The dramatic Q50 exterior is once again available with a choice of tailored designs according to the attributes and character of the models within the lineup. The SENSORY grade features a performance-focused exterior design, while the range-topping RED SPORT 400 offers 400 horsepower to accompany exclusive interior and exterior appointments to clearly convey the car's performance potential.
All grades are marked by INFINITI's signature double-arch grille, which creates a strong first impression. The grille's three-dimensional, textural quality offers deep detailing of the waved mesh-pattern surface and chrome surround. Rising from the double-arch grille is a smooth and commanding character line, which flows energetically through the side of the body like a wave, creating a highly fluid profile. The Q50's signature LED headlamps enhance INFINITI's trademark human-eye aspect, while slim combination LED rear lamps, derived from the Q60 sports coupe, create a delicate appearance with a sharp light signature.
The front of the Q50 SENSORY and RED SPORT 400 grades include a more angular front bumper and wider, lower air intakes (versus non-Sport models) – adding greater visual potency. Inspired by INFINITI's zero-lift approach to aerodynamic efficiency, the Q50 boasts a prominent airfoil at the base of the front bumper.
The rear of the SENSORY and RED SPORT 400 places a strong focus on the twin exhausts and rear diffuser with a two-tone paint finish – the body color is accompanied by dark metallic trim around the base of the rear bumper. RED SPORT 400 models come equipped with unique exhaust finishers and 19-inch wheels, contributing to a more aggressive stance, while also improving handling and traction under cornering and hard acceleration. The exclusive aluminum alloy wheels fitted to RED SPORT 400 models also convey a more technical aspect in their design with sharper, thinner spokes than those of the Q50 SENSORY.
The Q50's lean, robust body sides are designed to anchor the performance-oriented stance with a strong, solid bone-and-arched roofline that flows to the trademark crescent C-pillars. At the rear, the side character lines smoothly merge with the shape of the rear LED combination lights. The familiar rear double-arch trunk line completes the strong, unforgettable view from behind.
Heated outside mirrors with integrated LED turn signals are standard, while a power sliding and tilting glass moonroof is standard on all models except the Q50 PURE. For 2021, power folding outside mirrors are standard on SENSORY and RED SPORT 400 grades.
The Q50 RED SPORT 400 includes red "S" badging, mirror caps finished in high-gloss black paint, red-painted sport brake calipers and unique exhaust tips, helping assert the car's performance credentials and adding to its aggressive, confident aura.
Other exterior details include wide door architecture with narrow, roll-formed A- and B-pillar sashes that provide easy ingress and egress, as well as an open cabin environment. The body design also offers excellent airflow over both the upper and lower body portions, resulting in a coefficient of drag as low as 0.26 (varies by grade level and drive configuration). The Q50 also features zero front and rear lift.
The color palette includes two new colors specially selected to accent the Q50's contours and sculpted surfaces – Slate Gray and Grand Blue, Six other color choices carry over from the previous year – Midnight Black (premium color), Graphite Shadow, Black Obsidian, Dynamic Sunstone Red (exclusive color), Majestic White (premium color) and Pure White.
