Infiniti Q60 and QX30 to make European debut at Geneva
Previously shown at the Detroit Motor Show, the Q60 brings a new 400bhp V6 twin-turbo engine with an all-new electronic suspension system, Dynamic Digital Suspension and the brand’s second-generation Direct Adaptive Steering.
In addition, the QX30 – which debuted in concept form at last year’s Geneva – builds on the Q30 with suspension that’s been raised by 30mm as well as body cladding and an asymmetric cabin design.
They will be joined by the refreshed Q50 sports saloon, which as announced in December, gains a new top-of-the range V6 petrol engine and upgraded ride and handling technologies.
Francois Goupil de Bouille, Infiniti vice president, Europe, Middle East and Africa, commented: “This is an exciting time for Infiniti, as we have transformed our product line-up and established sales records across the globe and in our region in particular. The new models set for their European debuts in Geneva highlight our commitment to expanding our product portfolio in new and thrilling directions, based on daring concept cars. This is the Infiniti way, and one that will help us achieve further success in 2016 and beyond.”
The models are launched in the middle of an intense global product launch period for the brand. Infiniti globally sold a record 215,250 new vehicles in 2015, representing a year-on-year rise of 16%. In Western Europe, 7,000 customers bought a new Infiniti last year, an increase of 45% over 2014.
