INFINITI QX Sport Inspiration Unveiled – Houston INFINITI Dealer Review
The INFINITI QX Sport Inspiration has made its world debut at the 2016 Beijing Auto Show. This new model gives us a glimpse into the brand’s vision for future SUV design for the premium mid-size SUV segment. With exterior styling designed to appeal to an artistic sensibility, the body is long with a coupe-like silhouette. Recognizable INFINITI traits include the signature double arch grille, crescent-cut c-pillars, a muscular stance and a fluid, sculpted body.
This concept vehicle promises off-road versatility with a raised 9.1inches of ground clearance and on or off road driving characteristics for cruising comfort. Numerous design details on the QX Sport fulfill both aesthetic and functional purposes. One example are the sills on both sides of the vehicle that function as recessed steps. This feature not only allows for easy entry and exit from the vehicle but it also reduces the apparent depth of the body and raises its visual center of gravity. Another example of similar form and function design is the performance inspired, rear-diffuser which increases aerodynamic efficiency with strategically integrated exhaust outlets.
The handcrafted cabin of the INFINITI QX Sport model has been designed to perfectly accommodate the driver and passengers alike. With either a four-seat layout or a fifth seat in the center of the rear bench, the spacious interior allows each occupant to have their own personal space. Black and white saddle leather wraps many of the cabins surfaces. Contrasting silver stitching and tan edging trims the dash, doors, floorboards and kickplates. The use of color gradation glass for the panoramic roof keeps passengers shaded while allowing sunlight to fill the space.
A driver centric dash with controls that allow the driver to easily select driving modes and utilize the full infotainment display screen, is a prominent feature of the QX Sport. Metal paddle shifters mounted on the rear of the steering wheel, lend a sports dynamic to this SUV. While compact monitors placed on the front pillars allow the driver to see images captured by two rear cameras without shifting their eyes from the road ahead.
