Long road ahead

Wheels (Australia) - - First Drives -

In­finiti is hop­ing to have QX50S in its Aus­tralian show­rooms by the mid­dle of next year. Spokesman Tony Mee said it was too early to talk about ex­act pric­ing but we can “ex­pect it to be com­pet­i­tive” against its di­rect ri­vals. I’m guess­ing that trans­lates to ‘cheaper than the Ger­mans’.

“The QX50 rep­re­sents a big op­por­tu­nity for the brand to con­tinue to es­tab­lish a strong foot­print in Aus­tralia, thanks to the grow­ing pop­u­lar­ity of medium SUVS in the pre­mium mar­ket,” he added.

“The new VC en­gine will be a key sell­ing point when it ar­rives in show­rooms. In­finiti has a rich his­tory of in­tro­duc­ing world-first tech­nolo­gies to mar­ket – and the vari­able com­pres­sion en­gine is an­other ex­am­ple of its tech­no­log­i­cal ca­pa­bil­i­ties.”
