Infiniti QX30 Concept Photo Gallery (31 Photos)

Infiniti_QX30_Concept_03

The Infiniti QX30 concept is a look into the not-so-distant future as the luxury automaker is committed to bringing a new compact SUV to production. We first caught a glimpse of the QX30 in February, but now get an exhaustive look at the sleek concept that hopefully doesn't lose too much of its curvaceous design on its way to production. Infiniti's current SUV range includes the QX50, QX60, QX70 and QX80.

Designed to mimic the sleek lines of a coupe while offering the ride height of a crossover SUV, Infiniti hopes the all-wheel-drive QX30 "urban explorer" concept will attract a new generation of car buyers. Generations X and Y, according to Infiniti, are more concerned about a premium car's distinctive design and execution rather than size or power. The QX30 does have a powerful design on the outside with 21-inch wheels and satin accents as well as a surprisingly realistic interior with nice touches of leather and blue accent stitching.

Though there are no specifics on power plants at the moment, a production SUV inspired by this concept will hit the road next year. Check out the gallery below; manufacturer images.

Recall Alert: Certain 2013-2014 Nissan and Infiniti Crossovers

2014-nissan-pathfinder

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 170,665 model-year 2013-14 versions of the Nissan Pathfinder crossovers manufactured between June 20, 2012, and Nov. 18, 2013; model-year 2014 Pathfinder Hybrids manufactured between July 18 and Nov. 18, 2013; model-year 2013 Infiniti JX35 crossovers manufactured between Nov. 29, 2011, and June 14, 2013; model-year 2014 Infiniti QX60 crossovers manufactured between May 16 and Nov. 18, 2013; and model-year 2014 QX60 Hybrids manufactured between July 18 and Nov. 18, 2013.

The Problem: In these vehicles, the hood release cable assembly may have been installed incorrectly, so the hood may not latch properly. This could cause the hood to open while the vehicle is being driven, increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Dealers will modify the angle of the hood release mechanism to provide additional length to the release cable for free.

What Owners Should Do: Nissan has not yet provided an owner notification schedule. Owners can call Nissan at 800-647-7261 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at 888-327-4236 for more information.

Recall Alert: 2013 Infiniti QX56, 2014 QX80

2013InfinitiQX56Recall

Vehicles Affected: More than 1,800 model-year 2013 Infiniti QX56 SUVs manufactured between Sept. 1, 2012, and April 26, 2013, and model-year 2014 Infiniti QX80 SUVs manufactured between June 18, 2013, and Feb. 11, 2014

The Problem: The driver's frontal airbag inflator may have been manufactured with an incorrect part. In a crash necessitating the deployment of the driver's airbag, the incorrect part may block the flow of propellant to the airbag and the inflator may rupture, which could cause metal fragments to strike and potentially seriously injure vehicle occupants. This latest action is part of the massive ongoing Takata airbag recall affecting nearly 8 million vehicles from 10 automakers.

The Fix: Infiniti manufacturer Nissan will begin notifying owners in late December, and dealers will replace the front driver airbag inflator for free.

What Owners Should Do: Owners can call Nissan at 800-647-7261, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or to go www.safercar.gov for more info.

2015 Infiniti QX70 Video

The former Infiniti FX got a new name, but the luxury compact SUV needs much more if it hopes to stay competitive. Cars.com reviewer Kelsey Mays says he still likes the 2015 QX70, but can't get past some utility and driving shortcomings that are getting increasingly difficult to ignore. Watch the video.

2015 Infiniti QX70S: Car Seat Check

15QX70_main

Last year, Infiniti's sporty two-row crossover dumped its FX prefix for a QX, and thus the FX37 became the QX70. Now, for the 2015 model year, the QX70 has dropped its low-selling 5.0-liter V-8 engine offering, opting instead just to go with the more popular 3.7-liter V-6.

We last tested the QX70 more than a year ago when it went by the different moniker, though some of our complaints about legroom, Latch anchors and tether anchors feel the same. Still, the luxury crossover's letter grades generally went unchanged, and in the case of the rear-facing convertible seat even improved from a C to an A. Find out how well it made the grade below.

Recall Alert: 226,000 Nissan, Infiniti Sedans and SUVs

2003NissanMaximaRecall

Vehicles Affected: More than 226,000 model-year 2002-03 Nissan Maxima sedans and Pathfinder SUVs, and Infiniti I35 sedans and QX4 SUVs, as well as 2002-04 Nissan Sentra sedans and 2003 Infiniti FX crossovers

The Problem: A defect in the passenger-side front airbag could produce excessive internal pressure causing the inflator to rupture upon deployment; this could result in metal fragments striking and seriously injuring occupants. This expansion of an earlier action involving a massive recall of vehicles from multiple automakers using airbags manufactured by Japan's Takata Corp. addresses both the passenger-side front airbags that were originally installed in the vehicles, as well as replacement airbags that may have been installed as replacement service parts. For example, a replacement airbag may have been installed if a vehicle had been in a crash necessitating the replacement of the passenger-side front airbag.

The Fix: Nissan will begin notifying owners Aug. 11, and dealers will replace airbags on all vehicles in which defective airbags may have been installed either as original equipment or as a replacement; repairs will be made for free.

What Owners Should Do: Owners can call Nissan at 800-647-7261 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to www.safercar.gov, for more info.

2015 Infiniti QX80 Photo Gallery (32 Photos)

Infiniti-qx80_500

It's no secret that we think Infiniti's large SUV is awkward looking — and that's putting it nicely. The QX80 (previously the QX56) gets a mild exterior styling update for 2015, which should help soften it a bit.

In front, a curvier lattice-style grille is new, and other changes include revised LED headlights, turn signals and fog lights and a restyled bumper — and don't forget the bling; there's even more chrome trim this year.

For the 2015 model year, the Infiniti QX80 changes a little on the outside, quite a bit on the inside and not at all under the hood. The luxury SUV also adds the new Limited trim, which offers further subtle exterior flourishes along with interior upgrades that the automaker boasts "wouldn't be out of place in an ultra-executive boardroom or private jet."

Recall Alert: 2014 Infiniti QX80

2014InfinitiQX80

Vehicles Affected: About 468 model-year 2014 Infiniti QX80 SUVs manufactured between Dec. 2, 2013, and Jan. 27, 2014, and equipped with 20-inch wheels.

The Problem: The certification label incorrectly lists the gross axle weight rating as 4,497 pounds when it should be 4,343 pounds. This could result in the vehicle being overloaded, increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Infiniti parent company, Nissan, will notify owners starting this month and mail corrected certification labels to owners for free.

What Owners Should Do: Owners can call Infiniti at 800-662-6200 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to www.safercar.gov, for more info.
