In most circumstances, it's fair to equate enormous objects with clunky handling. The 2012 Infiniti QX56, however, is not one of those circumstances. At 17.3-feet long, 6.6-feet wide and 6.3-feet high, there is no arguing the full SUV's massive size. Yet consumers might be shocked to discover that the behemoth model actually accelerates extremely smoothly and provides impressively quiet driving.
Wondering how such a large vehicle can handle as quietly as its smaller new Infiniti siblings? Infiniti of Tucson has done a bit of investigation and it all seems to come down to miracle materials. Created with sound-deadening techniques, the QX56 interior protects its passengers from hearing the mammoth wheels spinning on asphalt or the model's 5,800-plus pounds tearing across gravel. For as much as the Infiniti walls keep outside noise out, they do any equally superb job of keeping inside noise in. This means that drivers and passengers can take full advantage of the model's 15-speaker sound system or talk in a subtle whisper and hear every word.
While many luxury offerings, snootily boast significant bling or other signs of wealth, the Infiniti QX56 goes for a slightly different, more personable look. In fact, one San Francisco Chronicle writer notes, "The QX is quirky, with an expression that begs to be anthropomorphized by Pixar for the next 'Cars' flick."1 Whether you're looking for a solid vehicle that can tote large amounts of precious cargo or simply looking for a luxury model that sings to a different tune, feel free to check out the QX56 and other Infiniti models at Infiniti of Tucson, 625 W.
