For 2022, the Infiniti Q50 gains standard wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto connectivity, along with InTouch Services telematics.
The 2022 Infiniti Q50 comes in Pure, Luxe, Sport Tech, and Red Sport trim levels. All use a 3.0L turbo V6 engine, which is tuned for more performance in the Red Sport package. A seven-speed automatic transmission and AWD are standard across the board.
