Illuminated Kick Plates with Infiniti logo added $465.
This Infiniti has Zone Body construction with reinforced passenger compartment and front and rear crumple zones, slide-away pedal assembly, dual-stage front air bags with occupant-classification sensor, roof-mounted curtain side-impact air bags for front and rear, and a traction-control system integrated with Vehicle Dynamic Control (especially useful this time of year, even in the South and Southwest).
Approaching my Q50, sequential welcome lighting lit the interior and exterior for safety. Rear passengers entered and exited easily, thanks to wide rear door openings, and all passengers had plenty of knee, head and shoulder room.
Natural-contour ergonomically designed front seats were exceptionally comfortable, with complete spinal support.
Rear passengers had personal reading lights, rear console-mounted air vents and rear floor heater ducts – very nice on the cold winter days.
Power window controls were illuminated, with one-touch auto up/down. Retained accessory power allowed windows or the sunroof to be closed even if the vehicle was turned off.
We had two 12-volt power outlets, auxiliary input jacks and two USB connection ports to keep us charged and entertained. Battery-saver technology helped prevent accidental discharging if accessories were left on.
My Q50 delivered for $50,410 after adding $995 destination charges and $8,765 in options.
