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.
Blind Spot Warning System
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.

Infiniti Engineers have developed advanced systems that work in unison to help protect driver and passengers in the event of a collision. Explore to learn more about the safety features of the QX80[*].
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
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.
