    Discover the INFINITI QX50 Concept, which showcases the latest in INFINITI's developing vision for the future of mid-size premium SUVs.

    All models come with the new VC-T engine, denoting variable compression ratio turbocharged. Rather than America — the strongest market for the Japanese brand — our first taste of the car that will arrive here early in comes in one of the most sparsely populated countries on the planet, Mongolia. Combined with its motion activated lift gate, QX50 lets you load and unload with ease. Send We respect your privacy. An electric tailgate makes accessing the luggage area easier, although very tall people may prefer it to rise a fraction higher.

    That becomes clear 30 hours into a marathon four-flight journey to get to the Mongolian destination of our drive of the mid-sized SUV from luxury aspirant Infiniti, owned by Nissan. It ends with a landing on a bumpy grassy strip of the Gobi Desert, our Cessna bounding to a halt as we soak up the vast surrounds of our destination.

    Rather than America — the strongest market for the Japanese brand — our first taste of the car that will arrive here early in comes in one of the most sparsely populated countries on the planet, Mongolia. The QX50 will be right for many people because it sits bang in the sweet spot of the luxury segment — mid-sized SUVs. No word on what will be standard for Australia, although Infiniti has typically loaded its cars generously to try to stand out in the busy luxury space.

    Infiniti is yet to announce details on models, but expect all to come with the latest active safety gear, including auto emergency braking and ProPilot Assist, which assists with steering, accelerating and braking on country roads. The pre-production car we drove emerged from a factory in China, whereas our QX50s will come from Mexico.

    Our QX50 was nicely put together and it's clear that attention to detail has been a major focus for the brand. Whereas some Infinitis have whiffed of the Nissans they share components with underneath, the QX50 does a much better job at creating a luxury flavour. Quality metal finishes and an interesting blonde wood sweep across the dash nicely complementing the stitched leather. The way components are put together is also great. Our only complaint being some creaking from the tailgate over the bumpy Gobi roads, most likely a product of its dusty desert life.

    The new ProPilot active safety system brings autonomous braking and driver assistance tech, all aimed at making driving easier and accounting for human error. Innovation counts for so much in the luxury market and the QX50 arrives with some important ones. It uses a clever mechanical system to adjust where the piston operates within the cylinder, in turn subtly changing the capacity of the engine by just 27cc, or about one teaspoon per cylinder.

    That change can vary the compression ratio from The QX50 also gets a steer-by-wire system, which employs a digital system to control which way the wheels turn. Those wanting more fizz elsewhere can look to the excellent Bose sound system.

    It uses a noise cancelling system for the 17 speakers, something all about lowering engine and tyre noise. We also like that Infiniti has forged its own path with its infotainment system and interior presentation, rather than copying others. Snug and supportive seats work well for bouncy drives, something we have plenty of experience with.

    The QX50 gets noise cancelling as part of the Bose sound system, something that counters certain frequencies for a calmer cabin. An electric tailgate makes accessing the luggage area easier, although very tall people may prefer it to rise a fraction higher. The QX50 boasts a generic five-seat SUV layout that offers respectable head room even in the rear with the panoramic sunroof fitted to our car and a generous boot.

    Rear legroom is also thoroughly respectable. Keep accelerating and it revs closer to rpm, the punchy kW shifting things forward with enthusiasm. Less impressive is the CVT, or continuously variable transmission, which steps through pre-set ratios during hard acceleration. The infinitely adjustable automatic transmission takes a second or two to wind up, the hesitation dulling that otherwise impressive acceleration. All our driving was on loose gravel and sand surfaces and involved lots of accelerating and braking to dodge dips and humps.
