According to the latest reports, Nissan’s luxury division is expanding its lineup. The newest addition should be a new entry-level sedan, which will come as 2019 Infiniti Q40.
In the current lineup, Infiniti has a lot of models of compact size. There is a small hatchback Q30, designed for the European market. On the other side, Q50 is a successor of G series, as a compact sedan. Logically, the new model will slot between.
In terms of base design characteristics, the new model should be a small sedan, which will perfectly balance between luxury and practicality. It will come as a classic four-door sedan, with small dimensions. The exact platform is still unclear, though there are two possibilities. Company’s engines are familiar, so we can guess which of them will find the place under the hood. Expect to see the new mode in the next year.
2019 Infiniti Q40 redesign
Speaking of base design characteristics, the new 2019 Infiniti Q40 will be an entry-level sedan. Besides compact dimensions, we are about to see plenty of luxury. Still, the exact details about the platform are still unknown. It is still unclear will the new sedan be based on the Q30 or on the Q50 model. In the first case, it would mean the same Modular Fron Architecture from Mercedes-Benz.
It this version, the new 2019 Infiniti Q40 would probably look very close to the Q30, a least when it comes to the front end. On the other side, Q50 rides on the Nissan FM platform, which is a little bit bigger. In this case, the company will have to make a few tweaks and provide a little bit shorter wheelbase. In any case, the new sedan is about to come with a completely new styling.

When it comes to the aesthetical aspect, the 2019 Infiniti Q40 is about to come with plenty of new details. The new sedan will adopt the brand’s newest design language. This means plenty of smooth lines, instead plenty of sharpness, which is a common thing among modern cars. At the front, we are about to see a familiar design philosophy.
Expect to see something similar to Q30, though few tweaks are possible. The overall sleek profile will be ended with the rear end that will take inspiration from the bigger Q50. On the inside, expect to see plenty of quality materials. We can’t say how exactly the new cabin will look like but expect a lot of similarities with Q30. On the other side, we can count on quality soft-touch materials, attractive color schemes and plenty of tech features.
2019 Infiniti Q40 engines
There are several engines that could find the place under the 2019 Infiniti Q40’s platform. In case that new sedan gets Q30’s architecture, it will certainly feature the same engines.
This means a familiar 2.0-liter gasoline engine from Mercedes, which is good for about 210 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque.
There is also a 2.2-liter diesel engine, which could be in use if the new model comes to Europe or some other market where demand for oil burners is big. These two engines use the same 7-speed automatic transmission.
Another possibility is to see a new 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6, which is good for about 300 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. This engine also uses a 7-speed automatic transmission. Finally, there is a chance to see a hybrid version.
2019 Infiniti Q40 release date and price
