New Infiniti Q50 pricing and grades revealed

Fleet news logo

Infiniti has announced that prices for its new performance saloon, the Q50, will start at £27,950 for the 2.2-litre diesel SE.

The SE comes with a high level of standard equipment including 17-inch alloy wheels, run-flat tyres, cruise control, speed limiter, stop start, hill start assist, rear view camera, rain sensing wipers and keyless entry.

Safety systems include vehicle dynamic control, including active trace and traction control, tyre pressure warning and brake assist.

LED lighting is used in the rear light units, the front fog lights and the turn indicators integrated into the door mirrors which are also heated and colour coded.

Scratch-shield paint is used to ensure unwanted minor scratches simply disappear, while chrome-trimmed twin exhaust pipes and halogen daytime running lights enhance the car’s sporting presence.

On the inside the two front compartments are separated by a distinctive design line that runs through the centre console.

The dashboard features Infiniti’s all-new InTouch system with its dual LCD VGA touch screens along with a fully customisable digital environment.

Audio is provided by a six-speaker system featuring a single CD player, Bluetooth streaming, USB/iPod connectivity and voice-operated control.

An advanced Bose system with DAB radio can also be specified.

The dual-zone adaptive climate control system features auto recirculation for when the outside air may not be quite so clean and a grape polyphenol filter to purify the air that does get through.

The rear seats feature a 60/40 split and a ski hatch (not on Hybrid) to allow for any additional storage capacity requirements.

A multi-function leather-bound steering wheel and  front aluminium door sill protectors are included.

Premium grade

Moving up a step is the Premium grade which adds £2,400 to the price of the Q50 2.2-litre diesel SE, for a total of £30,350.

The additional cost provides leather-trimmed seats, available in three colour choices: Graphite, Stone or Wheat.

Both front seats also come with heated backrests and cushions.

An automatic dimming rear view mirror is also included.

Premium grade comes with a choice of interior trim ranging from the technical look of Kacchu aluminium to the more luxury appeal of Maplewood.

Sport grade

Starting at £32,720 (plus £2,370 over the Premium) the Sport grade adds a more aggressive look with a different design to the front bumper section.

Further differentiating the Sport model from SE and Premium Q50s are distinctive LED headlamps, LED daytime running lights and larger 19-inch triple-spoke lightweight alloy wheels, also with run-flat tyres.

Inside, the technical Kacchu aluminium trim is used with the choice of either Graphite or Stone coloured leather.

The front power-operated seats incorporate a more sporty design with a firmer hold and a memory function.

The driver’s seat also benefits from additional and powered lumbar support and the inclusion of power-adjusted reach and rake for the steering column.

Sports grade also receives a world’s first on a production car with the inclusion of Direct Adaptive Steering (DAS), ‘steer by wire’ technology that has only previously been seen on the latest jet planes.

DAS provides the driver with the ability to adjust both the steering’s response and weight to suit personal preferences and type of driving.

Integral with DAS is the  Active Lane Control which reduces the amount of driver adjustments needed to stay in the chosen lane on motorways. 


The performance Hybrid Q50 is fitted with a 3.5-litre V6 engine capable of delivering 0-62mph acceleration in 5.1 seconds.

Sports suspension, regenerative braking and sports brakes are all standard.

To warn pedestrians when the car is moving at slow speeds whilst in full electric mode, an external noise system is fitted.

The all-new Infiniti Q50 can be personalised with a wide range of options that include a sunroof, 18-inch alloy wheels and Infiniti’s navigation system. However, to simplify matters there are also five different option packs:

Multimedia pack - £2,760: Navigation system, Advanced Bose audio with 14 speakers and DAB radio with a roof mounted shark fin aerial.

Welcome Pack (Standard on Sport) - £1,200: Tyre pressure monitoring with individual display, power and heated door mirrors with folding and reversing synchronisation, intelligent key with smart access and advanced features, welcome lighting, powered adjustment for rake and reach on the steering column, powered front seat adjustment with memory and powered lumbar support for the driver.

Visibility pack - £1,040: Adaptive front lighting, smart beam to help prevent high beam blindness to oncoming traffic and around view monitor for clear and safe parking

Steering Pack (Standard on Sport) - £800: Direct Adaptive Steering and Active Lane control to give a more customised and precise feel to the steering while maintaining a more central path within a lane without the need for minor steering adjustments.

Safety Shield Pack - £2,080: Intelligent cruise control, lane departure warning and lane departure prevention, blind spot warning and blind spot intervention, forward emergency braking, predictive forward collision warning and automatics also get distance control assist and back up collision intervention.  

Many of the above options can also be added as separate items if full the pack is not required.

Finishing off the look of the Q50 are eight exterior paint finishes to choose from – Obsidian Black, Moonlight White, Liquid Platinum, Graphite Shadow, Hagane Blue, Chestnut Bronze, Venetian Ruby and Malbec Black. Metallic paint option is priced at £660.
