2019 Infiniti QX60 design of the exterior
As for the external appearance, the 2019 Infiniti QX60 will return with the same styling as the current version. However, the carmaker has introduced the all-new Limited trim level for 2019 which will slightly differ from the standard model.
So, the Infiniti QX60 will keep the same sleek and rounded design with the brand’s familiar design of the grille which is adorned with chrome details and headlamps. Looking from the profile, the Infiniti QX60 features a slightly sloping roofline which doesn’t reduce the interior space.
On the other hand, the new QX60 Limited model will get a slightly revised exterior styling. So, the Limited version will get the darker details all over the body. On the front fascia, we will notice more dark chrome accents on the grille and around fog lights and door moldings. The carmaker has added more dark details to the roof rails and cross bars. As well, the bumper will feature some glossy black touches. Furthermore, the vehicle will get a unique badging, the LIMITED. However, what we might see as the most noticeable change is the new wheels of 20-inches which will have a unique design and dark color. They will come with 235/55R20 all-season tires.
The interior design of the 2019 Infiniti QX60
The QX60 is a perfect choice for families because of its spacious, comfortable, and quality interior. It has three rows of seats among which the first and the second-row seats are the best. The third row is the best for children but also for smaller adults. As well, they are easy to access. The QX60 comes with leather upholstery, even in the base trim.
