Infiniti is the leading luxury car brand, and the new Infiniti Q50 S is a tiny, lightweight executive saloon designed to battle highly-regarded, high-class European luxury rear-drive cars such as the BMW 3 Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class and Toyota Celica. It is an absolute replacement for the hugely popular, well-loved, well-received, but ill-fated Nissan G37, which failed to sell very well in the UK mainly because of its prohibitive price, thirsty engines and poor quality.
The Q50 S is much smaller than the Q50 and weighs only 2.3 tonnes. It also has a more powerful engine, a larger boot and is lighter overall thanks to a shorter wheelbase. It also uses the same architecture, making it easy to integrate the infotainment system into an existing vehicle – as long as it has a modern dashboard, an air-conditioned cabin and stereo speakers.
The Q50 S features two doors on the right hand side and a hatch on the left, so it can be easily modified to suit many different car owners' needs. Many owners have installed Infiniti's “Drive Selection” system, which allows users to switch between the three available drive modes – Sports, Tour and Off Road – with the touch of a button. Other functions on this version of the Q50 include a navigation system, audio system, CD player, USB interface, DVD burner and a remote control unit. Of these, the navigation system is the most essential, because it enables you to steer the Q50 S in any direction you want to.
The Q50 S comes with a five-speed automatic transmission and a manual transmission is optional. You get a choice between a wet and dry clutch in the automatic transmission, as well as a brake system. The steering rack is made from aluminium, but you can also opt for steel or rubber. As far as the brakes go kitted into the car are concerned, they can be either vented or non-vented and come with a full service and warranty.
The roof of the Q50 S is very similar to that of the standard car, so you will find the same type of sunroof, but there are a few additional touches that make the Q50 S extra special. The “Driver Assistance” system allows you to choose from a series of buttons to open and close your car when you are out and about, turn your head lights on or off and even let you know if you are parking your car in a space. When you use the “Off” button, you can also lock the steering wheel, and you get a button for the “Chase” mode.
There are various safety levels available, ranging from the “Normal” to the “Sport” one, which enables you to adjust various aspects of your car's handling, braking, suspension and stability to suit you. “Sport” levels also allow you to control the “Driving Assistance” system, which keeps track of the vehicle's speed, steering, acceleration and braking and offers you various “emergency” services, such as changing gears or steering. The “Sport” mode also enables you to lock the parking brake.
The suspension system on the Q50 S is made from the same technology used in the G37, and there is also a strut-type system. This enables the car to absorb shocks without you having to manually do it.
The Q50 S comes with a four-speaker sound system, as well as CD, DVD, MP3 and GPS options. You can also choose to get an optional audio system, including Bluetooth, satellite radio, AM/FM tuner and an eight-speaker stereo. You will find a glove box which has two cup holders, as well as an adjustable headrest, all of which are designed to be used whilst driving.
