What to know when Buying Infiniti QX
Performance and Specifications of Infiniti QX
The Infiniti QX is available in different trim levels and specifications. The Infiniti QX4 started off from having a 2.4 litre 4 cylinder and 3.0 litre V6 engines which were powered by 4 speed automatic and five speed automatic transmissions to having a minimum of a 2.7 litre 4 cylinder engine and a maximum of a 5.6 litre V8 engine with five speed automatic, six speed manual and seven speed automatic transmissions.

How is the design of Infiniti QX
Two very distinct designs are present for the Infiniti QX series. The Infiniti QX4 as mentioned earlier is a luxury version of the Nissan Pathfinder, and features the Pathfinder’s second generation body structure with its distinct grille and body shape. Interior quality is of two types; the premium fabric upholstery and the leather upholstery with useful and functional accessories such as steering wheel mounted controls, an AM/FM stereo which supports MP3 and CD drive. The higher trim levels of the Infiniti QX4 would provide customers with rear seat mounted entertainment. Since 2010, no significant changes have been made in the overall design of Infiniti QX56. However, the features have regularly been updated over the time. For instance, the latest versions feature automatic on/off LED headlights with high-beam assist and windshield wiper interlock. In addition, it has LED turn signals, integrated LED front fog lights, LED rear brake lights and lighting under the rubber-capped stainless steel side steps.
The interior of Infiniti QX56 is equivalently elegant featuring modern materials and rich textures. It carries a combination of leather-appointed seating and Mocha Burl trim on the panels and console. The steering wheel and shift knob are also wrapped in premium quality leather to deliver a comfortable feel while driving.
What are the best features of the Infiniti QX?
The Infiniti QX56 is listed among the top luxury SUVs and therefore features state-of-the-art equipment and technologies. Talking about the sound system, it encloses the Bose® 13-speaker premium audio system including 2 subwoofers. You can stream audio via Bluetooth wireless technology and change tracks using steering wheel-mounted controls.
The 8-inch WVGA color touchscreen display is integrated with the Infiniti hard drive navigation system, 3D building guidance, lane guidance and NavTraffic with real-time traffic information. The most commendable technological features include power sliding sunroof, intelligent key, tri-zone automatic temperature control system, mild-flow vent, Around View® monitor with moving object detection and Bluetooth hands-free phone system.
For the Infiniti QX4, we would say that its most stand out feature is its body structure, which is quite strong. An online reviewer said that the doors on the Infiniti QX4 are so strong that if they were left open and a saloon car ran into them, the saloon car would suffer more damage than the door of the Infiniti QX4.
