Infiniti is celebrating its 30th birthday this month with special editions of the Q50 sedan, Q60 coupe, and the family of QX50, QX60, and QX80 SUVs. The automaker made its debut in 1989 as a luxury division of Nissan. There were only two models in the Infiniti portfolio at the time: the full-size V-8-powered Q45 sedan and a two-door coupe based on the Nissan Leopard rebadged as the Infiniti M30.
Those two cars live on in the forms of the Q70 5.6 Luxe sedan with its naturally aspirated V-8 and the two-door Q60, but the Infiniti lineup has expanded over the years to accommodate the high demand for luxury SUVs. The Infiniti SUV family currently includes the Nissan Patrol-based QX80, the Pathfinder-based QX60, and the midsize QX50.
This fall, Infiniti will be releasing Edition 30 versions of its entire lineup, sans the Q70 and long-wheelbase Q70L. All Edition 30 models come standard with Infiniti’s suite of driver assist tech—including adaptive cruise control, surround view cameras, and front and rear emergency braking—which is offered as part of the ProAssist package on non-Edition 30 Infinitis. The anniversary models will also feature dark chrome aesthetic details on the grille surround, fender trim, and rear finish panel. Black side-view mirrors, dark wheels, and a body-color rear apron further differentiate Edition 30 models from the rest of the Infiniti portfolio.
The 2020 Infiniti Edition 30 lineup debuts at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, and the special edition cars arrive at dealerships this fall.
