Snow belt buyers will probably want to pony up for the $50,885 Q50 Red Sport 400 AWD. The standard Q50 Red Sport 400 delivers its power exclusively to the rear wheels.
The high-performance twin-turbo Red Sport 400 tops the 2016 Q50 lineup, which begins at $33,885 for the entry-level Q50 2.0t. There’s also a Q50 Hybrid that starts at $47,955. All prices mentioned include Infiniti’s standard $905 destination charge.
In addition to adding 192 hp over the 2.0t, the Red Sport 400 brings with it niceties like sport-oriented styling, performance brakes, a Digital Dynamic Suspension, leather trim, and staggered 19-inch wheels.
Red Sport 400s come well equipped, but those looking for even more can add options like Direct Adaptive Steering ($1,000), a Technology package with a host of radar-based features ($1,850), a luxury-lined Premium Plus package ($2,250), and a few more goodies to wind up with a loaded Q50 just shy of $60,000.
Those looking for something in between will want to look for the 300-hp Q50 3.0t, which has not yet been priced. While it shares its twin-turbocharged V-6 with the Q50 Red Sport 400, this model sees its turbos boosted at 8.7 psi, while the Red Sport 400 bumps that up to 14.7 psi.
