Infiniti has confirmed its QX80 SUV is heading to Australia, with prices starting from $110,900 plus on-road costs.

As reported by TMR in early May, the QX80’s arrival means a rethink on the position of Nissan’s V8 Patrol 4WD in the local market

As such, the Japanese carmaker took the knife to Patrol pricing in a significant way at the start of July, cutting the price of the now entry-level Ti in the V8 range to $69,990 plus on-roads.

That left some breathing space for the QX80 price-wise, and its $110,990 starting price undercuts the Toyota LandCruiser-based Lexus LX 570’s $134,700 starting price by $23,800.

The QX80 is the new range-topper for Infiniti in Australia, sitting above the sportier and smaller QX70 SUV in the line-up.

Power comes from the same 5.6 litre V8 petrol engine motivating the V8 Patrol, making 298kW and 560Nm. Drive reaches the road via a seven-speed automatic transmission and Infiniti’s All-Mode 4X4 drive system.

The QX80 comes standard with Hydraulic Body Motion Control (HBMC), which Infiniti says reduces body-roll during high-speed cornering while allowing maximum suspension travel during off-road driving.

Inside, the QX80 is capable of accommodating eight passengers in a two / three / three format.

Features include a 15-speaker premium audio system and a separate entertainment system for second row passengers along with a leather-wrapped and heated steering wheel.

Safety features include blind spot monitoring, distance control assist for the cruise control, predictive forward-collision warning capable of monitoring two cars ahead along with lane departure warning and lane departure prevention systems.

The maximum rating for towing is 3500kg.

“The QX80 is among the most luxurious and generously appointed SUVs available in the world,” Infiniti Australia Managing Director, Jean-Philippe Roux, said.

“It is spacious, elegant and has an incredible presence, and its arrival in Australia will position Infiniti squarely in this important vehicle segment.”

Infiniti says the QX80 is one of the first in 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 QX70 S Design SUV all seeing new models or Australian debuts in the coming months.

The 2015 Infiniti QX80 SUV goes on sale this month, with Infiniti to confirm local features and specifications soon.
