Infiniti QX50 interior modelled after luxury hotels

By CARSIFU | 31 July 2018

TOKYO: Infiniti has officially unveiled the interior of its upcoming QX50 mid-sized crossover that's going to hit the markets with an interior inspired from the look and feel of luxury resort hotels.

The design team wanted a forward-thinking interior and to provide drivers with a luxury experience every time they entered the vehicle.

For the unique colour combination, the team drew inspiration from the experience of walking into a luxury resort beachfront hotel.

Starting with warmer colour tones, the rich chocolate brown replicates wood applications in the resort and the surrounding trees, followed by a creamy off-white to represent the sand on a beach.

The highlights of a cooler dark navy blue on the centre console is reminiscent of the ocean water to help strike the proper balance between warm and cool, to create a comfortable yet invigorating environment.

Highlighting a more multi-faceted colour story, the three main colours of the QX50 Autograph interior are very similar to the tones at the forefront of this year's Pantone Fashion Color Trend Report 2018.

A creamy Pantone colour, called Coconut Milk, represents the classic mainstay of a white and/or off-white, while a rich chocolate colour titled Emperador adds strength and substance and Pantone's classic navy-like Sailor Blue anchors the palette – just as the dark blue Ultrasuede application does on the QX50 interior.

The all-new QX50 cabin's seats, door panels and dashboard has been hand-wrapped in supple leathers with laser hole-cut stitch pattern in contrast colour stitching.

The interior is further accented by genuine matte-finish open-pore maple wood that's been treated to retain its natural characteristics in texture and appearance - allowing for the wood's grain to be detected by touch.

"The unrivalled interior space, carefully curated application of colours, high quality materials and advanced craftsmanship make the cabin as welcoming and comfortable as it is luxurious," said Infiniti  Motor Company executive design director Karim Habib.
