The second-generation Infiniti QX50 crossover has been teased ahead of its debut on November 28 in Los Angeles.

The brush stroke silhouette of the new car was used on an invite to the car’s launch at the end of this month.

Nissan’s luxury division has yet to reveal any further details about the new car, except to say it will be the “most advanced Infiniti in our history”.

If spy photos and the QX50 Concept, unveiled at this year’s Detroit motor show, are any guide, the new crossover will switch from a rear- and all-wheel drive platform shared with the Q50 sedan, to front- and all-wheel underpinnings.

This will address one of the key issues with today’s car: interior space, or the lack thereof.

The QX50 will be available with the company’s new 2.0-litre variable compression turbo (VC-T) petrol engine. Revealed in 2016, the VC-T motor can vary its compression ratio from 8:1 for high performance to 14:1 for high efficiency operation.

Reported to develop around 200kW of power and 390Nm of torque, the 2.0-litre VC-T will likely replace the 224kW/360Nm 3.7-litre V6 used in the current QX50.

Although the QX50, and its EX predecessor, which debuted way back in 2007, were never sold Down Under, the new model is on Infiniti Australia’s wish list, although timing and availability have yet to be confirmed.

If the car does go on sale locally, it will likely be pitched against the BMW X3, Mercedes-Benz GLC, and Lexus NX.
