Just ran numbers on Edmunds for 2013 G37 Sport. MSRP: $42,855; Invoice: $40,057; TMV: $38,212. These prices are more in line with a TL, not an RLX.

This car is far better looking on the outside than the new IS. You can really see the Essence styling cues in the design. Interior is pretty good too, though Lexus has really nailed the interior in the IS/GS IMO. I definitely like the look of the Q50 better than the G37 sedan and am very curious to see how the Q60 turns out....

MSRP of $43,700 for the hybrid before options? Not bad. Wait a year and they will be discounting these things like no tomorrow.

so fully loaded hybrid will be at $50k.

Q50 Sport should be around $43-46k with all options included (current G37S has 0 package)

Not bad! but no stick = fail!

– Stunning New Design, Featuring Engaging Performance and Intuitive Technology,
Goes on Sale in Summer 2013 –

NEW YORK (March 27, 2013) – Infiniti Motor Company Limited today announced an introductory pre-order Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price* (M.S.R.P.) of $36,450 USD for the all-new 2014 Infiniti Q50 sport sedan, which goes on sale in summer 2013 at Infiniti retailers in the United States. The special introductory pricing is $900 lower than the 2013 Infiniti G37 Sedan starting M.S.R.P. The "popularly equipped" Q50 Premium model with an optional, advanced navigation
system is introductory priced at $40,700 USD.

The 2014 Infiniti Q50 is designed to stretch the boundaries of what a sports sedan can be – with such advanced features as the world's first Direct Adaptive Steering™ technology and Active Lane Control. The Q50 is offered with a choice of a 3.7-liter V6 or 3.5-liter Infiniti Direct Response Hybrid™ system in rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. "From world's first technologies to unmatched levels of connectivity and personalization, the 2014 Q50 sports sedan is a bold example of Infiniti's future brand direction," said Infiniti Americas Vice President Ben Poore.

Infiniti has also expanded the Q50 microsite, infinitiusa.com/all-new-Q50, so customers can not only learn more about the vehicle, they can now "configure and reserve" a Q50. Customers who reserve and ultimately purchase a vehicle for delivery during the program period will receive a complimentary iPad® mini.

Suggested M.S.R.P.s for the 2014 Infiniti Q50 sports sedan (3.7 V6) include:

Model Engine/Transmission/Drive MSRP

About the 2014 Infiniti Q50

The 2014 Infiniti Q50 sports sedan brings distinctive design, engaging performance, world's first technologies and unmatched levels of connectivity and personalization to the roads of North America when it goes on sale in summer 2013. The all-new Q50 is designed for a new generation of young, premium customers seeking Infiniti's unique fusion of inspired performance and hospitality.

Taking many of its seductive styling cues from the Infiniti Essence concept, the Q50's tight, athletic appearance blends low, wide proportions with excellent interior roominess to a class marked by unexciting design.

Inside, the Q50 interior offers a driver-centric cockpit with an array of premium comfort and convenience features. The new Infiniti InTouch™ communications system includes large dual touch-screen displays and puts communication with the outside world within easy reach, with integration of hands-free phone, moving map navigation, entertainment and smartphone apps in a way that is safe and easy-to-use while driving.

Infiniti's sports sedan performance leadership continues with the new Q50, which is available with a choice of a refined 328-horsepower 3.7-liter V6 or Q50 Hybrid featuring Infiniti's Direct Response Hybrid™ System with Intelligent Dual Clutch Control. All models come equipped with a refined 7-speed automatic transmission with available solid magnesium paddle shifters. The Infiniti Drive Mode Selector with a range of personal settings is also standard on all models, part of the advanced customizable digital environment system that allows drivers to create unique settings for engine, transmission, handling and steering settings.

Two new world's first production performance technologies make their debuts in the Q50 – Infiniti Direct Adaptive Steering™ technology and Active Lane Control. The new steering system allows advanced control of the Q50's steering effort and responsiveness, transmitting the driver's intentions to the wheels faster than a mechanical system. Four different steering settings are offered, allowing customization by driver preference or road conditions. The Active Lane Control uses a camera-based lane marker detection system to further enhance on-center driving capability and improve vehicle straightability.

