Infiniti QX50 Gets Fancy Variable Compression Engine

Design-wise, the 2019 QX50 features the brand's Powerful Elegance styling language and reminds of the QX50 Concept and QX Sport Inspiration studies that previewed it.

The 2019 QX50's profile is also nearly identical to the concept.

In terms of interior packaging for leg-, shoulder- and luggage-space the auto is on a par with or betters the BMW X3 and the Audi Q5.

According to Infiniti senior vice president of global design Alfonso Albaisa, the 2019 QX50 will not sacrifice interior space in the name of style.

This will be the second version of the premium mid-size crossover, which includes a world-first engine configuration that changes the compression ratio depending on which mode you want to be in.

The large SUV, which is also built on an all-new platform, has a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine called VC-Turbo that can adjust its compression ratio from 8:1 (for performance) to 14:1 (for fuel economy). A multi-link system continuously raises or lowers the pistons' reach to transform the compression ratio.

Justin Trudeau calls on men to help end violence against women
Gord Friesen of the Winnipeg police said gender-based violence accounts for the largest volume of calls to the police service. Yet despite its pervasiveness, violence against women is not inevitable - and it is preventable.

The QX50 is also the first auto to get Super High Formability 980 MPa high-tensile steel.

The new QX50 will come with Nissan's ProPILOT driver assistance technology, as seen on the latest Nissan Leaf.

As well as engine tech, the new vehicle gets safety tech including parent company Nissan's ProPilot system, which can autonomously control acceleration and braking in single lane highway situations as well as adjusting steering to ensure lane discipline.

The new QX50 sits on an all-new platform, which Infiniti says has a layout allowing for abundant passenger and cargo space. The vehicle is said to feature an all-wheel drive mode which gets from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 6.3 seconds and a front wheel mode that needs 6.7 seconds to get from 0 to 60.

The new Infiniti QX50 SUV is due to get its public debut at the Los Angeles Motor Show next week, but ahead of that we get our first look at Infiniti's new crossover - and its very clever new engine.
