Infiniti Q50S to fit the hydraulically boosted G37-Steering System for 2016
Infiniti Q50S to fit the hydraulically boosted G37-Steering System for 2016

If you have been disillusioned by the detached Q50 Sedan which replaced the sporty G37 as its successor, then we have good news for you. For 2015 Infiniti is still selling as the Q40. Well, the good news is that the Q50S is going to get more sport for the model year 2016 and the retro revision is aimed at the steering rack which is needed the most.

The base Q50 has an electrically aided steering set up which Infiniti is still persisting with. Though several other automakers have managed to extract good performance reminiscent of the hydraulically aided racks and make them talkative Infiniti kept on chasing the bogey. Thanks to the new EPS, now Infiniti has a better option than its wonky DAS (Direct Active steer) which incidentally offers no road feel and also lacked accuracy.

 

To everyone’s satisfaction Infiniti got the fan’s message and is taking inspiration from the past to remedy the present mistakes. While talking to Keith St Clair the head of production planning Infiniti, we came to know that the base electric assisted steering unit of the Q50 base is being discarded in favor of the hydraulic boosted steering rack setup of the G Sedan which as we know is “heavenly”.
