The 2016 Infiniti Q50 will be compact sedan from luxury class. It is going to be refreshed for 2016, since it was launched for the first time as 2014 year model. This is another vehicle from Q-class, that replaced G vehicles from Infiniti. First years were very successful, but company is looking for the first major modification after 2016 Q50. For this one, cosmetic changes are likely to happen, while other, including powertrain could be left for later launches.
2016 Infiniti Q50 redesign
Infinity Essence is a platform that should be used for building 2016 Infiniti Q50. It was presented in 2009, and ever since it was used many times. However, this concept evaluated and it is not the same one that was used in 2009. The 2016 Q50 will have many changes, but most of them will be minor and esthetic. Crescent-cut C-pillar became some kind of a trade mark for Q50, so it will be used again. Three-dimensional double-arch grille will make appearance again, but revisited. Also, bumpers and both head- and tail-lights get some refreshment.
2016 Infiniti Q50 engine
It is still unsure what could be found under the hood of the 2016 Infiniti Q50. This sedan could be powered from few options and it is still unknown and unpredictable which is the most likely to take position. Company spokesmen don’t give any information about it. However, some expert thought, rumors and leaked reports are telling that 3.7- V6, standard for new Nissan models could be installed as main option. Also, diesel engine could be brought to 2016 lineup of Q50. Then, 2.2-l turbocharged four-cylinder and 3.5-l V6 are mentioned, with different values on output, form modest 200 hp to over 300 hp from V6. Also, 2.2-l drivetrain could come paired with electric motor. One thing is sure, and it is 7-speed automatic gearbox, that will certainly send power to either rear or all wheels.
2016 Infiniti Q50 price
The updated sedan could keep its price if most of the features are going to be carried over. That means we could purchase 2016 Infiniti Q50 just under $40.000. However, higher trims, which are likely to be offered, are going over this mark, especially if hybrid is going to be launched again. For this type of vehicle, $50.000 is more likely to be hanging on the price tag.
