3.5-LITRE V6 ENGINE WITH INFINITI DIRECT RESPONSE HYBRID®
Engineered to deliver the performance of a premium V8 with the fuel economy of a 4-cylinder, the Infiniti Direct Response Hybrid challenges conventional wisdom to become a true driver’s powertrain. One that transitions from all-electric mode to full-power hybrid mode with an intensity and organic response that defies everything you think about hybrids.
2.0-LITRE TURBOCHARGED PETROL
Honed for eager response and quick acceleration when you want it, the turbo spools quickly to produce 155 kW at 5,500 rpm. It also outputs a stirring 350 Nm of torque starting at just 1,500 rpm while reaching 7.3 l/100km combined fuel consumption.
The all-new 3.0-litre V6 twin-turbo engine from the new and exclusive ‘VR’ powertrain family has been developed to deliver optimal power and torque alongside greater fuel efficiency.
The high-output version of the power unit delivers 298 kW at 6,400 rpm and 475 Nm maximum torque at 1,600 - 5,200 rpm; while the 224 kW version at 6,400 rpm produces 400 Nm torque at 1,600 – 5,200 rpm.
An advanced new twin-turbo system contributes to the smooth and immediate power delivery while aiding efficiency. The combination of a new turbine speed sensor and an optimised turbine blade design realise greater performance with more immediate response.
You sense. Hear. See. You are whole and inspired to move boldly, without any boundaries. Our actions are the ultimate expression of who we really are.
FIRST DIGITALLY PRECISE STEERING
Direct Adaptive Steering is a world's first digitally enhanced steering connection that allows for an unprecedented level of handling customisability while filtering out unwanted vibration. Steering feels faster and smoother.
Dual Flow Path® shock absorbers adjust damping forces based on road conditions to maintain the perfect ride and precise response to suit all your moments behind the wheel.
STOP MORE POWERFULLY
Performance is more than speed, which is why the Q50 employs opposed-piston brake calipers. They apply stopping force from both sides of the rotor at the same time for better bite, more friction and direct feel.
Downshift Rev Matching blips the throttle to ready the engine for a lower gear. It gives you the precision of expert performance driving by delivering smoother, quicker downshifts for increased stability.
CONTROL WITHOUT COMPROMISE
Intelligent All-Wheel Drive infinitely adjusts for better traction by sending up to 50% of the power to the front wheels when you need it, and 100% to the rear wheels for more dynamic handling when you don't.
