Because of that, there are few different predictions about 2017 Infiniti Q40. According to some reports, this nameplate will be reserved for a model which will be based on new Q30 model, and which will come in some specific body styles like coupe or convertible. On the other side, there are predictions that new 2017 Infiniti Q40 will be a completely new model. It will stand between Q30 and Q50 in Infiniti’s lineup. However, we don’t believe that this could happen, simply because these two models are already close enough when it comes to size and class. We are close to the third possibility, where 2017 Q40 won’t even come.

If company decide to launch new 2017 Infiniti Q40, we believe that it will feature a 2.0 liter engine that is used both for Q30 and Q50 for sure. This engine will be tuned to about 210 horses. There is also a possibility to see some V6 engine, but new 3.0 liter unit with 400 horses sounds a bit too much for this model. Some diesel option is also possible. When it is about transmission, expect both manual and automatic variants.
