As Infiniti begins to completely reinvent its line of vehicles, the Infiniti Q50S takes first position as the introductory model demonstrating many of the new design features that are more than engineering and technological changes. Known as the high-end line of cars with the curves, the Infiniti make is debuting a new look.
It’s all about performance with a 3.7-liter, 24-valve V6 engine that outputs 328 horsepower, 327 lb-ft of torque and gets nearly 30 mpg. This efficient and powerful engine boasts a sporty and tight feel when cornering, and the reduced weight and power provide for a responsive drive. On board is the world’s first system using electronics to streamline the steering mechanism for a more controlled feel behind the wheel, according to Infiniti. The Direct Adaptive Steering™ system allows for customization, providing three driver-selectable modes — heavy, standard and light. Each wheel is equipped with port pistons and rotors for “pure stopping power” and its sport-tuned suspension. Infiniti’s Intelligent All-Wheel Drive provides power and support on demand, instantly adapting to the changing conditions of the road.
The design is sport luxury with a unique air dam grill fascia and 19-inch split-spoke aluminum alloy wheels. The sculpted exterior design is eye-catching with its impressive aerodynamic curves and styling. The artisan-stitched, leather-appointed upholstery and polished woods give luxury on the road a whole new meaning and level of comfort. An easy-to-reach dual touch-screen display encompasses all of the latest technologies to keep the owner connected, secure and mapped. InTouch Apps by Infiniti, smartphone syncing and remote smartphone access mean the mind is on driving while the connection reaches the rest of the world but while fully engulfing the driver in the surround sound. The BOSE® sound system and HD radio erupts with an acoustical sound that is like none other.
