Off-road flagship of the Infiniti with the birth of focus on markets in North America and the Middle East and very well sold there. We have a cars price is also uneven breathing, but the QX80, that is, not in the top ten. For 2017, the owners found a total of 485 cars, whereas the Lexus LX has sold 5135 copies. Probably, therefore in Russia the updated QX80 brought only in the beginning of this summer, although he made his debut last year at the November motor show in Dubai — looks like the pause it took to sell the “pre-reform” of the machine.

I look at it like a tourist the towers of Moscow-city. A giant! In Dubai we already felt the novelty (ZR, No. 1, 2018) and noted the amazing similarity with conception Infiniti QX80 Monograph. For the restyling — great job! Still he looked frankly dull. Russian machines chrome parts are additionally treated with a protective coating to chic not shabby after the first winter.

Back QX80 is not changed radically: edited the shape of the bumper, lights and tailgate.Back QX80 is not changed radically: edited the shape of the bumper, lights and tailgate.

Get on the bandwagon (they are now a couple of inches wider), dive into the driver’s seat and awake V‑shaped “eight” power of 405 HP, hooked to a 7-speed automatic. This couple settled here back in 2010 and still does not want to put on the threshold of no diesel, no hybrid technology. But the attempts were: in the experiment, the engineers have installed on the QX80 a 5.2‑liter diesel engine from the Nissan Titan pickup truck, but the car was frankly heavy.

Sooner or later the situation will change, in the meantime I’m enjoying brutal aspirated, three-ton machine accelerates to hundreds in just 7.5 seconds and with a thirst for tired Bedouin devastating stolitrovyh the gas tank. To burn in the city of 20 liters per hundred and more? No problem! At current gasoline prices it is possible to scare drivers no worse than holders of foreign currency mortgages.

Revved the motor is good, but somewhere far away and very quiet. Even when I press the gas to the floor and beloved will leave me in the back, talking with sitting in the second row without raising his voice.

On a flat road QX80 floats gently and gradually, thanks to retuned shock absorbers and a special version of tyres Bridgestone Dueler H/T. Especially for Infiniti released a version with soft sidewalls — they are straight sent to the pipeline. The tire size is the same — 275/50 R22, and externally indistinguishable from conventional Dueler from the store.

However, padishah I feel only as long as the wheels are not sliding on the asphalt pockmarked with endless patches. Each patch Infiniti brings to me through the seat, with a comb and the car shakes. Whether it was necessary to reinvent the wheel? The same Lexus offers a more practical 18‑inch shoes.

Offroad Arsenal the same: integrated frame and quarter of a meter of ground clearance and all-wheel drive with electronic clutch to drive the front wheels and a simulated locking center differential. There are decreasing number, which is automatically disabled at speeds above 40 km/h.

The front room is hanging very low and treacherously protruding. On steep descents it easily touches the ground — we turned it twice.The front room is hanging very low and treacherously protruding. On steep descents it easily touches the ground — we turned it twice.

The modes are chosen by the washer. In automatic time moves forward with the slip of the rear wheels, in 4H locks the clutch and 4L included “panjika”. Sounds solid, however, locking rear differential, like on the Lexus, not here, but on rough terrain I always strike too low-hanging a room on the sand.

The most interesting “trick” — salon mirror features the image from the rear camera. Thanks to him, blind areas behind just yet. HDR-the camera sees not only the road, but both the roadside — eliminates the need to look in the side mirror. But you need to get used to. The camera zooms close in the wing mirrors of the car far away, and the saloon — close. And in this clever mirror can not see the passengers — a very unusual feeling!

On a salon mirror, you can display the image from the rear camera. The camera is positioned behind the glass tailgate, in its upper part. Because of this the driver can get rid of dead zones. But the passengers mirror will not be seen…For the salon mirror can display the image from the rear camera. The camera is positioned behind the glass tailgate, in its upper part.

Competitors QX will not magically disappear in “Wonderland”. Restyled QX80 will overtake the sales of the Lexus LX, but the chance to improve the situation there. Infiniti valued for monumentality and a spacious lounge — now it’s all “wrapped” in a nice modern exterior. And it is not found in this premium quarter, a more affordable apartment on wheels.
