Infiniti Q50 Malaysia Aloft- 10

The Infiniti Q50 – the world’s first production car to be ‘steered by wire‘ – is on display at the Aloft KL Sentral hotel (special thanks to reader Justin Lee for the tip!) and so we bring you a gallery of the compact exec that’s expected to launch in Malaysia sometime this year.

Crucially, the banner behind the car makes mention of a turbocharged, direct-injected 2.0 litre petrol engine that develops 214 hp, which pretty much confirms the powerplant for Malaysia. The four-cylinder motor should be mated to a seven-speed auto.

Like the US-market example shown at KLIMS13 last year, this Q50 S features a more aggressive-looking front bumper (see regular Q50) and striking 19-inch alloys. Looks quite a treat, doesn’t it?
