For fans of the brand, it will be very interesting that the release date to the international market has already been established, this is spring of the upcoming year. First of all, a new SUV can be found on the roads of the United States and Canada, where, as the way, it is impossible to be glorified Japanese reliability and goodness.

There are also no air ducts that attached a prototype dynamic sporty character.

Price and date of the model
It is expected that the new QX80 will appear in Europe's car dealerships closer to mid-2018.

- 64 750 USD - 2WD basic configuration auto;
