Infiniti Q50 gets a new 211bhp 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine

Infiniti will add a new Mercedes-sourced 211bhp 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine to its powertrain portfolio for the Q50 saloon.

The engine had its world premiere last week at the Guangzhou Motor Show and will be available to Chinese customers during spring 2014 before being made available in other markets.

The Q50 engine range currently includes a 3.7-litre petrol, 3.5-litre hybrid and a 2.2-litre, four cylinder turbo-diesel.

The new 211bhp 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol generates 236 lb ft of torque and as with the 2.2-litre direct-injection four-cylinder turbo-diesel, the petrol version has been modified by the Infiniti engineering teams to ensure engine “response is in line with Infiniti’s brand characteristics”.

Infiniti has big plans for the next five years as it plans to increase its vehicle portfolio by 60 percent and more than double the number of its powertrains.
