2016 Infiniti Q50 release date, price, changes – The Q50 is one of the newest cars Infiniti has one the market despite the fact it is not much more than an upgraded G37. The car has been released back in 2013 and since then it received numerous praises and critiques about its engines, design and even running gear. In order to solve most of the problems Infiniti is going to launch in the US as well as in the rest of the World the new Infiniti Q50 2016 at the end of this year and the car should be ready for sale by the start of 2016. Just like the model it is replacing, it will use the same platform as well as roughly the same engines, most changes being on its running gear which will receive a small upgrade.
2016 Infiniti Q50 changes
Exterior of the 2016 Q50 will slightly change with new headlights in the front as well as a slightly different design for the rims. However, the high performance version will receive a new body kit, bigger 19 inch rims with high performance tires, massive brakes as well as a new color palette just for it.
Inside the cabin of the new 2016 Infiniti Q50, Infiniti doesn’t really need to do much considering the car is already great, with good materials, a very good driving position as well as a good equipment level. The only real change is going to be a new steering rack which actually comes from the old G37, because neither of the current 2 models doesn’t offer enough feedback for a compact executive sports car.
New Infiniti Q50 2016 specs
Engine wise, the new Infiniti Q50 2016 will come as standard with a naturally aspirated 3.7 liter V6, good for 328 horsepower while the option will still be the 3.5 liter V6 hybrid with 360 horsepower. Both of them offer better than average fuel consumption and thanks to its 7 speed automatic and standard rear wheel drive system, it might just be the perfect driver’s car. The new high performance model on the other hand will receive a brand new 2.0 liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. It will also feature 7 speed dual-clutch gearbox as well as a similar all wheel drive system to the GT-R, so it should be one of the fastest cars in its class with ease.
2016 Infiniti Q50 price
The Rouge special edition model which was presented as a concept car back in 2014 might finally see the light of day as a worthy competitor for the BMW M3 and the Audi RS4. The 2016 Infiniti Q50 price will also change quite a bit despite the base model will cost roughly the same, at nearly $38,000, still higher than some of its major competitors.
