Safety Shield

All Things Considered

The Infiniti Safety Shield® concept is our comprehensive approach to safety. The Infiniti QX80 offers layered technologies to help provide safety and convenience by monitoring conditions, helping you avoid a collision, and helping protect you and your passengers if one occurs.

Risk has not yet appeared
Risk Has Not Yet Appeared

Risk has not yet appeared Helps maintain comfortable driving.

Intelligent Cruise Control
(Full-Speed Range)[*]

Available technology automatically adjusts speed to adapt to the traffic flow.

Distance Control Assist[*]

Available, industry-first system intuitively helps the driver release the throttle and apply brakes during traffic conditions that require frequent braking.

Risk has appeared
Risk Has Appeared

Risk has appeared Helps the driver recover to safer normal driving conditions.

Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Lane Departure Prevention (LDP)[*]

Another industry first, available LDW sounds an audible warning if you start to drift out of your lane and LDP lightly applies the appropriate brakes to help you ease back between the lines.

Blind Spot Warning[*]

An optional technology that helps alert the driver to the presence of a vehicle detected in the blind-spot area. If the driver engages the turn signal while a vehicle is detected, an indicator flashes and an audible warning sounds.

Brake Assist with Preview [*]

The Preview function anticipates the need to apply emergency braking and pre-pressurizes the brake system to help improve brake response.

Collision unavoidable
Collision Unavoidable

Collision unavoidableHelps minimize injuries when a collision is unavoidable.

Intelligent Brake Assist[*]

The system warns the driver when there is a risk of collision ahead and automatically engages the brakes to reduce speed and mitigate damage if a collision becomes unavoidable.

Restraints and Body Structure[*]

Infiniti Advanced Air Bag System (AABS); front seat-mounted side impact supplemental air bags and roof-mounted curtain side impact supplemental air bags for all three rows; Front seat Active Head Restraint; front seat belts with pretensioners, load limiters and seat belt reminders. Zone Body Construction with front and rear crumple zones.

Blind Spot Warning System

Safety Beyond
What You See

Infiniti’s intuitive Blind Spot Warning System[*] helps alert the driver to vehicles detected in the blind spot area. An indicator light illuminates if the presence of another vehicle is detected in the blind spot area. If the driver engages the turn signal, the indicator flashes and an audible warning sounds.

Enhanced Control

Respond to the Unexpected

Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC)[*] helps correct oversteer or understeer by applying brake pressure to individual wheels and adjusting the engine's power output. The Traction Control System (TCS) helps enhance rear-wheel grip when accelerating by sensing wheelspin and automatically reducing engine output and/or braking the spinning wheel.

Intelligent Brake Assist with Forward Collision Warning

Laser-guided Safety

Using the system's laser range finder, Forward Collision Warning (FCW)[*] helps alert the driver of a potential collision by providing a visual and audible warning. If the driver doesn't respond, and a collision cannot be avoided, Intelligent Brake Assist (IBA)[*] automatically engages the brakes to help reduce collision speed and impact, helping to mitigate the consequences of the accident.

Lane Departure Prevention

Lane Departure Prevention (LDP)[*] helps keep your vehicle from unintentionally drifting from your lane. The available system utilizes a camera to monitor the distance between the vehicle and lane markings. If the vehicle drifts unintentionally towards the lane markers, the system first sounds an audible warning, then lightly applies selected brakes to help you ease your vehicle back into its lane.
