Default 2020 Q50 Update?

Hello all,


I previously leased a 2018 Red Sport but unfortunately was totaled. I have gathered all possible options for my future car but the Q50 still comes to #1 spot not only for the power and looks, but mainly the aggressive leases Infiniti can offer.


My question is, will the infotainment system be upgraded in 2020? I tried searching but found nothing. I'm ok with keeping everything else the way it is but that for me is the weakest link.

2018 Q50 RS 400 AWD - Graphite Shadow - Sensory Package - Proactive Package - BMS JB1

Infiniti has confirmed a new infotainment is set for release in 2021, most likely they meant model year but Infiniti had this to say about it last year.
"The next-generation system will consist of a single, tablet-style screen that will continue to place a virtual boundary between the two groups of functions. "

Honestly I'd say check out a G70 or Stinger if you can find one and the lease prices are good.

Or the 4th Gen Lexus IS which is rumored to have an IS F returning. The Regular IS 350 Is supposed to have the same engine as the BMW 340 (Partnership). That engine puts out better numbers than the Red Sport.

The 2020 models will have the same design but larger screens, better resolution and hopefully CarPlay. When our Infiniti trainer came by a while back, the Signature models were projected to have CarPlay, hence not having Navigation, but that was not the case.

What? That really doesn't make any sense, the IS F would need to be running on a BMW platform, which wouldn't make any sense as Toyota just released a new architecture for a twin turbo V6,
the car hasn't' been seen in testing, and it would totally undermine the newly produced Supra.

Also the B58 really doesn't put out better numbers... it's down about 40-50WHP on the Red sport and is only up 20ft-lbs of torque and the VR30
looks to be the better tuning platform..

You must be talking about the 2020 MY of 340. I think it's going neck and neck with RS
