The 2016 Infiniti Q50 is finally out, and it has gotten a little bit of a makeover. The style of the Q50 has never been compromised, so let’s take a closer look. At first glance, the design has stayed true to the initial Q50 release two years ago as the 2014 model, but it has a more aerodynamic feel to it. This sleeker design is not only attractive but functional as well. The trademark crescent-cut C-pillar will make a comeback, and the three dimensional double-arch grill will return with some slight revisions. The tail and headlights have also seen some minor modifications.
