Infiniti Says QX50 Concept Is Almost Ready for Production in Detroit

The QX50 Concept articulates Infiniti's "Powerful Elegance" design language, with an original yet practical new crossover form.

The QX50 Concept boasts a driver assistance package that features near-autonomous technology the brand has been developing for years.

The QX50 Concept is being presented with Infiniti's latest autonomous driving technology, which is meant to act as a co-pilot for the driver.

The natural, flowing shapes of the cabin are in line with those of the QX50 Concept's exterior.

Infiniti Says QX50 Concept Is Almost Ready for Production in Detroit

Perhaps as a 2018 model, though bear in mind, Infiniti hasn't absolutely confirmed the new QX will get the VC engine.

Infiniti has a history of closely following the design of concept cars through to production, as seen with the Q30, QX30 and Q60. The SUV looks very close to production ready from here.

Although this final, less radical image of the QX50 show auto is rather less dramatic than the teaser sketches, numerous same design features are apparent, including the aggressive intakes either side of the front grille and the strong line that runs from the front headlamp to the rear side doors.

The 2.0-litre VC-Turbo engine is able to adapt its compression ratio according to driving conditions to deliver optimal levels of performance and efficiency. The updated concept also has a shorter hood that's ideal for a more compact engine, specifically Infiniti's new VC-Turbo unit.

Nissan's premium auto brand Infiniti is beginning to increase in popularity in Europe, but its biggest market by far is still in the United States - and the company has chosen the 2017 Detroit Motor Show to display its new QX50 Concept vehicle.

The ability to change the compression ratio of the combustion process on the run allows the engine to automatically alter its output and fuel consumption, varying its power output and fuel use relative to driver demands.

The company has also revealed upcoming plans for a set of new semi-autonomous driving technologies, named ProPILOT, to compete with the likes of Volvo's Pilot Assist and Tesla's autopilot.

The Infiniti QX50 Concept is a reimagined version of the 2016 QX Sport Inspiration, adapted to showcase a future production model.

From a technology standpoint, the Infiniti QX50 Concept is said to open the door to the future integration of Infiniti's autonomous drive systems (in keeping with the brand's focus on driver engagement, though, the driver will always retain ultimate control over their vehicle).
