A kind of nifty tire pressure system uses the tire pressure monitor to flash the lights and beep the horn when you reach optimum pressure filling the tires at a filling station.

The Infiniti QX80 certainly looks the part of big, burly and tough, but we've haven't had the chance to actually assess how it holds up against safety tests yet. Despite the fact that neither of the national agencies that crash test cars have rated the QX so far, we've given a score for its long list of advanced safety features.

In lieu of a traditional rearview camera, Infiniti equips the QX installs its Around View camera, a set of lenses that stitches together a set of exterior views for a 180-degree look at potential obstacles. This year, the Around View monitor adds cross-traffic alerts. Dual front, side, and curtain airbags are standard, as are stability control and anti-lock brakes; active headrests; and tire-pressure monitors.

Infiniti offers some of the latest safety technology as options on the QX80 as well. Buyers can opt for adaptive cruise control with Distance Control Assist, which slows it down when the system detects obstacles ahead. A blind-spot warning system and a lane departure warning system are available, as is a lane-departure prevention system that gently nudges the QX back into a lane when sensors think you’re wandering off the mark. Think twice before you're sold on the idea, though--we think they create too much audible and haptic interference for skilled drivers.

Visibility gets a little dicey at the rear quarters, especially if you’re carrying a full complement of people, but the QX80’s big mirrors and drop-away fenders help in parking and cruising with confidence.

Conclusion

There haven't been any recent crash tests of the QX80, but there's no tech deficit.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
