NASHVILLE, Tenn., July 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The interior of the all-new 2019 INFINITI QX50 boasts a unique inspiration. The INFINITI design team created the on-trend, multi-tone color combination for the available Autograph interior inspired by the look and feel of luxury resort hotels.

Highlighting a more multi-faceted color story, the three main colors of the QX50 Autograph interior are very similar to color tones at the forefront of this year's PANTONE® Fashion Color Trend Report 2018. A creamy Pantone color, called Coconut Milk, represents the classic mainstay of a white and/or off-white, while a rich chocolate color titled Emperador adds strength and substance and Pantone's classic navy-like Sailor Blue anchors the palette – just as the dark blue Ultrasuede® application does on the QX50 interior.

The designers wanted a forward-thinking interior and to provide drivers with a luxury experience every time they entered their QX50 mid-size crossover. For the unique color combination, the design team drew inspiration from the experience one would have walking into a luxury resort beachfront hotel. Starting with warmer color tones, the rich chocolate brown replicates wood applications in the resort and the surrounding trees, followed by a creamy off-white representing the sand on a beach. The highlights of a cooler dark navy blue on the center console, reminiscent of the ocean water, strike the proper balance between warm and cool, creating a comfortable, yet invigorating environment.

The QX50 interior is in line with modern design trends. In response to consumers' continued embrace of color, designers are recognizing the need to show more color in their collections, according to the Pantone Color Institute. Highlighting a more multi-faceted color story, the three main colors of the QX50 Autograph interior are very similar to color tones at the forefront of this year's PANTONE® Fashion Color Trend Report 2018. A creamy Pantone color, called Coconut Milk, represents the classic mainstay of a white and/or off-white, while a rich chocolate color titled Emperador adds strength and substance and Pantone's classic navy-like Sailor Blue anchors the palette – just as the dark blue Ultrasuede® application does on the QX50 interior.

"The quest to find the perfect fit of materials, colors, forms and ergonomics have driven our designers and engineers to create the best interior INFINITI has ever produced," said Karim Habib, Executive Design Director, INFINITI Motor Company, Ltd. "The unrivaled interior space, carefully curated application of colors, high quality materials and advanced craftsmanship make the cabin as welcoming and comfortable as it is luxurious. The QX50's asymmetrical layout and calm, controlled atmosphere is designed to meet different needs of the driver and passengers."

The all-new QX50 interior is finished in supple leathers, tailored stitching and genuine open-pore wood.

Where many luxury vehicle interiors use high-gloss wood surfaces to create the perception of quality, the all-new 2019 QX50 is finished in genuine, matte finish open-pore maple wood. It is treated to retain its natural characteristics in texture and appearance. Running a hand over it, the grain of the wood is still detectable to the touch, demonstrating a high level of craftsmanship to create an authentic, modern and highly tactile dashboard.

Using bespoke manufacturing methods, wrap-and-sew detailing is a highlight of the handcrafted ambience. The leather on the dash is selected for its quality and is hand-wrapped over the edges of the panels. The seats, door panels and dashboard feature a laser hole-cut stitch pattern, tailored to follow the curves of the interior surfaces. Contrast color stitching is used on the seats for a luxury look and feel.

The available moonroof stretches across the cabin, providing a dramatic, panoramic view of the sky for passengers. This visually enhances interior space, flooding the cabin with natural light.

Overall, the all-new QX50 embodies everything INFINITI stands for: Beautiful design, advanced technology and empowering performance. The QX50 boasts stand-out design, world-first technologies and unrivalled interior space. Distinctive proportions represent the brand's signature Powerful Elegance design. The VC-Turbo, the world's first production variable compression ratio engine, is two engines in one – it seamlessly transforms itself from a high compression engine for efficiency to a low compression one for performance. The QX50's cabin boasts segment-leading space, with a sliding rear bench enhancing cabin and cargo flexibility and creating best-in-class rear legroom. With all seats in place, it accommodates three golf bags, or a stroller stored lengthways, with space for additional cargo. Available ProPILOT Assist technologies offer support when needed and add to the enjoyment and confidence of the driver.
