If you’re in the market for a bespoke luxury SUV, Infiniti Australia is introducing the QX70 S Design for the local lineup. It brings a number of unique highlights in the fashionable dark theme.
Based on the QX70, which is the new name for the FX37, the S Design is available with either a 3.7-litre naturally aspirated V6 petrol or a 3.0-litre turbo-diesel V6. The petrol unit produces 235kW, while the diesel churns out 175kW and 550Nm.
Distinguishing features for the S Design include a set of gob-smacking 21-inch black alloy wheels. These match the black and chrome front grille, black side air vents, side mirrors, roof rails, and dark chrome trimmings.
Like the regular QX70 S Premium, the new addition comes packed with advanced features and luxury appointments as standard. There’s forward collision warning, intelligent brake assist, an around-view monitor, and a plush leather upholstery.
The S Design also gets exclusive purple stitching for the steering wheel and gear lever, and when optioned in Graphite colour, there’s also purple stitching for the seats, door trims, and centre arm rest. Infiniti Cars Australia managing director Jean-Philippe Roux said,
“Together, these detail touches enhance the QX70’s already expressive design. The QX70 is one of the most recognisable crossovers on the market and this new S-Design’s added hint of aggression speaks directly to the performance credentials of this vehicle.”
Infiniti is offering special drive-away prices starting from $85,900 until October 1, but after that the standard retail prices will be as follows (excluding on-roads):
Infiniti QX70 S Design V6 petrol – $88,900
Infiniti QX70 S Design V6 diesel – $90,900
