Infiniti ESQ teases Nissan Juke design ahead of its official debut

Article by Andrew Christian, on June 11, 2014

We already knew that Infiniti was planning a new crossover based on the Nissan Juke but nothing was officially confirmed. Until today, when several photos showing a new crossover from Infiniti based on the Nissan Juke design, emerged on the web.

Dubbed Infiniti ESQ, the new crossover comes with a new front grille that features the ‘ESQ’ lettering as well as stylish 18-inch alloy wheels and gloss black side sills.

From the photo showing the front grille we can easily observe the Nissan Juke design, which means that we expect the two vehicles to be very similar. The only difference will be the premium feel delivered by the Infiniti ESQ.

Another photo shows the instrument cluster and the steering wheel that features the Infiniti logo. The interior is expected to make the difference between the ESQ and Juke. Under the hood, we expect to see the turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that generates 200 hp (147 kW) and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque.

The engine will use a continuously variable transmission (CVT) and deliver the power to the road via an all-wheel drive system. The new Infiniti ESQ will be introduced later this year in China.