The 2014 Infiniti Q50 3.7-liter V6 and 3.5-liter Hybrid models will be available with a choice of rear-wheel drive or Intelligent All-Wheel Drive, and in a range of well-equipped models, including versions with special sport appearance and performance features with sport brakes and sport suspension tuning.

Lame! I hate that more manufacturers are dropping manuals in their sedans. More and more, manuals are only available at the extremes of the market - in the cheapest cars or in luxury models only and even the luxury makers are dropping them.

Sure a dual clutch is going to be quicker, but it still does not provide the same level of driver engagement and fun factor as a manual.

If memory serves me right, BMWs take rate on manuals is as high as 20% on the 3er.

All personal preference...its good looking...but I'll still take the new IS over it, just my opinion.

Infiniti is also still on my shit list for this stupid re-naming BS.

The IS? No way.

Looks definitely are subjective because that car looks terrible.

In North America alone, or total world production figures ?

Because in Europe, manual transmissions are very popular together with small displacement gas-sipping engines.

At this point my ranking as far as styling with the Japanese brands is

Infiniti > Acura > Lexus

Lexus is taking those sharp lines way overboard. I don't know WTF they're doing with the IS and LF-LC. Infiniti has that wavy, curvy look down the way I like it. Acura is very vanilla but their recent crop of vehicles is getting better.

I just wish Infiniti would veer away from the blow fish look with the FX. I honestly like my 1st gen FX more than the 2nd gen

With the style on top Japanese brands, it's either spindle, angry fish or power plenum on styles.

That said, what's up with the multiple screens these days?

^^ I would tend to agree that for many (not all models) Japanese Lux brand models, they sure are "off the mark" in terms of styling.

Far from the beautiful designs coming from the German makes.

First gen FX > 2nd gen.

Ever since the 2nd gen FX, Infiniti's designs went off the deep end.

this is the best of the Infiniti sea creature designs. I still don't like them, though, but this is not bad. I like the Transformers-ish eyes in the headlights.

Infiniti Q50 Prototype

Came over to Boston from Tennessee. Was here for couple hours.
but Prototype one...
Yes I did start the car in there for a second and loved the exhaust sound.
Same engine same specs but awesome design and features...

All LEDs, even fogs and they are bright.



Parks are on, led strip kind of thing on top and that round leds around the lens
Bottom one is the signal, I was amazed how bright it was..like those new BMW ones



White door handle leds were ok



I've never liked G series because of the round edges they use on Infiniti.
(Why I love TL is the sharp edges)
I guess they finally thougt it wasn't sport enough so they added that sharp finish on the front bumper

Although rear is still round BUT unlike the old G37
Car sits straight on the road from the rear...edges doesn't go to inner..















Details on the doors are great..



Not sure if nav comes up on that middle screen. Couldn't bring it up





Next gen tech... just perfect







I think this is the $49K model.
If you look at the lower grille, left side is closed. I thought radar thing goes there but the guy said no, it goes inside the top grille.

Didn't know why is the lower grille is closed like that (left side on my pictures)
He said it's prototype, so....not final

Dad loved it too, he has 11' FX but he is thinking to trade it with a Cayenne
Mom's MDX is next but will trade that with the new MDX this Summer
If JX has a bigger trunk then MDX while all 3 row seats are up. He will get the JX
I stay with ma love TL
and just bought an MK4 GTI for brother today..

So sorry for the bad quality pictures... tried my best with HTC One S

Not only back, even sides.
Sides match with rear which still shows the old G37 DNA, but front is totally different.

I call bad design

Lexus? Exactly
http://image.motortrend.com/f/roadte...-front-end.jpg

oh and rear reminds me of KIA
oh and Avalon
oh and Lexus ES



Edit:
Forgot this



Only one led but it was pretty bright
