Infiniti Q50 makes Glasgow debut as part of UK pre-launch tour

Infiniti Q50 photoFollowing its debut at the Geneva Motor Show last month, the new Infiniti Q50 is to make an appearance at Infiniti Centre Glasgow from April 9-11 as part of a UK tour five months ahead of its official arrival date.

The Infiniti Q50 is a premium sports saloon and represents a major step forwards for the Infiniti Centre network. Centre manager Jason Blane explains why: “The Q50 is the first Infiniti vehicle that has been produced with the European market in mind and as such allows us to appeal to a much wider audience than we have ever been able to before.”

With a 2.2-litre four cylinder diesel engine that emits under 115g/km CO2 it has been designed around the needs of both private and business customers. It can provide fuel economy in excess of 65mpg while still maintaining a good level of performance, with 170 PS of power and 400Nm of available torque. This engine ensures low tax and running costs with a starting price of just over £27,000.

The other technologically-advanced engine available is a sophisticated petrol V6 hybrid. It is the more performance biased of the two engines with acceleration from 0-62mph to be under 5.5 seconds but with CO2 below 145g/km and fuel economy of around 45mpg it will still attract low taxation. This engine is also available with a four wheel drive option.

Other dates for the Infiniti Centre Q50 UK Tour are:

Hull (April 12-14)
Reading (April 16-18)
Stockport (April 20-22)
Piccadilly, London (April 25-27)
