The 2019 Q50 is INFINITI’s answer to veteran German sport sedans. To compete with those segment stalwarts, INFINITI's Q50 deploys an impressive array of technology, ranging from a steer-by-wire system to adaptive suspension. For the 2019 model year, INFINITI has taken the Q50's skill set to the next level.
The Q50 is a true luxury sedan, one with an impressive suite of standard equipment, including dual-zone automatic climate control, a tilt and telescopic steering column, rain-sensing wipers, Bluetooth®, and SiriusXM® satellite radio. Direct Adaptive Steering—INFINITI's steer-by-wire system—is still present (and even more responsive) on the 2019 Q50, while the ProPILOT technology suite offers Intelligent Cruise Control, Active Lane Control, Distance Control Assist, Backup Collision Intervention, Forward Emergency Braking, and more. All these impressive features, combined with its excellent driving dynamics, have helped the Q50 become INFINITI's best selling vehicle, and at an attractive price, too: the 2019 Q50 starts at $35,550.*
The Perfect Ride for…
Drivers who want the speed and power of a muscle car with the design and comfort of a luxury vehicle. The 2019 INFINITI Q50 offers the perfect middle ground between the two, boasting an array of tech and entertainment features that will keep drivers connected and entertained, as well as offering a variety of powertrain options and the sleek handling of a sports car. The driver-focused Q50 has all of the technology and features you want, in addition to the power you crave.
Drive & Handling
The new Q50 offers drivers three different engine choices. The two standard engines are a 2.0-liter I4 turbocharged engine that produces 208 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque or a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 that produces 300 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. If that doesn't cut it, you can opt for the stunning Q50 Red Sport 400 trim level, which includes a 400 hp, 350 lb-ft of torque iteration of the twin-turbocharged V6 engine. The 2019 Q50 also comes with both rear-wheel and all-wheel drive, so it's suitable for all of your driving needs.
The EPA rates the 300-hp version of the Q50 at 23 mpg combined (20 mpg city, 29 mpg highway) when equipped with rear-wheel drive, and 22 mpg combined (19 mpg city, 27 mpg highway) with all-wheel drive.** The 2.0-liter engine is estimated at 25 mpg combined (23 mpg city, 30 mpg highway) with rear-wheel drive, and 24 mpg combined (22 mpg city, 28 mpg highway) with all-wheel drive.** The more powerful 400-hp V6 returns 20 mph city and 26 mph highway.**
In addition to its sophisticated powertrain options, the Q50 also features INFINITI’s Direct Adaptive Steering system, a steer-by-wire system that eliminates the mechanical connection between the steering wheel and the front wheels. Making the Dynamic Digital Suspension system even more attractive, it actively adjusts the shock absorbers to control body motion while cornering.
Available on select models, this exclusive package includes features such as Intelligent Cruise Control with Full Speed Range, Blind Spot intervention, Active Lane Control, and several other safety oriented features that help you, as the name implies, remain proactive in preventing accidents to stay safe on the road.
This standard feature is a fully customizable digital environment for navigation, audio, climate control, feature displays, and IT functions. Your personalized information is stored within the INFINITI Intelligent Key, allowing multiple drivers of the same car to have their ideal settings available upon entry into the vehicle. Seating position, favorite drive mode, climate settings, and preferred route home are all options that can be saved.
In the market for something larger? The INFINITI QX80 is a great option if you want an SUV with maximum size and space. This sleek vehicle offers plenty of legroom with the performance and design you crave. The INFINITI QX30, on the other hand, is a great option if you're looking for something a bit more compact. From its capable engine to its top-notch aerodynamics, it screams "sporty power."
