The Infiniti Q50 was launched earlier in the year with just the diesel and V6 hybrid engines offered.

The Infiniti Q50 is now also available with a turbo-charged four-cylinder petrol engine.

Producing 155kW and 350Nm, Infiniti says the new engine delivers combined fuel consumption of 7.3L/100kms and joins the 2.2 litre turbo-diesel and 3.5 litre petrol V6 hybrid power plants. All come fitted with a seven-speed automatic transmission.

The new engine is available in all three specifications of the Q50, including the S, S Premium and GT and Richard Emery, Managing Director and CEO of Infiniti Cars Australia, says the four-cylinder unit is an exciting addition.

“This is an exceptional driver’s car and, like the turbo-diesel and hybrid-powered Q50, it embodies Infiniti’s brand hallmarks of impressive performance, provocative styling and clever but intuitive technologies.”
