Infiniti unveils a semi-autonomous QX50 for 2019

The all-new Infiniti QX50 is expected to be one of the pivot factors in driving the brand's sales beyond 200,000 units annually

Launching a new model promising both fuel economy but performance, at a time when increasingly buyers are turning away from diesel cars, could be just what Infiniti needs to unlock significant United Kingdom growth.

Infiniti said during the unveil at the Los Angeles Auto Show that the QX50 is the most important vehicle they have ever launched.

Christian Meunier, Infiniti Global Division vice president, described the QX50 as a luxury crossover with cutting edge technologies, standout design and unrivaled interior space, riding on an entirely new platform.

In the words of Christian Meunier, INFINITI Global Division Vice President "The QX50 is the most important vehicle we have ever launched, and it embodies everything the brand stands for: handsome design, advanced technology and empowering performance".

The 2019 Infiniti QX50 brings Infiniti's latest "Powerful Elegance" design language to the crossover segment. The QX50 combines a confident stance with intelligent packaging, while deep character lines highlight the influence of human artistry in the design process.

Fortunately, there is a simple fix for this until Apple patches this inexplicable bug: Change the root account's password now. And, as most security experts would attest, physical access will eventually trump any logical security you may have in place.

While pricing and full United Kingdom specification have still to be announced, Infiniti says the new QX50 will be available with either front-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive powertrains mated to a CVT gearbox. Inside there's more space than before with higher quality materials with an asymmetric layout. Its asymmetric layout and calm and connected ambience that is created to meet different needs of the driver and passengers. Built using high-tensile-strength steel and an industry-first variable compression ratio engine, the QX50 is said to be 23% lighter than the current model, and the engine delivers 35% better fuel economy than the V-6 engine it replaces. It combines the power of a 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine with the torque and efficiency of a four-cylinder diesel engine.

Autonomous drive support technologies will also feature heavily on the model, though Infiniti insists that while its ProPilot Assist systems will help with acceleration, braking and steering during single-lane carriageway driving, the driver will still retain ultimate control over the auto.
