I've heard mixed opinions on the design of the Q30, some hate it, some love it. The QX50 will do a better job at pulling off the new design language than the Q30 did here. One of the reasons I think people will get it over the Q30
thats very possible, they cant have 2 vehicle that in the end serve the same purpose, just wont make sense. even if it extends by a few inches it will be different enough.So could we see a V6 or turbo 4 QX50 in the future
We might even see the QX50 grow a bit since there is apparently a QX30 now.
Best way to put it, they really are two very different vehicles but I know people will cross shop them since depending how you price the Q30 you might start stepping into QX50 pricingthe difference is going to be the platform. Q30 is going to ride on the shared MFA platform with Mercedes. This is a small, FWD, 4 cylinder application. While QX50 rides on the larger FM platform shared with the Q50, 370Z and QX70. This is a higher performance, RWD application that deserves a V6 or Turbo 4... at least next gen...
dynamics wise the two will be completely different beasts.
They can but I don't know if Mercedes would be willing to do that, it's their Gem. Im sure this whole ordeal is limited somewhere, Infiniti might be on it's own for this one.I could see a turbo 4 happening but where will they source that engine from is my question. The only thing I could think of at the moment is from mercedes turbo 4 in the CLA 45 AMG.
haha 3 cylinder 1.0 Liter engine, yeah sure, that should get us a 0-60 of 20 seconds at best.Probably just end up with renault engine anyways
exactlyeither way Infiniti has the resources and the know how to develop a 4 cylinder turbo if they wanted to. Wouldn't be a bad idea in the QX50
