It was designed for the American market and American tastes, and while we would generally say that ‘looks are subjective’, in this case it’s actually objective. There are issues, though, not least of which include the lingering similarities to the Nissan Patrol, which serves as the basis of the QX80.

Unless otherwise stated, all prices are shown as Manufacturer's The QX80 has coil springs all-round and it was only ever caught out when it thumped through a couple of surprise potholes along a dirt road. It did, however, feel top-heavy at times and revealed substantial body-roll when pushed around corners at speed or even during some sections of slow, bouncy off-roading, so I’d be reluctant to experience what it would be like without hydraulic body motion control. If you’re interested, you can access the full specification information from the Infiniti Cars website. Amongst the standard wagons it is about the biggest there is, it is comfortable, spacious, luxurious and yet like its Nissan cousin, slightly misses the mark. Infiniti uses a slightly different infotainment system to Nissan for instance, though it’s not even close to the systems offered by rivals in terms of technology or connectivity.

Will it redefine the 4WD tyre segment. So, jump on board, strap yourself in and let’s start out on the journey with The Car Guy. It also feels a little bit like I stepped back in time to the 1980s. It’s actually the same engine family as the one found in the Nissan V8 Supercar team. The QX80 is certainly big and brash, and for 2018 it’s also (a little) easier on the eye.

The good news is it comes with ISOFIX child seat anchor points which, of all the cars Infiniti Australia now sells, make the most sense in the QX80. It’s not meant to be fast and that become very evident the moment we found some twisty roads on the way from Hobart to Launceston. The new QX80’s bonnet is 20mm higher than before and has been extended 90mm; the side steps have been stretched 20mm wider, and the power tailgate has been re-designed to include sharper, thinner, rear LED taillights and the bumper is visually wider. Our comprehensive reviews include detailed ratings on Price and Features, Design, Practicality, Engine, Fuel Consumption, Ownership, Driving & Safety. To me it has a front end that only a mother could love and a rear end that Kim Kardashian would be proud of. That’s to go with a 360-degree camera system displayed on the 8.0-inch infotainment screen, where you’ll also find satellite navigation, but not digital radio or smartphone mirroring like CarPlay or Android Auto. At a retail price of $110,900 plus on-road costs, the QX80 is also almost $24,000 more expensive than the top-spec Nissan Patrol V8 Ti-L, and almost $41,000 pricier than the entry Ti. The bulk of the facelifted QX80’s design changes have been to the exterior and include, most noticeably, new LED headlights with a redesigned, sleeker but more aggressive front end than its predecessor’s softer, more rounded curves.

If you’re up-front you’re well catered for; big glovebox; overhead sunglasses storage; the centre console now has a roomy smartphone storage area; the twin cupholders have been upsized to cop two 1.3-litre cups with handles (up from one 1.3-litre cup and a 950ml container); the USB port has been moved to the other side of the centre console so it’s easier to get to; the storage area under the front passenger arm-rest is now a 5.4-litre compartment, able to hold up to three upright 1.0-litre bottles or tablet devices. Second-row passengers now get 8.0-inch entertainment screens (up from 7.0-inch) and two additional USB ports.

And if you refer to the Green Vehicle Guide, you’ll see that my results are pretty much spot on with the published ‘combined’ numbers. To answer the original question, does it make sense over a Nissan Patrol? It does of course gain a whole heap of additional features over its Nissan counterpart. It sells in ridiculously small numbers, say less than 100 a year, but is important as a flagship model. With this in mind, the real question is why would you buy one over the Patrol? Recommended List Price (MRLP) inclusive of GST, exclusive of options and on road costs. This is down the the mammoth price cuts Nissan announced on its biggest SUV just last month. Changes to the QX80 include an updated front end that makes a bold statement with bold proportions and a commanding posture. The Infiniti QX80 looks big, and it is, like its Nissan cousin. it in no way construes any sort of affiliation with the advertiser.
