Three new world’s first production performance technologies make their debuts in the Q50 – Infiniti Direct Adaptive Steering™ technology, Active Lane Control™ and Predictive Forward Collision Warning (PFCW). The new steering system allows advanced control of the Q50’s tire angle and steering inputs, transmitting the driver’s intentions to the wheels faster than a mechanical system. The Active Lane Control™ uses a camera-based lane marker detection system and Direct Active Steering™ system to further enhance lane-keeping capability and improve vehicle straightability. The Predictive Forward Collision Warning (PFCW) system warns the driver of risks that lie beyond the driver’s field of view. It not only can sense the relative velocity and distance of a vehicle directly ahead, but also of a vehicle travelling in front of the preceding one.
The new Q50 also offers Infiniti InTuition™, a fully customizable digital environment for linking various driver settings and driving characteristics to their Infiniti Intelligent Key, and Infiniti InTouch™ next-gen smart connectivity, featuring dual touch-screens and an array of advanced functions, features and custom apps.
