Infiniti Reveals QX50 SUV prior to LA

LA Auto Show 2017: Infiniti QX50's revolutionary new VC Turbo engine

But Infiniti is coming to the 2019 model year with luxury appointments on a new platform with a revolutionary power plant under the hood. The VC Turbo is also 20 kilograms lighter than the engine it replaces, Kiga said, but costs no more to manufacture.

Infiniti will launch the 2019 QX50 into Canadian dealerships in spring 2018. Meunier added Infiniti sales are up 9% this year and global sales are expected to reach 200,000 units in 2017. Wide beam LED headlights similar to those used on the new Infiniti Q60 sports coupe are also fitted.

The 2019 Infiniti QX50 brings Infiniti's latest "Powerful Elegance" design language to the crossover segment.

While pricing and full United Kingdom specification have still to be announced, Infiniti says the new QX50 will be available with either front-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive powertrains mated to a CVT gearbox.


Measuring at 4,693mm long and with a roomy maximum luggage space of 1,699 litres with rear seats dropped, the premium, mid-sized SUV is underpinned by a new platform which has been developed with interior packaging and practicality in mind.

The artistic application of high quality materials, and advanced craftsmanship make the cabin as welcoming and comfortable as it is flexible. Driver-centric, yet passenger-minded, the 2019 QX50 offers a package of technologies to enhance the driving experience. Its asymmetric layout and calm and connected ambience that is created to meet different needs of the driver and passengers.

The vehicle also incorporates Infiniti's pioneering ProPilot autonomous drive support technologies to assist the driver when accelerating, braking and steering during single-lane carriageway driving, whilst still allowing them to retain ultimate control over the auto.

The new 2.0 litre four cylinder unit is capable of changing its compression ratio on the fly by adjusting the pistons' stroke, producing efficiency or power. A compelling alternative to diesel, it challenges the notion that only hybrid and diesel powertrains can deliver high torque and efficiency.
