Infiniti’s new Q50 will be priced from £27,950, it has been revealed.
The performance saloon’s 2.2litre diesel SE kicks off the range, complete with a high standard specification including 17inch alloy wheels and run-flat tyres.
LED lighting, front fog lights, heated door mirrors, scratch-shield paint and chrome-trimmed twin exhaust pipes are also included.
On the inside, standard equipment features the likes of Infiniti’s new InTouch system, Bluetooth streaming, multifunction leather steering wheel and dual-zone adaptive climate control.
Cruise control, speed limiter, stop start, hill start assist, rear view camera, rain-sensing wipers and keyless entry can also be enjoyed.
A Premium grade takes the price to £30,350, and brings features such as leather heated seats and automatic dimming rear-view mirror.
The £32,720 Sport grade adds a different bumper design, LED headlamps, LED daytime running lights and 19inch triple-spoke lightweight alloy wheels.
