A chiseled new fascia, a fresh, modern cabin, and the addition of Infiniti’s ProPilot autonomous driving tech are just a few of the features found on the updated 2018 Infiniti Q50 sedan.

Making its debut at the Geneva Motor Show this past March, the 2018 Q50 2.0t Pure (aka the base model) is a modest $250 more expensive than the outgoing version, which started at $33,950.

The next-up Q50 2.0t Luxe replaces the Premium trim, but comes with the same 2.0-liter turbocharged engine and can be had for $36,550, or $38,550 with all-wheel drive equipped. The latter of the two the most expensive option with the base 2.0-liter engine.
