Likely to be on sale in the United Kingdom late in 2018, the QX50 is of similar proportions to the new BMW X3 but comes with an enormous boot that sees luggage space ranging from 895 to 1,699 litres - more than enough for three golf bags.

With just a couple of days before the opening of today's (Nov. 29) Los Angeles International Auto Show, Infiniti finally unveiled their new QX50 to the world and from the facts and figures that they showcased, they might have actually lived up to their earlier claim. It manages this impressive feat thanks to variable compression design.

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: attractive design, advanced technology and empowering performance".

Inside there's more space than before with higher quality materials with an asymmetric layout.

The petrol unit delivers the power of a six-cylinder engine with the fuel economy of a four-cylinder to compete in the diesel dominated SUV sector. Specifically, the Q50 will adjust the cylinder compression ratio from 8:1 to 14:1 on demand, enabling it quickly switch between a fuel efficient low-boost, high-compression operation to a more powerful high-boost, low-compression setup - all within the span of 1.5 seconds.
