Visually, the Q50 now features a revised grille, and reworked tail-light graphics. Both the Sport and Red Sport 400 grades also receive more aggressive bumper designs.
There are other additions to the range-topping Red Sport 400 model, including a more obvious rear diffuser-style element, black wing mirrors, and more prominent twin exhaust tips.
Upgrades to the interior include double-stitched faux leather coverings around the instrument panel, a new steering wheel, new chrome trim pieces, and a new transmission shifter.
For the Red Sport 400, there's now red stitching throughout the interior, dark chrome trim, and diamond quilted leather seats.
The updated Q50 now bundles its safety technologies under the ProPilot banner, and includes steer-by-wire, active lane keeping assistance, active blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, and automated emergency braking systems.
Although the ProPilot brand is primarily used by Nissan for its self-driving technology, the Q50 isn't yet available with the first-generation setup available in the Japan-only Serena people mover and facelifted Qashqai, which can autonomously steer, accelerate and brake within a single highway lane.
Also rebranded are the Q50's trim levels. Gone are the GT and Premium tags, replaced with a structure that starts with the Pure, Luxe and Sport grades, and ends with the Red Sport 400.
The revised Infiniti Q50 will begin its global roll out during the second quarter of 2017, with an Australian launch to occur later in the second half of the year.
