Among all the automakers that are currently presenting their latest vehicle creations in this year’s New York Auto Show event, there is Infiniti. This luxury division that belongs to the Japanese automaker, Nissan, has taken advantage of the event to officially unveil the 2016 model year QX50 vehicle model.
Well, taking a glance at the car, it looks very much alike its China-spec counterpart. As such, the Japanese crossover model sports LED daytime running lights, a redesigned front grille and also revised front and rear bumpers. We can also see the car coming with a higher ride height, redesigned side mirrors and also a set of alloy wheels measuring 18 inches diagonally.
The car now features a longer wheelbase when compared to the previous model. Thanks to that, those sitting in the rear compartment of the vehicle will now feel more relaxed than before. To put this into figures, the knee room for the rear passengers has grown by 3.9 inches and the legroom has grown by no less than 4.3 inches.
As for the cabin, it features mostly familiar elements, only with some minor additions. Customers buying the vehicle will now find themselves benefiting from a moonroof as well as heated front seats. And, for those who are interested in an even more luxurious option, a Premium Plus package is available as an option. This package provides buyers of the model with rear parking sensors for the front and rear ends of the car, a so-called Around View Monitor and also a GPS navigation system.
In terms of performance, the car gains its power from a 3.7L V6 engine. This engine delivers 325 bhp and 361 Nm of power output and torque, respectively. While customers will get a 7-speed automatic gearbox as standard, they can also purchase the optionally available all-wheel-drive (AWD) drivetrain.
