2014 Infiniti Q50 at a glance

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) The 2014 Infiniti Q50 sports sedan brings distinctive design, engaging performance, world's first technologies and unmatched levels of connectivity and personalization to the roads of North America when it goes on sale in summer 2013. The all-new Q50 is designed for a new generation of young, premium customers seeking Infiniti's unique fusion of inspired performance and hospitality.


Taking many of its seductive styling cues from the Infiniti Essence concept, the Q50's tight, athletic appearance blends low, wide proportions with excellent interior roominess to a class marked by unexciting design.

Inside, the Q50 interior offers a driver-centric cockpit with an array of premium comfort and convenience features. The new Infiniti InTouch(TM) communications system includes large dual touch-screen displays and puts communication with the outside world within easy reach, with integration of hands-free phone, moving mapnavigation, entertainment and smart phone apps in a way that is safe and easy-touse while driving.

Infiniti's sports sedan performance leadership continues with the new Q50, which is available with a choice of a refined 328-horsepower (est.) 3.7-liter V6 or new Q50 Hybrid featuring Infiniti's Direct Response Hybrid System(TM)with Intelligent Dual Clutch Control. All models come equipped with a refined 7-speed automatic transmission with available solid magnesium paddle shifters. The Infiniti Drive Mode Selector with Snow, Eco, Standard, Sport and Custom settings is also standard on all models, part of the advanced customizable digital environment system that allows drivers to create unique settings for engine, transmission, handling and steering settings.

Two new world's first production performance technologies make their debuts in the Q50 - Infiniti Direct Adaptive Steering(TM)technology and Active Lane Control(TM). The new steering system allows advanced control of the Q50's tire angle and steering inputs, transmitting the driver's intentions to the wheels faster than a mechanical system. Four different steering settings are offered, allowing customization by driver preference or road conditions. The Active Lane Control(TM)uses a camera-based lane marker detection system to further enhance on-center driving capability and improve vehicle straightability.

The 2014 Infiniti Q50 3.7-liter V6 and 3.5-liter Hybrid models will be available with a choice of rear-wheel drive or Intelligent All-Wheel Drive, and in a range of wellequipped models, including versions with special sport appearance and performance features with sport brakes and sport suspension tuning.
