For a long time the auto world seemed segmented, saying that an SUV or crossover needed to be large, bulky, and cumbersome. It held that the exhilarating look and handling of a coupe and the functionality of the SUV were two mutually exclusive things. Well, the recently refreshed 2016 Infiniti QX50 now available at Auto West Infiniti in Richmond, British Columbia, is challenging those assumptions, all by itself.
This is not a crossover for someone looking to haul nine passengers and four jet-ski's. Rather, the new Infiniti QX50 borrows the bold wavy curves of the Infiniti Q50 and incorporates them enticingly into this small luxury crossover that jets down the BC highways. Enough space for your everyday needs, the outstanding responsiveness of a coupe, and the interior refinement of a luxury vehicle, all at a price that makes it the most affordable of all 2016 Infiniti models.
Whether you are seeking the new 2016 Infiniti QX50, or the older model EX Series, you can find either for lease or purchase at our Richmond Infiniti dealership. Located in the Richmond Auto Mall, we are a convenient and worthwhile visit for Infiniti shoppers in the nearby communities of Burnaby, North Vancouver, White Rock, and the lower mainland area.
For something that you're going to be spending a lot of time in, Infiniti sure takes this into consideration with their design for the new 2016 Infiniti QX50. For 2016, the wheelbase was stretched for improved rear legroom as well as a smoother ride. The rear 60/40 power split seats fold down to open up 47.4 cubic feet or cargo space, for times when you need versatility from your crossover. But it's the glut of luxury available options that will truly feel like a treat: sunroof, heated front leather seats, and an 11-speaker Bose audio system with one of the simplest and crispest 7-inch media screens you'll see, with an intuitive set of manual controls that will make converts out of anyone who gets flustered by touchscreen technology.
Each and every one of the 2016 Infiniti QX50 crossovers comes equipped with the Japanese manufacturer's potent 3.7L V6 engine. When paired with the 7-speed automatic transmission, you get a nimble vehicle that roars with 325 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque. The standard drive function for this new edition is rear-wheel drive, but the optional all-wheel drive is available for those who might which to navigate through more treacherous road conditions without the worry of losing traction.
