The Infiniti QX50 will start at $35,445 for the rear-wheel-drive model and $36,845 for the all-wheel-drive SUV when it goes on sale later this month at dealers, Infiniti has announced.

For 2016, Infiniti is offering options including the Premium Package that's priced at $500 and includes a Bose 11-speaker Premium Audio system, advanced climate control system, maple interior accents, and aluminum roof rails.

The compact luxury SUV arrives 3.2 inches longer than the outgoing model with a wheelbase that now measures 113.4 inches.
