Of all the vehicles that we sell here at INFINITI of Thousand Oaks, none are more popular with customers than the INFINITI Q50, our lauded entry-level luxury sport sedan. Since its debut back in 2014, it has been the brand’s best-selling model, and it certainly looks as if the 2018 model year version of the car will be among the jewels of your INFINITI dealer in Los Angeles, CA this fall. In just the last five years, engineers have expanded the vehicle to include more engines, more horsepower and more luxury, but the newest iteration is the best version yet thanks to some aesthetic upgrades, updated trim packages and improved drive quality.
For starters, INFINITI has put significant work into reordering and renaming the trims for the INFINITI Q50 model line. What once was known as the “Base” trim now goes by “Pure,” while the former “Premium” trim now is called “Luxe.” Meanwhile, “Sport” keeps its old moniker, but for 2018 the automaker has added an optional Performance package for the INFINITI Q50 Sport that features sportier brakes, firmer suspension and a tighter steering ratio, all of which are excellent additions for those that like to eke a little extra enjoyment out of their luxury sports sedans.
In terms of aesthetics, the 2018 INFINITI Q50 has received a handful of upgrades that prove the devil really is in the details. The version of the vehicle you will see this fall at your INFINITI dealer in Los Angeles will boast a reshaped bumper with a new grille. Also, there now are different fascias for the more luxurious Pure and Luxe trims and a more angular fascia for the Sport trim. Some models also get new 18-inch or 19-inch wheels, while the steering wheel in all INFINITI Q50 vehicles has been updated to improve feel and looks for drivers in Thousand Oaks, CA.
As for drive quality, the 2018 INFINITI Q50 continues to show why it is one of the most beloved vehicles at your INFINITI dealer in Los Angeles. There are six different driving models available, including standard options like Eco, Standard and Sport, but there also is a mode for Snow, a customizable Personal mode and a Sport+ mode that boasts a steering ratio that is 12 percent quicker than the standard driving mode at 60 mph. These features combined with efficient yet powerful engine options make the vehicle incredibly fun to own and drive.
