Infiniti has brought a number of enhancements to their Q50 sports saloon for 2017, which include new exterior and interior design features as well as new in-car technologies.
The 2017 Q50 is now available with a trio of new metallic colors for the exterior. They are Midnight Black, Pure White and Dynamic Sunstone Red, which replaces the old Venetian Ruby. Q50S 3.0t models powered by the automaker’s new 400 HP 3.0-liter V6 twin turbo VR engine will also receive red brake calipers to go along with their fresh exteriors.
Inside, buyers can now choose a new Designer Pack, which is available on both Sport and Sport Tech trims. It boasts new Graphite or Java Brown colors for the leather upholstery, a new dark wood veneer, dark chrome trim and a black roof lining.
“The Q50’s refined interior sets the car apart in dramatic fashion thanks to its natural elegance and the brand’s signature craftsmanship, attention to detail and premium materials. In the design, there is a clear focus on the person behind the wheel, reinforcing the driving appeal at the heart of every Infiniti,” said company design director Matt Weaver.
In terms of tech, the 2017 Q50 also comes with a new Bose Performance Series sound system with 16 speakers and all-new electronic architecture featuring high-performance components such as Bose Advanced Staging Tech, Bose Centerpoint, 2.0 surround technology, Bose AudioPilot 2.0 noise-compensation technology and Bose SurroundStage circuitry.
European markets will receive the 2017 Q50 with a new Telematic Control Unit, allowing owners to remote-control certain elements of their car (horn & light activation, car locator, stolen vehicle tracking) via Infiniti’s InTouch Services smartphone app.
The 2017 Q50 will go on sale in select markets later this year.
