    Infiniti QX80 Review: A good SUV, but a better one is probably coming - Roadshow

    The Good The many driver's aids can be customized for easy access via a steering wheel button. Strong acceleration and handling characteristics belie the SUV's large footprint. The Bad The QX80 sports an ugly mug and pretty terrible fuel economy. Looking down from my perch I could see over the roofs of the three cars ahead of me. On my left I could practically reach out and shake hands with the guy riding shotgun in a large delivery truck.

    It's available in two-wheel or four-wheel drive as well as in the limited-production Signature Edition. While the refreshed QX80 recently debuted in Dubai, the company sent me a model in the uber-luxe Limited trim line, with dark chrome trim on the outside and an interior that looks like the a leather version of the chocolate river from Willy Wonka's factory.

    When the QX80 arrived at Roadshow HQ, I jumped in as quickly as possible, not only to experience the spacious interior but also to avoid looking at the hideous front end. The QX80 has a face only a mother could love and even then I don't think my mom could muster up any affection for this beast's appearance. But hey, it's what's inside that counts. Infiniti wraps everything in leather, including the speaker grilles, and where there isn't leather there is open pore matte finish ash wood trim.

    San Francisco can be a bit chilly, so I thumbed on the heated seats and steering wheel as I continued my drive through the city. Traffic loosened up and my right foot got a bit heavier.

    The large inch wheels make the ride more harsh than I would like over the rough city streets. The smaller inch wheels on lower trim lines would make for a more comfy commute, but then, they don't look as fly as 22s.

    Regardless, I sped along to my destination, following the car in front of me at what I deemed to be an appropriate distance. Apparently the QX80 had other ideas. As its Distance Control Assist kicked in, I felt the gas pedal actively push up against my foot.

    I decided to let it ride and as the car ahead came to a red light, the QX80 braked to a full stop behind it, with no help from me. While this technology might work well in suburban areas, leaving a large gap in front of you in the city is just begging to be cut off. After digging through some menus, I turned the system off. I don't need that kind of technology in my life. What I do need in my life while driving the large-and-in-charge QX80 is blind spot warning.

    2017 infiniti qx80 review

    The SUV is nearly 17 and a half feet long and over six and a half feet wide; changing lanes to the right can be dangerous. Numerous times the visual and audible warnings kept me from running into a smaller vehicle or motorcycle. The chimes were enough to stop me, but for those who refuse to take the hint, the QX80 will also brake one side of the vehicle to guide itself back into the correct lane. The lanes in San Francisco tend to be on the narrow side, so I found lane departure warning and prevention to be helpful in navigating this beast through the city.

    Both work much like the blind spot technology, with warnings and then braking if I crossed lane markers without signaling. Also needed in my heavy-traffic life is adaptive cruise control. The QX80 can lock on to the car in front, staying at a predetermined distance during stop-and-go traffic.
