First pictures of the Japanese premium brand's new compact SUV have been released ahead of its public unveiling at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
If Christian Meunier, Infiniti's global division vice president, says the all-new 2019 Infiniti QX50 is the company's "most important vehicle we have ever launched", then you know they made a real effort to capitalize on the hot luxury SUV segment.
Slightly longer and wider than its predecessor, the 2019 Infiniti QX50 has the same wheelbase of 110.2 inches (2,800 mm).
Built on an all-new platform, and featuring a rather distinctive, chiselled design, the new SUV also marks the debut of the world's first "production ready" variable-compression-ratio engine. The auto, Infiniti says, is "designed to set a new level of refinement, rigidity and interior space in the segment".

Egypt mosque attack leaves at least 85 dead, 80 wounded
After at least two explosions, the attackers waited outside the mosque and gunned down worshipers as they tried to flee to safety. Will be calling the President of Egypt in a short while to discuss the tragic terrorist attack, with so much loss of life.
Infiniti claims that the structure has also enabled a 23 percent improvement in torsional rigidity, reducing flex and vibrations, thus improving refinement.
But when racing stops and cruising starts, the engine can alter the ratio step by step - i.e., how far down each cylinder moves in order to let in fuel before it is compressed with air and combusts to power the wheels - from a sprightly 8:1 all the way down to 14:1, in effect becoming a virtual diesel engine in terms of fuel economy and torque delivery. It will also be the first Infiniti to wear the latest evolution of the brand's Powerful Elegance design language. The engine will be mated to a CVT transmission. Compared to the previous QX50 (formerly known as the EX), the drag coefficient is reduced significantly, even though the model looks more purposeful - more muscular if you like. 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 is keen to point out that its QX50 is available with Nissan's new ProPilot assist, where the QX50 will assist with acceleration, braking and steering input during motorway driving, all at the push of a button.
