INFINITI Q50 SEDAN

UPDATE: Infiniti has released a gallery of new on-road images. Article updated with new photos.


January 15, 2013: Infiniti's all-new Q50 sedan, unveiled at this week's Detroit Auto Show, will go on sale in Australia in the fourth quarter of this year.

Facing off against the all-new Lexus IS and established players the 3 Series, C-Class and Audi A4, the Q50 replaces the outgoing G sedan not currently offered in Australia.

The Q50 is also the first new model to carry Infiniti's restyled Q branding, with Q60 Coupe and Convertible models set to replace the current G two-door models in the near future.

On the styling front, the Q50 adopts the curved lines previewed with the brand's recent concepts, and seen in the seven-seat JX SUV.

The Q50 evolves Infiniti's hooked lighting design, while the back-end shows long tail-lights stretching into the rear quarter panels.

The theme continues into the cabin, with the Q50 evolving the brand's current dash design, but new is a two-screen centre display.

Engine options include a revised version of Nissan's 245kW 3.7 litre V6, along with a new hybrid model that will pair a 220kW 3.5 litre V6 with a 50kW electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack. Total system output is rated at 263kW.

Both models will feature a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, along with a choice of rear- or all-wheel-drive.

Other engines will join the range later, and a four-cylinder engine, sourced from development partner Mercedes-Benz, is also reported to be planned for some markets - likely replacing the 2.5 V6 in the current G25.

The Q50 will also feature a world-first 'steer-by-wire' system, dubbed Infiniti Direct Adaptive Steering, as an option.

The system features electronically controlled actuators at the front wheels, doing away with the conventional mechanical system. Infiniti promises faster steering, and a greater range of customisation to suit driver tastes.

Watch for more details on the Q50's Australian specifications as it nears its local launch later this year.
