Infiniti QX50 revealed with a world's-first engine

INFINITI has flaunted its latest in the luxury mid-size crossover segment - the all-new 2019 Infiniti QX50 - claiming that it is the right vehicle to be had at the time when the segment is booming.

There has been a lot of speculation since Infiniti first gave us a glimpse of its all-new QX50 prototype at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this year.

Externally the new design lines are visually appealing especially with the new bold front end that includes a clamshell hood but still manages to reflect Infiniti's distinctive Powerful Elegance design language.

In the words of Christian Meunier, INFINITI Global Division Vice President "The QX50 is the most important vehicle we have ever launched, and it embodies everything the brand stands for: lovely design, advanced technology and empowering performance". It combines a confident stance with deep character lines.

The new engine will be matched to Infiniti's Xtronic "shift by wire" continuously variable transmission and will now have the power transmitted to the road via a front-wheel-drive based configuration with an available intelligent all-wheel drive system.

The engineering design of the vehicle offers new standards of refinement and interior space in the compact crossover segment.

This downsizing is achieved via VC-Turbo, tech which ensures the engine compression ration seamlessly switches between 8:1 for high performance and 14:1 for high efficiency. A breakthrough in combustion engine design, the 2.0-liter VC-Turbo engine adjusts its compression ratio to optimize power and efficiency.

The petrol unit delivers the power of a six-cylinder engine with the fuel economy of a four-cylinder to compete in the diesel dominated SUV sector.
