grille design which will be on every 2017 QX70 soon.
“The QX70 Limited offers a range of premium exterior and interior treatments, adding an extra touch of exclusivity to the dramatically styled crossover,” said Randy Parker, vice president, Infiniti Americas. “The QX70 has always been a popular model in the greater New York area so it’s fitting that visitors to the New York International Auto Show will be the very first to see this beautiful new QX70 Limited model.”
Other exterior changes include the body-coloured side air-vents, the dark-finished mirror housings, a stainless steel rear bumper protector and the dark rear lights. An exclusive set of 21in wheels with 265/45 tires complete the differences.
Inside there is now a new Graphite and Stone high-contrast leather treatment, a dark headliner, special open-pore wood trim with aluminum flake trim on the console and aluminium pedals.
A 325hp 3.7-litre V6 petrol mated to a seven-speed automatic is still the only powertrain of choice, with the 2017 QX70 offering a series of safety systems like Around View Monitor system with Moving Objection Detection, Intelligent Cruise Control and Lane Departure Warning and Lane Departure Prevention.
