INFINITI’s wide lineup of high-class sedans and SUVs is renowned worldwide for its modern good looks and luxury appointments, but did you know that INFINITI vehicles also feature cutting-edge tech? INFINITI of Syracuse, New York, has compiled a complete guide to the most advanced QX50 technology, including state-of-the-art safety features and infotainment gadgets, below.
Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™
Over the years, we’ve all grown accustomed to interacting with our favorite smartphone operating systems and voice assistants. No matter whether you prefer an iPhone® or an Android™ device, you can enjoy using a familiar interface by mirroring your phone to your QX50’s INFINITI InTouch™ display using Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™. This system allows you to minimize distractions on the road using your favorite virtual assistant’s voice commands to listen to and respond to text messages, queue up a road trip playlist, or even order coffee on the commute. Best of all, you can do all of it hands-free.
Forward Emergency Braking
While good looks, luxury features, and updated performance are great features of any vehicle, INFINITI knows the most important consideration for any Syracuse driver is safety. As such, the QX50 comes with an advanced, interconnected system of safety features that can help you keep your vehicle and — most importantly — your family safe while on the road. One such feature is Forward Emergency Braking, which utilizes advanced sensors to detect pedestrians or other road hazards. When an object is detected within the danger zone, your QX50 will warn you. If you do not slow down, the QX50 can automatically apply the brakes to help mitigate the effects of a crash or avoid one altogether.
One of the most recently updated features of the 2021 INFINITI QX50 is ProPILOT Assist, a semi-autonomous driver assistance feature that uses several advanced safety features to allow for a more relaxing drive. The ProPILOT Assist QX50 technology synthesizes radar information, cameras, and sensors to get an understanding of the traffic conditions around you. Using the Advanced Intelligent Cruise Control and Steering Assist systems, ProPILOT Assist allows you to keep a safe distance from traffic ahead and even turn through mild curves with minimal effort required from the driver. With the QX50’s ProPILOT Assist technology, your commute will never be the same.
In addition to the QX50 technology like Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ that allow you to keep in touch hands-free while you’re on the go, INFINITI also developed a masterful Head-Up Display in the luxury crossover to help you keep your eyes on the road while remaining aware of your vehicle’s vital metrics. The QX50’s Head-Up Display uses fighter jet-inspired technology to project key information onto your windshield to help direct your focus where it belongs – on the road. Your QX50’s Head-Up Display gives you handy turn-by-turn directions fed from your navigation system for when you need help driving from Utica to Ithaca, a read-out of your speed, and displays warnings from your driver assistance technologies.
