New 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol version of Infiniti Q50 will cost from £31,755

Infiniti has revealed that the 2.0-litre turbocharged Infiniti Q50 will cost from £31,755, while a lesser-equipped BMW 328i costs from £29,765.

Currently the Q50 range consists of a 2.2-litre diesel – from £27,950 – and a V6 petrol-electric hybrid, which costs from £39,995. The new 2.0-litre turbo petrol sits between the other two powertrains, not only in terms of price but also in terms of power. It has 211bhp compared with 168bhp in the diesel and 359bhp in the Hybrid.

Unlike the diesel unit, a seven-speed automatic gearbox is standard but Infiniti hasn’t revealed any further information on performance or economy. We’re expecting a 0-62mph time of around 7.5 seconds.

As with the 2.2-litre unit, the 2.0-litre has been developed by Daimler and is used by Infiniti as part of a tie-up between the two companies. It’s being built at Infiniti’s plant in Tennessee, USA.

The Infiniti Q50 2.0 goes on sale in autumn and is part of a push over the next five years that will see the brand double the amount of powertrains it offers in its vehicles. It’s also expecting to increase its line-up of cars by 60 per cent in the same time.

This new 2.0 turbo seems like the best choice in the Q50.
0-62 in 7,5 sec's is also up to par with the competition.

If I was in the market for one this engine would be high on my list. Some CO2 figures would help.

Iv'e been saying for a while they needed an engine like this in a Z car. A 350/370Z with a lower powered 2 ltr turbo would really sell taking sales from the lower spec, SLK's, Z4's etc
