The first teaser photo of the upcoming 2021 Infiniti QX55 appears online, and we can say that the carmaker did excellent work. The new crossover coupe looks gorgeous, and we can expect no less the same to happen inside. From the information that we got, Infiniti will launch five completely new models in the next three years, and the first of them is teased Infiniti QX55.
The approaching Infiniti QX55 slots between models QX50 and QX60 models, and it offers a unique look. The carmaker will use more quality materials than on the QX60. Also, QX55 will borrow some cues from both models above. Generally, we can expect more tech to be implanted into the new QX55 model. Under the bonnet is lying down a 2.0-liter VC-Turbo engine that will provide great fuel-efficient.
2021 Infiniti QX55 Design
The latest 2021 Infiniti QX55 model is announced and we have an exclusive teaser image. This crossover will feature a “sportier” and coupe-esque design than the sibling QX50. Dimensionally is bigger than QX50 and smaller than QX60.
Design-wise, the 2021 Infiniti QX55 is much less coupe-like than other SUVs, for example, BMW X6. Thanks to that, the newest QX55 will get more space inside for sure. We must add that the roofline is inspired by its iconic first-generation FX performance crossover. Despite the flatter roof, the teased QX55 also reveals fastback style liftgate, a short rear windscreen, and a large roof spoiler that gives a sportier look.
At this moment, there is no available image that can describe how the cabin looks like in the QX55. However, we are sure that the upcoming QX55 will offer a lot of luxury. From some reports, the new crossover will borrow most of the cues from the QX60. So, we can expect a great arranged cabin with quality materials. Comfort is guaranteed even on the base model. Leather upholstery will be optional as some of the safety features. Infiniti will also introduce a new infotainment system that will use the same 8-inch touch screen display as the QX60 model.
As we already mentioned, this model slots between QX50 and QX60 models, so we can assume that there will be a spacious cabin. Coupe crossover offers a sloping roof that will likely affect the rear-seat headroom and cargo area. Standard safety equipment on the new QX55 includes blind-spot monitoring, forward emergency braking, and forward-collision warning system.
