Today Infiniti provided a first look at the next-generation QX60 via a virtual reveal of the elegant QX60 Monograph. Presented digitally to the world from Infiniti’s new headquarters in Yokohama, Japan, the QX60 Monograph represents a more premium SUV design, and its style and proportions provide clear indicators about the next QX60 that arrives in 2021.

Important to the Brand
“The QX60 is a very important vehicle to INFINITI — one of the first truly global products our brand, and we have sold more than 400,000 units worldwide since its introduction. Today, we give you a sneak peek into the direction our designers are taking the future QX60,” said Infiniti Chairman Peyman Kargar.

With three rows and seating for up to seven occupants, the QX60 remains a popular choice for families seeking a premium SUV experience. Infiniti designers intended to keep this functionality while wrapping it in a more aerodynamic, bold package embodied by the QX60 Monograph.

“In crafting this Monograph, we wanted to change the tonality of the QX60 and transform the nameplate from a sculptural and architectural point of view,” said Nissan’s Senior Vice President of Global Design Alfonso Albaisa. “We raised the visual center of gravity, giving it a strong, straight shoulder line that carries through to the hood, with a higher, more prominent grille, and longer-looking cabin to deliver a sense of muscularity and a commanding presence,” exclaimed Albaisa.

Infiniti refers to the Monograph as more than a design study or concept, instead claiming it “provides a tangible insight into how Infiniti plans to transform a future model.”

The Monograph’s signature Infiniti grille features a mesh pattern — inspired by Japanese origami — that appears three-dimensional. Side air intakes at the edges of the bumper echo the same mesh design.

“The platinum paint on the QX60 Monograph projects a sense of warmth. The highly reflective nature mimics the qualities of liquid metal, allowing the surface of the body to capture the shadows and lights of the environment in which it is displayed creating a sense of dynamism,” said Taisuke Nakamura, senior design director of Infiniti Global Design at Nissan.
