2014 Infiniti Q50 made a debut at North American International Auto Show at the beginning of the year, showing to the visitors its full potential, beauty and luxury styling. The car features evolutionary design and features an aggressive front bumper, enlarged grille as well as distinctive headlights. The aerodynamics has been also enhanced and this means that the car returns enough mpg to make the customers happy. Engine range includes an upgraded 3.7-liter V6, a hybridized 3.7-liter V6 and turbocharged petrol units. Now, Infiniti is announcing that the Q50 2-litre petrol is available in its official dealerships.

The lightweight 1991cc turbocharged petrol 4-cylinder engine produces 211 horsepower (155 kW) and 350Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque. The power is transmitted through a seven-speed automatic transmission to the rear wheels. A wide torque band curve that begins at just 1250rpm assists the flexible and efficient driving.

In fact, the 2.0-litre direct injection petrol engine has been manufactured with the latest fuel efficient certified technology. It was also refined by Infiniti engineers and the result is that it delivers engaging throttle response.

The new engine joins the 2.2-litre direct injection turbo-diesel unit and the high-performance V6-configuration hybrid powertrains. Infiniti also disclosed that it plans over the next five years to increase its model range by 60 per cent and to double the number of its powertrains.

Infiniti Q50 petrol is scheduled to make its sales debut in Europe in autumn before rolling out to the rest of Infiniti's global markets by year end.
