Redesigned 2016 Infiniti QX60 luxury crossover also makes Canadian debut
Today, after nine consecutive months of Canadian sales growth, Infiniti unveiled the newest addition to its expanding lineup. The 2017 Infiniti QX30, Infiniti’s first entry into the compact crossover luxury segment, made its Canadian debut at the Montreal International Auto Show and presents a bold visual statement as part of Infiniti’s premium model line-up.
The Infiniti QX30 boasts a purposeful appearance that remains true to the powerful and elegant design cues that guided the original QX30 concept. The car’s highly sculpted exterior, unique crossover stance and asymmetric cabin design exemplify Infiniti’s design-led approach to product development.
“The Infiniti QX30 will compete in the rapidly-growing Small Luxury SUV segment that has tripled in size in the last two years, and Quebecers account for more than 25 per cent of the sales in this growing segment,” said Stephen Lester, managing director of Infiniti Canada. “The QX30 was created for a new generation of premium buyers and demonstrates an evolving line-up that both speaks to the future of luxury driving and promises to fuel segment growth for the Infiniti brand.”
The Infiniti QX60 premium crossover, the top seller in the Infiniti line-up in Canada that accounts for half of Infiniti sales in Quebec, also made its debut in Montreal. Infiniti has introduced a wide range of changes that improve the seven-seater’s exterior design and its driving dynamics while showcasing new features and technologies that improve comfort, convenience and safety. The 2016 QX60’s new suspension components and settings combine to deliver superior levels of both comfort and agility, while a revised steering system delivers greater feedback for a more rewarding drive. Available with standard Intelligent All-Wheel Drive, the QX60 is offered with a choice of powerful and efficient powertrains – 3.5-litre V6 gasoline or Hybrid.
“Infiniti has comprehensively enhanced the versatile QX60 premium crossover for 2016 by accentuating its powerful elegance and craftsmanship,” said Lester. “Featuring an enhanced design, driving dynamics and the highest levels of interior comfort and convenience, we expect the new 2016 model to attract even more premium buyers to the brand.”
