Break free from convention in the QX50. We designed this advanced luxury crossover to amplify your drive. A new breed of engine adapts to the conditions for exceptional power and efficiency. Intuitive handling systems let you travel anywhere with poise. Grip the wheel and go beyond.
WORLD’S FIRST VC-TURBO ENGINE
Imagine having superior performance and eco-friendly efficiency on demand. The QX50’s revolutionary new Variable Compression Turbo (VC-Turbo) engine makes it all possible. It automatically transforms to suit your drive, giving you more power when you need it, consuming less fuel when you don’t. It’s like having two advanced engines in one seamless package.
INTELLIGENT ALL-WHEEL DRIVE
Accelerate forward with perfect balance. Intelligent All-Wheel Drive lets you take command of any terrain. When roads are good, it sends full power to your QX50’s front wheels for maximum agility. When conditions are slippery, it redirects up to 50 percent of the power to your rear wheels, increasing traction and control.
DIRECT ADAPTIVE STEERING™
Experience a new level of control with the world’s first digital steering system. Direct Adaptive Steering™ monitors the road ahead, making up to a thousand steering adjustments per second for sharper precision at the wheel. Going one step further, this available system filters out unwanted road vibrations, so every ride is smooth and exhilarating.
Fine-tune your QX50’s performance with the Drive Mode Selector. Choose from three distinct modes, Standard, Eco and Sport, or customize your own. The QX50 will automatically adjust its engine, transmission and steering settings. Tailoring your drive at the flip of a switch.
