2021 Infiniti QX80 Road Test - Consumer Reports
The QX80 is a large, plush, quiet, and well-equipped SUV that is cumbersome to maneuver and ponderous to park. The 400-hp V8 churns out admirable thrust, channeled through a seamless, seven-speed, automatic transmission. Climbing aboard takes dexterity and it's hard to access the small third-row seats with dignity intact. A more serious detriment is emergency handling.

Infiniti QX80 Road Test

The QX80 is a large, plush, quiet, and well-equipped SUV that is cumbersome to maneuver and ponderous to park. The 400-hp V8 churns out admirable thrust, channeled through a seamless, seven-speed, automatic transmission. Climbing aboard takes dexterity and it's hard to access the small third-row seats with dignity intact. A more serious detriment is emergency handling. When pushed to its limits, the QX80 leans a good deal and the tail can start sliding out disconcertingly. Though it didn't do anything dangerous, it bred very little confidence.

Forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, lane keeping assistance, blind spot warning, rear cross traffic warning, and a rear seat reminder are standard.

Best Version to Get
Even the entry-level Luxe model is very well equipped. Going for the top-shelf Sensory grade adds fancier interior trim and 22-inch wheels.
