The all-new 2019 Infiniti Q50 presents a luxurious sedan with very modern features, both inside and outside. Sporty exterior design and tech-rich exterior are available for affordable price. Powered by an efficient V6 drivetrain, Infiniti Q50 offers great handling and superb driving manners.
The 2019 Infiniti Q50 will arrive with slight exterior changes and some optional interior amenities are standard now. The price will be slightly higher but still in range with other competitors. While this sedan takes a sporty stance, you can buy a Red Sport 400 model that is even sportier, it adds more power and further aggressive styling.
2019 Infiniti Q50 exterior refreshments
The exterior of the upcoming 2019 Infiniti Q50 will get a minor exterior upgrade. The changes are happening up front, where we can see more rounded grille and sharper hood lines. The similar design has been seen on the Q40 model.
The headlamps will stay intact and the bumper looks bold as before. To the side, Q50 still rides on 17-inch wheels as standard and optional 19-inch wheels. The rear sports the same styling cues as the last year’s model so there will be no refreshments.
Hot model Red Sport 400 holds sportier styling cues, it adds more uniqueness and aggressiveness. Things like hood scoops and rear spoiler will be all standard. The base model looks brilliant, but if you want more luxury, opt for higher trims.
2019 Infiniti Q50 interior is premium
The base model of the 2019 Infiniti Q50 is entry-level of luxury. The cabin looks upscale and the materials from the inside are premium. Plenty of soft-touch surfaces are in the offer, especially around the dashboard.
The layout of the controls is more than good and the new model will get a cup, holders. However, the biggest interior changes are the upgrade of infotainment system and a couple of optional features that are standard now.
Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are finally in the offer and they are optional. The gauge cluster comes with a sportier theme and the rear legroom is among the best-in-class.
2019 Infiniti Q50 engine and transmission
This sedan comes with a standard and optional engine, and Red Sport 400 model will use a re-tuned version of the optional unit. The standard engine is still a 2.0-liter turbocharged unit that returns 210 HP and 260 lb-ft of torque. The optional drivetrain is a 3.0-liter V6. While the regular model gets up to 300 HP and 295 lb-ft of torque, Red Sport 400 model will get almost 400 horses.
We highly recommend optional V6 that comes with better efficiency and more power. Both units will benefit from the rear-wheel-drive configuration, while the all-wheel-drive system is available as an option. Moreover, a 7-speed automatic transmission is the only gearbox option.
There is no official confirmation about the hybrid model. However, some sources are saying that this variant will arrive in a two-year time.
