Infiniti QX50 Concept Preview
As far as interior design and décor are concerned, Infiniti says the interior "challenges conventional thinking...with elevated levels of modern craftsmanship".
Taller and wider than the Infiniti QX Inspiration Sport concept vehicle, the QX50 Concept is equipped with a more vertical rear hatch to supply the added practicality expected of this type of vehicle.
This is Infiniti's third-generation mid-size SUV after the US, China and Middle East variously sold the EX (2007-2013) and the QX50 (2013-present) but is the first to be prepared for global markets, including Australia. It was revealed previous year and is said to be production-ready - expect it to debut in a production auto in 2018. Look for the Concept to slide into production form largely unchanged and significantly shake up the premium segment.
The QX50 Concept features a variety of leathers - genuine, semi-aniline and synthetic nubuck - for a rich variety of textures and visual depth. There's "dot-quilted" leather all around, plus a digital display behind the wheel and two screens on the dashboard. However, the arrival of the VC-T 2.0-litre petrol engine should help alleviate that. Two technologies make this an interesting auto: the capacity to dive without your hands on the steering wheel and the variable compression turbo engine. Instead of shiny wood, Infiniti has incorporated real, open-pore ash into the trim of the cabin.
What to know about influenza before peak flu season
A 65-year-old Napa County resident died on Thursday from an influenza virus infection, Napa County Public Health reported Friday. Symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle aches, chills, and sometimes vomiting and diarrhea.
The QX50 will lay groundwork for an autonomous driving future.
Finally, using this concept, Infiniti is also previewing their new autonomous drive support technologies, based on a system that will act more like a co-pilot, helping the driver navigate stop-start traffic and keeping track of his or her surroundings.
The ability to change the compression ratio of the combustion process on the run allows the engine to automatically alter its output and fuel consumption, varying its power output and fuel use relative to driver demands.
"We have to look at technology for customers and this engine offers performance of a V6 with fuel economy of a four-cylinder diesel", he said at the Detroit motor show.

Infiniti president Roland Krueger said the QX50 concept is close to the production SUV version.
Infiniti has enjoyed significant success in North America and it's hoped the QX50 Concept - and the vehicle it ultimately foreshadows - will help the company replicate its accomplishments this side of the Atlantic.
After releasing a first batch of images with their new QX50 Concept back in December, Infiniti also let us know that visually, this vehicle was meant to be an evolution of their 2016 QX Sport Inspiration concept.
