The premium executive sedan has arrived in front of the worldwide audience of the Paris Motor Show with a raft of technology upgrades and a plethora of improvements inside and out.
The 2017 model year Infiniti Q50 has been officially presented at the 2016 Paris Motor Show, and the model gets a triumvirate of new metallic exterior colors – Midnight Black, Pure White, and Dynamic Sunstone Red, the latter in place of the current Venetian Red. The automaker claims says the red hue is the result of a new process which employs “a combination of coating machinery and manual techniques to achieve the deep, lustrous finish.” There are also red brake calipers, on point for the Q50 Red Sport 400 models, packing the 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbo engine with 400 horsepower (298 kilowatts).
Inside the changes are subtle and include a new Designer Pack, which brings Graphite or Java Brown colors for the quilted semi-aniline leather upholstery, a new open-pore dark wood veneer, dark chrome trim, and a black roof lining. The model also features the newly introduced on the Q60 Coupe Bose sound system, which is said to morph the cabin into “the driver’s very own audio haven.” European buyers will also have the choice to order the optional Telematic Control Unit system – which allows remote control via a smartphone app, including remote engine start, car locator, and stolen vehicle tracking.
