The upcoming 2020 Infiniti Q50 brings us some exciting news. This luxury sedan will suffer a couple of upgrades and some of them will please the customers for sure. For the start, the exterior will get minor tweaks only. However, under the skin, new Q50 will deploy an all-wheel-drive setup that will be standard. That also means the electrified platform will arrive as well. From the inside, Infiniti will offer an all-new infotainment system.
The 2020 Infiniti Q50 will still use a proven V6 drivetrain. The exterior looks sporty and the luxury interior is on another level. The price is still affordable and this sedan will hit all of the markets around the globe. If you want more sportiness, Infiniti offers a Red Sport 400 variant that also delivers more power.
2020 Infiniti Q50 exterior changes
Infiniti’s new sedan will arrive with minimal changes. There won’t be any type of redesign as some speculations are claiming. The only notable upgrade will happen up front where the Q50 will get an all-new grille. This grille looks sharper and rounder than the current one.
The headlights stay intact, along with the aggressive bumper and large air intakes. To the sides, 17-inch wheels are standard but you can opt for the 18 or 19-inch rollers too. If you opt for the Red Sport 400 variant you will get even sportier cues, unique styling, and more standard features.
2020 Infiniti Q50 interior features premium materials
The Q50 sedan comes with the great interior design. Luxurious cabin adds the latest technology features and heavy use of premium materials. Generally, the design and the layout will remain, however, some significant changes are about to happen. The 2020 Infiniti Q50 will get an all-new infotainment system. The rest of the company’s vehicles will also get an all-new version.
It is Infiniti’s plan for the future which includes a new system and bigger displays. A dual-touchscreen configuration will remain, but from now on, the infotainment system will support Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. On top of that, the use of the audio system and navigation will be easier than ever before.
2020 Infiniti Q50 turbocharged engine will make 300 horsepower
Under the hood, the 2020 Infiniti Q50 will keep its 2.0-liter engine. This turbocharged unit with four cylinders delivers 208 horses and 258 lb-ft of torque. Moreover, a 3.0-liter V6 will be optional drivetrain and it will produce 300 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. However, one significant upgrade is awaiting the rest of the lineup, which includes Q50, Q60, and Q70 models.
An all-wheel-drive setup will be standard from now on. With that in mind, the possible outcome is the all-new electrified platform. That means the hybrid drivetrain will be in the offer as well. Specs of the hybrid variant are not available yet but we believe Infiniti will use a Nissan’s e-power technology.
2020 Infiniti Q50 price and release date
The forthcoming 2020 Infiniti Q50 will most likely arrive later in 2019, probably in the last quarter. This luxury sedan will cost $37,000 or slightly more. Have in mind the latest significant updates. A hybrid version could cost up to $50,000, just like the Red Sport 400 variant.
