At the 2013 Geneva Motor Show the new Infiniti Q50 makes its European debut with two new Powertrain. It comes with a 3.5 hybrid system, and also a 2.2 liter diesel engines. These are good engines, but what you want is that meaty V6 petrol that the Americans get!


The new Japanese sports sedan hits Europe with a 364PS 3.5 Hybrid Powertrain, and a new 2.2-liter diesel engine developing 170PS and 400Nm of torque, and low emissions starting from below 115g/km of CO2.

The Q50 features an emotional design with lots of curves and twists that stop the four-door sedan look boring. It has Infinit’s signature cues such as eyes-like headlight and ‘Double Arch’ grille, as well as the brand’s latest technology features, such as Direct Adaptive Steering.

Also at Geneva Infiniti shows the new livery of the 2013 Red Bull F1 car, the LE electric concept, and a rebadged FX crossover which from now on is known as the QX70.

The Infiniti Q50 Diesel was revealed earlier this week. As we all know Infiniti has collaborative partnership in development. This new engine used in the new diesel model of q50 shares the same engine as the Mercedes C class C220 CDI. For thte Q50 this will be the only model offered in a 6 speed transmission, so for those manual go getters this will be the only one interesting. Not sure if this model will be available in North America but there will be an itch for it.

I did not know the would be the only one with 6 speed manual option. Do you know if the Q50 will have the manual option.

As of right now infiniti has made an announcement disclosing that the Q50 will only be available in the seven speed automatic transmission. It was not common for the g37 sedans to have manual transmission anyways so from there they gathered the stats fom past sales and made a final decision.

I see. It's understandable why Infiniti isn't offering manual considering it is a sedan. I will be looking at the Q60 a little bit closer. From what I understand, they will have manual.

Thats sucks though because originally i want a manual but they dont offer it in the U.S. forcing me to get an automatic. But im ok with that since my wife works in the city now and i have to pick her so left time in the city with a manual is less stress.
