The 2017 Infiniti QX70 Limited debuts this week at the 2016 New York Auto Show. It follows the previous QX80 Limited with a higher-end exterior and interior trim, but nothing too big. The Infiniti Advanced airbag system offers to fit dual-stage airbags for additional sensors with inflation rates depending on crash severity and seat belt use. Front-seat-mounted side-impact supplemental air bags help to extra protection for front seat occupants. 2017 QX70 Dak Mounted curtain supplemental air bags deploy from the headliner above the windows, help give outboard occupants improved head protection in certain side impact and rollover events.
Front-seat active head restraints help whiplash-type injuries, seat belt pre-tensioners work to help passengers in the event of certain types of collision, and Zone Body construction helps to keep the integrity of the passenger compartment intact. All Infiniti QX70 2017 models are ways Infiniti technology helps provide a more comfortable and safer driving experience.
2017 Infiniti QX70 Exterior
On the outside, the 2017 Infiniti QX70 Limited gets a revised front fascia with LED daytime running lights replacing the fog lights, a new grille design that will eventually multiply all QX70 models, and a few detail changes such as body-color side vents , a stainless steel rear bumper protector, and dark outside mirror housings. There is also a bit of bling in the form of model-specific painted 21-inch alloy wheels. The basic QX70 styling is a little coupe-like, as it was long before any of the words “ BMW X6” or heard “ Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe.”
