2018 Infiniti Q50 Refresh, Specs and Release Date
We have a big expectation that Infiniti the great Japanese automaker wouldn’t give up to keep the life of their luxury sedan, the Q50. They should do something such as adding some improvements to make this sedan more perfect on the future market. As you know, 2018 Infiniti Q50 especially for the predecessor is known well as a compact sedan. Its previous debut was started about more than three years ago. They sent it to the market with the nice design to replace the popular G series. This Nissan’s luxury division provided the car with amazing design in all aspects. We think that they will improve the visual design, engine performance and others but keeping everything in evolutionary changes.
Some smaller changes are possible to offer in 2018 Infiniti Q50. Well, we don’t think that giving significant changes will be great for the car. We think that most people love its previous design. When it comes to the visual design, it is still a four-door sedan with the same design cues. They don’t give any change for its shape and all details. But, they do improving such as providing some novelties starting from the rims, color options and other things around.
The cabin layout will not go with significant changes. Everything is still similar as before. It may go with new materials and smaller details but nothing special to highlight its new look. The equipment will be their concern where the company will offer the existing optional features as the standard. Besides, 2018 Infiniti Q50 will go with some new technology such as new or updated infotainment system.
2018 Infiniti Q50 Engine
For the engine, any changes are not necessary. It goes with one diesel and several petrol engines as before. It is also completed with hybrid model. If you go with petrol engines, the smallest are the engine taken from Mercedes to work for 208 hp with the displacement of 2.0 liter. It is also installed with V6 engine and 3.7 liter from Nissan to work for 300 hp. Besides, the 2018 Infiniti Q50 works with both RWD and AWD system. For the diesel, it is from Mercedes with 2.2 liter unit to generate 168 hp. The hybrid model is the last option with the combination of V6 engine and 3.5 liter as well as 67-hp of electric motor to produce 360 hp. The transmission is seven-speed automatic. Only diesel engine can give you the optional manual gearbox.
We expect that the company will release it in the second half of 2017 with the price that should be the same as before which is about $34,000 to get the base model of 2018 Infiniti Q50.
