Infiniti announces prices for Q50

Published 22 July 2013

Infiniti has announced the prices and trims for its new Q50. The four-model range is expected to hit showrooms in November and prices will start from £27,950 for the entry level 2.2-litre diesel and rise to £41,600 for the 3.5-litre V6 hybrid, with all-wheel drive.

All models feature an impressive range of standard equipment - cruise control, stop/start technology, keyless entry – as Infiniti looks to challenge the dominance of the BMW 3 Series and Audi A4. The Q50 will also feature Infiniti’s new InTouch system, with dual LCD touch screens and full smartphone connectivity.

The 2.2-litre diesel will make up the mainstay of sales and be available in three trims – SE, Premium and Sport. The entry level SE gets 17-inch alloy wheels and LED lighting, while Premium grade adds £2400 to the price, with leather-trimmed seats, automatic dimming rear view mirror and improved interior.

Sport models will start at £32,720 and combine aggressive styling with distinctive LED headlamps and larger 19-inch triple-spoke lightweight alloy wheels. Sport customers will also get electronic steer-by-wire technology, which uses jet aircraft technology to improve handling and agility - SE and Premium buyers can get the high-tech steering system as an £800 option.

The 2.2-litre diesel engine has 170PS and will cover 0-62mph in 8.5 seconds; it will also be capable of hitting a top speed of 140mph. Fuel consumption looks impressive, with official figures claiming an average of 65mpg for the six-speed manual and 60mpg for the seven-speed automatic. CO2 emissions will vary from 115g/km to 125g/km, depending on what transmission you choose.

The top of the range petrol-electric hybrid will cost £40,000 and combine a 3.5-litre V6 with an electric powertrain to produce 364PS. Top speed will be limited to 155mph, while the 0-62mph sprint will take around five seconds. The hybrid will return an average of 43mpg, while emitting 155g/km of CO2. It will also get sports brakes, suspension and regenerative braking. There'll also be an all-wheel drive version for an additional £1600.
