Infiniti ESQ launched on the Chinese car market

The slightly controversial Infiniti ESQ has been launched on the China car market. Price starts at 199.800 yuan and ends at 299.800 yuan (32.500 – 48.800 USD). The Infinti ESQ is a China-only crossover SUV, it debuted on the 2014 Chengdu Auto Show in August.
The ESQ is based on the Nissan Juke Nismo. It comes with a hefty body kit, a redesigned grille, and an extra luxurious interior. That screen in the center console however loos awfully small. Power will come from a 1.6 liter four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine with 200hp and 250nm mated to a CVT.
The Nissan Juke is currently not available in China, not even as an import, so Chinese car buyers won’t directly think the ESQ is just a dressed up Juke. Interestingly, the ESQ doesn’t have a Infiniti logo on the grille. This could indicate that the Juke-ESQ is the first of a line of ESQ sub-branded cars aimed at young Chinese buyers.
Fat ass diffuser for sporty. Fog light in F1 style. This ESQ, is a fast car for fast people.
No Infiniti or Nissan logo on the engine. Just ESQ.
She must be smiling.
