The 2016 Infiniti Q50 is also available with three other powertrains – a new 2.0-liter I4 turbo, a 3.5-liter V6 hybrid and the performance flagship of the Q50 portfolio, the Q50 Red Sport 400 equipped with a 400-horsepower/350 lb-ft of torque version of the 3.0-liter V6 twin turbo engine.
The Q50 2.0t and Q50 Hybrid Premium models offer pricing starting at $33,950 and $47,050 respectively. The Q50 Red Sport 400 has a starting MSRP of $47,950.
