Infiniti Canada Spruces Up Q50 And Q60 Red Sport With I-Line Editions

Infiniti has released a Canada-exclusive special edition for its hottest models, the Q50 Red Sport sedan and Q60 Red Sport Coupe.

It’s called the “I-Line,” which stands for “Inspired Line,” and it has just debuted at the Montreal Auto Show. Offered solely in Canada, this special edition features mostly cosmetic upgrades aimed at enhancing the sporty character of the two Red Sport models.

Both I-Line versions get a blacked out Infiniti Sport Grille, custom glossy black alloys in 19 inches for the Q50 sedan and 20 inches for the Q60 coupe, a carbon fiber rear deck lid spoiler and a unique I-Line badge. Interestingly, the styling updates look quite similar to those applied by Larte Design to the Infiniti Q60.

“We are delighted to showcase the I-Line editions which have been created with a vision to be further developed into an Infiniti Canada sub-brand,” said Adam Paterson, managing director of Infiniti Canada, hinting that the Japanese luxury brand might bring even more special editions to the country.

Since they are based on the Red Sport versions of the Infiniti Q50 and Q60, these variants are powered by a same twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 that delivers 400 hp (406 PS) at 6,400 rpm and 350 lb-ft (474 Nm) of torque at 1,600-5,200 rpm. Mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission that drives all four wheels (AWD is standard in Canada), the V6 engine allows for a 0-60 mph (96 km/h) sprint of under 5 seconds.

The Q50 Red Sport I-Line and Q60 Red Sport I-Line will arrive in Canadian dealerships in February 2019 and will be priced from C$56,195 and C$65,295, respectively.

    Not a big Infiniti fan, but they Q60 is pretty sexy! Especially in that red. Q50 did not age well imo.

  • ODD HOW THEY BLOCKED OUT ONLY SOME OF THE TRIM.

    Now it looks like a Mazda that doesn’t look right. At least Mazda’s look premium but these fail to do so. Strange world we live in. I know design is subjective but I think Infiti’s look strange.

    • Bash

      I’m not a fan of Infinity, but to say it looks like a Mazda, that is a whole different level I wouldn’t even think to reach. lol

      • Adam

        Lol! I just think the grille and headlights look similar. The rest looks like an awkwardly styled Mazda6. Again, design is subjective so what I see is not generally what others see, so I get your point lol!

  • Keith Schwerin

    The black grill and rear lip are already available from infiniti parts. Have been for years.

    I Line?
    No.
    Pointless.

    That black grill looks awful. That said… the last Infiniti that I was even remotely interested in was the 1st generation Q45. But when I found out that I couldn’t fit into because of a lack of headroom – I lost all interest in all Infiniti products.

      To be fair, with that forehead (in your avatar), you really need an open top! 😉

      • Craig

        And I keep my hair on top really short too. But it doesn’t help much!

    These cars need 400hp to lug that bloated and overweight thing along.

    WHY?

    Pretty car in search of a proper transmission…
