Arab Motor World takes the Infiniti QX50 for a spin

When we’ve heard that the all-new INFINITI QX50 has arrived at RYMCO INFINITI showrooms across Lebanon. we had to take the car for a spin just to get it to know it better but we promise you a more in-depth drive very soon.

The all new QX50 has been created to fully meet the needs of today’s 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. Considered by many industry observers the holy grail of internal combustion engines, the company’s engineers succeeded in bringing a world’s first to the market for INFINITI: variable compression technology. The VC-Turbo engine delivers the strong and convincing performance of a V6 and the fuel economy of a 4-cylinder engine, transforming on demand and based on the input of the drivers. Instantly adapting to their needs, the VC-Turbo lets them harness the exhilarating performance of 268 hp and 380 nm at 4,400 rpm of torque.

The QX50 appeals to buyers who seek a unique combination of interior space, power, efficiency, hand-crafted quality, modern design and effortless on-road performance.

Developed on an entirely new platform, the QX50 features the sophisticated and assuring INFINITI Intelligent All-Wheel Drive. Drive Assist technologies react instantaneously to critical driving situations, supporting drivers with a range of empowering ‘co-pilot’ features and enabling them to be in total control at all times.

The aerodynamically efficient exterior remains true to the QX50 and QX Sport Inspiration concepts, bringing a fresh interpretation of INFINITI’s distinctive ‘Powerful Elegance’ design language to the SUV segment.

Combining a confident SUV stance with intelligent packaging, and deep character lines with INFINITI signature design cues, the appearance of the QX50 highlights the influence of human artistry in the design process and emphasizes the car’s premium quality.

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, while a calm, connected and relaxing cabin features an asymmetric layout – designed to meet different needs of the driver and the passengers.

Our Test drive for the Infiniti QX50 this time was a 24-hour cruise and we were really impressed with what we saw and drive.

The full review and the journey onboard the Infiniti QX50 is yet still to come so wait for it very soon.
