Unlike offers from Hyundai and Genesis, which require you to lose your job in order to take advantage of 90-day payment deferrals on a new car purchase, Infiniti is rolling out the incentive for all well-qualified customers.

Effective immediately, Infiniti Financial Services is offering well-qualified buyers zero percent APR financing for up to 72 months on any 2020 Infiniti model, and will defer payments for 90 days. Not all buyers will qualify, and higher rates apply for buyers with lower credit ratings. This offer is available through June 30, 2020.

Most Infiniti retailers, which are able to be open based upon state and regional regulations, are offering remote new vehicle delivery to clients' homes using CDC suggested guidelines. In addition, most are also providing contactless pick-up and delivery for vehicle service.

Infiniti offers a number of competitive vehicles for sale including the QX50, a comfortable cruiser of a compact SUV, and the QX60, its midsize, three-row family hauler. Those shopping for large SUVs should consider the Infiniti QX80, which is priced similarly in its mid-grade to a high-end Nissan Armada and is much better priced.

Sedan lovers who don't want to pay for a German brand but are keep to have a car that looks good and drives well will want to test drive the Q50. The lone Infiniti coupe, the Q60 is a compelling choice for a sports car for buyers who are interested in a refined drive experience and sexy styling. Both models are available in 400-horsepower variants.

The QX80 and Q60 also feature Infiniti's new infotainment touch screen display. In both models, it consists of a dual-scree setup. Graphics and processing speed are much improved over the 2019 models.

Later this year, Infiniti is expected to reveal the new QX55 two-row SUV and the next-generation QX60. Both models were originally slated to have their covers pulled off at auto shows this year but the events have been cancelled. Alternative plans are in the works.

Owners of 2020 and 2021 model year Infiniti vehicles will be eligible.

Apple CarPlay is a great feature that can add maps, streaming audio, and voice controls to even base model vehicles that would otherwise lack such technology. It also offers a standardized interface that works similarly to a smartphone's built-in software, so there's no confusion about how to operate the system. Until recently, users had to have their phones physically tethered to the vehicle with a wired connection, but many automakers have begun offering wireless connectivity. Infiniti is one of them, but in an unusual step, the company says that it will upgrade older model year vehicles with the technology at no cost.

This means that if you own a 2020 or 2021 Q50, Q60, QX50, or QX80, you are eligible for the upgrade. Wireless Apple CarPlay became available for Infiniti vehicles starting with the 2022 model year, so it's a new feature for the automaker. The first model to support the feature was the 2022 QX55 and the new 2022 QX80 will offer the tech with its 12.3-inch touchscreen system. The 2022 Q50 and Q60 will both leave the factory with the feature, as will the upcoming QX60.

It's unclear how or if the upgrade will affect other vehicle systems, but it's a worthy move for anyone who owns a 2020 or 2021 Infiniti vehicle, if only to boost resale value down the road. Cars such as the 2021 Q50 came standard with a dual-screen infotainment system and wired Apple CarPlay, so the ability to go wireless would be a big bonus for some drivers.

Infiniti Wireless Apple CarPlay Owners have until March 31, 2022 to complete the upgrade.Infiniti

If you own a 2020 or 2021 Infiniti model, you have until March 31, 2022, to complete the upgrade. Infiniti says its dealers will perform the update at no cost to owners, so make your appointments now. The automaker has not announced plans to offer wireless Android Auto.

2022 Infiniti Q50 gets more standard tech

The car sees new tech and interior features for 2022.

Infiniti

The Infiniti Q50 is an aging but still-stylish sedan that offers value and power, but it hasn't quite kept pace with the crop of more engaging premium European cars. However, it's still worth a look, and to press that point further, Infiniti has updated the car for 2022 with a healthy list of standard features.

Headline updates for the 2022 Q50 are wireless Apple CarPlay and newly standard Bose Performance Series Audio. There's now leather for every trim, but in the ways that count, the car is the same as the one we saw last year, the year before, and so on.

That's not to say that the car is bad. After all, it still offers a 300-horsepower twin-turbo V6 as standard and can be upgraded with a 400-horsepower version of the engine. And, despite its aging exterior styling, it's still a handsome car with smooth, sculpted bodywork. The seven-speed automatic transmission and available all-wheel drive remain in place.

Stepping up to the top Q50 Red Sport 400 will run $56,975, and brings the more powerful V6 engine, semi-aniline leather upholstery, and Dynamic Digital Suspension, which adjusts damping settings depending on road conditions and driving style.
