CARS.COM — The Infiniti QX50 concept bowed this week at the 2017 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, revealing a near-production-ready evolution of its former self, the QX Sport Inspiration concept. The mid-size SUV appears poised to join the Nissan luxury brand’s lineup between the QX30 and QX60.
The QX50 retains much of the exterior styling inspired by the QX Sport Inspiration, just a little toned down. A large, latticed Infiniti grille flanked by gaping intakes defines the QX50’s front end, as “human-eye” LED headlights sound creepy but look cool. Smooth contours span the shapely profile, with the side view also defined by a tapering roofline.
The concept also serves as a preview platform for Nissan’s ProPilot suite of existing and future self-driving tech. The feature purportedly has the capability to act as a co-pilot to take over some routine tasks from the driver in situations like stop-and-go traffic.
