LATEST MASTERPIECE OF TECHNOLOGY.

The all-new INFINITI QX50 luxury SUV, unique combination of interior space, power, in combustion engine design, the 2.0-liter VC- efficiency, hand-crafted quality and modern design, along with effortless on-road performance.

A spokesperson for INFINITI Oman said: The INFINITI QX50 is the most important vehicle we have ever launched, and it embodies everything the brand stands for: Beautiful design, advanced technology and empowering performance. As a premium, mid-size SUV, its the right vehicle at the right time in one of the worlds fastest growing segments.

Variable compression ratio engine

The VC-Turbo engine is the worlds first production-ready variable compression ratio engine, transforming on demand. A breakthrough powered by the worlds first variable compression engine, is the most compelling INFINITI to date. A premium mid-size crossover with world-first technologies, QX50s asymmetrical layout and calm, controlled atmosphere is designed to meet different needs of the driver and passengers.

The all new QX50 has been created to fully meet the needs of todays premium car buyers and to deliver on their desire to own the latest masterpiece of technology. The QX50 introduces what is possibly the most innovative internal combustion engine on the market at this time.

The QX50 appeals to buyers who require the Turbo engine adjusts its compression ratio to optimize power and efficiency.

A multi-link system continuously raises or lowers the pistons reach to transform the compression ratio. High compression ratios aid efficiency, while low ratios enable greater power and torque. The VC-Turbo offers any compression ratio between 8:1 (for performance) and 14:1 (for efficiency), maximizing driver control.

The engine delivers 268 hp (200 kW) and (380 Nm) and fuel economy of 14.1 km/l combined, front-wheel drive; 13.6 km/l combined, all-wheel drive). Front-wheel drive models offer a 35 per cent improvement in fuel efficiency over the previous V6 gasoline QX50; all-wheel drive models offer a 30 per cent improvement.

The engine is paired with a continuously-variable transmission (CVT), for seamless power delivery. Its infinite number of gears perfectly matches the engines ability to transform.

Predictive and predictable ride and handling The QX50 is built on an all-new platform, featuring a front-engine, front-wheel drive-based layout. Engineered with flexibility of application in mind, the new platform sets new standards for refinement, rigidity and interior space in the compact premium SUV segment.

The platforms layout allows for higher levels of packaging efficiency than before, resulting in the QX50s ideal interior proportions for passengers and cargo.

The QX50 represents the first automotive use of SHF (Super High Formability) 980 MPa high-tensile steel, further strengthening the all-new platform. The high-tensile material can be molded into unprecedented shapes, saving weight and representing a torsional rigidity improvement of 23 per cent over the current QX50. This rigidity allows the car to resist flex and vibrations, as well as reduce the level of noise transmitted to the cabin.

Powerful exterior design, hand-crafted interior Remaining true to the design of the QX50 Concept and QX Sport Inspiration, the QX50s aerodynamic exterior reinterprets INFINITIs distinctive Powerful Elegance design language and signature design cues for the SUV segment. It combines a confident stance with intelligent packaging, while deep character lines highlight the influence of human artistry in the design process.

At 1,678 mm in height, the QX50 stands out on the road. Its elevated driver position maximizes visibility, for a clear view whether driving or parking. Aerodynamic efficiency is key to the QX50s design the drag coefficient is reduced by 6 per cent compared to the previous QX50. Its hood, bumpers, A-pillar, tailgate and enclosed underbody are all specially designed to encourage airflow over, around and under the vehicle, with minimal turbulence.

The unrivalled interior space, artistic application of high-quality materials, and advanced craftsmanship make the cabin as welcoming and comfortable as it is flexible. Driver-centric, yet passenger-minded, the QX50 offers a package of technologies to enhance the driving experience. Its asymmetric layout and calm, connected ambience is designed to meet different needs of the driver and passengers.

The cabin boasts ample space, with a sliding rear bench enhancing cabin and cargo flexibility and rear legroom. The trunks volume expands from 881 liters SAE), to 1,773 liters SAE) with the rear seats folded. With all seats in place, it accommodates three golf bags, or a stroller stored lengthways, with space for additional cargo. Under-floor storage areas allow owners to stow other items out of sight.
