Infiniti reveals its QX50 Concept

Despite the Concept suffix, Infiniti's QX50 seems almost showroom-ready. However, it's officially just a “vision for a next-generation mid-size premium SUV.”

The QX50 Concept has been styled according to the brand's latest 'Powerful Elegance' design language. Also contributing to a distinctive look are marked 'cabin-forward' proportions, which see the A-pillar bases almost sitting over the front wheel arches.

A future production version is almost certain to feature the innovative VC-Turbo engine. This 2.0 litre, turbocharged, gasoline unit uniquely boasts variable compression ratio technology that can deliver either higher performance or greater efficiency as required.

Output is rated at 268 bhp (200 kW / 272 PS), with 390 Nm (288 lb/ft) of peak torque available. Estimated efficiency figures haven't been released, but Infiniti claims they should rival those of a diesel powertrain.

The Infiniti QX50 Concept is due to debut at next month's 2017 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
