The Infiniti has three rows of seats with the first two rows having ample leg space and power reclining. All rows come with perks. The second row has optional heating and an available bench seat to make space for eight instead of the standard seven. The third row has power reclining and a shaped contour that provides extreme comfort. Apart from the forward-backward recline, these seats can also be folded to provide maximum storage space for your luggage.
The Navigation System comes with voice recognition and NavTrafﬁc, a navigation system which provides detailed directions and related information. Its high-resolution screen has enhanced 3-D graphics. Like many other Infiniti models, the Infiniti QX80 has Lane Guidance to assist with both staying in lane and lane interchange. What’s new is that it also tells weather conditions and forecast.
Usually, assistance is provided for parking and high speeds. The QX80, however, provides help in low traffic too. Its Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC) can slow down the vehicle according to the traffic to help maintain a safe distance and avoid any potential collisions. Once past the slow traffic range, it automatically re-accelerates your car to its previous speed. It’s Around View Monitor, with the aid of four strategically fitted cameras, provides a 360 degrees bird’s eye view on the display screen, helping make parking effortless. Furthermore, the Moving Object Detection, like in the QX60, gives the driver warnings on display. It adds to personal security with features like automatic collision notiﬁcation, emergency call, stolen vehicle notiﬁcation, scheduled maintenance notiﬁcation and maintenance alerts, etc.
The 2017 Infiniti QX80 comes with two seven inches display screens apart from its main display, bringing forth unlimited entertainment on the go. These screens can be used to play two different audiovisual files on each. They come with Bluetooth connectivity for your wireless headphones. Apart from that, it has thirteen speakers, with two subwoofers. You can play your CDs or DVDs the old fashioned way, stream your music from a Bluetooth device or satellite radio or simply connect your iPod via the USB port covered. The 2017 Infiniti QX80 is where your trust for entertainment lies.
What’s more is that you can synchronize all your meeting schedules, appointments with your QX80 and keep tabs on its location, speed, and more with programmable alerts using features like remote door lock/unlock, drive zone alert, valet alert, max speed alert and what not.
The luxury doesn’t end at purchase and use only, but it has some fancy plans. The IFS (Infiniti Financial Services) has quite a few lease and purchase options and payment plans. Furthermore, the company gives you a complimentary Infiniti vehicle when you leave yours for warranty service.
