Nissan’s luxury division has just release a single teaser image of the Infiniti QX Sport Inspiration concept, which will be introduced at the upcoming 2016 Beijing Auto Show that starts on April 25. By presenting the concept, the Japanese car manufacturer plans to explain in which direction will go the future SUV lineup. We believe that QX Sport Inspiration actually previews the next generation Infiniti QX70 and especially the new-gen QX50 crossover, which is the oldest vehicle in the Infiniti’s high-riding lineup.
Since we have just one photo it is quite hard to conclude what is the actual idea of the Infiniti QX Sport Inspiration concept. However, by looking the details we must say that the concept SUV strongly resembles the 2017 Q60 coupe, but features notably rugged bodywork. The front end sports pretty amazing cues, which will likely stay at the production models. There are quite stylish and aggressive multi-LED headlights and carmaker’s distinctive grille, as well as really odd bumper styling, which seem to feature the air curtain.
The QX Sport Inspiration should be paired with a new 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine that delivers around 300 horsepower. The engine will likely power the next generation QX70 and QX50 crossovers, so it is expected to power the concept SUV. Still, the carmaker could surprise us with something different – maybe with a hybrid drivetrain?
In any case, the Infiniti QX Sport Inspiration concept will be introduced very soon, so we will know more about it.
