The Infiniti QX80 is already a magnificent vehicle. As big as a luxury yacht and with the power to match – not to mention space for seven adults to enjoy its sumptuous interior – the QX80 faithfully follows the Infiniti design themes and transposes the swooping lines well to a larger vehicle.
Now Infiniti plan to evolve its presence in the large luxury SUV market with its new ‘Monograph’ design study. The new concept combines luxury whilst maximizing the already impressive interior space for which the QX80 is famous. In fact, Infiniti’s design studio in Atsugi, Japan, have pushed the boundaries with the QX80 Monograph ensuring it to be a definitive statement of indulgence, clearly showing the way that the QX80 could develop beyond it’s already impressive status.
“The QX80 Monograph represents a detailed study into our expertise of exterior design,” says Roland Krueger, President of Infiniti Motor Company Ltd. “The 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.”
The QX80 Monograph certainly sticks closely to Infiniti’s distinctive and unique design, with an elegance that’s definitely pleasing to the eye thanks to its blend of straight lines and curves. The iconic Infiniti grille features prominently, but differs from the regular QX80 creating a strong focal point of the new vehicle. The overall effect is an impressive appearance on the road.
The QX80 Monograph is to be unveiled in New York, US, and as soon as it is I look forward to getting behind the wheel. The proof of the pudding is in the eating, so this is something I'm looking forward to tasting.
