The INFINITI Q50 doesn’t get significant changes between the 2020 and 2021 model years. Aside from a few minor adjustments, the 2021 INFINITI Q50 is essentially the same luxury sedan as the 2020 INFINITI Q50. The 2021 Q50 keeps the status quo following a more significant update for the 2020 model year. The 2020 Q50 added some new features and saw some reshuffling to the trim lineup itself. In 2020, the Q50 got an updated infotainment system that included Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as standard tools for the first time. Additionally, the trim lineup changed to replace the base trim, called the 2.0T Pure, with a new trim called the 3.0T Pure instead. A new Edition 30 trim was launched as well. Aside from the few changes from one year to the next, you can’t go wrong with the INFINITI Q50, which is an equally appealing vehicle in both the 2020 and 2021 model years. To see for yourself how the two Q50 models compare, be sure to schedule a 2020 INFINITI Q50 virtual test drive and inquire about trying out the 2021 model year as well.
Performance and Handling
Performance and handling are essentially the same for the 2020 and 2021 editions of the INFINITI Q50. There are two available powertrains for both.

Both engines run on regular gasoline, and they are both connected to a seven-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is standard, but you can choose all-wheel drive for a more precise ride and better traction and handling.
