Infiniti Shows Off Upcoming Q50′s Headlight (That’s the New G to the Rest of Us) [2013 Detroit Auto Show]
Hey, so, remember how Infiniti decided to change all of its car names to Q followed by two numbers and its SUVs to QX followed by two numbers? Of course you do, because it was a highly unconventional—one might say “crazysauce”—move. Well, allow us to present the first physical piece attached to one of those names: the Q50′s headlight, which debuted via a video released today. The Q50 is the G37′s replacement for those not yet versed in Infiniti’s new naming scheme, and it will make its debut at the 2013 Detroit auto show.
- Instrumented Test: 2013 Infiniti JX35 AWD
- Comparison Test: Infiniti G25 vs. BMW 328i, Audi A4, Mercedes-Benz C250, Volvo S60
- Long-Term Test: 2011 Infiniti M56S
The Q50 sedan will go on sale later next year as a 2014 model. Coupe and convertible variants (called Q60, duh!) will follow later. As the video below illustrates, the Q50 will adopt Infiniti’s latest styling language; the headlight design looks almost identical to that seen on the JX—sorry, QX60—crossover. We’ll bring you more on the
new G Q50 when the sheet is pulled off in Motown.
