  1. [Join This Event!] More than 20 years in the making, the world’s first production variable compression ratio engine is now available in Singapore. INFINITI, a Japanese luxury car brand that would challenge the prevailing American and European luxury brands with more human-centric design and empowerment in your drive. Partnering with sgCarMart & MyCarForum for the very first time, HangOut with them as you discover the works of this technological revolution. What's a VC-Turbo engine? As a thread starter, I will explain what a VC-Turbo engine is in my own terms. These pictorials should further illustrate how it works to you petrolheads. In simple words, it is like a car tuner who is constantly tuning your car to your needs - transformative in nature. As some of you may know, a high-performance vehicle usually comes with a shorter compression, which will result in more horsepower. And a fuel-efficient car often has a longer compression ratio to utilize the fuel combustion to make it more efficient. Watch this video for full illustration. None of the manufacturers in the market has mastered this technology, but INFINITI managed to achieve a revolutionary breakthrough. Utilizing an advanced multi-link system, VC-Turbo can adjust its compression ratio on-the-fly and at running speed automatically. While other engines are trapped within a fixed compression ratio, providing the same balance of power and efficiency regardless of the situation. The VC-Turbo continuously adapts and reacts, raising or lowering its pistons’ reach seamlessly and continuously. In short, this is one engine I have always wanted. There are times on the highway where I wish I can sprint faster, and there are moments that I just want to ensure my fuel consumption can help me save that extra dollar. Don't mark my words, go and experience the world's first VC-turbo engine yourself! Still curious? Find out more when you join this event!

    MCF Hangout with INFINITI

    Over 40 MyCarForum (MCF) members gathered at the INFINITI showroom on Leng Kee Road last Saturday, to get up close and personal with the new INFINITI All-New QX50. Particularly unique about the All-New QX50 is that it offers INFINITI’s VC-Turbo engine, the world’s first variable compression engine in a mass production car. To get MCF members to know more, Isaac Tan, Product Specialist of INFINITI, was on hand to chat a little bit more on how it all works, including sharing about its other advanced features such as its Active Torque Rod vibration cancelling engine mounts, and the All-New QX50’s safety assistance features. Idris Talib, from sgCarMart’s Editorial Team, also shared his experience driving the INFINITI QX50, and how it fares against other mid-sized SUVs in the market. Aside from checking out the QX50 and the rest of the range INFINITI has to offer, MCF members at the event also stood a chance to win attractive lucky draw prizes. MCF members also checked out the QX80, a large SUV with a lot of road presence. Isaac shared how the All-New QX50's Active Torque Rod works to cancel out vibrations from transmitting into the cabin, with a strategically placed active engine mount. Idris also shared his experience driving the All-New QX50, and how the car offers a spirited drive despite having a CVT transmission. That wasn't all the activities at the showroom. Participants also played a round of Bingo! One lucky MCF member walked away with the grand lucky draw prize, a weekend driveaway with the INFINITI All-New QX50, worth $1,000.
  3. 2019 Infiniti QX50 starts fresh with a new face and trick engine https://www.autoblog.com/2017/11/24/2019-infiniti-qx50-revealed/ Last week, Infiniti rolled out the refresh of the big daddy QX80 in Dubai. At this year's Los Angeles Auto Show, the Japanese automaker is poised to reveal something that's bound to be far more mainstream: the 2019 Infiniti QX50 and its trick variable compression turbocharged engine, or VC-T. In addition to the new engine, the QX50 drops rear-wheel drive in favor of an all-new front-wheel-drive platform and gets the new ProPilot assist technology that debuted on the Nissan Leaf. The QX50 may be the headliner, but the engine is the really interesting bit. This 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four can adjust the the stroke of the pistons on the fly, varying the engine's compression from 8:1 to 14:1, and giving the new midsize crossover improved efficiency and diesel-like torque. It's rated at 268 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, down 57 horses but up 14 pound-feet. Front-wheel-drive models hit 60 mph in 6.7 seconds. That drops to 6.2 seconds with all-wheel drive. Combined fuel economy is 27 mpg for front-wheel-drive QX50s and 26 mpg for all-wheel-drive variants, both up from the abysmal 20 mpg combined rating of the current model. Power is sent through a continuously variable transmission. If it's like other Nissan and Infiniti CVTs, it will be inoffensive if a bit lifeless. We've covered the details of this powertrain extensively already, but it's great to see companies giving more life to the internal combustion engine. The new platform marks a big improvement over the outgoing QX50 in terms of platform rigidity and space efficiency. Rear-wheel drive might be fun, but it's never ideal from a packaging perspective. Cargo capacity is up from 31.6 cubic-feet to 37 cubic-feet. With the seats down, the space expands to 60 cubic feet, up from 50.1 cubic feet. That's not exactly class-leading, but it's no longer among the class-worst. The 2019 QX50 will use a new type of high-tensile steel, improving torsional rigidity by 23 percent and shaving overall weight.
