Infiniti unveils new QX50 SUV ahead of LA Auto Show

2019 Infiniti QX50 Debuts With A Sculpted Design VC-Turbo Engine

The 2019 Infiniti QX50 broke cover while most of us napped in a turkey-induced slumber.

The 2019 QX50's profile is also nearly identical to the concept. The auto, Infiniti says, is "designed to set a new level of refinement, rigidity and interior space in the segment". 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.

It's a 2.0 litre petrol turbo dubbed VC-Turbo which can alter its compression ratio as it works in a range from 8:1 to 14:1, promising both performance and economy.

Infiniti is expecting the 2019 QX50 to be rated at 27 mpg across the board on front-wheel-drive variants, while the all-wheel-drive model will get a 26/26 mpg rating. The relatively nascent luxury brand may be looking for a new flagship with more technology, a defining sedan or crossover to shape the automaker's mold going forward, or a new powertrain to cement its status as a forward-thinking, fuel efficient marque.

Hong Kong - Infiniti has released the first picture of its all-new QX50 ahead of its world debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show next week.

Apple iPhone SE 2 coming by July, report claims
Some of Apple's fans are still sticking to the age-old thought of a 4-inch phone is as big as you will ever need it to be. The fact that the original iPhone SE found many takers is prove enough that people still like small screen smartphones.

The new engine is paired with a CVT transmission.

"The QX50 is the most important vehicle we have ever launched, and it embodies everything the brand stands for: handsome design, advanced technology and empowering performance", said Christian Meunier, Infiniti Global Division Vice President.

The QX50 also features a raft of new driver assistance technology, utilising the ProPilot Assist system developed by parent company Nissan. Infiniti says the combination will send the QX50 from zero to 60 miles per hour in just 6.3 seconds in all-wheel-drive format.

As well as engine tech, the new vehicle gets safety tech including parent company Nissan's ProPilot system, which can autonomously control acceleration and braking in single lane highway situations as well as adjusting steering to ensure lane discipline.
