2018 Infiniti QX50 revealed ahead

2018 Infiniti QX50 revealed ahead

Set to rival the likes of the Audi Q5, BMW X3 and Mercedes-Benz GLC, the second-generation Infiniti QX50 will feature the world’s first variable-compression petrol engine, said to offer diesel-rivalling fuel economy while offering class-leading performance.

Likely to be the flagship powerplant, the 2.0-litre variable-compression turbo four has outputs rated at 200kW and 390Nm, making it comparable to the outgoing car’s 242kW/361Nm 3.7-litre aspirated V6.

At 4.69m long, 1.9m wide and 1.68m tall it’s similar in size to a BMW X3, and Infiniti claims the elevated driving position maximises visibility. We’ve yet to see the interior, but Nissan’s luxury division says it features an “artistic application of high quality materials and advanced craftsmanship”.

Infiniti’s presence in the UK has slowly grown, partly thanks to its lack of diesel offerings, but remains small. The QX50’s new bold claims for efficiency and the UK’s changing attitude to diesel in view of the Government’s upcoming tax hikes could put the Japanese brand in a better place.
