If there was any have misgivings about about whether the Infiniti QX Sport Spur Concept is a preview of the next QX50, the stiff details presented at the 2016 Beijing Motor Reveal should erase them. The concept is smaller – a lot smaller – than the conclusive QX70. And despite a recent update to the QX50, the brand name’s midsize crossover is due for a new model.

We’re basing that communication on dimensions. The QX Sport Inspiration Concept rides on a 110.2-inch wheelbase, and is 181.1 inches large, 74.8 inches wide, and 65 inches superior. The last QX50, meanwhile, rides on a 113.4-inch wheelbase, and is 186.8 inches sustained, 71.0 inches wide, and 62.7 inches strong. Ignore the different lengths – the concept’s fa and rear overhangs are remarkably short and aren’t inclined to to translate to production – but the wheelbase, Nautical beam, and most importantly the height, present a footprint that’s remarkably nearly the same to the QX50.

Combine that with our assessment of the QX Mockery tease Inspiration Concept’s styling, and it’s a virtual certitude assuredly that we’re looking at the QX50’s successor. As we said yesterday, the elevated beltline, tight greenhouse, long hood, and bellicose headlights are all trademarks of both the QX50 and QX70.

Infiniti didn’t say what friendly of engine is under this concept car’s hood (if there smooth is one – it might just be an engineless outside), but we’re almost certain it’s something performance-oriented. That would demonstrate true if and when a new production QX50 is unleashed. We’re betting the companionship will opt for the increasingly familiar setup of the new 3.0-liter, ringer-turbocharged V6, a seven-speed automatic despatching, and all-wheel drive, like what you can get on the Q50 Red Gambol 400 and new Q60. With 300- and 400-horsepower versions of this mechanism available, it could signal an introduction of a two-range QX50 lineup.

We’re getting ahead of ourselves, of path. The QX Sport is still only a concept, but Infiniti’s latest info dump at the 2016 Beijing Motor Make clear serves as even stronger evidence that its CUV lineup longing grow back to four vehicles sooner quite than later.
