Infiniti Q50 Red Sport Sedan
I have never driven a Q50 Red Sport before, let alone any INFINITI car, but as I was a mechanic for another big car manufacturer back in the day I am quite familiar with how the company performs.
With most cars here at APMM, we like to take them through their paces, not on a racetrack or in a workshop but in everyday driving scenarios, whether it be driving to the local shops, going to work in the city, taking a trip through the countryside or down to the beach on the weekend.
At first glimpse, the Q50 Red Sport has a lot of personality. It is a medium-sized sedan and has a very aggressive and sporty styled front end.
The lines of the car flow from the bonnet and down the sides ending into a clean styled rear end showing off the twin sports exhaust.
I personally think the style has a very balanced look; sports car meets luxury
Being the Red Sport series, it comes with extra visual features including a special body-kit, wide 19-inch aluminium alloy wheels and a set of satin finished twin-exhaust tips.
When you enter the car through its keyless entry, the first thing you notice is the beautiful leather interior, with the quilted details in the seats and red double stitching throughout the car.
The fully adjustable driver’s seat is surrounded by clusters of instruments all within an arm’s reach.
Automatic lights/wipers, driver’s seat adjustment profile, climate control, sunroof and a 16 speaker Bose sound system all come standard on the Redsport model.
This is one of the two very impressive highlights of this car for myself. The Red Sport comes standard with DAT (Driver Assist Technology) which is an extremely smart computer with a huge list of capabilities to help in multiple scenarios.
