The 2018 Infiniti QX50 has been revealed in a single image ahead of its debut at the Los Angeles motor show next week.

Even though the new luxury SUV uses the same design concept as last year's Infinity SUV, this one is way better.

Infiniti has chose to reveal the 2019 QX50 in advance of its debut slated for next week. Inside, Infiniti says the new SUV will have class-leading space, with 895 litres of cargo room with all the seats in place, 1,048 L with the rear seats slid forward and 1,699L with them folded.

Aside from premiering in front of the worldwide audience of the LA Auto Show in an all-new generation, the QX50 also premiere the world's first production-ready variable compression ratio engine. The VC-Turbo unit, which was previewed initially in 2016, is what the company calls "a breakthrough in combustion engine design", and we're inclined to agree. It also has something that is all-new in the automotive industry, an engine that can adjust its compression ratio on the fly for optimized performance and efficiency. Meanwhile, thanks to the fact that this new-generation XQ50 is a clean sheet design, built from the ground up on a new platform with new materials and a closer focus on performance; the resulting auto has a much greater torsional rigidity, meaning that it could also be on a par in terms of handling and driver involvement, too.

Mated to a CVT gearbox, the 2-litre turbocharged engine produces 200kW and 380Nm and is available in front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive configurations. ProPILOT Assist combines active lane control with adaptive cruise control to drive the crossover down highways with driver attention in stop-and-go traffic and long-distance slogs. The new QX50 borrows much of its look from the bigger, three-row QX60, including a chromed kink near the rear roof pillar and a more upright trapezoidal grille up front. Performance is going to be just as brisk - 60 miles per hour is over in 6.3 seconds with all-wheel drive, and maximum speed reaches 143 mph (230 kph).
