2015 Infiniti ESQ reveals its Juke-based design ahead of Chengdu Auto Show

Article by Andrew Christian, on August 26, 2014

Infiniti released the first teasers of its Juke-based ESQ crossover back in June but no more details were released. Today however, the first photos with the Infiniti ESQ emerged on the Web and we must admit that we do like the vehicle as it comes with a premium feel.

Although the original shape of the Nissan Juke is retained, the ESQ arrives with a brand new grille featuring the centered ‘ESQ’ lettering, black covers for the exterior mirrors, a new front lip spoiler, new rocker panels as well as a redesigned rear bumper with integrated air diffuser and exhaust tip.

The design is completed by the new multi-spoke alloy wheels. Inside, we find a brand new multifunctional leather-wrapped steering wheel fitted with the Infiniti badge, leather sport seats and white stitching.

Under the hood, the Infiniti ESQ uses the same engine as the Juke and this means we find a 1.6-liter turbocharged petrol engine that generates 200 hp (147 kW) and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque.

The engine comes as standard with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) that delivers the power to the road via the all-wheel-drive system. Infiniti will officially unveil the new ESQ on August 29 at the 2014 Chengdu Auto Show and the crossover is set to go on sale in China this October.

Pricing will start at 200,000 yuan ($32,500) for the entry-level version, while the most expensive model will cost 300,000 yuan ($48,700).
