Infiniti has given its QX70 SUV the special edition treatment.
The QX70 will be available in Australia as the ‘S Design’ variant from this month; a dressed-up variant based on the range-topping S Premium model and available with either V6 petrol or V6 turbo-diesel engines.
Power outputs match those of the S Premium, with 235kW/360Nm available from the 3.7 litre V6 petrol engine while the 3.0 litre V6 turbo-diesel is good for 175kW and 550Nm.
Drive is sent to all four wheels via a seven-speed automatic transmission.
The S Design is identifiable by a number of dark exterior highlights, including black and dark chrome front grille, air vents and side vents.
Black 21-inch alloy wheels are also fitted, along with black roof rails and a dark chrome finish to the front fog lamps and tailgate.
Inside, the S Design is finished in a 'graphite colour scheme' with purple stitching around the leather-wrapped steering wheel, seats, doors, armrest and gear-shift lever.
“Together, these detailed touches enhance the QX70’s already expressive design,” Infiniti Australia Managing Director, Jean-Philippe Roux, said.
“The QX70 is one of the most recognisable crossovers on the market and this new S Design’s added hint of aggression speaks directly to the performance credentials of this vehicle.”
Infiniti says the QX70 S Design is one of the first of a wave of new models for the Australian market, with the Q30, QX30, a production version of the Q60 Concept 2+2 coupe and the QX80 SUV all seeing new models or Australian debuts in the coming months.
The Infiniti QX70 S Design is available now, with prices starting from $88,900 for the petrol-powered version, and $90,900 for the turbo-diesel - plus on-road costs.
However, Infiniti is offering special drive-away pricing until the end of September, which sees the petrol model priced at $85,900 and the diesel $2000 more expensive at $87,900.
