Infiniti Brings Three European Premieres To Geneva

The QX30, Q50 and Q60 are Infiniti’s debuts for this year’s edition of the Swiss auto show.

Part of Infiniti’s new premium compact lineup, the Infiniti QX30 is a compact crossover with the firm’s familiar design cues. It comes with an ‘Intelligent AWD’ system, combined with elevated ground clearance and a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, offered at no extra cost. The QX30 will be introduced in select European markets in mid-2016.

Updated for 2016, the Q50 premium sports sedan is displayed for the first time at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. The manufacturer states that the vehicle “has played a critical role in the brand’s sustained global growth” and has great confidence in its selection of technology and performance upgrades. Making its debut in the Q50 is the new V6 engine, taken from the Q60, along with the second-gen Direct Adaptive Steering and Dynamic Digital Suspension.

The new Q60 coupe is Infiniti’s third European debut and it comes after a world premiere made two months ago, in Detroit. A new lightweight 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbo engine, from the VR30 family, is offered in Europe in the high-performance 405 PS (399 HP) version, with standard AWD. The car will go on sale on the continent in the second half of 2016.
