August 24, 2014 2:14 pm

Infiniti Middle East has introduced a powerful new 2.0 Litre turbocharged petrol engine that is now available to all Infiniti Q50 drivers in the region.

The modern, lightweight 4-cylinder powerful petrol engine delivers 208 HP and 350Nm of torque, sending drive to the rear wheels via a 7-speed automatic transmission. Flexible and efficient driving is assisted by an early useable torque delivery that begins at just 1250rpm.

Manufactured with the latest fuel efficiency and tuned by Infiniti engineers for an engaging throttle response, the 2.0T direct injection petrol engine joins the renowned 3.5L V6 high-performance hybrid powertrain and 3.7L V6 in the line-up.

“The launch of the Infiniti Q50 2.0L turbocharged engine marks the next step in the company’s portfolio expansion plan. Set to increase its global model range by 60 percent and more than double the number of its powertrains within the next five years, Infiniti’s commitment promises to cater to a wider audience of discerning customers,” said Juergen Schmitz, Managing Director, Infiniti Middle East.
