The Infiniti Q50 has been previewed for the first time ahead of the all-new premium mid-sized sedan’s unveiling at the Detroit motor show on January 14.
The Q50’s headlight assemblies feature tubes of LED daytime running lights reminiscent of eyebrows above adaptive xenon lamps and crystal-look crescent-shaped parking lights.
The Infiniti Q50 becomes the first model to adopt the Japanese luxury brand’s new Q/QX naming structure, with the fresh moniker superseding the old Infiniti G nameplate.
Earlier spy images have confirmed the Infiniti Q50 will take a generational leap forward from the outgoing G sedan from a design perspective, boasting a more prominent and upright front grille, bold bonnet and panel contours, and a more heavily raked rear window for a sportier, coupe-inspired appearance.
As CarAdvice reported in September, the rear-wheel drive Infiniti Q50 is set to be offered with three Mercedes-Benz-sourced engines – a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol, a four-cylinder diesel and a 3.0-litre V6 diesel – as well as an upgraded version of the Infiniti’s 3.7-litre petrol V6.
