Model Highlights

INFINITI has reinvented its popular G37 sports sedan for 2014, and the new model -- the Q50 -- ticks all the right boxes for those looking for a classy, intelligent, athletic sports sedan.

The new car boasts a sleek exterior of flowing lines based upon the Essence concept car INFINITI debuted four years ago to celebrate its 20th anniversary. Underneath, the Q50 retains much of the outgoing G37's running gear, including the smooth 3.7L V6, which features continuously variable valve timing. Output is a potent 328 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and 269 ft-lb of torque. The Q50 Hybrid benefits from a 3.5L V6 with INFINITI Direct Response, which combines the gasoline engine with a lithium-ion battery and 50 kW electric motor. The result is 354 horsepower at 6,500. Both engines are mated to an electronically controlled 7-speed automatic transmission with Adaptive Shift Control, which senses driving style and adjusts shifting accordingly. The gearbox also allows for manual shifting and Downshift Rev Matching. The Q50 is available with either rear-wheel or all-wheel drive, though the base trim only offers rear-wheel drive.

The Q50 comes in three flavors -- Base, Premium, and Sport -- while the Hybrid is available in Premium and Sport only. Standard on the Base car are 17-inch alloy wheels with run-flat performance tires, speed-sensitive power steering, auto on/off LED headlights with LED fog lights, zero-lift front and rear aerodynamics, and remote-open windows. Inside you'll find creature comforts such as dual zone automatic climate control, one-touch up/down windows all around, aluminum appointments, 8-way power driver and passenger seats, a 6-speaker audio system with twin USB ports and steering wheel-mounted controls, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, and dual INFINITI InTouch LCD displays.

Q50 Premium models add pleasantries like a power tinted moonroof with one-touch open/close functionality, heated front seats, an auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink, and a 14-speaker INFINITI Studio on Wheels Bose audio system. Finally, Q50 Sport models include 19-inch alloy wheels with ventilated aluminum sport disc brakes and a sport-tuned suspension, leather front seats with improved bolstering and 10-way power adjustability on the driver's side, and magnesium paddle shifters. Both Q50 Hybrid models add regenerative braking, which captures energy normally lost during braking and uses it to help recharge the lithium-ion battery.

A number of packages are available on Premium and Sport models. The Leather Package adds leather seating front and rear, with driver's seat 2-way power lumbar, while the Deluxe Touring Package includes maple wood trim, 60/40 split-fold rear seat, rain-sensing wipers, and Direct Adaptive Steering, which allows independent control of wheel angle and steering based upon driving conditions. Two technology packages add auto-leveling adaptive headlights, a blind spot warning and intervention system, intelligent cruise control to help reduce the chances of a rear collision and a lane departure warning system.


Model News

The INFINITI Q50 is an all-new sports sedan for 2014, replacing the popular G-series. The Q50 blends luxury with performance in a shapely package powered by a 328-hp 3.7L V6, mated to a 7-speed automatic. While the engine carries over from the G37, the exterior of the Q50 is a new and attractive mix of sleek, flowing lines and powerful-looking bulges. As is the case with every INFINITI model, the Q50 is loaded with cutting-edge technology, both inside the cabin and in the pieces that make it go, stop, and corner. A Q50 Hybrid produces an impressive 354 hp from its 3.5L V6 with INFINITI Direct Response Hybrid technology and lithium-ion battery.

Both models are available with either rear-wheel or all-wheel drive, and with the Q50 INFINITI introduces the new Direct Adaptive Steering, which allows independent control of wheel angle and steering based upon driving conditions. Also new is Active Lane Control, which utilizes a rearview mirror-mounted camera that reads lane markings and helps the system adapt to changing road surfaces with small steering corrections. Interiors are laden with leather and other top-quality soft-touch materials, and two new touchscreens control audio and climate controls, in place of the previous knob/button system.

Pricing for the 2014 INFINITI Q50 starts at $36,450.


Value Writeup

The 2014 INFINITI Q50 is a stylish, sophisticated, high-performance sports sedan, with European competitors squarely in its sights. Even in the base trim, the Q50 offers a host of luxury and technology features that are hard to beat, and its 328 horsepower easily trumps output from the top-tier models from BMW and Audi, all with a slimmer MSRP as well.

Summary
Nissan North America, Inc.'s (Nissan) is recalling certain model year 2014 INFINITI Q50 vehicles equipped with Direct Adaptive Steering. The affected vehicles received a power steering software version that, should the engine compartment reach freezing temperatures, the power steering software may disable the electric steering system and also may delay the engagement of the mechanical steering backup system.

Consequence
The disablement of the steering systems could result in a loss of steering, increasing the risk of a crash.

Nissan notified owners and arranged to have vehicles towed to the nearest INFINITI retailer. Customers were instructed not to drive their vehicles until they were repaired. INFINITI retailers provided affected customers with loaner vehicles, while the software update remedy was applied. These services were provided at no cost to the customer. Owners may contact INFINITI at 1-800-662-6200.

Summary
Nissan North America, Inc. (Nissan) is recalling certain model year 2013-2014 INFINITI M35 hybrid vehicles manufactured April 7, 2012, to September 9, 2013, 2014 INFINITI Q50 hybrid vehicles manufactured December 10, 2012, to July 15, 2014, and 2014-2015 INFINITI Q70 hybrid vehicles manufactured April 9, 2010, to May 7, 2014. Due to a software error, In the affected vehicles, if the signal is lost from one of the two throttle position sensors (TPS), the engine control module (ECM) will go into a fail-safe mode, partially closing the throttle chamber. Should the lost signal be restored, the throttle chamber may open, regardless of the position signal from the TPS.

Consequence
The vehicle may gradually accelerate due to the throttle chamber reopening. This unexpected acceleration may increase the risk of a crash.

Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the ECM, free of charge. The recall began on November 10, 2014. Owners may contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-647-7261.

In these vehicles, the front seat passenger Occupant Classification System (OCS) may incorrectly classify an adult passenger as a child or classify the seat as empty despite it being occupied. As a result, the passenger frontal air bag may be turned off and not deploy in the event of a crash.

Consequence
If the passenger frontal air bag does not deploy as intended in the event of a crash, the passenger is at an increased risk of injury.

Nissan will notify their owners. Chevrolet City Express owners will be notified by General Motors. Dealers will reprogram the Air Bag Control Unit (ACU) and OCS Electronic Control Unit (ECU) in Altima, Maxima, Murano, Rogue, and Sentra vehicles, and replace the OCS ECU in LEAF, NV200, NV200 Taxi, Pathfinder, INFINITI Q50, JX35, and QX60 and Chevrolet City Express vehicles, free of charge.

Summary
Nissan North America, Inc. (Nissan) is recalling certain model year 2013-2014 Altima, LEAF, Pathfinder, and Sentra, model year 2013 NV200 (aka Taxi) and INFINITI JX35 and model year 2014 INFINITI Q50 and QX60 vehicles. In the affected vehicles, the occupant classification system (OCS) software may incorrectly classify the passenger seat as empty, when it is occupied by an adult.

Consequence
If the OCS does not detect an adult occupant in the passenger seat, the passenger airbag would be deactivated. Failure of the passenger airbag to deploy during a crash (where deployment is warranted) could increase the risk of injury to the passenger.

Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will update the OCS software, free of charge. The recall began on April 14, 2014. Owners may contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261.
