Direct Adaptive Steering™

It Puts the Future of Driving in Your Hands

After more than ten years of research and development, Q50’s Direct Adaptive Steering™ (DAS) is here to revolutionize how we drive. This system digitally and instantaneously transmits your steering input directly to the wheels, without a mechanical connection. Its digital processing power lets you steer quicker and smoother than you ever imagined. When you are driving on rough or uneven roads, the system is constantly, automatically making subtle adjustments to give you an increased feeling of stability, while decreasing feedback and vibration through the steering wheel.

World’s First Technology

Predictive Forward Collision Warning[*]

It Anticipates the Road Ahead

This system warns you of risks that you may not even see coming. Sensors on the front of the Q50 are constantly scanning the road ahead, monitoring both the relative speed and distance of the vehicle in front of you and the vehicle in front of that one. It sees two cars ahead. If the vehicle in front of the one you are behind brakes for any reason, the Q50 will know it before you do.

World’s First Technology

Lane Departure Prevention and Active Lane Control

It Keeps You on the Straight, and the Narrow

This system uses a camera to monitor your position within the lane you are traveling. If it senses you moving out of your lane without signaling, you are given an audible warning. If you continue in that direction, the Lane Departure Prevention System[*] will ease you back towards the center of the lane. Active Lane Control[*] can help keep you in your lane when driving during a crosswind or on an uneven roadway.

Backup Collision Intervention®

It’s Like Eyes in the Back of Your Head

When you shift into reverse, the Q50’s Backup Collision Intervention® (BCI)[*] helps detect crossing vehicles and large objects behind you, and tells you with both visual and audible alerts. If necessary, BCI goes further by automatically engaging the brakes to help you avoid a collision.

Blind Spot Intervention®[*]

It Sees What You
Might Not

This system uses sensors to help alert you if a vehicle is detected entering your blind spot area, and then it helps you avoid it. First, a warning light will illuminate. If you begin moving toward the occupied lane, an audible warning will sound. The system will even apply opposite side brakes to help guide you back toward the center of your lane.

Around View® Monitor[*]

It Gives You a Virtual Bird’s-Eye View

This system gives you exceptional awareness of your environment when you are parking. Four cameras and some cutting-edge software work together to generate a composite 360° view of your Q50 from above, showing you clearly the objects detected around your car. It helps put you intuitively in touch with your surroundings, while simultaneously putting you at ease.

Lane Departure Warning and Lane Departure Prevention[*][**]

Another industry first, Lane Departure Prevention senses unintended lane drift and automatically assists the driver to return towards the center of the lane.

Backup Collision Intervention[*]

The world's first Backup Collision Intervention (BCI) system is another significant evolution of driving confidence. Radar and sonar sensors on the side and back of the vehicle help alert the driver of a potential collision with a crossing vehicle while backing up. Should the driver continue moving on a collision course, the brakes will automatically engage.

Blind Spot Intervention® and Blind Spot Warning®[*][**]

A world's first technology helps alert the driver, when attempting to change lanes, to the presence of a detected vehicle in the blind-spot area. It also assists the driver in returning the vehicle back toward the center of the lane.

Predictive Forward Collision Warning[*]

This world's first system warns the driver of risks that maybe obscured from the driver's forward field of view. It can not only sense the relative velocity and distance of a vehicle directly ahead, but also of a vehicle travelling in front of the preceding one.

Collision may occur

Collision may occurHelps the driver recover to safer driving conditions.

Forward Emergency Braking[*]

When the Infiniti first system judges that deceleration is required, it alerts the driver using both a screen display and sound, then generates a force that pushes the accelerator pedal up and smoothly applies partial braking to assist the driver in slowing the vehicle down.


When the system judges that there is the possibility of a collision, it will automatically apply harder braking to help avoid a collision.

Collision unavoidable

PERFORMANCE

Direct Response Hybrid®

It Redefines What a Hybrid Can Be

Convention generally dictates that if you want more power and performance, you put a bigger, thirstier engine under the hood. Convention, however, is not what the Q50 is all about. Instead of going bigger, it goes smarter. Q50 finds the perfect balance of power and efficiency with a 3.5-liter V6, a lithium-ion battery, and a 50 kW electric motor. These components work together to generate 360 horsepower and up to 36 MPG on the highway. No other sedan in its class delivers this much efficiency with so much power—not even the BMW 3-series, Audi A4, or Lexus IS.

Intelligent All-Wheel Drive (AWD)

It Puts Power Where You Need It

Q50’s Intelligent All-Wheel Drive (AWD) puts power to the wheels that need it, when they need it, by instantly adapting to changing conditions. Wheelspin, throttle position, and vehicle speed are constantly monitored so the system can automatically divert up to 50% of the available power to the front wheels, enhancing traction and control in adverse conditions. When all-wheel drive is not needed, 100% of the power goes to the rear wheels for more responsive road performance.
