Infiniti QX50 Concept



 This is Infiniti's latest concept version of the next QX50.


Not sure why Infiniti calls this a concept since it is pretty much what we'll be getting as the QX50 for 2018.

Compared to the first concept from last year, it looks like they took any sign of personality out of the design.
This is just super boring and uninspired.
It also switches to a FWD platform...

Way to go Infiniti!



This is last year's concept.

Which had quite a bit of personality. It looks like every interesting line will be taken out of the production version.

It was called the EX. There was never an Infiniti GX.

You are correct sir!

The same thing happened to the EX when it went from concept to production. It is amazing what some small detail changes can do to a design.

Good. To many accent lines and curves make most modern cars look terrible.

This will be made in Mexico, I think.

Vince, I thought you did not like too many "vulgar" lines. Now you want them back? Geez!

Roofline appears to be a little lower on the first concept, but I think Infiniti did well in tranferring the design over. The same as Mazda did with the 6, in comparison to the Takeri concept. Infiniti looks even truer to form here though with the QX50.

Perfection. This will set new standards for quality performance and sales figures I think.

I like this much better than the QX30. The QX30's (Mercedes GLA mashup) design is too organic and has too many curves for my taste. This Qx50 looks like it'll have more straight lines. Good!

"Boring" and "zero personality" sells very well...

Hmm....For some reason, it does not apply to wagons that "some' of us like....

Maybe Nissan / Infiniti are going to tone down their designs. Very subjective, but the Maxima and Murano are over-styled nightmares, in my opinion.

I think it looks pretty good. I think it's edgy and just enough of a reserved styling aspect.

So basically this is the Infiniti Rouge. Why not use the Q50 platform to keep RWD???
