Los Angeles 2016: Infiniti shows QX Sport Inspiration concept, VC-Turbo engine (videos)

Infiniti’s new QX Sport Inspiration crossover concept and Variable Compression Turbo engine technology, which we last saw in Paris earlier this fall, will make their North American debut at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show starting tomorrow with media day.

The former explores the potential to expand Infiniti’s portfolio in the midsize SUV market, while the latter will mark the world's first production-ready variable compression ratio engine, available in new Infiniti models from 2018.

“In a city known for its appreciation for great automotive design and environmental sustainability, Infiniti is delighted show the new design direction for our future SUVs, as well as the world’s first variable compression ratio engine, for the first time in North America,” said Roland Krueger, president of Infiniti. “We are undergoing a major product offensive based on our strengths in design and innovation, and, as such, are poised to have another record year.”
