2017 Infiniti Q50 (Nissan Skyline)

2016 Paris Motor Show: Infiniti unveils 2017 Q50 with major improvements

On September 29, Nissan’s overseas luxury brand Infiniti unveiled the 2017 Q50 (Nissan Skyline in Japan) at the 2016 Paris Motor Show.

For the 2017 model, it set up the “Designer Park.” It added two new colors for the interior, Graphite and Java Brown, which also features semi-aniline leather. It also has a semi-porous dark wood dressing board, dark chrome trim, and black roof lining.

The sound system has 13 speakers and there’s the option of choosing Bose’s new sound system Performance Series.

Some 2017 models will be equipped with a new Telematics Control Unit that allows drivers to control each feature remotely through the InTouch app service for smartphone. These features improve safety and convenience by offering the driver to remotely start the engine, check the location of the vehicle and pursue the vehicle in case of theft.

The 2017 model is set to be released to some parts of the market in the 2nd half of 2016. Infiniti says, “The Q50 sports sedan is a major player in our favorable global sales. We’ve given the 2017 various improvements.”
