When it was first launched, the Q50 introduced with it a new design language – which would later be incorporated into the rest of the brand’s vehicles – giving the car a decidedly aggressive, athletic look underscoring its on-road performance.

Emanating from the sedan’s signature “double arch” grille is a character line that flows over the front fenders and tightly around the side of the car, culminating on the rear deck lid, giving the vehicle an element of both elegance and strength.

Other characteristic design features carried into the rest of the brand’s line-up include its crescent cut c-pillar and distinctive, almost human like LED headlights and taillights.

The Q50 also introduced a number of world’s first technologies, including Direct Adaptive Steering (DAS), an innovative steer-by-wire system that allows drivers the option of customizing steering sensitivity and feel, while simultaneously helping to isolate road vibrations.

Working in conjunction with Infiniti’s own lane-keeping technology, DAS – like each of the brand’s safety and performance technologies – is designed to complement the driving experience, not replace it.
