Infiniti to launch two new models at Dubai show

DUBAI, November 2, 2017

Luxury automaker Infiniti has taken the covers off two new vehicles -  Q50 and the QX30 - that will premiere at the upcoming Dubai International Motor Show.

The event will take place from November 14 to 18, at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

With the Infiniti Q50 and the brand-new Infiniti QX30, the premium brand continues its product expansion story in the region with the introduction of the latest version of the executive sedan and the new premium active crossover, said a statement from the company.

The Q50, an enhanced sports sedan, retains its sleek proportions and athletic stance, while establishing greater visual differentiation between model versions, including the performance-inspired ‘Red Sport 400’.

Through the Red Sport 400 grade, Infiniti’s designers have brought the model in line with its ‘designed to perform’ ethos, it said.

The latest Q50 is the company’s first vehicle to use Infiniti’s Driver Assist Technologies upon which all future Infiniti autonomous drive support technologies will be based.

The vehicle delivers the award-winning 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbo engine from the new and exclusive ‘VR’ powertrain family in two states of tune; a range topping 400HP or 300HP. These engines were recently named on the prestigious 2017 Ward’s ‘10 Best Engines’ list.

As an entry to the segment Infiniti’s 2.0 Litre Turbo Direct Injection engine is also available, delivering 208HP at 5,500 rpm.

The Infiniti QX30 was created for a new generation of premium buyers which appreciates category-defying design inside and out. It boasts a purposeful appearance that makes a bold visual statement – and joins the Q30 as part of Infiniti’s premium compact model line-up, said a statement.

The model will hold a unique position in the segment, bridging the gap between premium compact rivals and larger crossover models.

Its crossover-style versatility extends from unique design appeal and a wide range of comfort, convenience, safety and dynamic features, including intelligent all-wheel drive. Its elevated ride height over the Q30 and high-stability drivetrain will give confidence to drivers, it added.

The QX30 comes equipped with an intelligent all-wheel drive system. The drivetrain is able to send up to 50 per cent of the engine’s power and torque to the rear axle to maintain traction on slippery surfaces and in inclement weather, enhancing a feeling of control and confidence when driving.

The vehicle will be available with the 2.0L Turbo variants in an AWD configuration. The 2.0L Turbo engine delivers 208hp and 350Nm torque.

Juergen Schmitz, managing director, Infiniti Middle East, said: “We seek to empower our customers on their journey and experience with us through our product offering as well as our forward looking technologies.”

“The introductions of the Q50 as well as the new QX30 are two vehicles that will continue deliver on this promise to our customers,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
