Nissan’s Lexus beater will have half a dozen launches this year. It started with the facelifted Q50 performance sedan at the Singapore Motorshow 2018.
But the limelight should probably be reserved for the QX80. The big sport utility vehicle is a heavily revised version of the current model, with modern tweaks to its otherwise chunky styling.
Being still a very big vehicle, it comes with lots of driver assistance, including lane departure warning and prevention, adaptive cruise control, predictive forward collision warning, emergency braking, blind spot warning and intervention, as well as reverse collision prevention. And of course, reverse camera.
The third quarter will also see the arrival of the latest QX30 compact crossover, followed by the mid-sized QX50 in the fourth quarter, both of which are new models. The QX50 will feature Nissan’s revolutionary variable-compression ration engine. This power plant promises the punchiness of a petrol engine and efficiency of a diesel one.
