About the 2015 INFINITI Q50 Sports Sedan
The stunningly designed INFINITI Q50 takes many of its seductive styling cues from the renowned 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 standard INFINITI InTouch™ communications system includes large dual touch-screen displays (8-inch upper, 7-inch lower) and puts communication with the outside world within easy reach, with integration of hands-free phone, moving map navigation, and entertainment in a way that is safe and easy-to-use while driving*.
The Q50 also continues INFINITI’s sports sedan performance leadership, offering a choice of a refined 328-horsepower 3.7-liter V6 or Direct Response Hybrid® System with Intelligent Dual Clutch Control. The Hybrid system combines a 3.5-liter 24-valve DOHC aluminum-alloy V6 and compact laminated lithium-ion battery design with an innovative one-motor/two-clutch motor control. The system’s V6 is rated at 302 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, while the advanced 50 kW electric motor is rated at 67 horsepower and 214 lb-ft of torque. Net power is 360 horsepower, providing strong acceleration and lean fuel economy.
All 2015 Q50 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 Personal settings is also standard on all models, part of the INFINITI InTuition™ System, an advanced customizable digital environment system that allows drivers to create unique settings for engine, suspension and steering (when equipped with INFINITI Direct Adaptive Steering™) settings.
Three world’s first production performance technologies are available in the Q50 – INFINITI Direct Adaptive Steering™ technology, Active Lane Control™ and Predictive Forward Collision Warning (PFCW). The Direct Adaptive Steering™ 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™ uses a camera-based lane marker detection system to further enhance lane-keeping capability and improve vehicle straightability. The Predictive Forward Collision Warning (PFCW) system warns the driver of risks that may be obstructed from the driver's view. It not only can sense the relative velocity and distance of a vehicle directly ahead, but also of a vehicle travelling in front of the preceding one.
