The 2019 Infiniti QX50 offers economy and power via this new tech

But perhaps most importantly, it offers the first production-ready example of a variable-compression engine, which Infiniti says "combines the power of a 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine with the torque and efficiency of a four-cylinder diesel engine".

A single-scroll turbocharger helps maximize performance and efficiency, enabling immediate throttle responses at any speed or compression ratio giving performance equivalency of a naturally aspirated six-cylinder unit.

Externally the new design lines are visually appealing especially with the new bold front end that includes a clamshell hood but still manages to reflect Infiniti's distinctive Powerful Elegance design language.

"This uncommonly smooth engine offers customers power and performance, as well as efficiency and economy".

Launching a new model promising both fuel economy but performance, at a time when increasingly buyers are turning away from diesel cars, could be just what Infiniti needs to unlock significant United Kingdom growth.

The VC Turbo is also 20 kilograms lighter than the engine it replaces, Kiga said, but costs no more to manufacture.

It boasts a version of Nissan's ProPILOT Assist technologies, which allow it to basically go semi-autonomous during highway driving. Propilot takes control of the accelerator, brakes and steering to keep the auto in a single lane moving with the flow of traffic.

These are also supported by: Distance Control Assist; Back-up Collision Intervention; Predictive Forward Collision Warning; Blind Spot Warning and Intervention; Lane Departure Warning and Prevention; and Forward Emergency Braking with pedestrian detection. Should traffic slow, the system will automatically reduce the QX50's speed to keep you from crowding cars in front of you.

Christian Meunier, Infiniti global division vice president, said:"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".

THE latest SUV from Japanese premium marque Infiniti will feature a world first in engine technology when it arrives next year.
