Infiniti Shows Off Slightly Refreshed 2018 Q50 in Geneva
Nissan Motor Co.’s premium Infiniti brand already made news before the 2017 Geneva Motor Show with its Project Black S performance concept car based on the muscular Q60 Red Sport 400 hybrid compact sport sedan. Now, the Hong Kong-based brand is showing off a refreshed Q50 compact premium car with a few styling changes, interior upgrades, new trim levels, and consolidated technology updates. The new 2018 Infiniti Q50 will begin reaching U.S. dealer showrooms in the second quarter this year.
The Q50 has been refreshed inside and out and is now available with new trim levels, including Pure, Luxe, Sport, and the higher-end Red Sport 400 treatment. Subtle styling enhancements match some of those added to the Q60 compact premium car model. Eyelike headlamps appear slightly bolder and the intakes and sides of the front grille have been slightly modified. Changes inside include more attention to craftsmanship with the use of better-grade materials with stitching and more comfortable seats with spinal support and a new steering wheel.
Infiniti’s most popular model also has a retuned suspension and a range of powertrains including the twin-turbo, 3.0-liter V-6 engine from the brand’s VR powertrain family. In addition, the 2018 Q50 is the first model to include all driver-assistance and collision-avoidance advanced technologies such as lane-departure warning and adaptive cruise control under the ProPilot label that also includes driving technology such as steer by wire.
