Infiniti is already known for producing high-luxury cars and exclusive vehicle. So we have no doubt that the future model is going to have a lot of comfort to it and some contemporary and modern features as well. This year with the 2017 model they are concentrating on making the exterior of the car more appealing and pleasant looking, which means that we are expecting a step forward in the design part for the vehicle.
But the 2017 QX60 does not stop there, it has a few other cards up its sleeve. It will enhance the performance of the car and make it even more powerful. With a bigger and stronger engine expect that the specs are going to be much higher.
Of course, in order to enhance the performance some other engineering details except a new engine need to be utilized. So the car is going to add aluminum and carbon fiber trims to make it much lighter as well. This is going to help it compete against such new releases as the 2017 Audi Q7.

2017 Infiniti QX60 exterior
The 2017 Infiniti QX60 is going to be designed greatly on the outside. As this has already been a beautiful looking brand and one which had a lot of nice cues and details to it, they are continuing with it as well. One of the trademarks of the QX60 is making very comfortable cars with some exclusive parts and details to it, but this year they are planning to build upon its exterior and make it much more attractive.
The design starts with adding some new fog lamps and redesigning the bumper part. The added air intakes do not account for a new styling for the car but add a significant purpose to the new design. The larger air intakes are placed there to cool the engine a bit more and make the performance even better.
The classy part which is added to the front end of the car is a new chrome grille. This goes well with the exclusive nature of the QX60 vehicle and the Infiniti brand. The added parts which also enhance the exclusiveness are the newly designed headlights.
The taillights retain the same shape as before but both the front and back sides add LED features that enhance the quality and the usefulness of the car. It makes the vehicle look much better now and also bring a new quality to it. Some rumors say that the car is going to add a new suspension system but no confirmation has been made on that. But the latest changes come with the wheels as the car is going to add some new alloy 18-inch wheels.
The interior of the 2017 Infiniti QX60 is going to be as comfortable and spacious as it ever was. The users are going to be granted much comfort and a large amount of gadgets and additions that are going to make the inside a lot of more useful and comfortable.
Something that is new for the brand is that it is going to be able to fit 7 passengers now and the seating arrangement is going to be refurnished. The seats are being fitted with only the finest leather materials so the comfort is going to be one of the advantages of the car.
The control panel of the car receives a boost and a light refresh. They are not going to tamper much with the styling as they aim to keep it mostly the same, but they are planning to add a lot of useful equipment and additions inside of it. In the middle you will find a 8-inch touch screen which uses an updated infotainment system and adds navigation, AC controls, cruise control, paring services, a rearview camera, traction controls, connectivity via USB, Bluetooth and iPod connection and of course a WiFi hot spot for your personal use.
In order to make the vehicle more competitive there is going to be an updated powertrain added.
