Infiniti QX80 Monograph reimagines the huge, unapologetic SUV

Infiniti may be best known for its curvaceous Red Sport coupes and sedans today, but the automaker is looking to step up its game in the luxury large SUV segment wth something very much like this, the Infiniti QX80 Monograph. Described as a "design study" for the New York International Auto Show 2017, the bold SUV won't see a launch as-is, but cues are likely to appear on whatever Infiniti brings to market. If the response is good, though, there's a fair chance that some of the bolder elements.

2017 Infiniti Q50 3.0t Sport AWD Review

2017 Infiniti Q50 3.0t Sport AWD Review

There's more to Infiniti's enthusiast's cars than Red Sport, a fact that the 2017 Q50 3.0t Sport AWD would like to underline. It may not have the highest tuning, but with 300 horsepower underneath its well-styled flanks there's plenty of reasons to bypass BMW's showroom and opt for a something more out of the ordinary. That's Infiniti's case on paper, anyway, but does the Q50S deliver on the road?

2017 Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 Review

2017 Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 Review

Could the 2017 Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 be the prettiest car the Japanese automaker has ever made? Leaving aside curvaceous but impractical concepts, I suspect the answer is yes, but Infiniti hasn't been swayed by glamour alone. Sitting at the top of the Q60 Coupe tree with 400 HP, the Red Sport variant doesn't just want to look good, it wants to be the kiss of death to BMW and Audi grand tourers in the process.

2017 Infiniti Q60 First Drive: Seeing Red

2017 Infiniti Q60 First Drive: Seeing Red

In an industry increasingly driven by bottom-line bolstering SUVs that cater to sales volume over anything resembling a passion for driving or design, the 2017 Infiniti Q60 is a ray of hope. Here is a car staged to take part in the vanishingly small sliver of the market given over to premium coupes - a segment devastated by the transition away from personal luxury to sport-utilities in the late 90s - and yet the investment made in the completely redesigned Q60's every detail firmly communicates Infiniti's commitment to taking on leaders from BMW (the 4 Series), Mercedes-Benz (the C-Class) and Audi (the A5).

2017 Infiniti QX30 First-Drive

The 2017 Infiniti QX30 is Japanese designed, built in post-Brexit Britain, with German parts and engineering, and packaged for crossover-loving America: if that doesn't earn it the title of a "global car", I'm not sure what would. Taking over the reins of guiding new-to-brand buyers into the Infiniti family from the now-deceased G-series sedan, the QX30 arrives with high ambitions indeed, proudly setting its sights on the small, luxury crossovers from BMW and Audi.

Infiniti QX Sport Inspiration lays the foundation for the future

Some car makers are realizing that sports cars aren't the hot sellers they once used to be. Infiniti believes that the future will be in mid-sized premium SUVs. To carry it to that future, the car maker is unveiling the QX Sport Inspiration, a concept SUV that will become the seedbed of a new line of premium SUVs that Infiniti plans to take the market by storm. While sporting the same iconic designs as previous Infiniti SUVs, the QX Sport Inspiration almost literally stretches those cues to transform the QX series into an SUV that exudes personality whether at rest but especially in motion.

2016 Infiniti QX60 First Drive

Much of Infiniti's recent success has come from its crossover line-up, where it presents three distinctly different choices for luxury-seeking families. Sandwiched between the entry-level QX50 and the high performance QX70 sits the 2016 Infiniti QX60, the logically-numbered full-size hauler that combines respectable room and a comprehensive level of advanced safety, all wrapped in a premium package. Although no major changes have been made for the current model year, the QX60 has been gently refreshed to keep it current with its line-up mates and continue its task of drawing fresh blood to showrooms.
