Infiniti officially unveiled its luxury SUV concept at the Detroit Auto Show — and it’s a nice glimpse of what we can expect from the automaker in the future.
The Nissan subsidiary first released teaser images of the concept in December, stating that the car should serve as a glimpse of future of Infiniti QX models.

The new concept showcases Infiniti’s latest self-driving tech. The car is packed with laser scanners, radar, and cameras so it can monitor its surroundings.
The driver assistance package includes forward collision warning, active lane control, and adaptive steering. That means the car can handle stop-and-go traffic situations on a highway.
Infiniti wrote in a December press release that the self-driving tech is meant to “act as a ‘co-pilot’ for the driver, empowering rather than replacing them.”
That’s in-line with Nissan’s general position on self-driving cars — the automaker has said we are still a decade away from fully self-driving cars and is pursuing using call centers to assist its self-driving cars until they are fully up to speed.
