New Infiniti QX50 SUV revealed

New Infiniti QX50 – official image and details revealed

Design-wise, the 2019 QX50 features the brand's Powerful Elegance styling language and reminds of the QX50 Concept and QX Sport Inspiration studies that previewed it.

The image above shows what the QX50 - a rival for the Audi Q5, BMW X3 and Mercedes GLC - will look like. The crossover sports a host of "firsts" including a new front-drive platform, Infinit's first application of semi-self driving technology, and a variable-compression engine to maximize fuel economy.

Infiniti has revealed the new QX50 ahead of its world debut at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show next week. The 2.0-liter turbocharged unit comes with adjustable compression ratio to optimize either power or efficiency when needed, while also sporting a similar torque level to a four-cylinder diesel engine.

Under the hood the 2019 QX50 will be powered by a new 2.0L four-cylinder engine with variable compression technology that generates 268 horsepower and 280 lb-ft. of torque.

Underneath the more upright sheet metal of the QX50 is a new front-wheel-drive platform for Infiniti, a fundamental shift from the outgoing model that was based on a rear-wheel drive platform.

"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". A CVT that's also found in the larger QX60 will be the only transmission offered.

Another new technology that debuts with the QX50 is the latest ProPILOT Assist system.

Flat out, the QX50 is claimed to be capable of accelerating from 0-100kph in 6.3sec and reaching a top speed of 143mph/229kph.

Infiniti says its drivers want to be involved with their vehicle, so the technology will be more "co-pilot" than "autopilot"; it helps the driver control acceleration, braking and steering during single-lane highway driving at the push of a button however Infiniti stressed it "is a step removed from the notion of fully-autonomous "driverless" motoring embraced by some auto makers".
