2018 Infiniti Q50 DebutsMarch 6th, 2017
Infiniti has unveiled an update to its Q50 sedan at the 2017 Geneva Auto Show. While it’s not dramatically changed from current model, the new Q50 has a “refreshed” exterior and interior design. The most significant changes are the updated front end and lower air intakes. Around back, the taillights have a more modern and sleek design.
The car will also be getting an improved second-generation version of its Direct Adaptive Steering tech, a steer-by-wire system that makes it easier to adapt steering to a variety of driving conditions, and provide isolation between road bumps and the wheel. The company says that this tech is a precursor to autonomous driving tech.
Like the current models, Infiniti will offer the Q50 with five engine options, ranging from a 168 hp 4-cylinder up to a 400 hp 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine in the Red Sport 400. Infiniti also will offer a hybrid drivetrain with a 3.5-liter V6 and a 50 kW electric motor that produce a combined 365 hp.
