Do you think the Infiniti Q50 Refreshing or Revolting? and why?

The article below talks about how the Q50 can be refreshing or revolting, along with some opinions from others on the Q50:

Along with a new name, the Infiniti Q50 gets substantially revised styling. Compared to the G37 sedan, the Q50’s updates are several evolutionary steps forward as the current car is beginning to look dated compared to the new crop of entry-level luxury sedans. Did Infiniti succeed at making the Q50 fresh in its segment?

Up front, a new hourglass shape begins at the base of the A-pillar and flows inward down the power dome hood, between the “double arch” grille and headlights where it flows outward around the lower intake. New LED running lights sit in the lower fascia below the pulled-back headlights with LED eyebrows.

Aggressive bodylines define the Q50’s voluptuous sheetmetal and muscular proportions. A cutline flows from the top of the headlight along the bottom of the greenhouse. Another bodyline flows from the top of the taillight over the rear haunches. Behind the thick chrome at the edge of the rear quarter-window, is the brand’s familiar C-pillar. Seventeen-inch alloy wheels are standard, while 19-inch wheels are available.

Out back, trapezoidal taillights replace the L-shaped units on the G37. The rear license plate moves from the bumper to the trunk lid and is flanked by the taillights on the side and chrome strips above and below.

The revised interior is said to be roomier and more comfortable with new ergonomic seats as well as a streamlined dashboard and center console. 2014 Infiniti Q50 sedan cockpit 300x187 imageThinner front seats with redesigned seatbacks open up rear kneeroom, while the B-pillar has been moved forward for easier ingress and egress. New aluminum interior trim is standard. The center console features a split-screen design with the more popular apps for the Infiniti InTouch telemetric system displayed on top, while other content is shown on the bottom screen.

Do you like the 2014 Infiniti Q50’s refreshed look? Does it separate it from the rest of the pack without being too polarizing? Share your thoughts below.

In last week’s Refreshing or Revolting post, several readers agreed that the 2014 Toyota Tundra doesn’t have the best front end styling. GinjaNinja: “Along with the atrocious looks, Toyota locks in a solid last place for powertrain tech and fuel economy.” Drivensite agreed saying, “Revolting. What a letdown.”

Some liked the new looks. LoCo thought “The updates to the exterior and interior are refreshing. This is a good looking truck that borrows some of the more angular features from the 4-Runner.” Kyle echoed the sentiments saying, “Refreshing, on the looks department.”

It's refreshing to be, I always felt the G35 and G37 design was far too simple and dull looking. The Q50 has a design that's timeless which won't look dull anytime soon.
