Infiniti QX80 Monograph breaks cover

Infiniti has revealed the first look of its QX80 Monograph, a new concept which previews the next-generation QX80 flagship SUV. Set for global debut at the New York Auto Show this month, the QX80 Monograph explores “upscale luxury and signaling the Infiniti’s intention to further develop its standing in the full-size luxury SUV segment”.

Bearing similar striking details from the company’s earlier concepts, the QX80 Monograph features the latest evolution of the brand’s double arch grille, which appears wider, more rigid and more angular than before. There are also new matrix LED headlights and taut, muscular lines flowing over sculpted surfaces. At the rear the crescent-cut D-pillar has been reshaped.

The dynamic design seems almost production ready and looks nothing like the current generation model (below), which is largely based on the Nissan Patrol.

Infiniti says the new concept combines luxury with a commanding presence and demonstrates the high levels of space and utility for which the QX80 production car is renowned. Originating at Infiniti’s design studio in Atsugi, Japan, the QX80 Monograph is “the ultimate expression of futuristic luxury SUV design and illustrates how the design of the QX80 could evolve”.

“The QX80 Monograph represents a detailed study into our expertise of exterior design,” said Roland Krueger, President of Infiniti. “QX80 Monograph shows our concept of luxury and style on the road, and is an exploration into how we could enhance our future Infiniti offering in the luxury SUV segment.”
