BOSTON – The New England Motor Press Association (NEMPA) selected the 2012 INFINITI QX56 for the second time during its annual Winter Vehicle Awards with the best in class premium SUV.
NEMPA members gather every February to evaluate a wide range of vehicles for performance qualities in the harsh winter weather conditions of Boston and the greater Northeast area. The award will be presented May 11 during an awards dinner at Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
“The INFINITI QX56 will not be ignored,” said one NEMPA judge. “This strikingly styled, full-size body-on-frame SUV carries INFINITI design themes proudly and exudes its premium status from every angle. A brawny 5.6-liter V8 employs direct injection for both power and efficiency. Innovative Hydraulic Body Motion Control keeps the QX56 flat during cornering, reducing drama and delivering a surprisingly easy yet sporty driving experience. The cabin is finished to a stunning degree of luxury, and the QX56 offers some of INFINITI’s highest levels of driver information and passenger entertainment.”
