Infiniti Oman has launched the new Infiniti QX50 in the Sultanate. Featuring the first interpretation of Infiniti’s variable compression turbocharged engine in the region, the new QX50 is built on an entirely new platform and offers Infiniti’s Intelligent all-wheel drive technology.
A spokesperson for INFINITI Oman said, “The new INFINITI QX50 has been designed, engineered, and finished to complement human capability. Everything about QX50 is built to amplify the driver. From open-pore wood accents to tailored leather stitching, the sophisticated surfaces and driver-focused design of the QX50’s well-appointed cabin create a personal environment every drive.”
The bold styling of the new Infiniti QX50 brings with it a lower drag coefficient, with airflow paths given precedence – the slots above the headlights are designed in, to aid airflow through the engine.
The new VC-Turbo engine sets the new QX50 apart, building on the benefits of a low volume four -cylinder engine, yet capable of delivering 6-cylinder power. The 2.0-litre engine is capable of varying its compression ratio from a low of 8:1 to a high of 14:1 for better efficiency. The output, aided by turbocharging is 268hp and 380Nm of torque.
The engine is connected to a next-gen CVT setup, that is tuned to the engine’s broader performance range.
