What do you think about the Eau Rouge styling? Should it be applied to the QX50?

I'm not so sure that putting more carbon fiber on the QX50 would look good. It might be useful as far as reducing weight but I don't think it will do much for the styling. It would be nice to get a few more contours on the side of the QX50.

They don't have any real CF on the QX50 so if and when they do add it, it will be a nice "upgrade"
There's is styling to it. Compare a regular Q50 to the Eau Rouge model and you'll see, it's not significant but it's enough to signify it's a performance model

ok fine but I think theres alot more on the QX50 that needs to be updated before they even dream of a performance derivative. The QX50 is 7 years old, alot has changed in terms of technology and more importantly consumer tastes...

you're right, chances are they developed the next generation model with a high performance trim in mind, which helps. using the current platform would be hard since it was not likely built with high performance in mind

Is there a different body kit on the Eau Rouge Q50? I didn't really notice anything different in styling between the Eau Rouge and the regular Q50.

the lower portion of the front bumper has some big changes. the rest is simple enough, side skirts and rear diffuser.

Even the Sentra SE-R had an aggressive kit going on, nissan always goes a good job with performance aero.

I think that is just the concept m4

i doubt the production will be that low to the ground

plus the Q50 is still a family sedan

the M4 is a performance coupe. it deserves to be lower and more aggressive. the q50 needs to stay practical.

Likely the production model will sit a bit higher, overall the ride height seems practical enough on a production model if you look at other shots of it.
