2018 Infiniti QX50 revealed ahead of LA debut

New Infiniti QX50 to use world's first production variable compression ratio engine

Only a single image has been released but it shows the new SUV heavily inspired by the concept of the same name, which was unveiled earlier this year.

If you are looking for a new family auto or just a roomy vehicle then you should be happy to know that the Infiniti QX50 luxury SUV has been recently unveiled.

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.

Depending on the position of the rear bench, trunk volume varies between 31.6 cu ft (895 liters SAE) and 37 cu ft (1,048 liters SAE), with the maximum capacity growing to 60 cu ft (1,699 liters SAE) with the rear seats folded.

North Korean men say they washed ashore in Japan
Dozens of North Korean fishing vessels wash up on Japan's Sea of Japan coast every year. "I was very surprised at the news". The men, said to be in good condition, spoke what seemed to be Korean, the police said.

The four-cylinder unit, called VC-Turbo, can adjust its compression ratio continuously between 8:1 (boosting performance) and 14:1 (increasing efficiency) depending on driving style. The FWD version with the new VC-Turbo engine offers 35% better fuel efficiency than the outgoing V6 QX50. Full explanation and video illustration of how the new engine works here. While we need to wait for European-spec boot capacity data, Infiniti reckons it'll swallow up three golf bags and still leave space for more stuff. 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.

Infiniti will add a new crossover to its range at the LA Auto Show later this month. Flat out, it can reach a top speed of 230 km/h.

Infiniti's corporate grille will be the center piece of the 2019 QX50's front fascia, hinting that its going to look like a shrunken QX60. It consists of functions that help the driver accelerate, brake and steer the vehicle in single-lane highway driving conditions, providing autonomous-like functionality, activating at the push of a button.
