The 2017 INFINITI QX60 Redefines Vehicle Safety with Cutting-Edge Technologies
Arabian Automobiles Company, the exclusive dealer for INFINITI in Dubai, Sharjah and the Northern Emirates, unveiled last year the completely redesigned QX60 to the region. For MY2017, the model features additional enhancements that are aimed at empowering the driver with a more premium experience – a model that redefines vehicle safety with cutting edge technologies.
Making its UAE debut, the 2017 seven-passenger SUV features a state-of-the-art suite of safety features that offers customers a unique combination of comfort, control and security.
The QX60 features advanced technologies from the front to the rear of the vehicle that help drivers to safely navigate the busy motorways and prevent collisions from all angles. Predictive Forward Collision Warning – a highly attuned system that continuously monitors not only the vehicle directly ahead but the one ahead of that as well – provides alerts and tightens the driver’s seat belt if potential risks are detected. The QX60 also has your back, with a Backup Collision Intervention system that warns drivers when reversing of vehicles approaching the rear of the car, and helps to avoid accidents by applying the brakes. Those safety features serve to heighten driver awareness and speed reaction times during peak traffic hours, allowing for a confident drive at any time of day.
For ultimate road safety and peace of mind when travelling with children, family and loved ones, the car is also equipped with the brake assistance which helps prevent collisions via its Advanced Warning Forward Emergency Brake system and Forward Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection. This adds a further dimension of security by identifying pedestrians that enter the vehicle’s path – a huge advantage for drivers in populated city centres.
The QX60’s intelligent technologies serve to give drivers a new and improved perspective on their surroundings. The Around View® Monitor with Moving Object Detection and Front and Rear Sonar System alerts drivers of both moving and stationary objects detected close by, and makes an easy job of manoeuvring and parking in tight spaces thanks to four cameras and a virtual 360° view that provide panoramic vision. The QX60’s leading technology also takes care of the notorious blind spot with its Blind Spot Warning and Blind Spot Intervention® Systems. The systems use finely calibrated sensors to alert drivers with warning lights and sounds when vehicles enter the blind spot, and will even apply opposite side brakes to guide vehicles safely back to the centre of the driving lane. Drivers on vast six or even seven lane motorways will find that keeping a true line has never been easier, with the QX60’s Lane Departure Warning and Lane Departure Prevention Systems. The systems monitor lane markings and corrects drifts by applying brakes on the opposite side of the vehicle to ease the car back into the centre of the lane. A dedicated Lane Guidance function is also incorporated into the car’s comprehensive Navigation System, guiding drivers to exactly where they need to be for exits and interchanges, even in busy streets or unfamiliar territory.
Whether out on the open road or in the middle of traffic, the QX60’s intelligent technologies put drivers effortlessly in control of the moment for ultimate safety at every step of the journey. While being one of the safest 7 seat crossovers in its segment, the QX60 also delivers a premium motoring experience that has been enhanced with Intelligent All-Wheel Drive featuring an efficient and powerful 3.5 litre V6 gasoline engine that delivers 295hp (+30hp) at 6,400 rpm with a torque output of 350NM (+24) at 4,800rpm.
On the technology front, the QX60 also delivers in spades. Rear passengers can now enjoy a greater viewing pleasure with larger dual 8 inch headrest monitors. The infotainment system has also been improved with a single screen system with the signature INFINITI InTouch with Navigation. The audio system also gets an upgrade as the QX60 now comes equipped with the new Bose Center Point 2.0 Channel system with Driver Stage Audio. Down to the very last detail, the QX60 is meticulous in its design, even including Remote Engine Start and a Motion Activated Tailgate –this unique technology allows users to simply swipe their foot in a ‘kicking motion’ under the rear bumper and this action causes the lift-agate to open automatically – allowing for a true hands-free operation.
The QX60’s Navigation System also serves to enhance the ride, offering the choice of either a 2D overhead view or a 3D birds-eye-view perspective, allowing for intuitive navigation that makes the driver the master of their journey – whether navigating complicated one-way systems or journeying to new destinations.
Reflecting Arabian Automobiles Company’s customer-centric philosophy, INFINITI is offering on the QX60 with 100% of your down Payment paid by INFINITI, 5 years complementary service, complementary insurance, 5 years extended warranty, and a courtesy car when servicing your INFINITI.
For a thrilling glimpse into the QX60’s ground-breaking safety features and inimitable ride, customers are encouraged to visit the INFINITI Centers across Dubai or Northern Emirates for a test drive that will deliver a premium motoring experience and serve as a testament to the QX60’s global acclaim.
