The powerful SUV has a 2.0-liter VC-Turbo (Variable Compression Turbo) engine.
Infiniti strengthens its roots in the Middle East with the introduction of the new Infiniti QX50 SUV. The vehicle was unveiled during a prestigious event held at the Dubai Design District on the eve of 4th July.
The premium SUV houses a number of new and advanced features and technologies. Infiniti has designed the SUV keeping ‘Powerful Excellence’ design concept in mind while giving it the powerful and unique VC-Turbo engine, which is the world’s first production-ready variable compression ratio engine.
The Middle East is a hot market for SUVs where the top automotive brands go head to head for the largest market share. The QX50 premium SUV will compete with the Nissan Patrol, the Mercedes-Benz G-Class (recently unveiled) and the Toyota Land Cruiser among others.
Speaking at the event Markus Leithe, Managing Director Middle East at INFINITI Motor Company said: “The Middle East is a key focus region for INFINITI globally and the all-new QX50 is one of the most important vehicles we’ve unveiled here in the past year.”
He further said: “Our discerning customers in this region will appreciate the unique and attractive features of this car, including its striking design, dynamic versatility, and advanced technology. The all-new QX50 boasts advanced safety features and is the first vehicle in the world to be powered by an engine that can vary compression ratio on the fly, thanks to our groundbreaking VC-Turbo engine. We very much look forward to seeing this car on the region’s roads from September.”
The powerful SUV’s 2.0-liter VC-Turbo (Variable Compression Turbo) engine works intelligently with the multi-link system to determine the compression ratio of the pistons. This translates to immense power for demanding drivers and fuel efficiency for the thrifty folks.
The new Infiniti QX50 SUV will be available in the Middle East at the end of the third quarter of 2018 wearing a price tag of $44,000 excluding VAT.
