The Infiniti Q50 is an all-new sports sedan for 2014, replacing the popular G-series. The Q50 blends luxury with performance in a shapely package powered by a 328-hp 3.7L V6, mated to a 7-speed automatic. While the engine carries over from the G37, the exterior of the Q50 is a new and attractive mix of sleek, flowing lines and powerful-looking bulges. As is the case with every Infiniti model, the Q50 is loaded with cutting-edge technology, both inside the cabin and in the pieces that make it go, stop, and corner. A Q50 Hybrid produces an impressive 354 hp from its 3.5L V6 with Infiniti Direct Response Hybrid technology and lithium-ion battery. Both models are available with either rear-wheel or all-wheel drive, and with the Q50 Infiniti introduces the new Direct Adaptive Steering, which allows independent control of wheel angle and steering based upon driving conditions. Also new is Active Lane Control, which utilizes a rearview mirror-mounted camera that reads lane markings and helps the system adapt to changing road surfaces with small steering corrections. Interiors are laden with leather and other top-quality soft-touch materials, and two new touchscreens control audio and climate controls, in place of the previous knob/button system. Pricing for the 2014 Infiniti Q50 starts at $36,450.
