The Japanese luxury manufacturer has recently announced the pricing details for the 2016 Q50, which is going to be sold from $33,950 at dealerships across the United States.
Already on sale, the base model is the Q50 2.0t which packs under the hood a new turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine churning out 208 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. It has been mated to a seven-speed auto gearbox that can be optionally fitted with an all-wheel drive system if the owner shells out another $2,000. Aside from packing the new engine, the entry-level version is fitted as standard with LED headlights and 17-inch alloy wheels, eight-way power front seats, aluminum trim, and a six-speaker audio system. Other amenities worth mentioning include leatherette upholstery, a dual-zone climate control system, and an Infiniti InTouch infotainment system.
If you go for the Q50 2.0t Premium, starting from $37,650 the buyer will be granted a wide array of features such as heated steering wheel, power moonroof, HomeLink universal transceiver and a14-speaker Bose audio system. There’s also the option for the greener Q50 Hybrid Premium which goes for $47,050 – and you get the hybridized powertrain using a 3.5-liter V6 engine, an electric motor, and a compact lithium-ion battery for a total combined output of 360 hp. The only downside is the hybrid version comes packing forward wheel drive instead of the Q50 2.0t’s RWD assembly – though that can be amended by selecting the optional ($2,000) all-wheel drive.
