Obtain the midlevel SE trim. The SE features a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t be worried about a stiff ride, although the SE continues to be relatively comfortable on the road. The SE is also a great bargain considering most of the safety and tech equipment you obtain for the money. Finally, the SE can be acquired with a wide range of options, in order to pick and choose those are right for the budget.
Crossover SUVs could be all of the rage, but there’s still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the 2020 Infiniti QX80. Coming off a redesign just last year, the 2020 Infiniti QX80 is just a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with lots of standard safety equipment and plenty of options to decide on from.
As has been the case for some time, you can get the 2020 Infiniti QX80 with a four-cylinder engine or perhaps a stronger V6, or you may get the miserly 2020 Infiniti QX80 Hybrid. On the highway, the 2020 Infiniti QX80 is comfortable and compliant. 2020 Infiniti QX80 also offers two sporty versions that infuse the 2020 Infiniti QX80 with a bit of extra personality. Inside, the 2020 Infiniti QX80 provides a simple yet feature-packed cabin, particularly if you choose one of many upper trim levels. There are plenty of options to choose from along the way.
The 2020 Infiniti QX80 can be as competent because they come. It’s well-priced on the whole, and modern feature content helps it be supremely easy to drive. If you’re searching for something with much more class and space than the usual small sedan, the 2020 Infiniti QX80 might just be the sedan for you.
The 2020 Infiniti QX80 is the base trim. It includes a relatively light load of features which includes 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every 2020 Infiniti QX80 Safety Sense, which really is a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On the next rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and a vehicle alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You can consider the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with a number of additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a more impressive 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Most of the features found on the upper trim levels can be included with the lower trim levels as options. Other notable options add a sunroof, a JBL speakers coupled with an integrated navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the 2020 Infiniti QX80 stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the back seat is simple to fold down to suit longer items. There are enough cabin storage options to make many people happy. Loading a vehicle seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good however not stellar. The forward center console bin is ideal for concealing items but features a hard, slippery floor, so that they slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is a decent size, and there are modest door pockets in the front and rear that are great for small water bottles only.
The 2020 Infiniti QX80 has a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles allow it to be simple to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
Child safety seat accommodation
It’s super easy to mount a vehicle seat, with obvious and readily available lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s enough room so that the front seat will not need to be scooted completely forward.
