Infinit's new 2.0 litre turbocharged petrol Q50 medium sedan will hit Australian showrooms in the fourth quarter of 2014, the company's local arm has confirmed today.

Revealed in November, the Mercedes Benz-powered Q50 has made its European motor show debut in Geneva today.

The four-cylinder turbo engine, which produces 157kW at 5500rpm and 320Nm at 1250-3500rpm, replaces the discontinued 2.5 litre V6 (formerly available in overseas markets) in the Q50 range.

The four-cylinder petrol engine sends power to the rear wheels through a seven-speed automatic transmission. Fuel figures are still to come.

The new entry-level engine joins the local range alongside the Mercedes-sourced 2.2 litre diesel, as part of the technical partnership announced at the start of this year.

An up-specced 3.5 litre V6 hybrid powertrain (making 270kW) is also available in the Australian Q50 line-up.

Hitting Australia last month, the Infiniti Q50 is a new model for Australia, joining the G coupe and convertible models and replacing the G sedan that was never sold here.

Eventually, a Q60 Coupe and Convertible will replace the equivalent G series models now on sale in Australia.

Infiniti plans to increase its model range by 60 percent and more than double its current powertrain options over the next five years.

China will be the first market to get the new Mercedes-powered entry-level Q50, with European sales set to begin in the Australian autumn of 2014.

Speaking with TMR today, Infiniti Australia's Peter Fadeyev confirmed a fourth-quarter local launch, with specific timing still to be locked in.
