On the Top Gear Cool Wall: The Infinity Q50
Seriously UnCool, UnCool, Cool or… SUB ZERO?
The Infiniti’s 1991cc turbocharged petrol 4-cylinder engine develops (350Nm) of torque and 211PS of power which is transmitted through a 7-speed automatic transmission to the rear wheels. Flexible and efficient driving is assisted by a wide torque band curve that begins at just 1250rpm.
Manufactured with the latest fuel efficient certified technology and tuned by Infiniti engineers for an engaging throttle response, the 2.0-litre direct injection petrol engine joins the new 2.2-litre direct injection turbo-diesel engine, and the celebrated high-performance V6-configuration hybrid powertrains. Over the next five years, Infiniti will increase its model range by 60 per cent and more than double the number of its powertrains.
First revealed in Europe at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show in March and already launched in China the Q50 petrol, will make its sales debut in Europe in autumn before rolling out to the rest of Infiniti’s global markets by year end.
