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.
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.
