We are talking about the new Infiniti QX50. Under the hood, we will meet, for the first time, the world’s first production engine with variable compression ratio.
What does this mean? Well, the 2.0-liter turbocharger is able to adjust the compression ratio for optimal power and efficiency optimization, delivering a torque similar to all four cylinders.
The car will have 268 horsepower and a torque of 380 Nm, making the VC-Turbo engine the best propeller in its class. As far as figures go, we have to mention that the new QX50 accelerates, with the integrated traction coupled, to 100 km/h in 6.3 seconds and the maximum speed announced is 230 km/h.
To be clear, the Infiniti SUV is 1.7 meters in height and 4.7 meters in length. In addition, the luggage space rose to a capacity of 895 liters, going up to over 1,040 liters when the rear seats are folded.
Equipped with new driving assistance system, Nissan ProPilot, the same that will be available on the 2018 Rogue model, the QX50 will help in accelerating, braking and turning at the touch of a button.
Expect the Infiniti QX50 to go on sale at the start of 2018.
